NEW JERSEY, NJ, May 15, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is a leading national research university, and is the eighth oldest higher education institution in the United States. Nearly 69,000 students and 22,000 full- and part-time faculty and staff learn, work, and serve the public at Rutgers locations across New Jersey and around the world. Division of Continuing Studies (DoCS) is a sub unit of Rutgers University that is using the OrangeHRM application. Rutgers Division of Continuing studies has selected OrangeHRM to help manage their people and streamline processes. Rosa Salgado-Rodriguez, DoCS HR Director, Rutgers explains 'In the past 4 - 5 years we have grown at a very fast rate, with a geographically disperse workforce, and ever increasing numbers meant aligning goals and objectives across the division became a big challenge. We needed to find a solution quickly to ensure we were all on the same playing field, and align processes across the division. OrangeHRM was the perfect fit in our eyes' Rosa continues "The fact OrangeHRM was able to configure and customize several modules for us was a life saver.. It has reduced several of our administrative tasks and streamlined our processes. Where we saw this change quickly was with the Payroll Module ( approve time for hourly employees); Leave Module (supervisors approving employees absence requests ) and the Professional Development Request modules, (where employees could submit their requests to attend future professional development conferences/workshops) . OrangeHRM was a breeze to use from day 1. Thanks to OrangeHRM we could focus on planning and strategic priorities, and most importantly our people, instead of being weighed down by endless paperwork. '...Our experience with OrangeHRM and their team of people has been unequivocally a positive experience, their attention to detail and quick response to our needs has made our transition to their system seamless. Their knowledge in the education sector meant they understood what our challenges were, and provided intuitive and user friendly solutions. "The project at the Division of Continuing Studies showed us how OrangeHRM was able to help the end users to see their leave and future prorated vacation entitlements on-line without contacting the HR team. " Said Sujee Saparamadu Founder & CEO of OrangeHRM " These type of features have helped Rutgers DoCS HR team to focus more on strategic initiatives than working on operational tasks." Sujee Saparamadu, CEO, OrangeHRM comments 'We are really excited to be working with Rosa and her team at Rutgers DoCS, and look forward to sharing our experience within the Education sector'. Rutgers is currently in the pilot process of their fully configured Performance Management module, which they are currently piloting and due to fully launch by June 2017.

We would like to invite you to our highly successful ‘Instrumented Indentation Course’ being jointly organised by Anton Paar Ltd, Queen Mary University of London and NanoForce Ltd and being held from 10th – 12th May 2017 at Queen Mary University of London. This course has also been approved for Professional Development by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3). The course is intended for anyone interested in nano-indentation who wants to gain the experience and knowledge required to extract useful data from challenging sample materials. It is also intended for users of conventional indentation methods (Vickers, Rockwell, Knoop, etc.) who are thinking of adding instrumented indentation to their portfolio of practical test techniques. The content of the course is as equally applicable to research personnel developing specifically adapted indentation methodologies, as to industrial test engineers who need to integrate such techniques into their internal Quality Control (QC) programme. The course will include both theoretical and practical instruction from two leading experts from academia and an instrument manufacturer (Anton Paar). Understanding of the underlying principles and practical measurement issues of indentation will be presented. The two and half day schedule includes a ‘minimum’ of two and a half hours of practical hands-on training using two commercially available nano-indenters where the attendees are split into small groups and a range of experiments are designed and executed with group input encouraged. As you can appreciate places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. For further information please email info@nanoindentationcourse.com You can find full details about the event and registration here
