InfoBasis launches Enterprise Skills Manager 4.5

Skills management technology provider InfoBasis has launched a new version of its Enterprise Skills Manager (ESM) software.

InfoBasis says ESM 4.5 now allows users to view employees' personal development plans in detail and map them against company goals, as well as producing offline skills analysis reports. The company adds that the software also enables organisations to work out both individual and team training needs, and assign job role ratings for appraisals.

As part of the beta programme for this version of InfoBasis' Enterprise Skills Manager (re-branded from InfoBasis Enterprise Skills Infrastructure), IT business management solutions provider Touchpaper rolled out a new appraisal process throughout its UK offices

Sally Spires, HR officer at Touchpaper, said: "While employee goal setting and development have always been important, as a global growing company, we felt that we needed a more formalised appraisal process which provided a central and easily accessible record of appraisals.

"The new system is dynamic, so goals and training remain visible to managers and their teams throughout the year. The technology allows managers to set corporate and individual goals and cascade them to their teams, giving employees a clearer view of how their personal objectives tie in with the aims of the company."

Ashley Wheaton, CEO of InfoBasis, said: "Organisations need to recognise that having easy access to information about their employees' capabilities, goals and aspirations is a vital component for business success.

"InfoBasis ESM 4.5 gives an organisation the tools to manage employee appraisal, training and development data efficiently. They can then use it strategically to ensure that they have the skills in place to match organisational goals."
