Four Highlights of Open Source 3.3.1

Posted in General  by Shaun Bradley

Open Source by OrangeHRM is a leading, full-featured HR environment—and it is free. Open Source Version 3.3.1 is the second Open Source release this year and it has some great features to align and improve your HR service, including mobile compatibility.

Open Source already comes with a host of features and functions to serve the HR needs of small business or large enterprise. Some of those include:

  • Easy system administration
  • Efficient management of personnel information
  • Resourceful handling of leave, time off, timesheets, and attendance records
  • Recruitment cycle support
  • Full performance management including self and supervisor reviews

With the latest Open Source release, look for great new capabilities that include:

Open ID & Google + Authentication:  Open ID & G+ authentication increases the ease, and security, of logging into OrangeHRM Open Source.  This feature allows users to sign-in with two-step verification instead of requiring users to set—and forget—additional passwords.  This provides a seamless login experienc.

Future API development:  This release enables web services that communicate with the mobile app also introduced with this version.  The release also lays a foundation for an upcoming OrangeHRM application program interface (API).

Corporate directory plug-in: With this release, Open Source gains a valuable plug-in already part of the OrangeHRM Professional and Enterprise versions.  The corporate directory gives personnel the capability to look up, and locate, employees and administrative staff, throughout their business or organization.

Mobile app:  Available on Android and iOS platforms, this release features the OrangeApp.  In many countries, more than half of all searches are conducted via mobile device.  The new OrangeApp lets you view and conduct important HR functions when you are away from your office.  Use the app to request leave, view timesheets, and manage personal profiles.  OrangeHRM puts the power of HR mobility at your service.

Explore these new Open Source features and more at OHRMCon in New York City this October.  This unique conference focuses on service and trends in the Open community and offers you a workshop opportunity to optimize your OrangeHRM system.

In addition to rich learning and networking opportunities, conference attendees receive OrangeBuzz, an intra-office social media tool, and the new OrangeApp—for free.  Register for OHRMCon today.

    Have the APIs for OrangeHRM been released yet? If not when will they be released?

    The article says that the OrangeApp is available for this release of the open source software. I have not been able to find an app other than the corporate directory. Can you clarify that this has been released and where to find it?
