Unicorn HRO Introduces Enhanced Version of iCON Human Resources Information SystemPosted Tuesday, August 16, 2016 by Unicorn HRO
Redesigned User Interface and Expanded Workflow Functionality Deliver a More Productive User Experience
Florham Park, N.J., (August 16, 2016) - Unicorn HRO, an industry leader offering fully integrated human resources, benefits, and payroll solutions, today announced a major enhancement to its iCON Human Resources Information System (HRIS) application suite. iCON offers a redesigned user interface (UI) and expanded workflow functionality. These updates will build upon Unicorn HRO's existing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based human resources, payroll and benefits platform.
Integrating customer requests and feedback, the updated iCON features a new user interface, making the application more intuitive, visually appealing, and easy to navigate. The menu system has been reorganized, and the new Employee Overview feature allows users to view more personnel information on a single screen. All of these functions provide a simpler, smoother, and more productive user experience.
“Cloud-based HR systems leverage modern user experiences, rich employee profiles, and are made to support employees, not just HR,” according to a report by Bersin by Deloitte, an industry research firm specializing in people strategies designed to help leaders drive exceptional business performance. “A shift from ‘HR-centric’ to ‘employee-centric’ technology is here with a vengeance.”
Additionally, iCON's expanded workflow functionality allows users to define and automate their own processes for a variety of functions, including salary changes, transfers, account distribution changes, and disciplinary actions. These updates provide users with a more streamlined approach to defining workflows, helping customers configure and automate all types of simple and complex tasks.
"We are very excited to introduce both the new UI and the updated workflow functionalities for our iCON platform," explained Frank P. Diassi, Chairman and CEO of Unicorn HRO. "We believe these enhancements will help create a more intuitive user experience, empowering HR departments and employees to be more productive and bring value to their organization."
