Perform Zone begins replacing user interface
Perform Zone’s user interface is written in Flex. Recently Adobe announced that it will stop supporting Flex by 2020. Perform Zone has taken on replacing the Flex interface with HTML5.
Perform Zone took the Flex path on in 2004. Compared to alternatives at the time, Flex offered substantially faster data display and better design and workflow options for the user. HTML5 has now caught up to Flex and is seen as the flagship replacement by industry.
The first HTML5 release, dubbed PZ 20 is planned for January next year.
This release will allow users to post adverts, screen applicants and include the Candidate and Employers CRM components.
Existing clients will be able to continue to use the current Flex version until 2020. They will also be able to log into PZ 20 version once released next year.
PZ 20 will be added to so that it incorporates not only the current functionality of the Flex version, but also significantly more integrations with 3rd party software providers and a more intuitive design.
Along with a significant increase in speed and stability, some of the modules tabled for inclusion include;
• Increased number of paid and free job boards
• Candidate mobile app
• Employer mobile app
• Ipad responsive
• Ability to customise all forms
• Video interviewing
• Instant messenger
• Automated reference checking
• Performance management
• Talent management
• Staff Compensation review management
• Workforce planning
The Candidate mobile app is also planned to be released early next year.
Perform Zone’s flex interface has many design features and functions that are highly prized by users. Many of these can’t be found in competing products. Perform Zone has been logging how users have been using the current system since 2004. This has allowed them to identify what is being used and to what degree. Perform Zone is committed to transferring the functionality that is currently being used into later versions of PZ 20.
The replacement allows Perform Zone to use the latest advances in technology to provide the best possible user experience in the recruitment software market.
Perform Zone sees this as an exciting opportunity to provide their users with access to leading edge modules that provide their users with the edge in the market place.
