A human resources management system designed by ICS Computing.

About Human Resources

In today’s economic climate the effective management of Human Resources can often mean the difference between an organization’s success and failure, not only because people are an organization’s most valuable resource, they are also the most costly.

To assist with the effective management of this resource, we provide uniPims, a comprehensive Human Resource Management System encompassing Personnel Management, Absence Management, Recruitment Management, Training and Attendance Management and a web based e-HR System. Available as in-house software, uniPims can also be hosted to provide a fully outsourced solution.

Combining uniPims with our outsourced payroll service, or the uniPims in-house payroll module provides an organization with a single point of entry for all people related information.


With the increasing cost now associated with developing and maintaining an effective workforce, reducing non-holiday absence is a common goal of business today. The Absence Module with the personnel system provides all the necessary information for the reporting of employee absences, as well as the ability to analyze reasons and identify trends.

General employee information such as sickness and holiday details is complemented with absence categories, absence types and absence reasons, to provide a complete and accurate picture of an employee’s absence history. As the absence history builds up over time, the company can look and analyze trends, thus enabling greater forecasting and scheduling of work. Holiday details are maintained separately from other absences to enable holiday tracking and scheduling to be performed separate from the unscheduled absence tracking.

The Absence Module is also linked to the Payroll Management System, thus allowing absence information to be integrated with payroll information, for transmission to the ICS payroll service. The integrated approach means that elements of absence, such as holiday-to-date and sickness-to-date can appear on the employee’s payslip.

Fully integrated with other system modules and based on the WindowsTM Operating System the Absence Module combines control and management of absences, with tight security and point-and-click operation that is easy to use.

Payroll Management

The ICS Payroll Management Module is the system which provides the integration between personnel data on the client site and the ICS payroll service. A highly versatile system, it provides a single entry point for all information, as well as offering a comprehensive on-site personnel database to the client. Using its powerful in-built cross-matching system, it also eliminates the duplication of data input, thus saving time and reducing error.

The Payroll Management Module is based on the MicrosoftTM Operating System and will normally be resident on PC or PC network at the client site. The system does not have to be permanently connected to the ICS payroll centre, thus reducing any costs associated with telecom.

The system holds general employee information such as payments, deductions, allowances and absence details etc. As new personnel information is entered, such as the changes to salary, allowances and absence details etc., the system automatically extracts the data changes and transmits them to the payroll for the next processing run. On completion of the payroll, all relevant information is transmitted back to the Payroll Management Module, where it is available for on-line enquiry and reporting.

The reporting on the stored data, which includes full current and year-to-date payroll information is provided with a range of tools, including a Windows-based Report Writer and a sophisticated EIS system, which provides full data mining capabilities. Such tools enable clients to quickly and accurately analyze the stored data, thus enabling them to respond to employee queries and produce virtually instantaneous management information.

The Payroll Management Module can be optionally linked to other modules within the Personnel suite, including Personnel Administration, Absences, Recruitment, and Training and thus provide a comprehensive and fully integrated Human Resource system.

The needs of the Personnel Manager in providing a quality service to the workforce, combined with the requirement for fast reliable information on manpower planning, has resulted in the demand for a new breed of Personnel Systems.

Selecting the right person for the right job is a key aspect of today’s Personnel Management. The Recruitment Module within the Personnel System provides all of the necessary processes and controls to manage the complete recruitment process, from the initial advertising of the post to the hiring of a new employee.

The system provides data on all the recruitment activity. This normally starts in the form of a campaign, which in turn is based on a particular job set or set of jobs. The required skills for the job can then be matched to these skills as they apply.

A key feature of the Recruitment Module is the design of the Recruitment Process. Each potential employee may go through a different recruitment process, e.g. directors will be different from that of administration staff. This workflow approach to recruitment, which also provides facilities to move successful candidates seamlessly into the main personnel database, optimizes the recruitment process, thus saving time and improving efficiency.

Time and Attendance

In the current economic climate, organizations must be able to control their costs in every aspect of their operations. One way in which this can be achieved is by ensuring that employees are paid correctly - but only for the work performed.

Traditional methods of recording an employee’s time at work, such as clock cards and time sheets, are time consuming in the effort required to administer, and are subject to calculation errors which can be very difficult to identify. Even when the evaluated hours have been calculated correctly, this information has to be re-entered into the Payroll System to enable the processing of each employee’s pay.

There is an alternative method however, in the form of the uniPims Time and Attendance System, which is designed to meet the growing needs for organizations to effectively deploy their resources and more importantly, control their costs. UniPims Time and Attendance is a comprehensive time recording and attendance management package, providing a wide range of facilities to record, maintain and report on employee attendance information. It has been designed in a modular format and provides facilities for: Company Administration and Control, Employee Maintenance and Control, Analysis and Reporting and System Security. UniPims T & A is the most powerful and flexible system of its kind and provides comprehensive management reporting on the key areas of cost and manpower utilisation.

Fully integrated with other system modules, the uniPims T & A System combines the control of managing staff working on shifts, with tight security.
