Currently, we have customers who are hosting Sodales in Saudi Arabia, Canada, United States of America, Australia, and more.
What languages does Sodales support?
Sodales comes with a translation hub tool that is embedded inside the Sodales subscription licensing; this hub provides us with the technology to translate our platform to any available global language. Further, if there are any specialized languages within a region, this translation hub also allows us to override language settings in specific circumstances. We have successfully deployed this product in over 50 languages, including, English, French, Spanish, Arabic, German, Mandarin, Japanese and more.
Are there any prerequisites to deploy Sodales for Enterprise Health, Safety and Employee Relations?
There are no prerequisites to deploy Sodales. Sodales integrates seamlessly with SAP SuccessFactors or SAP S/4HANA® and can also be implemented independently or with any other core HR system.
As a customer, am I required to implement all modules when I get started?
Put simply, no. Sodales is built as a process flow-based product, which allows our modules to be deployed independently of each other, but also has the modular ability to be deployed in conjunction with each other. As a Sodales customer, you can start with one module, and add others at any time, or you can begin with a combination of modules – whatever best suits your organizations needs and requirements. Common module combinations are incident and disability modules, or case management and discipline modules; but again, we can add modules that would best suit the needs of your business.
How is Sodales priced?
Sodales is priced based on the employee count of the customer; it is not centred on user-based pricing. Our pricing includes two components: an annual subscription fee, and a one-time setup fee.
Sodales can also be deployed as a total workforce solution to be able to accommodate contingent workforces as needed; for instance, this pricing structure can be used for customers in the construction sector, who employ a fixed number of employees, but also seek third party contractors for work.
Is the Sodales platform extensible or customizable?
Sodales utilizes a customer-centric approach that allows you to configure the platform to meet your organization’s unique requirements. With robust administration capabilities, Sodales provides an agile platform to help you accelerate your digital transformation in HR processes for health, safety and employee relations. We do not require customization, rather, to offer our customers with similar functionalities and capabilities- our Solution Development Kit (SDK) allows for an easy extension of our product, for components like forms, drop-down menus, flows, reports, outputs, APIs, and more. With this, we can cater to company specific requirements of a customer, which will accommodate their location specific needs. Additionally, these changes are preserved during the upgrade processes.
With this series, we aim to provide you with valuable resources and expert advice on our solution. You will discover that at Sodales, we are passionate about helping highly regulated industries improve safety, communication, and employee experience with an all-in-one integrated software solution.
