extensive reporting tools and improved self-service modules.

Purley May 16th 2001 – KCS, a leading supplier of people data solutions to mid-tier
organisations, will announce its next generation k-EM© comprehensive Human Resource Management Solution at Computers in Personnel 2001, on stand 26.

In this latest version, KCS has embraced internet/intranet technology to make information
accessible to authorised users anytime, any place and anywhere. Greater integration with desktop products like MS Office minimises the age old problem of re-keying information and new reporting tools have been introduced for analysing HR data in relation to other key performance indicators.

Alan Snell, sales and marketing director, KCS said: “HR is not just about meeting and
managing statutory requirements. Today’s human resources specialists need rapid access to up-to-date
information, statistics and trend analyses in order to maximise their contribution to the success of an organisation. With greater integration with spreadsheets for example, bonus and commission information can be entered into the payroll system directly by managers wherever they are located. This version of k-EM concentrates on empowering not only staff through self-service access to their own people data, but managers too, who can take a global view of the contribution that human resources makes to the business.”

HR specialists gain the tools to identify potential trouble spots, boost staff morale,
effectiveness and performance and to share vital information (where authorised) with both senior management colleagues and employees. The latest release also features Super Payroll to simplify the handling of back pay and multi payroll processing. Other modules – standalone or integrated, cover training administration, recruitment management, absence management, skills and competencies, P11D and self assessment and self-service.

KCS delivers k-EM as a managed bureau, outsourced, ASP (Application Service Provider) or
in-house solution.
