After extensive testing, rexx systems, leading provider of e-recruiting and HRM solutions, have announced release 5 of the rexx HR software for international use. The new version combines the proven capabilities of the last 10 years, as well as numerous innovative enhancements.
„rexx HR 5 is much more than simply another version of our Human Resources Software. During conception and development the system was scrutinized from the ground up. In this case each individual module, as well as the wide variety of possible combinations were tested on the basis of user-friendliness and sustainability. The result is software, which we are convinced will set new standards in the IT support of human resources management”, Norbert Rautenberg, Managing Director of rexx systems, presenting Release 5.
As well as providing proven features such as the digital personnel file, time management, facilities management, staff appointment, target agreement, skill management and the HR data warehouse, HR 5 offers multiple new modules. For example comprehensive event management, a specialized career and succession planning module as well as innovative features in the area of integrated org charts, simulations and talent management.
“The support of varying processes in talent management is certainly the area with the most changes. In recent years new methods have been established by HR managers, which, in turn, have raised corresponding demands on software solutions, demands we reflect based on modern technologies in rexx HR.”, Norbert Rautenberg explains the emphasis on processes in personnel development.
Alongside innovative functionality, Release 5 offers a fully revised technology, which enables a whole new dimension of flexibility in adapting the standard software for individual customer requests. Via the administration interface, fields are created and configured in detail for all purposes. Workflows are also simply and quickly created with the help of a generator. This flexibility is rounded off with the presentation and analysis of data. Thus it is possible to combine the various files and customized lists with the required filters as flexible queries. All with the aim of providing the user with exactly the information he requires, where he needs it.
To improve the functionality for HR users, managers and employees, the entire user interface has been revised, reflected in a modern look and feel. An essential component of this is the self-service portal. Under the motto “Enterprise Social Network” and in addition to tried and tested features such as holiday management, time management, changes to master data, seminar registration and much more, there is now an integrated news stream. A recognized feature from social media platforms, this function enables employees to publish links, photos, posts and comments. Via a subscription service and the combination of messages from the HR processes, the stream provides all current information at a glance.
In pilot projects, the release of 5 rexx HR has been extensively tested in practice. Regarding the feedback, Sales manager Bernd Michaelis-Hauswaldt recalls: “It really was fun, presenting rexx HR 5. The recruiters were impressed by the features and the interface. The feedback was also positive from more experienced rexx users – probably not least because the collected wishes of our customers made up a significant part of the new innovations. “
From the 14th to 16th October 2014 at the “Zukunft Personal” in Cologne, Europes largest trade fair for personnel management, rexx systems will be presenting the new Release 5 version of their HRM and talent management software, as well as discussing current issues relating to e-recruiting and applicant management.
