I.T. Co. won the contest to upgrade the HRM system BOSS-Kadrovik for holding company “Siberian Cement”. The project framework included transfer of the installed software versions to a common Oracle platform, competent technical support and license maintenance. By means of a centralized solution, a unified salary payment center for staff across the holding's enterprises will be established.
“Siberian Cement” (Kemerovo) is the market leader in the production and supply of quality cement and construction materials in the Siberian Federal District. The holding is comprised of the Topky, Krasnoyarsk and Timluyi cement plants, companies producing ready-mixed concrete under the common brand “Siberian Concrete”, and the "Volna” plant producing fiber cement products.
The company, which has a staff of about 5,000 employees, needed a single personnel management policy, applying unified standards and provisions for payment for labor to different categories of employees. The company also needed to reduce costs related to prompt acquisition of consolidated information on all the holding's enterprises. To accomplish these tasks, it was decided to create a unified salary payment center for all “Siberian Cement” enterprises, and to transfer personnel record keeping and personnel management to a common software platform.
In autumn 2011, the company organized an open contest to choose a partner to upgrade the HRM system BOSS-Kadrovik, transfer it to a common Oracle platform across all structures and perform technical support, including license maintenance. I.T. Co. won the tender, as it offered the fullest package of skills necessary to complete the project.
The personnel management and salary accounting system BOSS-Kadrovik includes five main functional modules: Staff Schedule, Personnel Inventory, Russian State Pension Fund Accounting, Time Keeping, and Salary Accounting. The project provides for integration of BOSS-Kadrovik with the Microsoft Dynamics AX enterprise management system and the “1C: Bookkeeping” accounting system. In the course of upgrading the BOSS-Kadrovik system, I.T. Co. specialists will develop more than 60 reporting and reference forms for optimal program adaptation, according to the requirements of the company's personnel policy.
The total number of users of the upgraded HRM system will be more than 40 people. The project is planned to be completed by the end of 2011.
