The Personnel Information Communal System II (PICS II), jointly designed and developed by Personnel Wing and Information Systems Wing (ISW) and launched on July 15 last year, has won the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2014: "Best Business Solution (Application) Certificate of Merit".
The system provides end-to-end services, ranging from strategic planning to the HR needs of police officers and civilian staff. It replaces the previous PICS system, integrates other satellite systems, and introduces a series of strategic functions, including competency-based succession and manpower planning, effective matching of skills with different policing requirements, e-HR self-services and enhanced security features.
The PICS II adopts a user-centric approach with analytical and reporting tools, searching capabilities and decision-support functions for the Force to meet both operational and policing needs.
The project team is delighted to have won the Hong Kong ICT Award. The PICS II system owes its success not only to the professionalism and dedication of the project team of Personnel Wing's Manpower Planning Division and ISW, but also to its partnership, co-operation and team spirit.
