Aquire, a worldwide leader in workforce planning and analytics solutions, today announced the release of OrgPublisher™ 10.1, the newest version of the company’s intelligent organizational charting and workforce reporting software used by human resources professionals at thousands of enterprise companies around the globe. Multi-language publishing features and additional browser capabilities add versatility to the substantial upgrades launched in version 10.0 last December.
Version 10.1 benefits from the interactivity of the Microsoft® Silverlight™ application framework. Users now have the ability to view charts and reports on additional operating systems (Macintosh and Linux) and through more browser options, including Safari and Mozilla Firefox, than ever before. These additional options allow increased accessibility to view and distribute charts and graphs to increased users across more systems. The built-in Silverlight technology also updates the look and usability of the OrgPublisher user interface.
“Customers who attended our recent User Conference got a sneak peak of the new, more visually attractive interface and gave us very positive feedback,” said Lois Melbourne, CEO and co-founder of Aquire. “They are excited about the more interactive look and feel of the animated org chart boxes that give quick access to employee profiles. And now users have some control to personalize their color schemes and other settings, as well as search results views. It’s quite an elegant interface that’s very easy to use.”
A benefit to multinational customers is the ability to efficiently produce comprehensive organizational charts in multiple languages. After administrators convert a chart to localized languages, they simply supply URLs for each new chart to users. Localized languages covered are Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
When OrgPublisher 10 launched in December, it delivered improved daily workforce reporting and organizational charting with an enhanced user interface, more focused search options, new chart formatting options, improved security and robust tools for succession planning and organizational modeling.
Version 10.1 of OrgPublisher is just one example of how Aquire continues to address the most strategic workforce management and planning issues organizations face. Last month Aquire launched Aquire Compensation, a compensation planning solution designed to allow line managers to more easily engage with the compensation planning process. Also in their portfolio of solutions: Aquire InSight™ for workforce analytics and talent management, and point solutions for succession planning, workforce modeling, and data integrity.
