How Officient helps Kortrijk Xpo with their HR administration


Kortrijk Xpo, formerly Hallen Van Kortrijk or simply De hallen, is an event complex in Kortrijk. The complex has 6 large halls, 2 intermediate halls and a large multipurpose hall 'XXL'. In addition, the complex also possesses conference and seminar space, called Kortrijk Xpo Meeting Center, with 11 hall combinations.

From paper to digital

When Carine Simoens heard that Kortrijk Xpo was going to digitize their HR administration with Officient, she feared it would be a lot of extra work. "We were doing HR administration on paper and in Excel sheets, but we knew the system. Fortunately, everything turned out to be very easy with Officient. With the SD Worx integration, everything was filled in automatically, and now Officient saves me a lot of time." Now Carine actually wants to automate even more HR processes!

"Before Officient, we did HR the old-fashioned way. Everything was filed in folders, so you had to walk to the cabinet, grab a folder and start browsing when you needed a document."

Enthusiastic employees

Employees at Kortrijk Xpo use the Self Service app primarily to request their leave and to see which colleagues will be at the office that day. "We have quite a few employees who regularly go to trade shows. Officient makes it easy for everyone to see who will be present or absent." But Kortrijk Xpo employees don't stop there. "I also notice that people quickly update their personal information where necessary. People take responsibility for that part of their profile and keep an eye on it themselves." That way Carine has more time for her employees!
