4. The Best Practices Library (Best Practice) and the User Community

It is no secret that software products are developed and perfected as customer use expands and product requirements dictates. This happens, of course, only if the developer of the software accepts and implements client suggestions.

WebSoft has always tried to listen to the wishes of our customers, which has resulted in a highly functional "boxed" product, and a library of additional components that can be installed in your system. Customers can take advantage of the unique WebSoft best practices library (Best Practice) at a special site for WebSoft customers.

The Best Practices Library is the accumulated as a result of hundreds of completed projects and includes:

  • More than 60 system agents (regularly performed procedures - such as mailing lists, reminders, etc.)

  • More than 30 portal templates
  • Printable forms
  • Patterns for integration with external databases and information systems

For the successful implementation of the system is important not only to have access to the experiences of other companies that have used the software, but to also garner the experience and knowledge that can be obtained from professional colleagues. WebSoft provides its customers with a unique platform for dialogue - the Customer Portal. Regular discussions occur on the portal as well as webinars and active blogs. Members of the users community numbers more than 1,500 people.

WebSoft annually holds a conference in Moscow for clients, at which portal community members can socialize and share experiences in person.

5. Reliability, Universality, Performance, Safety

The WebTutor System is used by dozens of companies with many users: more than 10,000 people. In this type of environment, HR-portal must occasionally cope with very high user loads. This is due to the fact that companies must sometimes complete massive operations in a short period of time over the portal: testing, staff opinion surveys, periodic evaluation procedures, and mass e-learning on new products and technologies. The WebTutor system copes with such loads while demanding low hardware requirements.

Some statistics from our customers, confirm the above:

  • Rosgosstrah - total number of DLS users - 100,000
  • El Dorado - the number of completed tests and courses after 2 years of using the system - more than 1 million (more than 10,000 per week)
  • TNK-BP - the total number of Learning Portal users - more than 50,000 people
  • VTB 24 - the number of evaluation forms filled out in a month by HR Portal Users - 50,000

High performance is confirmed not only by long, practical use, but also through performance tests. Upon request, we are always ready to carry out further performance tests on equipment and infrastructure.

Reliability and system performance provide not only the proper architecture and efficient software code, but also the support of assistive technology solutions:

  • Clusters of application servers
  • Clusters database
  • Opportunity to work with electronic learning content without having to connect to the portal (offline)
  • Distributed content server to manage traffic
  • Distributed application server - the ability to work in a multi-server configuration
  • Ability to work in a "cloud" environment

The WebTutor system meets security requirements for modern information systems (including requirements for the protection of personal data):

  • Supports integrated authentication technologies (including on the basis of Microsoft Active Directory)
  • Supports https, certificates
  • Supports data encryption
  • Allows digital signatures (EDS) for completing data via the HR-Portal
  • Logs user and system actions

6. Support for Modern IT Solutions

High performance HR-Portal operates on the included framework (see System Framework). WebTutor supports the latest version of Microsoft, including the Windows 2008 Server. Fully supports the 64-bit version of the Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2008 Server R2 and Windows 2003 Server.

The HR-Portal database may be stored, processed and used for reporting hundreds, thousands, or evend millions of records for testing, training, evaluation, etc. In this way, the system is an important complement to modern database management systems (DBMS) offered by leading manufacturers. WebTutor supports the latest industrial databases:

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008
  • Oracle Server 10g

For smaller installations, the system can work without the use of database (XML-database) or with free versions of commercial databases (MS SQL Express, Oracle Express Edition).

If the company has already implemented a corporate information portal, the question arises as to how this portal will be integrated with the HR portal. The WebTutor system allows for different degrees of integration with enterprise information portals - integration at the level of a single sign-on, integration at the level of design, link exchange and content, as well as closer integration through implementation of WebTutor software components (Web Parts, portlets) on the portal. We have integrated WebTutor portal platforms on various systems: SAP Portal, Microsoft SharePoint, 1C Bitrix.

The standard WebTutor delivery includes components (web parts) that can be integrated with the Microsoft SharePoint Server. Supported versions of SharePoint:

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
  • Microsoft SharePoint 2010

HR-portals that are based on a WebTutor system are easy to integrate not only with corporate portals, but also with other information systems:

  • Personnel accounting systems and ERP systems - SAP HR, MS Axapta, MS Navision, Oracle EBS, Boss Kadrovik, 1C (7 and 8) and others
  • Accounting systems users - Microsoft Active Directory, Lotus Domino Directory, LDAP directories and others

In recent years, an increasing number of IT departments are using cloud computing systems. WebTutor operates in a cloud using Windows Azure.

7. Flexible Pricing, Fast and Measurable Return on Investment

The cost of the WebTutor system does not depend on the number of users. This means that your chosen set of system modules is a one-time investment. Any increase in the number of personnel, development of new offices or branches does not require any additional payment.

You can easily calculate the return on your investment by observing the reduced travel costs and improved time efficiency as staff no longer need to spend as much time on assessment and testing procedures. Typically, the cost of implementing the system for a company of between 3,000 and 5,000 people is realized withinr 6-9 months. (See also " How do you calculate the efficiency of system implementation? ")

If the application does not have the built-in capability to add a new field to a table, create a new print form, etc., the customer either has to use what is available, ie, "Box" or get a customized system that would be difficult to maintain and update.

The WebTutor system was originally built so that user specific settings made outside the core system could be introduced without interfering with product updates. Our Open Source Basics:

  • The code is open source (including the code underlying business logic)
  • The package includes tools that allow for flexibility - a report generator , create printed forms, a mechanism that sets email notifications, approval routing configuration mechanisms (workflow), a gateway to external information systems
