HumanConcepts Partners with SDMS Ltd

Exeter, United Kingdom – 17 July 2008 Leading Staff Development and Personnel Solution provider, SDMS Ltd, today announced a strategic partnership with HumanConcepts, the developer of OrgPlus®. SDMS Ltd is one of the foremost developers of Staff Development and Learning Management Systems with a strong presence in the Local Government and Education Sectors. OrgPlus, a workforce modelling and intelligence solution, is now integrated with both SDMS Ltd’s Personnel Software and its widely used Staff Development Management System.

The partnership extends the value of SDMS Ltd’s Staff Development and Personnel solutions by providing users with easy and secure access to graphical views of employee information, organisational structures and directories through a web browser. OrgPlus offers managers and team leaders a real-time workforce dashboard with the information needed to plan workforce changes. By presenting complex organisational information in a visual form, the solution enables information sharing and collaborating.

The added OrgPlus capability will assist Training and Personnel Managers in planning and executing workforce management tasks such as succession planning, skills development, budgeting for training and staffing, development of qualifications profiles and communicating a corporate employee directory.

David Stevens, Managing Director, SDMS Ltd said, “Our Staff Development and Personnel Administration Systems are for all levels of the market from organisations with less than 50 staff to organisations with 5,000. They all need data presented in an easily digestible and shareable form − standardised organisational charts provide the ideal format. Our approach is to offer them OrgPlus and a starter set of prewritten charts and data views. The ability to go beyond charting with the many features of OrgPlus gives our customers the tools they need to successfully manage workforce change.”

“We are excited to offer HumanConcepts’ advanced workforce modelling solution to SDMS customers,” commented Scott Jenkins, UK Director, HumanConcepts. “With OrgPlus, users can transform conventional organisational charts into a powerful business system to make informed decisions and take action.”
