Easily Access the Employee Directory

The ultimate electronic employee directory attractively designed with Dock allows your employees to find anyone within the organization with a push of a button. Gone are the days of updating printouts every time there’s an update in the staff information.

A people finder allows an employee to search and read more about their coworker prior to reaching out. They can see what they look like if they’re new and want to introduce themselves. In addition, you’ll be able to locate the department, view an org chart and access contact information in a searchable database.



Quickly Access Payroll and Benefit Documents

Free up your server space by using SharePoint and Office 365 cloud-based storage to access from any device in any location the payroll and benefit document information needed at your fingertips. You have options to create new documents, upload them and search for the information you need quickly and easily. Once you locate the file you’re searching for, you’ll have the option to download and print as needed. If you’d like to modify the view, you can display by type, modified by, file size or content type. Extensively more options are available for customization to fit your specific needs.

Each type of training can also be organized into sections such as web-based, instructor led and anything else you’d like to create.



Employees Submit Travel Requests Forms

Your employees can submit travel requests with a simple form to communicate their travel itinerary wish list. This fully customizable form can include information such as if the employee requires a hotel and rental car for overnight stays down to details of a seat location.
