Bannockburn, IL – 8/2/2004 – Decision Design Corporation, a leading custom software development firm, today announced Sanofi-Aventis, the worlds third largest pharmaceutical company, has chosen to implement Decision Design’s DecisionMetrics product.
DecisionMetrics provides a one-stop browser-based portal for human resources management teams to view employee related data. The application easily and seamlessly integrates many different data sources and repositories into a comprehensive single view. Managers can look at aggregated data composites across large population samples, viewing averages and trends, or they can drill down into specific data classes all the way to the lowest layer, viewing individual employee information.
Sanofi-Aventis recently merged two large organizations representing over 15,000 employees. Prior to purchasing DecisionMetrics, Sanofi’s employee metrics data resided in disparate and disconnected data sources. The company was faced with the daunting task of manually compiling all of the employee records into needed reports that tracked overall trends by departments, locations and skill sets.
“DecisionMetrics will prove instrumental to Sanofi as they move forward with their merger,” said Monty Davis, President of Decision Design. Davis noted that implementing the new application will allow the merger team to follow staffing plans from inception through execution with little manual effort. “The software implementation will free the teams to focus on the strategy of weaving their organizations together instead of the tactics of finding the information necessary for making strategic decisions,” said Davis.
As part of the project, Decision Design will be integrating DecisionMetrics with the Employee Performance Management system that Decision Design has previously implemented for Sanofi. The performance system facilitates Sanofi’s employee review and objective setting process, capturing performance related data for its employees.
The project is slated to roll out at the end of October in conjunction with its merger restructuring activities.
