PDS, provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions, announced Vista 7.0.8, the newest version of its flagship HCM platform.

The most notable enhancement to the product is its new employee engagement features increasing the interaction between employees across the organization. Other major updates were made in the Vista Recruiting solution, in managing employment and payroll history data, and in modifying workflows.

“We are excited about the new employee engagement features now offered in Vista,” said Pat Palmer, President, and CEO at PDS. “More organizations are adopting employee engagement and Vista is at the forefront of this rapidly increasing trend. We are continually focused on enhancing our solution to provide our customers with the latest and greatest in technology advancements. This release allows the HR and payroll teams to work as efficiently as possible and to increase the interaction with and between employees, as well as with applicants.”

Vista now offers employee engagement features that allow staff to easily search, interact and engage with others across the organization. Employees can access and manage their own “Wall” where they can easily manage their daily tasks. They can also view their co-workers’ profiles, calendars, FAQs, and more through the Employee Directory in Vista. Furthermore, users can more easily interact with their co-workers using the Wall, send feedback and take notes. Through Vista’s 360 Reviews feature, employees can do reviews on other employees. This is an informal way to complement another employee on a job well done. Lastly, with the new Twilio SMS Integration, users can also easily send text messages to co-workers within Vista, fostering more interaction. Vista now serves as the go-to place for staff to go each day.

Overall enhancements have been made to the Vista Recruiting solution to streamline the application process further. Applicants can now create an account, upload a document and apply for a job within two minutes. While recruiters are now able to search resume documents by keywords, create standard interview questions and send email or text reminders to applicants regarding tests and/or interviews.

Additionally, PDS made a number of technical updates to Vista. With the new workflow proxy, users can now define a proxy (alternate person) when someone else should handle workflows that are routed to them. For example, if they are going to be on vacation, they can delegate tasks to a co-worker. For the HR or payroll team, they will also be able to configure new workflows in a test environment and automatically import it into the active environment – eliminating the process of moving from one environment to another.
