General inquiry about training of employees

Specs: N/A
Good day, everyone! I apologize for a long
entry in advance. Our HR department decided
it needs an IT solution to help smooth out
training choice for employees via presenting
them with an easy learning menu. Software
development is going to be outsourced to
some other company. The idea is as follows -
an employee, using corporate username logs
into the system, which automatically retrieves
info about his tenure, department, name and
so forth (from a secure database) and presents
him with option choices for available trainings.
It then automatically generates an e-mail to
his manager (input by user), which has to
confirm the arrangements, so that trainings are
automatically reserved via e-learning tool our
company uses. HR department gets a
notification, so it knows how many people are
willing to attend each training session.
Functional HRs should be able to filter thru the
results, displaying relevant info on the ratio of
the people who enrolled/completed the training
using different filters (like employee's
department, seniority etc). If people skipped a
mandatory training their name should be
visible. At the end of year reports are
generated to all participating sides. The
question is - how much time (I need a very
rough estimate) system development might
take from the ground-up? It also needs to be
tested on 10% of the users prior to
deployment (2000 users all-in-all). Also do you
know of any tools which might be of help in my
situation? I understand it's hard to say based
on the info provided, I would gladly share any
additional data. Thank you very much for
constructive feedback.

Any good database program should be able to do everything you want through queries and such.

Development time, about 3 months.

Be careful who you outsource this thru. Some companies charge an arm and leg and keep extending deadlines.

Get approval rights as the project goes forward, set a reasonable deadline and get everything in writing.

Thank you! If I have any other minor questions later in the development stage, may I ask you?

I'll answer them if I can.

There are many talented people here that may be able to do even more than I.

Ask away and I'm sure people will guide you in the right direction.
