Implementation of a micro-frontend framework for HR Blizz

Mercans’ micro-frontend approach for HR Blizz consists of structuring the product’s features and functionality as micro-services. Andre Voolaid, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Mercans, explains that “the software has been restructured to allow modifications on each capability independently for quicker maintenance and more frequent updates by Mercans’ development teams.” For the end-user, it means that HR Blizz is simpler and easier to understand and use.

“Technically, our micro-frontend architecture allows quicker development, simplified testing, and efficient deployment, making the software significantly more scalable,” added Andre Voolaid. “The bottom line is that while HR Blizz is facilitating immensely more complex calculations, as well as sophisticated workflows and functionality, this latest update makes our product, as a whole, less monolithic and eases the life of both the users and developers.”

Marko Taylor, the CEO of Mercans, added that “the idea behind the implementation of a micro-frontend framework for HR Blizz is to help us provide faster deployment of process-driven functionality with user-friendly workflows. This new architecture breaks up large-scale payroll and human resources systems into much smaller and agile components to simplify tasks, improve user experience and transform business processes management. Also, it allows cross-functional teams at Mercans to work autonomously, focusing on delivering end-to-end solutions.”

The revamped architecture breaks down silos for better communication between backend and frontend developers, decreasing bottlenecks. Ultimately, as a process-driven tool, “HR Blizz allows assigning different roles and permissions to the stakeholders involved in the payroll and HRM workflows, allowing them to access only relevant information to their specific process. As a result, the user experience is more streamlined,” added Marko Taylor.

The HR Blizz update includes enhanced usability and performance.

Mercans’ developers have introduced Redis cache in HR Blizz software for improved usability, a server-assisted client-side caching. Exploiting the available memory on the product servers allows storing a subset of the database directly in the software and accessing information faster. “This approach greatly reduces the latency as the databases receive fewer queries, allowing to serve the same dataset with a smaller number of nodes,” said Andre Voolaid. Mercans developers also integrated a RabbitMQ plugin in HR Blizz. With a new message-queueing functionality – also called message broker or queue manager – the HR Blizz messaging system allows servers to respond to queries significantly faster, minimizing resource-heavy processes that delay response times. “The message queueing functionality is great when you need to distribute a message to multiple clients or balance workload between team members,” explained the CTO.

Since its inception, HR Blizz has included built-in features for local compliance in many countries, in multiple languages, and with multi-currency support. New countries, languages, and improved multi-currency support are included in the March 2021 update. Mercans has always provided 24/7 global availability for comprehensive HR Blizz technical and commercial support, and Mercans offers several multilingual support options to match international customers’ support expectations.

Organizational charting functionality, introduced on HR Blizz, allows a more accessible and more intuitive workflow configuration. Also, HR Blizz users can benefit from an improved custom master data reporting functionality (PAC reporting). They can activate push notifications for payroll processing workflows, creating, assigning, and monitoring their team members’ tasks while sending scheduled reminders. From the end-user perspective, all these improvements lead to a significant improvement in the performance and experience.

“We are excited to bring this game-changing update of our flagship HR Blizz global payroll and HR SaaS suite. It enables our customers to leverage a seamless single global integration approach, including pre-built interfaces with all the major HRIS platforms, and roll out a single global payroll and localized HR platform across 160 countries faster than ever. Mercans is the pioneer in utilizing the latest artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology, taking the global payroll industry into the new era of fully automated and touchless payroll processing capabilities,” concluded Mercans’ CEO Marko Taylor.
