Panoptikon is accessible from any type of browser through the http protocol, without the use of any kind of third-party applications. The architectural choices remove any type of compatibility problem with client tools.


The application is multidevice, or rather it can be run on different types of operating system and screens: smart phone, PC and multimedia Totem. The visualization of the whole system is optimized for screens with a horizontal resolution of 1024 pixels equipped with an autonomous pointing system (mouse or similar. The functions, which are mostly used as front-end  in the transactional flows managed by the application, are distributed with variants for integrated I/O systems (touch screen), specifically adapted for smart phones and multimedia totems.

Furthermore, the functions applied on smart phones are integrated with the functions of the SMS gateway to forward the notifications. In this way,  a transactional environment is created where the user receives requests for interaction via SMS . From these requests the user can enter the platform through a pre-authorized token to selectively operate only on the web interface optimized for the smart phone screen.

These functions are particularly used for activities such as 360 ° feedback, assessments and management of action plans for the development of individual skills.
The functions distributed on multimedia totems are, instead, integrated with hardware authentication tools (electronic badge) so that the application can be used to build self-service kiosks ideal to be used in production environments, such as, for example , assembly lines in manufacturing factories.

These functions are particularly used for activities such as the insertion and consultation of improvement proposals, safety and environmental reports, consultation of the aids for on-the-job training, certification of successful training through digital signature.


Human Machine Interface


All Panoptikon system is developed following  ISO 9241-11 guidelines that specifically defines the concept of usability and therefore the satisfaction of users when they use a platform that meet their needs in a simple and clear way.


In particular, Panoptikon system development refers to the following issues of the standard procedure:

- Part 10. Dialogue principles: compliance with user expectations, self-descriptiveness, controllability and fault tolerance for the user.

- Part 12. Presentation of information: the representation of complex information, the use of the windows.

- Part 13. User guidance: prompts, feedback, status, online help, and error handling.

- Part 14. Menu dialogues: structure and presentation of the menus, navigation, select operations and execution.




Panoptikon is a completely configurable system. Each instance of the system can have different general features and each user of the system can operate only with the expected functions for his profile. In particular, the customization elements are as follows:


1. Each user can access only to the management profiles for which he has been enabled. These are organized in widgets. After the authentication, the user can access the homepage where he can observe the widget and the related KAI (Key Activity Indicators) resulting from the activity that he/she has performed until then on that profile.




2. Each user can customize his homepage by creating shortcuts (direct links) through the "Favorites" system. In each functional page of the application, with the specific button, the user can create a Favorite that is published on his homepage with the icon, the label and the colors he prefers. The use of Favorites, particularly useful for the users who have multiple active profiles allows you to create functional dashboards on the homepage and make the navigation and use of the whole system more pleasant.


3. Each installed instance of Panoptikon can provide or exclude available modules. Thanks to this, Panoptikon can be used as an HR, Finance or Operations tool. The underlying software is always the same, but the functions are completely different based on the issued licenses.


4. The contents of the homepage and login page can be updated independently by the system administrator of the instance through the configuration profiles. In this way, the extra widgets on the homepage can be activated and deactivated and, above all, the contents can be published and removed in a BBS (Bulletin Board System) logic.


5. The graphic interface of the application can be customized for each installation. In this way, the portals designed through Panoptikon can be perfectly integrated within the various types of intranets used by the companies also from the communication point of view.
