In order to optimize and automate the processes related to the circulation of documents in the company, the Competence Matrix has a module of alerts and documents. The module allows you to enter into the system documents that employees are required to read. In addition, the platform allows you to connect the document with a selected element on the matrix (e.g. a classification that groups skills in the context of the position), thanks to which the system will notify the assessed employees about the need to read the document by generating an alert. The flexibility of the system also allows adding employees to the group of alert recipients, so that the notification can be carried out independently. SkillBox collects information about when the employee got acquainted with the document, and the reports module will indicate the indicators of alert implementation. Using the mailing module, the system will warn the people managing alerts and documents that the employee has not yet confirmed that he or she has read the alert or document or about the upcoming review date.
