CUBES Software - case story - Clipper

  1. 1. CUBES Software Danmark A/S Skovlytoften 14 DK-2840 Holte +45 5059 8960 info@cubes-software.com www.cubes-software.com A first step towards global human relations and consolidation With the implementation of CUBES’ HR system, Clipper are in control of all master data. It has afforded a focus on analysis, rather than data processing, on accurate reporting, visualisation of the organisational structure, and an overview of the organisation, both locally and globally. Costly, poorly interfaced, and far too many resources poured into collection and processing of data. That was some of the challenges faced by Clipper when they in 2012 were to update their previous HR system. The solution, however, was a simple one. CUBES Software met the demands of Clipper. ”We had an extremely expensive IT system before. Each time a new version was available, we had to pay huge sums related to developing the system at first, and then to adapt the design. When we heard about CUBES Software, we were taken by the mindset of Software-as-a-Service. It was also much cheaper to maintain, because only the user interface needed changes,” says Lars Holm, HR Business Manager at Clipper. He points out that the migration from the previous HR system to CUBES Software not only went smoothly, but made it possible to implement an array of improvements. Accurate reporting CUBES Software has made it possible for Clipper to make do with fewer systems, which again has minimised the risk of errors. Now, Clipper updates all the information from a single place. ”We are now able to concentrate more on data analysis, rather than spending resources processing them. At the same time, we are confident that we have all the data, and that the reporting is accurate, since the system automatically send an email alert, should any data be missing. It would have been impossible to know with the old system,” says Lars Holm. The challenge The previous HR system was costly, poorly interfaced, and far too many resources were poured into collection and processing of data. The process The migration from the previous HR system to CUBES Software not only went smoothly, but made it possible to implement an array of improvements. Among other things, it is possible for Clipper to make do with fewer systems. The result CUBES Software is the first step towards global human relations and consolidation of all masterdata. This has caused a completely different global overview of Clipper and strengthened the organisation. CASE Clipper
  2. 2. CUBES Software Danmark A/S Skovlytoften 14 DK-2840 Holte +45 5059 8960 info@cubes-software.com www.cubes-software.com With the implementation of CUBES’ absence module, Clipper has also gained greater insight into which employees are absent. The system is updated daily, with information on who is on holiday, who is on parental leave, or are traveling. The system has been very well received by both leaders and employees; The previous system was mostly used just once a year to update their employee evaluation, but now the barrier of an unintuitive user interface is gone. “The leaders and employees certainly have a positive experience since the system is very easy to use, and they are now able to retrieve a variety of information,” says Lars Holm. For example, it is always possible to view how many holidays are left, or to find house data on colleagues or leaders in other departments or countries. To the leaders, among other things, this mean they no longer have to go through the HR department to find out how much their employees earn, employment dates, or the trending of wages the preceding year. CUBES Software makes it possible to visualise the labour costs of an individual department to the leader of it. This is all available with a few clicks. Visualisation of the organisation Clipper gives CUBES particularly high praise for making the organisational structure visual. It is now possible to view the overall objectives of Clipper, the various goals of the individual business areas, as well as the goals of the individual employee, all in a single organisational structure. "It is an incredibly powerful tool. Like magic, the individual employee now understands his or her role in the company, and what is needed for the company to meet its overall goals,” says Lars Holm. Global overview CUBES Software is the first step towards global human relations and consolidation of the masterdata of Clipper. As such, it has become easier to gain an overview of the company as a whole, and the direct hierarchy of Clipper has become more visible. ”Without a doubt, CUBES Software has afforded us a completely different global overview of Clipper. It has provided a better understanding of who solves which tasks for whom across the borders. It has strengthened the organisation, in that the local managers know which part they play, and the leaders in Copenhagen have much better oversight of which resources they can draw on globally,” says Lars Holm. He adds that Clipper are considering also integrating the HR system with a new recruitment system. CUBES Software aligns HR with overall strategy, thereby allowing the organisation to do strategic planning onward and forward, based on systematic documentation. CUBES Software is a robust talent management system, ensuring strategic HR with workforce planning and project and performance management. The strength of CUBES Software is the ability to handle and collate all critical master data in the organisation and visualise the global organisational structure, affording a total overview in an easy and flexible manner. About Clipper Clipper is one of the largest global bulk carrier owners and operators, with a fleet of modern vessels ranging from handysize through panamax. Clipper is commercially headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, with approximately 230 employees working in 9 countries on 4 continents around the world. CUBES Software has strengthened the organisation, in that the local managers know which part they play, and the leaders in Copenhagen have much better oversight of which resources they can draw on globally.” Lars Holm, HR Business Manager, Clipper
