Streamline your HR processes
The importance of having a robust and streamlined HR department is a well-documented subject, as it has long been understood that the smooth running of this function is integral to the organisation itself. Global companies have the power to invest significant sums of money to ensure that HR processes are as efficient as possible, with the explicit aim of reducing costs and ensuring there is a seamless view for both internal and external stakeholders. The HR department’s business goal is primarily to improve the overall productivity and efficiency of the organisation.
Here at Stream Group, we are able to bring together legacy systems, data and stakeholders in order to provide significant cost-savings and streamlined solutions at a fraction of the traditional costs. Our solutions allow the HR department to focus on its core role, reducing or even eliminating the high volume of processes and transactions that so often make up the day to day work load. Manual processes are often subject to human error as well as being costly and time-consuming.
Here are some examples of where Stream Group can help ...
Employee self-service portals
I would hope that the mention of the word portal doesn’t immediately set off alarm bells in your mind – if it does, why not have a read of our white paper to set your mind at rest! Employees are these days becoming more and more familiar with the concept of self-service portals in other parts of their lives, and can readily make the transition to one which supports the integration of HR processes with your back-end systems. Businesses, on the other hand, are becoming even more aware of the benefits of self-service functionality in general, and many are looking for ways to achieve a single gateway for all their employee needs.
This is where we can help. Using Mendix technology, we have a flexible framework built around the Employee Self-Service portal which puts information at your employees’ finger-tips. The portal will provide a personalised environment for each employee based on a number of parameters, including their role, location, context, authorisation level and personal preferences, and yet it is still based on a flexible framework that can work within the unique parameters of your organisation.
One of the most time-consuming processes for any HR department is that of bringing in new staff. On average, businesses take up to 1 man month to on-board a member of staff, once all the many setup tasks have been completed... and that’s when everything goes smoothly!
Using the core Mendix technology, we have also created an On-boarding portal. This is an integrated development which supports both the recruitment and the on-boarding process and can even be provided fully integrated with your SAP HR system. As an integrated environment, the portal can significantly reduce the delays, error sensitivity and the complexity of the recruitment process right through the joining process. In addition, other departments and functions can be integrated within the portal, so that the issuing of additional tasks (such as the provision of laptops and mobile phones or security passes) can all be controlled as part of the process.
Whilst clearly providing huge savings to the HR department as a result of simpler, more transparent processes, new employees can also benefit from the implementation of the On-boarding portal, allowing them to start working quickly with an efficient process to assist them joining the organisation.

These examples of portals are just some of the tools that we are able to provide to your organisation to integrate, streamline and smooth out the HR processes to allow your team to focus less on the day-to-day administrative tasks and more on the efficient running of the organisation.
The underlying framework of all our portal solutions, powered by Mendix, include standard features such as security, work-flow management, event and business rule management, integration and presentation. In addition, the solutions are agile and scalable, making them uniquely suited to grow with the needs of your company.
Both the Employee Self-Service portal and the On-boarding portal have a number of standard process templates for common processes, but these are fully customisable to suit your specific requirements, as well as having the ability to integrate with your existing data and functionality. More importantly, our solutions are highly cost-effective, providing quick return-on-investment, and showing tangible results to the organisation within a matter of days.
