MyESS goes mobile


myess-mobileIt has been quite sometime since I first helped to take Ardbrook’s data onto the web with a fledgling O4W based application to illustrate an idea.  Bill and the team took what I had built, developed it further and commercialised it as a product ready for release to their customer base and new clients.

With numerous extremely high profile clients now using the ESS system, the team at Ardbrook have taken the solution one step further into the mobile world.  They have now released a wonderful mobile application that runs on your Android or iOS based smartphone.

The application enables employees to gain access to their current payslip from anywhere and at any time.  Furthermore, the solution provides access for past payslips and also copies of the employee’s P60, both going back over numerous years.

This is a really nice looking solution that empowers employees, whilst at the same time reducing admin for the Human Resources departments.  It is also perfect for payroll bureaux’s and large or small businesses alike.

If you would like to know more and see the application in action, please click here for their short demo video (includes sound).

Universal Driver Heavy 4.7.2 now available


The UDH 4.7.2 is an upgrade from UDH 4.7.  It resolves a significant issue with corrupted table header counts and sizes, a potential memory leak/overrun issue when running in ‘debug output’ or logging mode, and eliminates “hanging” when shutting down the service.  This should allow sites to terminate and restart the UDH without requiring a server reboot.

This is a free upgrade to anyone who owns a license for the UDH 4.7.

Please contact Martyn to receive your upgrade.
