OrangeHRM Releases Version 2.4-beta.4 of the Open-Source HR Management System

Saturday July 19, 2008

“Through the constant communication with our users, we are shaping the growth of OrangeHRM in a best way that satisfies their requirements”, said Sujee Saparamadu, CEO of OrangeHRM Inc. “Great attention has been given to prioritizing, selection and implementation of the new features, as we are trying to keep the balance between satisfaction of individual needs and application of broad perspective, to ensure that the product is scalable enough, as it is being used by organizations from multiple market verticals on all 6 continents”

Features in the new application include * Listing out the Job Vacancies This is where the HR administrator creates the job vacancies available in the organization. He has the option to include all the necessary information, including the job title, the job description and pay grade and employment status. * Adding Pay Grade When listing the available vacancies the HR administrator has the option to add additional pay grades to the system to be compatible with the job listing * Adding Employment Status Generally the system itself has defined certain employment status at its inception. But if the company needs the HR administrator has the right to add company specified Employment Status to the system when listing out the job vacancies * Selecting Hiring Managers for the job vacancies It’s compulsory for the HR administrator to select the hiring managers for each job vacancy listed out. This will let the hiring manager receive a notification when someone applies for the particular job that he/she has been appointed as the hiring manager. * Candidates Start Applying for the Job Vacancies The wonder of the OrangeHRM recruitment module is that the candidates can never trace out that they are using the OrangeHRM system, but rather they feel that it’s the particular company recruitment system that they are directed to. The only thing involved in the application process is to select the job and fill up a form containing all the necessary details that are required. The process is very simple and user friendly. * Selecting the Right Candidate

The HR administrator can get the full list of applicants for each job and he can schedule interviews for the right people with the respective hiring managers and other executive members. Every action will be notified to the respective candidate via email.

The latest version of OrangeHRM is available free of charge under GNU GPL open source license. The immediate download, as well as the demo version of the application can be found on
