An Post: Staff Remuneration and Administration Management System (STREAMS)
Staff Remuneration and Administration Management System (STREAMS)
Bespoke, mission-critical application developed by Fujitsu
A decade ago, An Post implemented a new nationwide time and attendance system to calculate and record staff salary and wages functions. The Staff Remuneration and Administration Management System (STREAMS) is a bespoke, mission-critical application developed by Fujitsu as a reliable, scalable client server system using Microsoft technologies.
The STREAMS front-end system gathers information and feeds the data to the company's HR, payroll and financial departments. It primarily creates more efficient processes for An Post to capture data for the weekly payroll run whilst simultaneously minimising the number of payroll queries by employees. Following deployment, STREAMS improved cost centre reporting, significantly lowered the time to record pay details and enhanced the processing of casual staff pay.
During this period, Fujitsu provided quality support and maintenance services and application enhancements to increase functionality, ensuring the long-term reliability of STREAMS. For instance, as employee numbers steadily increased to exceed original expectations, Fujitsu boosted system performance by upgrading the infrastructure and optimising the software.
