Rapid Personnel Manager version 6.0 has been released

We are happy to announce the release of Rapid Personnel Manager version 6.0! This is a major release which adds new functionality in addition to the usual improvements. Version 6.0 is nothing short of a huge update, and has been in the works for several months.

A hearty thanks to our key customers

Many of these updates are purely based on requests from our customers, and several of them have even been sponsored by key customers in a manner that allows other customers to benefit as well. The community around Molnix RPM is really growing into an active and involved pool of HR and roster management specialists who pioneer the way in which roster management is done.

We want to make this practice a tradition and contribute to the open atmosphere. Therefore, when you choose to sponsor the development of a feature that benefits the community as a whole, we at Molnix promise to match your sponsorship of that work. Additionally, we are also checking for your interest in a routine where your contributions can be publicly acknowledged. Stay tuned to our blog for more details!
