Certification

Because ASL understands that all organizations do not want to provide all types of critical services internally, such as Human Resources (HR), with the requisite investment in systems, knowledge, and skills, ASL has decided to participate in outsourcing by providing its business partners with "Best-of-Breed" Human Resources Information Technology solutions and technical support services. Assistance is also provided in sales, marketing and joint development of vertical market solutions. To ensure the highest level of service and support, ASL has established a Certified Application Provider (CAP) Program for organizations functioning as Application Service Providers (ASP). Our Certified Application Providers will provide application implementation and management via the Web.

Outsourcing and ASL's CAP Program

Outsourcing is typically defined as the use of external resources in the operation or conduct of business processes that may have been previously handled internally within an organization. At present, a number of factors are driving the need to outsource. Factors such as increased global competition, eCommerce, refocusing on core business, geographic disparity, operations effectiveness and cost-effectiveness are some of the primary reasons. Outsourcing has evolved from a "quick fix" solution for organizations requiring the performance of non-critical business processes to a long-term solution for the provision of critical business processes in the most cost-effective manner. Traditionally, outsourcing would have been utilized to provide clerical and other administrative services thereby reducing costs. Today, organizations must focus on their core business and be able to respond quickly and effectively to competitive threats. This refocusing has resulted in the use of specialist outsourcing organizations to perform critical business processes that are not part of the core business of the organization. Key factors to consider when evaluating outsourcing include access to and use of specialist knowledge-

bases; the ability to use "best-in-class" products and best practices service expertise; eliminating routine activities; better use of resources, greater productivity; the ability to implement and deploy systems almost instantaneously and increased system availability by using the latest technology.

Our CAP Program makes it easy for you to choose an established, well-managed and successful business partner. Certification means that an ASP has completed the required product training and has attained a level of expertise with our proven implementation methodologies. The benefits of certification on ASL's solutions and technology include: comprehensive testing to validate and measure partners' knowledge; knowledge transfer in the areas of implemention and optimization; improved professionalism via standards of expertise; visibility and awareness of partners in the marketplace. Our business partners will ensure that you have the flexibility to use a variety of other business applications and technologies in your business. You can be assured that your business will be powered by ASL HR Software and you will receive superior customer service and support.
