In addition, improved audience targeting and on-the-job training capabilities enable administrators to drive higher level of learning effectiveness, where by improving an organization’s ROI on their learning investment.

• Streamlined Workforce Management Experience: An enhanced user experience across time and attendance, absence management and scheduling maximize worker productivity. A combined employee record lets line and HR managers more effectively manage their dynamic workforce by proactively identifying potential issues and enabling them to take action without needing to go to multiple sources Enhanced FMLA functionality within absence management also provides additional state and federal eligibility rules and speeds processing of FMLA requests.
