Description of service interface Role-based user interfaces allow key personas (employees, managers, HR business partners and recruiters) to perform actions related to talent processes including requisition creation and approval, job posting, applicant screening and hiring, employee onboarding, goal setting, skills assessment, performance coaching and assessment, career planning, succession planning, organizational modelling, and compensation planning. Each process is accompanied by a set of configuration tools where process administrators can design user interfaces and configure business rules and workflow processes. The service also provides mechanisms supporting the designing, running and distribution of operational reports and business analytics.
Accessibility standards WCAG 2.1 AA or EN 301 549
Accessibility testing We always strive to meet or exceed WCAG 2.0 AA standards. To ensure this, we test all visual design and color choices to ensure proper contrast for readability, as well as ensuring text alternatives are available to non-textual elements. With regards to more of a content and structural sense, we provide all the proper HTML attributes for accessibility devices, and enforce a correct hierarchical DOM structure.
What users can and can't do using the API PeopleFluent does not currently have a set of open APIs to allow 3rd parties to pull data directly from the application; however, we utilize web services with customers for near real-time system interaction for specific integration requirements. Our product roadmap includes secured API access early next year (2020) which will allow customers to connect with other applications and to build product extensions of their own.

Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation Our SaaS solutions are highly configurable to those given administrator permissions, which eliminates the need for costly, time-consuming software customisation. The most common configurations consist of adding new fields and modifying the layout design within our recruitment portals. Some common customisations are:
* System branding (e.g. colours, logo, font, etc.) can be configured and modified to reflect your desired look and feel.
* The solution’s nomenclature (e.g. field labels, instructional text, etc.) can be configured to match your preferred terminology. All pre-programmed terminology is consistent.
* Dashboards are configurable for groups of employees and/or down to the individual user.
* Report visibility, as well as detailed data column inclusion/exclusion and ordering, filtering, and sorting rules are configurable.

Metrics types Our reporting engine is a key to our customers’ success in leveraging our tools. SmartGrids – which can be saved as views that are accessible on-demand for fast analytics or exported to presentations and reports – are role specific (only displaying data that is relevant for the manager role and/or hierarchy), and the data can be drilled into by the manager to view individual workflow state, record, employee, or process. This information can also be configured as a management dashboard item if you wish to highlight a specific talent management process for manager focus or action.
