It’s All About the User
Being efficient is something each HR team strive for and there are now many ways technology can help streamline and reduce workload. One of the biggest trends is devolving control of certain functions (such as absence management, holiday booking, expense processing) to the people best placed to do it – employees and their managers.
With this comes one problem – those people are busy too and don’t have time to learn how to use complex software – it needs to be intuitive and easy to use.
Selima’s new suite of software products is truly a breath of fresh air for those who want simple, intuitive applications that provide them with essential information when, and where, they require it.
We build superb design into everything we do. We do this because great design is fundamental to great usability. If everything is where you would expect it to be, if it is a pleasure to use – you will use it and you will use it effectively.
Great design then isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s fundamentally about whether your employees and managers use the software willingly and productively.
This ‘human focused’ initiative is a far cry from the early days of computing where the presentation of software was optimised for the benefit of the machine.
We already know how to collect and manage data from users, but with the advancement of computing and web browser power we are able to quickly implement more aesthetically pleasing features into our software.
Our team spend a lot of time poring over the smallest details to make sure everything is in the right place, exactly where you would expect to find it.
Most people are used to using computer software on a daily basis now, be it Facebook or Microsoft Word, and everybody has their own set of expectations about how things should work or feel. Finding where these expectations overlap for everybody is what we’re interested in, and as that expectation evolves over time our software will be there at the forefront.
