Market Leader Workscape Unveils Business Rules Engine to Support Flexible Total Rewards Management

Sophisticated Functionality Combined With Ease-of-Use Enables Workscape EligibilityManager™ to Reduce HR's Reliance on IT Staff

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) -  Workscape, Inc., a leading provider of integrated HR solutions and services, today announced the capabilities of its new Workscape EligibilityManager™, a versatile business rules engine that enables Human Resource (HR) departments to manage business changes by rapidly defining, editing and publishing the powerful eligibility assignment rules that drive complex compensation planning, performance management and other total rewards management processes. Through a simple yet powerful web-based user experience, business users within HR can now easily filter data from the ERP, HRIS, or other system of record and manage group eligibility based on an unlimited number of criteria -- without the need to involve IT staff.

Unlike other industry solutions that only permit rules to leverage a limited set of criteria to drive eligibility, Workscape EligibilityManager can use any employee attribute and an unlimited number of attributes to create compound rules to support any business criteria. For example, if the company decides to offer a special bonus to project managers in the manufacturing division who work in the New York tri-state area, the HR department can rapidly respond to that unanticipated business change by using EligibilityManager to filter data from the system(s) of record and create the new group.

"We designed EligibilityManager to provide our clients with unlimited flexibility. HR professionals need to create eligibility groups based on changing business rules and cannot wait for the availability of technical staff from IT," said Tony Marzulli, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Workscape. "By using EligibilityManager, HR departments can react as quickly as business needs dictate regardless of how complex the requirements are."

EligibilityManager works in concert with Workscape SmartSync™ and Workscape GroupManager™ to update in-process compensation and performance processes based upon data changes, and to automate eligibility assignments yet accommodate individual overrides. This family of solutions provide powerful and flexible approaches to importing raw data located in the ERP, HRIS, data warehouse or other system(s) of record to build groups that drive plan and program eligibility and support a company's total rewards strategy.

EligibilityManager is generally available and already in use by almost a quarter of Workscape's clients. For more information on Workscape EligibilityManager, visit workscape.com/em.
