In an earlier post I already touched indirectly on one of the projects we are doing; it is what I tend to call ‘Simply Synergy’. We aim to make parts of Synergy more goal-oriented, more modern and more recognizable within your business process. What you can think of – as just one example – is to request for a day off via a simple page which also instantly shows you your remaining number of days. So the possibility to request time off and instantly seeing your balance; we are convinced that is what would help you in the process of asking time off.
One of the parts of this research project is to move from individual boxes for searching documents, accounts items etcetera; towards one place where all the searches can be reached. Hold your horses however. Not one search across all entities (yet), but a simpler way to find what you need. One of the things I am personally enthusiastic about is that it will not only offer you suggestions based on what you typed but it will also open up your history of recently used data. Since a pictures says more than a thousand words, just take a look on some screenshots.
For those of you who have read between the lines, this is not yet a final deliverable nor is it planned for a certain date. Our intentions are however clear; to make Exact Synergy simpler to use and better connected to business processes. So enjoy the sharing but do not yet see this as an end deliverable available in your environment end of this month :-). I also tried to keep this post simple, so it leaves lot’s of room for interpretation on what you will get. For instance think of a first deliverable where the focus can be on the employee self service functionality.
