Are you using Microsoft Dynamics® GP or AX Human Resources (HR)? Maximize your HR capabilities by adding powerful employee performance management!
emPerform is headed to Dynamics Convergence 2014 March 4-7th in Atlanta, GA. It’s a great opportunity for us to mingle with the Dynamics Community and catch up on the latest and greatest solutions for Dynamics. emPerform was built on the idea that simple and powerful will always be better – and as such we offer clients the ability to integrate their emPerform data with their HRIS, Payroll solution, LMS, and/or ERP system to eliminate the need for duplicate data and to streamline all processes as much as possible.
emPerform’s robust import/export module can help ensure a tight integration with your core HR information systems. Key employee information is extracted from your HRIS so you do not have to manage everything twice.
One of our most frequent integration is with Microsoft Dynamics so we wanted to take this opportunity to explain how it works and what is possible for all of the Dynamics users out there:

There is no question about the value of employee self-assessments. No matter which assessment model you choose, from the nine-box method to the weighted metric approach, your process should begin with this valuable step. Before managers can decide where to take the review in terms of direction and tone, they should understand how each employee views his or her own performance, and use that understanding as a reference point. Self-assessments kick start the entire review process and as such, should be given some thought.
For 10 years, emPerform has been helping managers and HR set the tone for performance reviews by giving them a powerful platform for collecting the most complete and relevant self-assessments possible. emPerform self-assessments:
- Are automated with email and task reminders
- Can be completed at an employee’s leisure, with handy ‘Save and Come’ back functionality
- Are shot off to the manager once complete – no need for HR to deliver
- Are 100% configurable to the questions/layout/text that a company needs
emPerform can give you the tools you need to make self-assessments a breeze, but what about content? What kinds of questions should you ask during the self-assessment stage? The answer will depend in the size Read more

What are you using for appraisals and performance management? Paper? Spreadsheets? Fax? A tediously formatted document that employees and managers don’t want to use? A makeshift in-house system designed by your IT department as an attempt to solve your appraisal nightmares? Nothing at all? Any of these answers wouldn’t surprise us.
Our close contact with HR professionals gives us access to plenty of horror stories. And too many of these stories are about outdated (pre-emPerform!) management strategies for appraisals and overall performance documents.
We admit we’ve seen some pretty crafty solutions, including meticulously formatted spreadsheet forms with umpteen versions floating around and some very ‘attractive’ and buggy intranet-based IT web forms. Over and over again, we see a focus on executing the process and very little time and focus left over for strategic performance management tasks and analysis. So what are some key indicators that it’s time to ditch your current processes and modernize?
