Market Leader Workscape Extends Capabilities of Total Rewards Solutions With Next-Generation Manager Self-Service Application

Solution Enables Greater Management Effectiveness, Improved Budget Control

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Workscape, Inc., a leading provider of integrated HR solutions and services, today unveiled the expanded capabilities of Workscape Manager Self-Service (MSS), an easy-to-use, workflow-driven manager self-service application that automates year-round compensation, organization, and employee status changes. By automating the initiation of workflow-enabled manager transactions, Workscape MSS enhances management effectiveness, ensures efficiency and accuracy, and reduces administrative costs.

"To keep year-round compensation changes on track, it is critical that managers follow proper approval processes and adhere to corporate budget and guidelines. Otherwise, companies run the risk of budget overruns and employee dissatisfaction, not to mention the potential for regulatory non-compliance," stated Stephen Migliaccio, vice president of Product Management. "By carefully tracking all compensation changes that occur throughout the year and providing early visibility into potential issues, Workscape MSS can reduce compensation budget overspend to zero."

Nearly 25% of Workscape's Talent Management clients already are benefiting from the Workscape MSS solution, which shares a common platform and common infrastructure elements, such as budgets, user hierarchies, groups and eligibility rules, with other applications in the Workscape Total Rewards suite. The solution also supports a wide range of compensation elements and automatically enforces HR policies and budgetary guidelines for compensation transactions.

Workscape MSS provides greater visibility into an organization's guidelines, budget levels, and business rules, as well as enables managers to configure any type of event, such as an employment status update or an employee bonus recommendation. With dynamic, visual decision support tools, the application prompts and guides managers through the transaction process to ensure accuracy.

In addition, the solution supports the requirements of organizations ranging from regional companies to global enterprises through its four data centers in Boston, Atlanta, Frankfurt, and Hong Kong. Workscape MSS also meets stringent security requirements by providing high availability, full redundancy, robust security, and real-time monitoring through a hosted SaaS delivery model.

The company shared the details of this offering from Booth #601 at the WorldatWork Total Rewards 2010 Conference and Exhibition being held at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, from May 16-19. Workscape also is a silver sponsor of the event.
