The primary purpose of Succession Wizard is to simplify the whole succession planning process and to act as a tool to identify potential succession gaps within organizations. It can also quickly identify suitable candidates for either new roles, or as replacements for leavers. It does this by using a powerful, yet user-friendly, interface making it a simple program to use and enabling managers to easily identify which key positions are exposed. A major benefit of using Successor Wizard over competitor products is that users can expect to be fully operational and producing effective succession plans within hours of implementing the solution. There is no need for expensive consultants to configure the software, or the need to purchase additional hardware as the application is designed for standard Windows desktop PC's and can be setup by virtually anybody within minutes.
Version 2.01 features unspecified improvements and bug fixes.
