PDS Recent Developments

In October 2021, PDS unveiled a variety of improvements to Vista. Vista Recruiting now offers additional controls to manage the applicant’s registration process and improve the recruiter’s analysis of recruitment activity. Enhancements to Vista Onboarding offer simplified personalization and better monitoring of the onboarding process. New hires can easily complete the onboarding steps from their desktop or mobile device, and progress with learning more about their new job. Vista Benefits is significantly enhanced including a new streamlined Benefits Enrollment experience. Vista Payroll has improvements to the auditing and payroll processes.

In October 2020, PDS unveiled the latest version of its flagship HCM platform, Vista 7.1. This new version offers significant new features and product enhancements throughout the software suite. These updates provide Vista customers with more features at their users’ fingertips, enhanced opportunities for employee engagement and further streamlining of processes resulting in increased consistency and data integrity.

In October 2019 PDS expanded their HCM depth as well as their cloud presence with the release of Vista 7.0.8. Many of the features in Vista 7.0.8 are the direct result of customer feedback gathered in User Group Brainstorming sessions.

The improved Employee Directory is interactive, so self-service employees can broaden their employee experience. Vista Recruiting was enhanced with items such as quick registration that can force the applicant to make a job selection. Vista now provides the ability to send system-generated event messages and individual text messages to employees and applicants using our new Twilio SMS integration.
