Is GODP into the production of software?

our technologies are scalable, flexible, cost efficient, locally supported, group enabled etc. We create THE EFFICIENT TECHNOLOGY. Some of our software technologies include:

– GOS HRM (Human Resource Manager): The GOS Human Resource Management Software is a fully automated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Software specifically developed for Human Capital Management business activities and processes. It is a one-stop-shop for all Human Resource needs, handling Recruitment and Placement, Performance Management, Time Management, Training Management, Finance and Payroll, as well as Employee Management. It is a flexible, multifunctional, fast, efficient and cost effective HRIS in the marketplace.

– GOS FR (Financial Reporter): With the recent developments in financial reporting, financial statements have become important documents required by various stakeholders. As such, professional accountants are faced with the need to prepare financial statements periodically (weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, etc.) for different purposes (management, statutory, regulatory etc). This task however, is both monotonous and time consuming; hence, the need to make financial reporting processes more efficient through technology.


GOS Financial Reporter brings all management and financial reporting tools into one-place, relieving you of repetitive and time-consuming tasks, and making financial reports just a click away.

– GOS Audit: The GOS Audit is an efficient ISA compliant audit documentation software.
Is GODP just putting up this conference for the first time?
This is the maiden HR Technology Conference in West Africa. The objective of the conference is to Chart the Course for Efficient Human Resource Management in West Africa through discourse, knowledge sharing and collaboration. The body of knowledge and information gathered at this conference would be communicated to Human Resource and IT Professionals in West Africa.

Is the event free? What is the motivation behind it?
Yes, it is totally free. Human capital is the most important resource in any business but it is seldom considered in resource planning. By charting an efficient manner to manage human capital, we are invariably enhancing efficiency and profitability. Human capital efficiency and organizational efficiency is quintessential to the economic growth of the West African region. GODP is geared towards deploying the right technology required to enhance human capital efficiency hence organizational efficiency and profitability.
