App 46/60: Employee Directory

Simitless helps growing companies improve their internal communication.

Your company has expanded so much recently and has had quite a significant amount of new hires that not everyone knows who does what, who is part of which department, and who is responsible for what. You realize that such a situation can get problematic in the long run. Not only can it cause some divides and misunderstandings in the future, rather disappointingly it brings about the same thing hiring new recruits was meant to avoid – loss of efficacy and the overall stalling of productivity within the whole company. Fortunately, after having considered multiple options, you have resolved to set up a tool aimed at facilitating internal cooperation. And that is one good example of clever management: not only will your teams be able to collaborate more effectively with one another, but they won’t need to systematically channel their communication through you. It’s a win-win! Now, where does one find such a tool?

Introducing, Simitless! Among its other quite nifty apps, Simitless has an application model that enables you to create a directory of your company's employees. Consult the application model, then click the "  Use this model" button to create your copy of the app. Simitless is a system that adapts to your needs. Plus, it is risk-free. How so, you wonder? Well, Simitless does not require any disproportionate investment upfront to set your application up and running: try out the app first and then pay only for the necessary resources. At any time, you can either improve and grow your application, or, on the contrary, reduce its size and cut down on its capabilities. To save your progress, think of creating an account by following the instructions on the green buttons!

To start configuring your application, use the main menu to add the departments of your company ( Department ). While adding the departments, keep in mind that you only need to input the name of each of the added departments for now. 

Next, go to the employee table ( Employee). Go ahead and create a record per employee of your company, or import an existing list using the button. A record corresponding to an employee is defined by the employee’s name, job title, usual place of work, status (Employee, Suspended, Left), a photo, the date they have taken up the employment on, eventually the date they stopped working in your company, an email address, a phone number and of course, a link to a department record and another link to the record of the responsible employee manager.

Finally, to finish setting up your app, reopen the list of departments and select the representative for each department.

Now that your app is all set up and running, your internal directory of your company's employees ensures that your employees can cooperate with each other more effectively, thus reducing the pool of possible issues, caused by lack of information and transparency. And who knows, it could even be the first step towards building a great internal productivity system within your company.

If you want more features, but don't think you know how to modify your application yourself, talk to your local IT specialist, we will support them in setting up your system for you! For a limited time, while we are working on setting up our consultant network, we can personally assist you with getting your system up and running.
