Touch-optimized mobile experience and configurable, role-based content sharing

Ascentis mobile delivery makes it easier for companies to increase HR technology adoption rates in their workforce and utilize powerful functionality no matter where they are. Ascentis’ touch-optimized, self-service mobile Web environment allows employees to manage and request time-off, access their company directory, and take action on workflow tasks through their device of choice.

HR administrators can publish content from RSS feeds and social networks to their self-service dashboard. These various types of content — also known as widgets — offer employees deeper engagement with company, department, and job-specific content. Managers can see manager-specific widgets on their dashboards, like turnover data, hiring and interview tips, benefit utilization, headcount by age range, performance review reminders, and more. Employees can see management announcements, information on benefits, and any other data that requires their attention.


Ascentis Employee Self-Service gives employees ownership over their data records and benefits

Ascentis Employee Self-Service (ESS) gives employees immediate access to all of their personal HR, benefits, and payroll information via the Web. This level of access is expected by today’s employees and its value is amplified in the drastically reduced call volumes to both the HR and payroll departments. The amount of paperwork generated in traditional benefits enrollment is staggering. Ascentis ESS can save weeks of your HR team’s time automating time-consuming, error-prone and paper-intensive processes, and giving ownership back into the hands of employees through online, paperless open enrollment period. Managing time-off and pay requests has never been easier Ascentis ESS allows employees to request time off and see where their requests are in the approval process. Automated communications between employee and manager self-service keeps all parties in the request process up to date. Ascentis ESS also helps the payroll department by providing employees online access to their direct deposit information, current and prior paystubs and W-2’s, and tax simulations to see how pay/tax changes affect their take home pay.
