User Integrations

Whether it’s a payroll or HR system, or an identity management service like Microsoft Active Directory, you likely have a system other than Helm CONNECT that manages employee information. With user integrations, when a personnel record is created or updated in one system, the integration will automatically update that record in the other. This ensures proper identity management, improves IT security, and simplifies the management of users in Helm CONNECT.

What data can be transferred?

User integrations are highly flexible, but typically bring in the following types data:

  • Personal information (e.g. name, employee number, phone numbers, etc.)
  • Current and historical positions
  • Current and historical payroll classes
  • Any custom fields you’d like tracked in Helm CONNECT

Purchase Order Integrations

Purchase order integrations transfer all requisitions that have been marked as “confirmed” in Helm CONNECT to your purchasing system to be ordered. Once ordered and received, the purchasing system can then update the requisitions in Helm CONNECT so they can be appropriately closed. With this integration, you’ll save time by eliminating inefficient manual steps in your PO process and reduce the work needed to get critical parts and supplies to your vessels.

What data can be transferred?

With purchase order integrations, we can transfer a wide variety of data, including:

  • Requisition type
  • Description
  • External number
  • Vendor
  • Estimated price
  • Quantity
  • Due date
  • Status

Take Their Word For It

Korevaar Marine Group Pty Ltd

 

“Excellent is the only word I can think of for the feedback and assistance we have been provided by everyone we have dealt with so far. On one training session we had, we raised a question which was clearly out of the ordinary. At the end of the session, the call ended but the screen sharing accidently got left on. The trainers dived exactly into the area we had talked to them about and I could see them trying to solve our problem on the spot.”

“Janie was fantastic! We are a very small company, with a unique set of challenges. Janie rolled with the punches of our days, worked her tail off, and was patient and kind to our Chief Engineer, who is not comfortable with computers at all.”

“James was patient, thorough, personable, communicated objectives well, reviewed previous training prior to starting each session, encouraged playing around in system and was good to troubleshoot or at least say ‘I’ll get back to you’…and he did. He is well versed in the program, and having Janie join on-site for hands-on training was great from a knowledge perspective of if/when the items on our ‘wish list’ were being implemented. They both really wanted us, the end user, to be enabled and excel at knowing the product, and didn’t feel like they were just going through the motions.”
