Powered by ZigaForm version 4.5.9.2

The eBusiness Systems team is constantly working towards creating a all-in-one comprehensive platform to better manage and streamline company resources and time. Hundreds of users have enjoyed the benefit of more efficient, cost-effective business processes, and today we would like to announce that we have added three new modules to our platform’s functionality!

1.Dashboard

We have upgraded our Home Page dashboard to reflect better insight into user information and company updates. While keeping the existing design and feel of the dashboard, with all the major metrics for user and manager views, we have also added further metrics for added business efficiency.  These changes include;

New shortcuts for detailed analysis

New shortcuts on the main home dashboard allows users easy access to four main areas;

  • Leave Dashboard – Showing user metrics on leave allotted, utilized and remaining. This view allows users to have a detailed analysis on all the leave booked, pending and leave already taken.  Users here are also able to view upcoming holidays, book leave and have a detailed chart plotting vacation leave with sick leave and special leave for better analysis.
  • Overview – This view allows users to see detailed charts drilling down different time spent on different projects and clients.
  • Weekly Summary Report – This view allows users to analyse and view how their time during the preceding week has been used.
  • Our Latest Features/Updates – Allows users to keep up-to-date with new development in the eB-ISP.

Our Latest Features/Updates

Keep up-to-date with the latest eB-ISP developments through the use of dated development announcements on the main home Dashboard.

Leave and Holidays


The new leave and holiday section allows users to see who in the company has upcoming leave, allowing users to better plan group projects and tasks. This section also gives the added benefit of displaying upcoming national holidays. If there are no upcoming leaves for a relatively long time, the system will not display it.


Who is Online

This new feature allows users to see who is currently online on the system, allowing for better, instant communication through the Chat Module.

Notification Panel

With the introduction of the new chat module, users are now notified every time a new message comes in from a chat room they are invited to or created.

KPIs

The KPI section allows users to gauge their progress and help them better visualize and meet the targets set out to them. KPIs can be set according to the user’s assigned manager. These KPIs can range anywhere from percentage of billable time to time spent on particular projects or clients. The half-circle pie chart will display the KPI set out by the manager over the total time. If targets are met, the time shown will be displayed in green. If targets are not met, the time will be displayed in red. There are two half-pie charts, one displaying KPIs for the preceding four weeks and another for the preceding 12 weeks.

2. Chat Module Introducing the new chat module! Users within the system can now chat between themselves in a private and secure manner. All messages within the chat module are kept within the system and only users of the system have access to and can read the messages. Users are now able to create different chat rooms, allowing different company departments to have different chat rooms to discuss internal company projects. Each chat room will display a count of all the members within the chat rooms. Once inside the chat room, users are able to see whether other users within the chat room are available through the use of the new avatar borders for users, being displayed in green if users are currently online.

The chat module allows users to create chat rooms by themselves or they can be created by the system administrator or manager. Through the use of the notification panel at the top right corner of the eB-ISP platform, users will be notified when a new message is typed in by another user in the chat room they are in. This new feature ensures that no messages are left unread by users within the chat room.  Once users click on the notification panel, they are able to see from which chat room the new message has come from if they are in more than one chat room.

3. Training

Introducing the new Training Module! Companies are now able to upload content to train their staff and uphold company standards. The training module includes;

Structured Learning Materials

Companies are now able to upload different course material in different course categories and assign those learning materials to specific users. This allows for better departmental training, where marketing courses may be assigned and viewed by the marketing professionals within a company whilst finance learning objects can be assigned to the finance professionals within a company. Once a course category is created, different learning materials can be uploaded within that course category.

Course Information

Upon entry into a course, users will be presented with the course information. Here users are able to view;

  • Percentage of Course completed – Status Bar
  • Number of Learning Objects
  • Title of course
  • Brief Course Description
  • Start and End Date of Learning objects
  • Status of course – whether the course is Active/Inactive/Retired
  • Detailed Course Description

Course Content

In the course content, users are able to view all the learning objects within the course. The format of the learning objects can vary between video files, PDF documents, Word Documents and Excel documents. Different learning objects will have different associated colours, depending on if the user has attempted the learning object. The legend for these is;

  • Yellow – In Progress
  • Green – Completed
  • Blue – Not Started

FAQs

Course administrators or company managers can set the FAQs for each course in a clean and concise manner, to supplement the learning objects. FAQs can be segmented into different categories for better reference and efficiency. Course administrators or company manages can edit and add as many FAQs as required.

Self-Assessment Test

In the self-assessment area, users can gauge their understanding of the learning objects by attempting a self-assessment test set out by the course administrator or the company manager. The self-assessment test has the option to be set with a timer for completion, according to company policy. Different self-assessment tests can have different colours depending on the user use. The legend for these is;

  • Green – Test Completed and Passed
  • Red – Test Completed and Failed
  • Blue – Test Not Taken

Users or managers can choose to compute a report on all self-assessment test attempted, for better evaluation and analysis.

Training Log

Users are now able to view learning object attempted and course objectives assigned to them through the training log. Through this log, users will be able to view their history of learning objects attempted on the system and also plan ahead when viewing upcoming learning objects assigned to them. Through the training log, users can also get a better understanding of the course they are assigned to, with information relating to;

  • Period of the course
  • Cost of the course
  • Training Hours
  • Date of completion
  • Certificated relating to the course
