Since June of 2014, EpiConcept’s NGO team undertook five missions (Nepal, Burkina Faso, Haiti, Egypt, Bangladesh) to support the field teams of the NGO Terre des Hommes (TDH) Switzerland. These missions were for implementing and training the human resource teams on Homère in order for them to be able to use the application with as much autonomy as possible. The country field teams from India, Jordan and Lebanon were also included in these missions. The coordination between EpiConcept and TDH allowed the eight countries to implement Homère in a record 6 months.
The use of Homère replaces disparate information systems and methods and allows above all, a standardised process for payroll/HR. As for the application itself, the experience will allow the team to enrich it with new data import functions (employees, work contracts) allowing a much more rapid setup. For the EpiConcept NGO team, they are now able to propose a standard setup method for a field payroll management system at the national level.
