What we have learned from over 20 visits to research-intensive universities has perfected Geiger-P's design. Geiger-P automates 90% of transactions to save at least 60% of human resources and faculty time spent on complex academic promotions administration.
Geiger-P is tailored to each university's academic promotions policies. Geiger-P slashes administrative time whilst maintaining organisational culture and increasing monitoring and reporting possibilities to inform strategic HR and continuous improvement. Geiger-P's functions (below) are a leap forward in university HR.
Geiger-P contributes towards university human resources' digitalisation and improved HR services to enhance HR's image. Email Andrew Tweedie to see how Geiger-P can be tailored to your university's promotions policies and shift HR time away from manual transactions which now become instant.
Geiger-P includes automated worklow, multi-stakeholder access (e.g. external research assessors or internal student offices) to enter evidence into committee or promotions panel packs and live monitoring. It saves at least 60% of applicants', academic managers', evidence providers', human resources management's and committee members' time.
Geiger-P mirrors your university's organisational design and committee and career structures to cover all promotions and progressions from entry-grade lecturer to professor and professorial progression. Professional services' promotions can also be managed using Geiger-P.
Functions and features:
Locally Hosted or Cloud Solution: we can instal Geiger-P on your local servers or as a cloud solution for remote access.
Comfortable browser-based interface for each stakeholder: just log in and apply for promotion (SACV, Supporting Statement and referees names), approve referees for the academics you manage, provide a reference, add evidence from library (bibiographics), student office (NSS scores), research office (REF assessments), externally review applications (viewing evidence through Geiger-P portal), collate committee packs, reord committee decisions, etc..
Integration with existing HR system: Geiger-P uses APIs to 'speak' with your existing HR Information System, whatever it is, to make the user experience smooth. For example, when a Reader logs in to apply for a professorship, their personal details are already in the form.
Documents in one, secure place: all documentation is collected in Geiger-P. No need to search through paperwork, emails or drives.
Monitoring: dashboards provide live oversight for secretariat staff and committee chairs.
Cultural fit: all workflow and terminology mirrors existing processes.
Automated reminders: deadlines entered into Geiger-P can trigger reminder emails for submission of papers and circulation.
Candidate Feedback Captured: feedback to 'rejected' applicants can be recorded to inform both the candidate and programmes for academic development.
Easy committee administration: Geiger-P sorts committee papers by any defined order to create committee packs and an agenda in a click.
Download committee packs and agendas: committee members can download the committe pack from Geiger-P or have it emailed.
Reporting: reporting can be exported in a click for HR Analytics.
Support Services: all contracts include dedicated support time, which increases slightly for a cloud-based version where we take on some standard IT administration.
Geiger-P contains modules which are common to most university promotions and progressions systems which we then connect and tailor to each university's needs. We have purposefully not designed a rigid product which forces a university to bend in the direction of the product, with all of the debates that that causes.
We take your policies and processes and automate their administration.
