The UK’s first Dynamics 365 for Talent deployment is live!

Insight Analytic Solutions Limited this week became the first site in the UK to go-live with the new Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent. Further to our previous blog about the project, we are delighted to see the full application now supporting the HR team at Insight.

In February 2017 Castrol,  a world leading lubricant brand, announced the creation of a joint venture with Romax Technology’s InSight business, a pioneer in predictive maintenance solutions. The creation of the new joint venture company, Insight Analytic Solutions, led to some unique challenges for the business and project team.  As the new venture matured, the need to fully support the growing HR function became vital.  Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent was a great fit for the business, building on the existing deployment of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations which went live earlier in the year.

Aside from the specifics of the HR functionality, the Insight team provided Seaton Partners with key success factors for the project:

  • Easily integrate into the existing IT landscape
  • Support four different regions: UK, USA, South Korea and India
  • Intuitive interface
  • Cost-effective
  • Facilitates the adoption of best practices
  • Delivers an exceptional talent experience

The project has taken just two months of elapsed time since the kick-off, and is now supporting the core HR administrators and the full global employee team via the Employee Self Service Portal.

Insights’ Head of Human Resources, Neil Hopkins commented,Seaton Partners have been highly organised and responsive in deploying our new HR system.  They have worked closely with us to understand our needs and issues and configured Microsoft’s new Dynamics 365 for Talent system to meet our expectations”.

Insight Analytic Solutions now has a very cost-effective Talent solution which will fulfil their needs for the coming years as the business develops and grows.
