Check Assigned Tasks Before Approving Leaves with Deskera Leave & Attendance Manager

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

We provide various points of integration between our applications. Here is another example of the tight integration that exists between all Deskera Open Source Apps.

In Deskera Leave & Attendance Manager when an employee, assigned to a task in a project (in Deskera Open Source Project Management), applies for a leave for the day of the task, the system points it out to the employee.

Similarly, when the manager is approving this leave application, the system prompts that there is a task assigned to the employee during the leave period.

Of course, do not forget to check the integration setting in the eLeave administration tab!

Collaborate & Communicate with Deskera Apps

Friday, February 24th, 2012

A major challenge that any organization faces is integration of the various collaboration tools (instant messenger, chat, email etc.) with the various enterprise applications (crm, project management, HRMS etc.). A side-effect of fast growth is often reliance on disjointed systems that do not talk to each other. Research shows that this becomes a problem once an organization reaches a critical size (usually >50). Collaboration and communication are the two things that take a major hit with growth if integrated collaboration tools are not available to the workforce.

With the new enhancements to Deskera Apps in the February release though, these issues would cease to exist. The collaboration tools that are now going to be a part of standard Deskera offering would ensure that IT managers no longer have to worry about integration between collaboration and enterprise tools. Deskera has integrated collaboration tools with enterprise applications in a web based environment to bring to you a most robust enterprise solution. Let us take a look at the new enhancements then, shall we:

  • Instant Messenger with one click access
  • Wall interface to share, communicate and discuss
  • Groups to control communication
  • Calendar
  • Personalize your profile page
  • Easy access to enterprise and collaboration solutions from one interface

Advantages of Purchase Management Software…

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Deskera ERPA purchase management software can bring numerous benefits. Let us take a look at the three most beneficial outcomes of deploying a purchase management software.

Speeds Up the Purchasing Process
Say there is a regular requirement of certain products, like stationary. Once an entry is made, it could be cycled by the purchase management software without the need for a user to recreate them. Hence recurring purchases could be handled with minimal human interaction.

Eliminate Confusion
How often does it happen that “X” places an order, but then has to go on leave? In “X”’s absence, “Y” takes over, but doesn’t know where the PO is filed, and everything leads to confusion, causing a drain on resources and time. Such situations can be easily avoided if everyone uses a centralized system where all relevant data is available to everyone. Chances of duplication of orders would be next to nothing.  The system could be integrated with other accounting systems, eliminating further confusion. Consequently, with appropriate role based access, and system integration, a central system like the purchase management software would lead to increased efficiency.

Provide Meaningful Insights
A purchase management system that tracks all relevant data could provide relevant reports and meaningful insights. It could be used for supplier comparisons, or monitoring the health of the supply chain. Such insights can be invaluable and lead to direct cost savings.

As one can observe, all the above would lead to significant cost savings, improve efficiency and create a robust, people independent system. Deskera ERP provides powerful purchase management capabilities which are further integrated with the entire accounting flow. This creates seamless information flow between different departments, enhancing the efficiency by an order of magnitude.

Deskera eLeave – September Release

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Deskera eLeave Manager got an uplift with the latest September release. With the introduction of the new features, the best leave and attendance management system just got better.

Let us take a quick look at the new enhancements:

  • Admins now have the option to add annual holidays specific to a year. Say for example during general elections, or the soccer world cup final. These holidays would not be available in other years unless they are categorized accordingly
  • A new role for HR, with greater access rights, has been added to the system. HR can now access more exhaustive reports and get the complete picture behind employee leave behavior
  • Employees now have the option to apply for leaves in multiples of half day. So if someone wants a leave for one and a half day, they can select the appropriate drop-down option and get it

In addition, soon a new UI would be added for administrators to provide restricted access to certain users based on requirement. This would provide greater flexibility than the simpler role based structure.

Please visit Deskers eLeave to know more.

You could sign up for a free demo of the application at Deskera as well.

Building Custom Reports in Deskera CRM

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Deskera CRM Custom Report BuilderBusiness challenges differ with time, requirement and industry. While certain reports might be relevant to certain organizations, e.g. Geographic distribution of Sales might be important for a company which operates in multiple areas, an organization with centralized operation might not find it as relevant. Similarly, with changing business priorities, certain reports might be required at certain times.

We understand that with changing business priorities, the kind of data that decision makers look at is going to change. To address this, Deskera CRM contains Custom Report builder, allowing creation and generation of relevant reports on the fly.

Custom reports allow the real time creation of reports and allow the decision makers to get information from data. Deskera CRM has the capability to create and generate custom reports based on business needs.

Please view the presentation below which explains how custom reports can be easily created using Deskera CRM.

Indian SMBs witnessing a boom…

Friday, July 1st, 2011
Indian SMBs (small & medium business) are seeing growth like never before. With the upturn in economy and cost effective and efficient alternatives available due to cloud based applications, business was never so good for a small sized company.

We have reports indicating an increase of 60% in the invoicing for our Indian clients in 2011. This is a staggering number by any means, and is a direct indication of the economic growth.

This growth was expected. With the increased usage of cloud applications, organizations are able to redirect resources to critical business activities. It is not a surprise that they are selling better than the competition

Indian SMBs which have still not gone for cloud based applications are quickly moving to not lose out to the competition. Traffic from the Indian subcontinent on Deskera’s website has increased by more than 80% this year.

It is important to note that counterparts in SE Asia and North America have switched to cloud applications some time ago, and provide testimony to its success. In this respect, Indian SMBs were slow to react and are playing catch up in the global arena. But now that the industry has woken up to the advantages of cloud, it is moving in with amazing speed.

What do you think about this growth? Do you think cloud is a factor in the rapid growth amongst Indian SMBs?
