Salary / Position Planning
The Questica Salary / Position Planning module supports the ability to accurately model and forecast all costs associated with positions and employees. Each Position is associated with a default GL Account and is then assigned a pay grade, step, contract, pay scales and benefits (start and end dates can be associated to each). Union affiliations, job titles, and job numbers can also be entered for each employee and each employee can be allocated to a position or multiple positions in different departments or funds. Position costs can be generated for an unlimited number of years and can be broken down on an hourly, monthly or yearly basis. Each position’s cost can be associated to one or more departments or costing centers.
The Questica Performance module allows organizations, track and manage their overall corporate objectives. This tool includes the ability to establish measures, define performance targets or objectives and track and report performance towards meeting these objectives. With data feeding from multiple sources including Questica Budget, the Questica Statistical Ledger and other external data sources, Questica Performance allows organizations to consolidate and manage all performance related information and metrics in a single solution.
