It’s Not Just Onboarding

2019-06-06T16:45:09+00:00June 6th, 2019|

Human Resources is not just about bringing on new hires and managing leave requests. The reality of HR is that, over time, relationships between employer and employees will change. Employees receive promotions, change roles, undergo training, resign, and retire. All of these activities—termed as “midboarding” and “offboarding”—require the same level of attention, and can [...]

What is No-Code Technology?

No-code technology allows so-called “citizen developers” to build applications using intuitive graphical interfaces. No-code platforms allow users to “drag-and-drop” components so they can create applications that automate business processes.  Businesses are jumping on this train because it pushes application creation down to the groups that use those applications and relieves pressure on an often over-burdened IT department. With the “developers” being close to people who will use [...]

Want to create business solutions for your company?

Digital Transformation Furthers Regulatory Compliance

2019-04-23T16:00:55+00:00April 23rd, 2019|

And all too often, companies in these sectors make the mistake of using systems their staff is familiar with, rather than the proper tools, to meet compliance needs. Spreadsheets, Microsoft Word DOCs, PDFs, and [...]

Eulogy for InfoPath

2019-06-25T20:28:16+00:00April 8th, 2019|

“Alas, poor InfoPath!

2019-03-22T15:50:46+00:00March 22nd, 2019|

It’s 10 am and already I have received four phishing attempts in my Inbox – fake emails purportedly from Chase Online, Xerox, FedEx, and a VoiceMail service.
