The key features of the Cezanne Connect configurations are summarised below:

  • Best practice framework - reflects the way leading organizations support HR planning processes, including succession planning, leadership development and talent management.
  • Competency management - provides the framework for aligning employees' competencies with job requirements and strategic business goals.
  • Powerful search capabilities - ensures you can quickly locate information about people and positions. Search results can be exported to Microsoft® Excel, Microsoft® Word or CSV file format, to allow further manipulation of data.
  • Comprehensive reporting* - incorporates an extensive library of pre-defined reports. Custom reports can be readily developed.
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use self-service interface - extends the use of your system beyond the central HR department, allowing you to enable regional HR staff, line managers and even employees to engage in HR planning processes. Users can quickly access information and complete tasks with little or no training.
  • Adds value to existing HR systems - designed to work independently or alongside ERP or HR systems. Relevant data can be imported, avoiding duplication of effort.
  • Roles-based approach - automatically presents the user with the appropriate user interface (and data) according to his or her role and country of location.
  • All-web architecture - designed from the ground up as a web application, rather than an adaptation of an existing client/server application. No legacy 'baggage'.
  • Ideally suited to enterprise-wide deployment - offers easy deployment and lower maintenance costs than legacy client/server applications and their web add-ons, since all software code is installed centrally on the server(s). The full system functionality is accessible from anywhere through a standard web-browser.
  • Integrated workflow engine - streamlines administrative processes, increasing productivity and improving service delivery by automatically routing tasks and managing the flow of information.
  • Automatic alerts - highlight issues if processes stall or key performance indicators are exceeded.
  • Powerful knowledge base - centralized management of data and processes ensures a shared view of information, avoids data duplication and improves business efficiency.
  • Employee-based and position-based organizational structures - addresses both private and public sectors requirements and enables position control and vacancy tracking.
  • Point-in-time reporting - provides historic or future-oriented snapshots of your organization for trend analysis and business planning.
  • Gap analysis - provides easily-understood graphical reporting that helps quickly highlight recruitment and development needs.
  • In-built organization charting - charts directly from your data, making it easier to visualise the shape of your business and keep reporting relationships up to date. Can also be deployed with HRCharter to offer additional charting and HR planning capabilities.
  • Deployable on web server farm - offers improved performance, scalability and fail-over support.
  • Advanced security based on hierarchy of user roles and sub-roles - eases security administration and provides for the higher levels of granularity required for enterprise-wide use.
  • N-tier architecture - conforms to Microsoft's DNA Architecture and supports dual firewalls, which offers more robust security, as demanded by today's intranet and extranet deployment scenarios.
  • Email support - integrates seamlessly with any MAPI compliant email application, enabling emails to be generated within the Cezanne Connect system.
  • Native support for XML - improves integration capabilities with payroll and other systems through new XML data interchange technologies.
  • Uses XSLT templates and XML for presentation of data - enables screens, fields and messages to be tailored quickly using Cezanne Connect's configuration utilities.
