Online software provider NetSuite has launched an employee resource management service that the company says reduces costs and boosts productivity by enabling workers to perform project-related chores, and access human resource-related documents.
The new capabilities are part of the NetSuite Employee Centre, a self-service portal integrated within NetSuite's overall software-as-a-service platform, which also includes enterprise resource planning, customer-relationship management and e-commerce applications.
The new Web services, unveiled this week, enable employees to track time by project, and enter expense reports and purchase requests, which managers can approve online, officials with the San Mateo, Calif., company said. HR can also use the service to provide employees with documents on benefits, job performance and reviews, company policies, new hire information, company holiday schedules and other information.
The NetSuite Employee Centre is available in NetSuite and NetSuite Small Business in five-user bundles starting at about $60 a month.
