Human Capital Management Enterprise System by Quidgest

Human Resources of Government of Jamaica already using Quidgest software

Internally communicated on July 21st to all Jamaican government officials, the Human Resource Management solution (HCMES – Human Capital Management Enterprise System) has already entered into pre-production stage. This is a project within the scope of the country’s Public Sector Efficiency Program, result from a strategic decision of 2013, and a procurement process closed in December 2015. It is financed by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), led By the Ministry of Finance and Public Service, and developed by Quidgest.

In this first phase, the system manages 14 pilot agencies, with a total of approximately 25,000 people who have already received training in the use of the tool. It will be extended, in the coming years, to the remaining government agencies, with a total of 125,000 officials. Parallel to this implementation, there is also a project to scan the Human Resources files, as part of the existing data migration strategy.

HCMES Software is being developed with Genio, Quidgest multi-technology engineering platform. This complex software has been based essentially on MVC .NET technology and Microsoft SQL Server database, and will allow widespread use in web environment and mobile devices. It is being modeled starting from Quidgest Human Resources base solution, which e.g. in payroll, has a monthly logic. However, “thanks to the agility and modeling process of Genio, changes to a weekly and bi-weekly logic, as well as language, currency and local legislation are being much easier and faster to implement than other approaches as traditional “package” or custom-made manual development”, emphasizes Hugo Miguel Ribeiro, HCMES project manager.

With the collaboration of the local partner, UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants, this innovative solution will also drive a technology transfer process, in order to create local means for support and future developments and thus contribute to innovation and increase wealth in the region.

The Government of Jamaica believes that this public sector transformation project is crucial to keeping the country as a place of choice for work, family formation and doing business.

Jamaica Government Human Capital Management System powered by Quidgest technology

Quidgest and the Government of Jamaica signed a contract for implementing a Human Capital Management Enterprise System (HCMES) Software across all Jamaica Public Sector, a project led by the Ministry of Finance and The Public Service. This solution, jointly promoted by Quidgest and the local partner UHY Dawgen, is powered by Genio, one of the most advanced technology for Public Administration agile software development.

Quidgest and UHY Dawgen Chartered Accountants established a partnership in 2014. Since then, UHY Dawgen has been working with Quidgest to expand the projects in the Caribbean market.

By the end of 2015, the contract between the Government of Jamaica (GoJ) and Quidgest was signed. The aim of the current project is to implement an integrated system to manage the GoJ’s Human Capital. Focused on shared services with an integrated and unified vision, HCMES Software includes functionalities for both Human Resources (HR) Management and Payroll.

As well as other international projects developed by Quidgest, this project is funded by Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) under the Public Sector Efficiency Program of the country.

Quidgest’s experience in similar projects, such as SIGRHARA – the Azores Government HRIS, and Genio, the platform for rapid application development of complex information systems, were crucial for choosing its system.

“It´s with great expectation that we embrace this project. There are significant challenges such as the current processes or the local legislation, for example the salaries can be processed fortnightly, we are confident that we have everything to succeed, in particular, thanks to our HR team, our local partner, and all the enthusiastic people from the Government we have worked with”, says Hugo Miguel Ribeiro, Quidgest VP North America and Caribbean, who is also the Project Manager.

The project is divided in several phases, the initial 2 with an estimated length of 2 years, to cover all HR processes for 26,925  employees and the next 3 phases to cover the remaining 120.000 Jamaican public sector employees. The HCMES Software will then be continuously adjusted to the local continuous legislations changes and reality.
