Fargo, ND, United States, 2009/12/03 - Improved training records, customizable performance evaluations, COBRA tracking, and compatibility with Windows 7 highlight the newest release of Staff Files.
Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS) today announced the release of Version 7.0 of Staff Files® human resource software. Staff Files gives HR professionals, as well as department managers, office managers, and general managers in small businesses an efficient and affordable way to manage employee information. Staff Files’ user-friendly interface consists of 13 “quick-tabs.” Using the tabs, managers can quickly navigate through employee records while looking at general contact information, emergency contacts, wage rates, benefits, time-off accruals, training and certifications, performance evaluations, disciplinary warnings, workplace accidents, and the separation details of former employees.
“Staff Files is the perfect fit for businesses that don’t have or cannot afford high-end human resource software,” said Jon Forknell, vice president and general manager of Atlas Business Solutions. “The typical Staff Files user works in a small business and has multiple responsibilities. They need easy human resource software that helps them take care of their HR responsibilities quickly, so they can spend time on other tasks. Version 7.0 makes it faster to look up training information and easier to customize performance evaluations, plus gives them a more comprehensive way to track separation information about employees who have left the company.”
What’s new in Staff Files 7.0
Users can now see total hours of training by category and can search records for employees missing a particular training or certification. Different sets of performance evaluations for each location, department, and position can be created, so the evaluation categories are specific to each group of employees. COBRA tracking has been added to store enrollment date, declined date, payment amount, end date, and miscellaneous notes. A new Separation Reason field helps spot trends in why employees leave the organization. The new Absence Calendar makes it easier to see when employees are out sick or on vacation. Additional import options for text files were added to help new users implement Staff Files faster. Staff Files version 7.0 is also compatible with Microsoft Windows 7.
