Laserfiche lance un package d’automatisation des processus d’entreprise pour soutenir la réouverture numérique post-pandémie des organisations

LONDRES3 août 2021/PRNewswire/ — Laserfiche – principal fournisseur SaaS de gestion intelligente de contenu et d’automatisation des processus d’entreprise – a annoncé aujourd’hui l’introduction d’un package Digital Reopening de modèles de processus préconstruits visant à soutenir les efforts des organisations pour restaurer, récupérer, réimaginer et reconstruire le travail dans un monde post-pandémique.

Laserfiche

Le nouveau package est une extension d’une collection existante de plus de 100 modèles de solutions qui permettent aux utilisateurs de Laserfiche de télécharger des diagrammes de processus, des flux de travail, des champs de modèles et des rapports, qui peuvent tous être configurés pour répondre aux exigences opérationnelles spécifiques d’une organisation pour un déploiement rapide de la solution.

Linda Ding, directrice principale du marketing stratégique chez Laserfiche, a déclaré : « Laserfiche s’est engagé à soutenir les organisations de tous les secteurs d’activité dans leur réponse rapide à la pandémie. Nous avons travaillé avec des clients innovants, des leaders de l’industrie et des partenaires technologiques pour développer des modèles de flux de travail à faible code qui peuvent être déployés rapidement, dans le but d’accroître l’accessibilité des services et la visibilité des procédures de sécurité lorsque les employés, les clients, les étudiants et les électeurs en ont le plus besoin, et de redonner du temps aux dirigeants des organisations pour qu’ils se concentrent sur le bien-être de leurs communautés et l’avenir de leur entreprise. »

Le package comprend trois catégories d’automatisation des processus que les utilisateurs peuvent utiliser dans des contextes variés : intervention d’urgence à court terme, modernisation des flux de travail à moyen terme et transformation numérique à long terme. Les premières de ces nouvelles solutions sont disponibles dès maintenant, et des versions supplémentaires sont prévues pour août et octobre 2021. La version initiale comprend les solutions suivantes :

  • Le rapport quotidien des symptômes des employés permet un dépistage plus rapide des employés et favorise la sécurité au travail. La solution permet aux employés de soumettre un rapport quotidien de symptômes en ligne avant de commencer à travailler pour la journée. Un représentant des ressources humaines est averti par courrier électronique si un employé a une température élevée, signale des symptômes ou a été en contact avec une personne diagnostiquée avec le COVID-19. Ces employés sont alors informés par un e-mail automatisé qu’ils doivent rester chez eux et se reposer ou qu’il leur est recommandé de travailler à distance.
  • L’enquête sur l’expérience du travail à domicile soutient les efforts continus des employeurs pour surveiller le bien-être des employés qui travaillent à distance. Les employeurs peuvent utiliser cette solution d’enquête pour évaluer dans quelle mesure leurs employés s’adaptent au travail à domicile, ce qui fonctionne bien et ce qui pourrait être amélioré. Les questions de l’enquête peuvent être facilement adaptées aux besoins de l’organisation.
  • Le suivi de l’inventaire et la demande d’équipement permettent aux équipes informatiques de suivre le matériel fourni aux employés distants et de gérer l’inventaire des équipements. Pour suivre le matériel initialement utilisé au bureau, les employés fournissent les informations associées à leur matériel, comme le numéro d’identification de l’appareil, via un formulaire électronique. Ce formulaire peut également être utilisé pour demander du matériel supplémentaire. Lorsqu’une demande de matériel supplémentaire est soumise, un représentant informatique est automatiquement désigné pour attribuer le matériel à l’employé.
  • Le questionnaire de retour au travail permet aux employeurs de recueillir les informations nécessaires, telles que les symptômes des employés et le calendrier de retour au travail prévu, afin d’informer et de soutenir la stratégie de réouverture de l’entreprise. Sur la base des réponses des employés, ceux-ci peuvent être affectés à une cohorte ou à une phase spécifique qui s’aligne sur les conseils des autorités sanitaires locales, correspond à votre stratégie de réouverture et permet à votre organisation de gérer la capacité des bureaux.
  • La demande de congé COVID-19  permet de se conformer à la loi Families First Coronavirus Response Act, qui prévoit que les employés bénéficient d’un congé de maladie payé ou d’un congé médical et familial étendu pour des raisons liées au COVID-19. Un employé peut soumettre une demande de congé par le biais d’un formulaire en ligne ; elle est ensuite automatiquement assignée à un représentant des ressources humaines pour examen et approbation. Un e-mail automatique informe l’employé de l’approbation ou du refus de sa demande.

En plus de permettre le déploiement rapide de solutions automatisées, le package Digital Reopening donne aux organisations les outils pour suivre les demandes et traiter les données, ce qui permet une optimisation continue. Des organisations du monde entier ont tiré parti de Laserfiche tout au long de la pandémie, en développant une infrastructure informatique et des plans de continuité des activités robustes, et en transformant l’expérience numérique des employés et des clients lors de perturbations majeures. Pour en savoir plus sur la façon dont les organisations ont utilisé Laserfiche tout au long de la pandémie et dans la planification de l’avenir, visitez la page de ressource Digital Reopening de Laserfiche.

Laserfiche launches business process automation package to support organisations’ post-pandemic digital reopening

LONDON, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Laserfiche — the leading SaaS provider of intelligent content management and business process automation — has today announced the introduction of a Digital Reopening package of prebuilt process templates aimed at supporting organisations’ efforts to restore, recover, reimagine, and rebuild work in a post-pandemic world.

Laserfiche

The new package is an expansion to an existing collection of over 100 solution templates that allow Laserfiche users to download process diagrams, workflows, template fields and reports, all of which can be configured to fit an organisation’s specific operational requirements for rapid solution deployment.

Linda Ding, senior director of strategic marketing at Laserfiche said: “Laserfiche is committed to supporting organisations across industries in their quick response to recovery from the pandemic. We worked with innovative customers, industry leaders and technology partners to develop this package’s low-code workflow templates that can be deployed quickly, with the goal of increasing accessibility of services and visibility into safety procedures when employees, customers, students and constituents need them most; and reclaiming time for organisational leaders to focus on the well-being of their communities, and the future of their enterprise.”

The package includes three categories of process automation users can utilise for a variety of contexts: short-term emergency response, medium-term workflow modernisation, and long-term digital transformation. The first of these new solutions are available now, with additional releases planned for August and October 2021. The initial release includes the following solutions:

  • Daily employee symptom report enables faster pre-screening for employees and supports continued safety at work. The solution allows employees to submit a daily symptom report online before starting work for the day. A human resources representative is notified by email if an employee has an elevated temperature, reports any symptoms or has come in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19. These employees are then notified via automated email to stay home and rest or are recommended to work remotely.
  • Work from home experience survey supports employers’ ongoing effort to monitor employee well-being while working remotely. Employers can use this survey solution to assess how well their employees are adjusting to working from home, what works well, and what could be improved. Survey questions can be easily tailored to organisational needs.
  • Inventory tracking and equipment request enables IT teams to track hardware provided to remote employees and manage equipment inventory. To track hardware originally used in-office, employees provide information associated with their hardware, like device ID number, via an electronic form. The form can also be used to request additional equipment. When a request is submitted for additional hardware, an IT representative is automatically designated to assign equipment to the employee.
  • Return to work questionnaire allows employers to collect needed information such as employee symptoms and intended return to work schedule to inform and support organisation’s reopening strategy. Based on employee answers, they can be assigned to a specific cohort or phase that aligns with guidance from local health officials, corresponds to your reopening strategy and enables your organisation to manage in-office capacity.
  • COVID-19 time-off request helps support compliance with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded medical and family leave for reasons related to COVID-19. An employee can submit a time-off request via an online form; it is then automatically assigned to a human resources representative for review and approval. An automated email notifies the employee whether the request is approved or denied.

In addition to enabling the rapid deployment of automated solutions, the Digital Reopening package gives organisations the tools to track requests and process data, allowing for continuous optimisation. Organisations around the world have leveraged Laserfiche throughout the pandemic, developing robust IT infrastructure and business continuity plans, and transforming the digital experience for employees and customers during major disruptions.

Last year we welcomed the largest global audience we have ever seen thanks to our digital offering.”

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Lantronix believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information, when presented in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s financial condition and results of operations. Management uses the aforementioned non-GAAP measures to monitor and evaluate ongoing operating results and trends to gain an understanding of our comparative operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Guidance on earnings per share growth is provided only on a non-GAAP basis due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of certain items that have been excluded from the forward-looking non-GAAP measures, and a reconciliation to the comparable GAAP guidance has not been provided because certain factors that are materially significant to Lantronix’s ability to estimate the excluded items are not accessible or estimable on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Statements that are not strictly historical statements constitute forward-looking statements and may often, but not always, be identified by the use of such words such as “expects,” “believes,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “estimates,” “potential,” “possible,” or “probable” or statements that certain actions, events or results “may,” “will,” “should,” or “could” be taken, occur or be achieved. The forward-looking statements in this press release include, among others, statements about the expected benefits of the acquisition of Transition Networks and Net2Edge (the “Transaction”), including expected synergies in the combined company, to Lantronix and its stockholders, the accretive nature of the proposed Transaction and expected future operating results of the combined company. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions and analyses made by Lantronix and its management in light of experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, and expected future developments, as well as other factors appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will conform to expectations is subject to a number of material risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to: Lantronix’s ability to integrate the acquired businesses successfully after the Transaction and achieve anticipated benefits from it; risks relating to any unforeseen liabilities of the acquired businesses; inaccuracies of reserve estimates or assumptions underlying them; revisions to reserve estimates as a result of changes in commodity prices; any loss of management or key personnel; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the emergence of new more contagious and/or vaccine-resistant strains of the virus and the impact of vaccination efforts, including the efficacy and public acceptance of vaccinations, on the combined companies’ business, employees, supply and distribution chains and the global economy; and any additional factors included in Lantronix’s Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 11, 2020, including in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part I of such report; its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on April 30, 2021, including in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of Part II of such report; and in the Company’s other public filings with the SEC. In addition, actual results may differ as a result of additional risks and uncertainties of which Lantronix management is currently unaware or does not currently view as material to the Company’s business. For these reasons, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements Lantronix makes speak only as of the date on which they are made. Lantronix undertakes no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statements except as required by law or the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC.

GECC launches campaign to enhance retention rates in basic schools

Sunyani, – The Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC), a network of civil society organisation, has launched a drive aimed at improving retention rates in basic schools amid the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19).

The campaign, to be implemented in 70 public and private schools across 35 districts in six regions, seeks to motivate school children to report to school authorities or their parents and guardians whenever they fell sick or experience abnormal feelings in their bodies.

Beneficiary regions comprise Greater Accra, Eastern, Western, Bono, Central, Volta and Ashanti Regions.

“The campaign is a sub-component of the UNESCO-funded project dubbed: “Promoting Effective Teaching and Learning at the Pre-Tertiary Level for All Children in Ghana in the COVID-19 Era,” Mr Raphael Godlove Ahenu, the Bono Regional Coordinator of the GNECC, stated.

Speaking at a short ceremony held at the Fiapre Methodist A and B basic schools in the Sunyani West Municipality, Mr Ahenu noted the COVID-19 pandemic had a greater impact on marginalised and vulnerable groups, including school children, hence the need to promote a safe school environment to protect them.

There is, therefore, a need to engage school children who are at a greater risk of dropping out of school and provide them with psycho-social support amid the COVID-19.

Mr Ahenu explained the campaign, which would involve extensive school outreaches, sought to promote a safe and secure school environment for children and teachers in schools, homes and the communities.

Community-based volunteers and monitors have already been trained, and they would ensure that basic schools in the project implementing communities complied with COVID-19 safety protocols as recommended by the World Health Organization and the Ghana Health Service.

This would greatly guarantee the safety of school children and teachers, he said, adding the monitors would also ensure there were improved hygienic practices in schools.

These include the provision of a regular supply of water, availability of detergents, Veronica Buckets, hand sanitisers, and tissue papers, among other safety materials.

He said beneficiary schools in the region were the Fiapre Methodist Basic Schools ‘A’ and ‘B’ and Golden Intellectuals School in Sunyani West Municipality, Wamfie Anglican Junior High School and Hope Preparatory and Junior High School in the Dormaa East District, and Biadan St. John’s Junior High School and Berekum R/C Mixed Primary School in the Berekum Municipality.

Others included the Ebenezer Presby Preparatory and JSS as well as the Boahen Korkor Presby JSS ‘A’ in the Sunyani Municipality.

Mr Ahenu underlined the need for parents and teachers to monitor and ensure that school children always wear nose masks and washed their hands regularly with soap under running water to protect them from contracting the COVID-19.

“There is still misinformation about the disease and the vaccines and to help curb the negative effects of misinformation and rumours about vaccines, the Ghana Health Service must partner with stakeholders to intensify public education,” he said, adding the GNECC had so far sensitized more than 2,500 school children and teachers on the pandemic.

Mr Martin Djan, a community-based volunteer, commended the government for providing basic schools with alcohol-based hand sanitisers, soaps, tissue papers and nose masks and expressed the hope that school authorities would ensure students and teachers adhere strictly to the health and safety protocols to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
