All persons in charge of the management of assignment can use the assignment simulated function. It depends on the demand and the process of our customers.

The committee of assignment can then validate or not the proposal according to all the needs.

Processes and workflows

The initialization of the talent pool can be done through the interconnection between Napta and your ERP or HRIS.

However, we advise our clients to favour the connection between Napta and the personnel management tools: the information held in these tools is automatically retrieved by Napta, which avoids double entries and ensures the consistency of the data between the different systems.

APIs and integrations

Who has access to managers' resource needs?

Die Flexibilität unserer Plattform hat bei uns Priorität, insbesondere was die Rechte zum Lesen/Bearbeiten von Projekt-Staffing Anfragen betrifft.

Normalerweise sind es die Mitarbeiter des Projekt-Staffing-Teams , die personelle Ressourcenanfragen von Managern einsehen und bearbeiten können. Sie können Ihren Mitarbeitern jedoch auch Einblick in die Anfragen gewähren, ohne die Bearbeitungsrechte freizuschalten.

  • Department of origin
  • Location
  • Types of contract (internal, external, freelance)

Although all criteria are optional, we recommend that you make your assignment requests as specific as possible to find the most relevant collaborator for your mission. Don't forget that you can add as many criteria as you want to set up your platform according to your needs.

Processes and workflows

How does Napta interface with the rest of my information system?

Napta can connect to your API to retrieve or push data. We can also do this via flat file exchanges or let you choose to connect to our API to interact with our solution. 

APIs and integrations

Who has access to the information held in Napta?

At Napta, we want to make the platform extremely flexible, particularly with regard to the reading/editing rights of skills. Each of our customers can determine access and editing rights before launching the system, depending on the type of user. Often, our customers' employees have access to their own profile (skills, associated ratings, evaluation history) and to the profiles of other employees so that information sharing is effective. However, it is often the case that the customer only wants an employee to see the skills labels on the profile of another employee of the same grade, and not the skills ratings. In contrast, management and HR can usually see everything. Some customers also ask to limit the access of a given employee to the profiles of employees of his entity / Business Unit only, which is also possible on the platform. These are only examples of management rules, the idea being that the platform is very flexible on the configuration of these rights.

Security and RGDP

Is it possible to visualize on Napta which skills are the most in tension in the company?

To visualize the skills in tension in your company, you can use our "Load Tracking" report. This report easily highlights the skills with the highest availability rate. This will allow you to anticipate training / recruitment plans. To find out more, visit our page dedicated to skills management.


Can Napta connect to another tool, such as an HRIS or an assessment tool, to send and receive employee information?

The Napta solution has a very open API and can be integrated with various systems: a personnel register, an ERP, a CRM, an HRIS, an evaluation tool, etc... The information held in these tools is automatically retrieved by Napta, which avoids double entries and ensures data consistency between the different systems.

APIs and integrations

Is a competency map useful when only teams are created for internal projects?

We have several clients who use their skills map mainly to build teams for internal projects. These internal projects often require very diverse skills and therefore profiles from different entities. Having a competency map and therefore a competency engine makes it possible to quickly find the right profiles to build teams, and sometimes to get entities to collaborate that were not doing so previously.

Processes and workflows

How long does it take to set up a competency map?

For large companies (> 500 employees), it takes 5 to 6 weeks between the start of the project and the final validation of the competency map. For smaller companies, it can be finalized in 3-4 weeks. Then, the campaign to have employees fill in the profiles generally takes 3 weeks, regardless of the size of the company.


Can we have external collaborators fill out competency profiles on Napta?

It is quite possible to reference external collaborators (candidates, freelancers, partners...) in Napta. This allows you to easily build your resource pool. For some of our clients, external collaborators represent up to 20% of the tool's users. Moreover, for external resources, it is possible to initiate their skills and past experience profile very quickly by importing their CV into the tool. The platform is able to "read" a CV in order to immediately and automatically complete a profile.

Processes and workflows

Is Napta an HRIS?

Napta is rather a software that complements the HRIS. The Napa platform is specialized in :

- assignment and skills management
- project management
- evaluation campaigns / end of project feedback
- employee career follow-up
- employee CV export

Napta does not have certain characteristic HRIS modules (employee contract management, payroll management, etc.). However, Napta is a tool that is almost systematically integrated with the client's HRIS, in order to automatically retrieve employee data and to automatically manage the entry/exit of employees within the company. This avoids double entry between the HRIS and Napta.


Does Napta include a "training catalog" type of training repository to make the link with the needs for skill upgrading?

Indeed, many of our customers also use Napta as a training catalog. We have a "Project Management" module, which allows you to create this catalog. Do not hesitate to contact our team if you want a demonstration of this module as well.


Is it possible for employees to suggest new skills to be added to the repository on Napta?

On Napta, you have the possibility to let users propose new skills that are not part of your repository. To do this, when declaring their skills from their profiles, employees can write a missing skill in the "Add a skill" box. We generally advise our clients to leave this option open for two months after the platform has been launched in order to perfect the repository thanks to user feedback. After this period, spontaneous suggestions and the addition of new competencies to the repository are regularly surveyed throughout the year.


How do I update a grade on a skill?

To update your level on a skill, there are two possibilities.

- You can change your self-assessment on a skill at any time from your profile. From the "skills" tab, click on the skill in question. In the drop-down menu, click on "rate this skill". You will then be able to change the grade you have given yourself.

- Your expertise levels are also automatically updated on the platform at different times:
▻ After a feedback from your manager
▻ After an end-of-assignment evaluation
▻ After an annual evaluation

In these three cases, you do not have to do anything on your side. The update is automatically done after validation of the above elements.

How to turn a skill into an aspiration on Napta?

An employee can transform his skills into aspirations at any time, directly from his profile. From the 'skills' tab of the profile, simply click on the skill in question.

The declaration of skills, levels of expertise and professional aspirations is done from an employee's profile. From his profile, the employee can access the company's skills repository. They select the skills they possess. For each skill, he/she will then have to evaluate himself/herself thanks to a precise rating scale and declare if he/she wishes to be mobilized on this skill in the future (and thus transform it into an aspiration), if on the contrary he/she does not wish to be mobilized on this skill or if he/she is indifferent. After validation, the skill will appear on his profile and will be visible to other users of the platform.


How to import a competency framework into Napta?

After building your skills repository, accompanied by your dedicated Account Manager, our team will import your repository (and all its specificities) on the platform.


Can an employee ask to be positioned on a project directly in PickYourSkills?

It is possible to allow employees to express their interest and their desire to be positioned on a project directly in the application. To do this, the employee goes to the dashboard from which he/she can see the current and future projects. They can easily indicate their interest in these projects by 'liking' the project card:

It is up to you to choose the most relevant elements for the mission.


Can we share the project team with the clients before the missions?

Although Napta is exclusively reserved for internal use, it is still possible to use some of the information on the application to present your project team proposal to your client before the mission. To do this, simply go to the profiles of the collaborators forming the project team and upload their CVs / skills files. All the CVs and skills files, up to date, will be exported from the platform under your template.


Can we create project team simulations directly on Napta?

To create different scenarios of assignment directly in the application, you just have to set your assignment to "simulated" when answering a request of assignment.

Thus, the selected collaborator will appear in the project team and his/her forecasted availability will be updated. However, the employee in question will not receive a notification indicating that his or her assignment has been validated. Only the managers and the persons in charge assignment will have access to this information.

Napta is a precious tool for the management of assignment, especially in periods of telecommuting when the visibility on the availability of your employees is reduced. With Napta, you can know precisely the actual and forecasted availability of your teams, regardless of their location.

Processes and workflows

How to build a project team with Napta?

To build a project team in Napta, you can create a project card in the application (the project card is created automatically if Napta is connected with your CRM). From the project card, the managers express their requests for assignment, specifying the skills, availability and other criteria. These requests are automatically sent to the manager assignment . According to the criteria entered by the manager, the intelligent algorithm proposes to the manager assignment the most relevant collaborators to constitute the project team. The manager assignment can also rely on the suggestions made by the manager. After validation, an automatic notification is sent to all the people concerned. Your project team is now available on the associated project map!


Can we keep the interest of the collaborators on the past projects in Napta even after the end of these projects?

Depending on the organization of the structure, the final arbitration can be done by the manager assignment alone, during regular meetings of assignment , or during dedicated discussions between the manager assignment and the project managers. In addition, past wishes are kept in order to be able to follow which employees have had their wishes respected (or not). This history can be part of the decision equation at assignment.


Does the assignment manager have to ask the employee for validation before assigning him/her to a project?

Each Napta client applies its own methodology, but many of our clients choose to inform their employees before the final assignment . This dialogue makes it possible to explain the rationale behind the choice of assignment, to promote transparency and to avoid assignment , which crystallizes the frustration of employees.

Processes and workflows

Can we connect Napta with a CRM?

APIs and integrations

Can we modify a assignment during a project in Napta?

Napta allows you to manage changes that may occur during the course of a project (delays, new resource requests, etc.) and to associate a whole workflow of validation and automatic notifications. Thanks to the tool, you can easily reassign your teams and update the schedule of each one. Once the modifications are made, the new availability periods of the employees are made visible and it is possible to assign the employees to new projects. To learn more, visit our page dedicated to assignment on Napta.

Processes and workflows

How are the availability of employees managed in Napta?

Just like the skills, the availability of employees is managed directly in the tool. For each assignment employee on a project, a start/end date assignment and a assignment rate are associated. All these elements, added together and completed with external data (vacations, for example), make it possible to calculate the forecasted assignment rate for each employee / for the entity as a whole. Here, the connection with third-party tools (HRIS, ERP, CRM) is invaluable and makes it possible to avoid numerous double entries.
