Upgrading your Personnel Manager / Personnel Director Software doesn’t need to be time consuming, stressful or expensive.


Is it time to upgrade your Personnel Manager / Personnel Director System?



Changing your HR System can seem like a big project which doesn’t necessarily come at the top of your to-do list, especially when you have all those paper holiday request forms to process!

For Vizual HR (Personnel Manager / Personnel Director) users there is now some urgency to find a suitable upgrade due to both systems being well past their ‘best before date’. The last update for either of these systems was in 2005 and they were eventually discontinued in 2009 and more and more customers are having problems when upgrading to later versions of Microsoft Windows and Office.


So, what is holding you back?

With this in mind, it is surprising how many companies have so far resisted the urge to upgrade to a more up-to-date system. This is mainly due to concerns about finding a suitable replacement; the amount of time and effort upgrading will involve; the thought of losing of all those years of key employee data; the likelihood of trying to find time for all the training to get them up and running with the new system and then there’s the cost of upgrading.


Don’t panic, there is a solution!

Thankfully there is some really good news for Personnel Manager and Personnel Director users. People Inc. is a HR system that is not only as simple to use as their old but trusted Personnel Manager and Personnel Director software but also has a tailor made upgrade package to make the whole process not only quick, easy and cost effective. As part of the upgrade to People Inc. we provide not only the transfer of all your data but we also carry out a data health check to help identify any data discrepancies which may affect your reporting and analytics.


Time for a change?

Whilst we all are very fond of our Personnel Manager and Personnel Director software they are not without their irritations. Any of the following sound familiar:

  • Why do I have to create two separate instances of absence if it crosses the end of the month?
  • Why do I have to create many different absence rules for employees who work part time?
  • Why can I not see who worked in a specific department this time last year?
  • I wish I could manage training needs more effectively
  • If only I could create better management reports such as Bradford Factor analysis.
  • Why is the Length of Service or Age not calculating properly?
  • It would be great to be able manage my Vacancies and Applicants
  • I could save hours if Employees could book their own holidays online for managers to approve.

You don’t have to worry about any of these in People Inc as its designed to overcome all of these ‘irritations’ and more!


Get some peace of mind.

In addition to the above, People Inc. is up-to-date with the current versions of Windows and Office meaning you no longer need to worry if your HR system will stop working with the next Windows update and is fully supported so there’s always someone to help when you need any help.
