This concept has helped a lot in cutting down the cost also .

Hello Mam

Technology іѕ ubiquitous. Whether уου аrе іn thе industrialized world οr developing markets, a growing number οf people аrе connecting wіth mobile devices lіkе smart cell phones аnd very portable computers lіkе Apple’s iPad.

INTRANET-- For the communication with in the organization. Companies doesn't need extra HR for transmitting the information.

Thіѕ allows people tο communicate асrοѕѕ traditional boundaries within companies οr externally асrοѕѕ thе world.

Thеу hаνе instant access tο information аnd tο people. Smart CEO’s аrе thinking аbουt ways tο leverage thіѕ technology explosion. Many аrе already experimenting wіth virtual teams, non-traditional workplaces, аnd flatter corporate structures.

"OUTSOURCING"--An outsourcing company can often procure services at a lower cost than the buyer because his purchase of HR services such as recruitment, for example, is still fragmented.
Therefore, a provider can take over existing local contracts and realize savings by replacing them with a globally leveraged subcontract purchased at a preferential price. In instances in which the buyer tenders centrally and has already leveraged global scale, this opportunity is significantly reduced.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

HRMS packages are collections of HR modules that are designed to minimize, if not eliminate, tons of paperwork generated by human resources tasks or functions. They allow for effective and efficient tracking not only of employee but also of company information from start to finish.
Also referred to as HRMS, this kind of software solution aims to help human resources personnel free themselves from the trouble brought by cumbersome paperwork that comes with their daily tasks and functions.

CISCO VIRTUAL OFFICE

Cisco Virtual Office and the Telecommuter
The Cisco Virtual Office and Cisco Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN solutions are secure methods
to extending office-quality services to the remote workforce. Smart businesses are realizing the
benefits that a distributed workforce can provide through both flexibility and productivity for the
workforce as well as a reduction in costs through facilities and real estate. Changing the way
people work also provides benefits to the environment, including:
● Eliminating the need for travel and commuting
● Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,
pollution, and congestion on the roadways
● Reducing overall net energy consumption
● Reducing costs in energy and materials through
personal work environments over fixed offices

As an example, currently more than 14,000 Cisco employees are using the Cisco Virtual Office
solution (on both a full-time and part-time basis). Through the results of an internal survey, it was
estimated that the average employee saved 2.81 hours of commuting time per week and reduced
up to 2.5 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
In addition, the Cisco Virtual Office solution allows organizations to reduce real estate and energy
costs through the transition to a connected workplace. The connected workplace is a flexible office
environment with enhanced communication capabilities designed to improve employee
collaboration and productivity.

Respected madam
Application Service Providers. Some companies are now turning to application service providers (ASPs), which allow them to rent space on a remote system and let an outside company manage system maintenance, security and upgrades. It's a trend that's particularly suited to small and medium size companies with limited resources. That can save money and free IT staff to handle more urgent matters. And when it is done right, the fact that the software resides outside the organization's boundaries is transparent and secure. For example, US Internetworking Inc., based in Annapolis, Maryland, supports ERP packages from PeopleSoft and Lawson, customer relationship management (CRM) software from Siebel Systems, and e-commerce and messaging applications from Microsoft.

Very good evening mam,

Nowadays worldwide, 54 percent of large enterprises rate management of their virtual server environment as a critical or high IT priority, yet only 45 percent think their companies are doing an effective job in this important area.

1}

First of all I would like to site an example of YANTRAM BPO.

They provide live personal assistance as well as VPA services across US, Canada ,Australia.

They also provide legal and real estate assistance by VPA’s only.

2}

An org called Usfilter used virtual team concept to integrate those employees who were added to the company by mergers and acquisitions. They created companies Legal division by doing so.

3}

Majority of org nowadays are using HRIS that is Human resource information system.

Here is a paradigm for this point which is ERICSSIN INC.

It has added $1 million value to there org last year despite of poor market conditions.

What the company basically did was a three-phase program.

a) first of all they introduced a fully automated compensation plan which they called as E-FLEX. It provides flexible online benefit plans

b) followed by a complex pension administration system

c) it uses internet as well as intranet and managed by WATSON WYYAT.

The other companies like Microsoft, SOS ,Oracle, IBM and Softpeople are making heftier investments in IT so that cost of HR can be minimized. For e.g Sears invested $ 57 million in HR technology with Softpeople n there investment was done in 1991 and it does save $16.5 million annually.

hi mam.....

i m providing u two intranet technologies used these days.
and some of some of technologies impacting HR

introduction ---With advances in network and browser technology companies have been moving more and more of their corporate information resources to Web based applications, making them available to employees via the company intranet.

Companies found that there was a saving in "publication costs"
and an empowerment of employees through the increased availability of corporate procedures and knowledge to enable them to perform their day-to-day tasks

This has benefits, including the move towards "paperless transactions" and
the implied reduction in administrative overheads and the provision of better level of service to employees.

(1)..........B2E: Employee Self Service.............

B2E Employee Self Service (ESS) is an Internet based solution that provides employees with a browser interface to relevant HR data and transactions. This enables employees’ real-time access to their data without leaving their desktop. They can update their personal details, apply for leave, view their pay details and associated benefits, view internal job vacancies and book training and travel.

One report identified a major benefit as the provision of HR services to employees Tangible measures include reductions in administrative staff by 40% and a reduction in transaction costs of 50% and the reduction of processes from two to three days to a few hours

(2)...Portals.......

the term “portal” has been an Internet buzzword that has promised great benefits to organisations.
. To the business user the portal is all about information access and navigation; to a business the portal is all about adding value; to the marketplace the portal is all about new business models; and to the technologist a portal is all about integration. The portal was developed to address problems with the large-scale development of corporate intranets.

example----The access technology can encompass employee interaction centres like hotlines or helpdesks or enterprise portals.
"General Motors(GM)" is one of the leading HR portals implemented in the world and they have proposed three generations of HR portals

The technologies making the biggest impact in the HR market at present are:

* Employee self service
* Workflow technologies
* Vendor management systems
* Applicant tracking systems
* Hiring management systems
* E-recruitment software
* Internal mobility software
* Performance and appraisal management software
* Succession planning software
* Personal development software
* Career planning software
* Package review software
* Executives and key people management software

* INTRANET

The Intranet offers a number of important advantages over printed documents, when it comes to distributing information. Much of the material businesses print for internal use is expensive and time-consuming to produce (not to mention tree-wasting). You can't guarantee that everyone in your organization will receive the most recent, updated versions of internal documents, policies or other information. With the Intranet, however ...

* You can deliver information whenever someone needs it - any time, day or night. Users simply call up the internal Web page whenever they need the data.

* You can guarantee the information is the latest and most accurate available, as long as you keep the information on the Web server current. For example, you could use it to deliver daily sales projections.

* Updating information is easy. Information is posted on the Intranet using HyperText Markup Language (HTML). Because HTML is simple to learn, you don't have to hire a "techie" to update your information - you can simply train the same people who would have previously on paper and distributed it.

* You can cross-link information to other files using Hyper Text links. For example, you could cross-link your product literature to technical specifications and pricing information. To find specifications or pricing, users would simply click on a keyword such as "tecspec" or "price," in the product literature, and the system would automatically take them to the desired information. You can even crosslink information to other files on other servers-whether those servers are down the hall, down the street or across the country.
