|HR management now in your hands
Employee Self Service (ESS) and Manager Self Service (MSS)
are effective tools used to help businesses handle the intricacies
of Human Resource management. In today’s business
they should form the foundation of a successful HR management
This is the view of HR and people management specialists
at Accsys, a national supplier of management solutions within
HR, payroll administration, time & attendance and access
control. Accsys is a member of the Business Connexion Group.
Self Service enables employees to view and change their
personal information on-line via a company’s Intranet.
This means they can initiate procedures such as applying
for leave and training as well as viewing payslips, tax
certificates and personal trend dashboards. Managers are
able to perform tasks at an operational level such as approving
leave, commission, and training as well as authorising overtime.
The workflow that controls manager, and employee self service
creates a structure cascading responsibility for updated
information to the employee and authorisation to the line
manager, allowing HR to “rubber stamp” employee
data. The impact is manifold, reducing paper usage, ensuring
that the correct authority is given and freeing the HR practitioner
to be more strategic.
This means a significant reduction of risk to the organisation
when fulfilling the requirements of HR management, including
key aspects such as time & attendance.
Accsys makes use of a single database system, an ESS and
Manager’s Dashboard, with ESS and MSS accessing the

This system design reduces data points of contact, resulting
in a saving of time, money and other resources. Minimal
training is required for management level users.
Teryl Schroenn, CEO at Accsys, says, “The requirements
behind effective human resource management have evolved,
driven by various market dynamics and economic conditions.
This means that resources like ESS and MSS have become that
much more relevant, useful and practical, that it begs the
question – how can any business manage their HR without
ESS and MSS.”
