You told us what you wanted … and we listened! Sentrifugo is going through a bit of a makeover to give you our best release ever! Version 3.0 will be loaded with enhancements, selected through popular user demand. Take a look at the list of improvements we have planned:

  1. Customized Employee IDs:Users will be able to customize their employee IDs to match their organizational employee IDs. They will no longer need to maintain two set of IDs (i.e., one for the HRMS application and a second for the organization).
  2. Design Changes:A new design implementation for the view option across the entire application. Design changes also include an improved user interface.
  3. Employee Exit Date:Dates in the past can be selected as an employee’s exit date, allowing exit procedures to be initiated after the employee has left the organization.

    o   Improved user interface will allow users to view leave details directly from the calendar plugin. The number of menus will be decreased and compiled under a single main menu.
    o   Cancelling Leaves: Approved leaves can be canceled by the reporting manager at any time. Employees can cancel unapproved leaves at any time and approved leaves only one day before the leave date.
  6. Appraisals:Appraisal forms can be printed if a signature is required from the employees or managers who are a part of the appraisal process.  Users can view their employees’ and their own appraisal history.

Sentrifugo 3.0: Introducing Expenses and Asset Management

Our goal is to provide users a self-sufficient and well-rounded HRMS application which will serve all their HR and organizational needs.  As part of our promise to continually make Sentrifugo better, we plan to release the much-awaited modules ‘Expenses’ and ‘Asset Management’ in our next release Sentrifugo 3.0!! We’ll be rolling out these modules tentatively by August – September.

Here’s a sneak peek of the features available in Expenses and Asset Management:

Expenses:

Put an end to tiresome and time-consuming manual expense reporting and streamline your expense process using Sentrifugo’s ‘Expenses’. Sentrifugo simplifies the complex expense process giving you a quick, easy and transparent expense system. Employees can easily create and send their expenses for approval to their Employers. Expenses can be placed into various categories for instance food, travel, entertainment etc. Employees can also reimburse their expenses.

Upload Receipts:

Employees can effortlessly attach supporting documents/receipts or digitize receipts and store them in the application.

Payment Mode and Currencies:

Various payment modes are available and they can be tracked. Expenditures made on an international trip can be converted to your organization’s local currency.

Trips:

Add Trips for managing multiple expenses, clients and projects. A Trip comprises of the various costs incurred in a trip like travel, food, and accommodation. This helps the managers to get an overview of the employee’s entire trip expense at one go.

Advance:

Sentrifugo allows the Employers to pre-allocate a certain amount of money called Advance to an employee, which can be used for expenses incurred during trip(s) or for project(s) and client(s).

Asset Management:

Keep a track of your organization’s assets like computers, laptops, phones etc. and assign them to employees. It enables the Employers to have quick access to information related to all the assets in the organization. A user can create asset categories and subcategories. Asset details such as invoice number, vendor details, warranty status, asset images etc. can be added and then assigned to employees.

Sentrifugo 2.1.1 brought you an enhanced version of the Time Management module. You can now submit your timesheets for approval and your managers have the option to Approve/Reject them. The Super Admin can set a Weekly Timesheet Submission Reminder for all the employees to ensure that they submit their timesheets without delay and also configure a Timesheet Blocking Range, after which the employees’ timesheets will be blocked.

To make things easier, we have prepared a quick video tutorial showing you how to configure the Time Management settings. This configuration will enable your employees to fill in their timesheets. You can check the video tutorial below:

Protect Your Organizational Data with Sentrifugo’s Access Control Feature

An HRMS holds a lot of confidential and sensitive data, if compromised can lead to heavy damages for the organization and it’s employees. Hence, access to important data must be monitored and restricted to certain users only. Sentrifugo understands your need for security and enables you to protect your data from unauthorized access through the ‘Access Control’ feature.

There are 6 main role groups provided in Sentrifugo by default:

  • Management
  • Manager
  • HR
  • Employees
  • External Users
  • System Admin

Within each role group, 5 extra role types can be created. For example: Under the Management role group, you can create Board of Directors, Department Heads etc. as role types. By using the option Roles & Privileges in the module HR, each role group can be enabled or disabled to add/delete/edit/view certain features. Only the Super Admin & Management role group can assign or deny privileges to users.

Check out the following steps on how to handle privileges.

Step 1:

Go to: HR -> User Management -> Roles & Privileges -> Click on edit against a role name

Step 2:

You will see a list of checkbox options under the heading ‘Privileges’.

Step 3:

Click on the blue drop down icon to reveal a few more checkbox options available within it.

Step 4:

Selecting an option lets all the users belonging to the role type have access to the feature and depending upon the selected sub-options (add/edit/view/delete), the users will be able to perform those actions.

As we go down the organizational hierarchy the privilege options provided will reduce. You can see the difference between an Employee and an External User’s privilege options in the images below.

By unchecking the option HR for the Employee role, users who belong to the Employee role will be restricted from accessing the HR module (viewing other employees’ details).

Don’t forget to click on UPDATE to save the changes.
