Press Release Body: FARGO, ND - October 27, 2008 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. (ABS), a leading developer of small business software, is pleased to announce the release of Staff Files(r) version 6.0. Staff Files is easy and affordable HR software used to manage employee information. Managers can store, track, retrieve and safeguard information about employee benefits, time-off accruals, training and certifications, wage rates, performance evaluations, and much more. Automatic reminders alert users to important dates and deadlines. HR letters and reports are available for print and email distribution.
"We listen to our customers to make business management software that is easy, efficient, and useful," said Jon Forknell, vice president and general manager of Atlas Business Solutions. "Staff Files customers have told us they rely on the automatic pop-up reminders for important dates and deadlines, and want a faster way to add training records and enroll employees in time-off policies. So, we expanded reminder alerts and created group enrollment tools for training details and time-off accruals. These are two ways we've increased automation in Staff Files 6.0 to help our customers stay organized and save time."
What's new in Staff Files 6.0
Two new group enrollment tools allow users to quickly add information to multiple personnel records at once. The Group Accrual Enrollment tool enrolls a group of employees into a policy to automatically calculate time-off accruals for vacation time, sick time, PTO, or any other type of time-off their company tracks. The Group Training Enrollment tool adds a training or certification record, including effective and expiration dates, cost, agency, and location of the training, to a group of employee files. Five new reminder alerts have been added for custom fields that users can modify for their company's specific needs.
Many new and improved reports have been added to retrieve information about incidents, absences, reminders, and the separation of former employees. A new separation checklist has also been added to help ensure tasks, such as COBRA enrollment, return of keys and equipment, and payroll garnishment notifications are completed when employees leave the company. Staff Files 6.0 introduces a new password field for added security.
In addition to the increased security, reports, and automation, version 6.0 of Staff Files includes better organization of scanned documents, more fields for emergency contact information, an entirely new way to record details about incidents, such as disciplinary warnings and workplace accidents, and a work area optimized for a bigger screen and wider employee list column. The Staff Files Pro edition introduces a new Audit Trail to log changes made to employee records.
