Support and application development
SIRxs is an Australian database management system that was developed in the 1970's in the USA and moved to Australia in 1989. We have designed and implemented hundreds of database applications from survey analysis thru to integrated financial management and client tracking systems since 1980.

The latest of the Gryphon Sir developments has been a Time and Attendance front end for a chris21 payroll. See the GryTNA System.

Gryphon has experimented with a number of time clocks and determined that the CapeSoft (CSTime) is the most reliable and cost effective means of capturing attendance. It also happens to offer the most flexibility and interfaces seamlessly with the GryTNA application.

Gryphon Management Consultants has been supporting SIR applications since 1980. We continue to support government databases such as the DPI fisheries database (data from 1978 onwards), Heartbase and recent systems like GryTNA. In the past we have supported a CFL forest yield system, VECCI membership & job costing, industrial relations research, amongst many others.

Mediation & Investigations

Gryphon provides an independent investigation and mediation service where relationships have broken down, grievances need investigation, allegations of discrimination or bullying, unproductive conflict and performance problems occur. We currently provide these services to two large corporations and have provided a Complaints and Disputes Registrar role in a government department.

The investigation service can vary from examining an individual allegation through to an organisation wide study into culture or morale. The diagnosis services available are often useful in explaining to the parties what has happened or what is needed to resolve a dispute. In some cases the involvement of an independent third party intervening in a situation is enough to remove the heat and allow resolution.

Claims of bullying, harassment, discrimination, whistleblowing and general grievances are usually symptoms of relationship breakdowns.

Our approach is to isolate the underlying causes for disputes in the workplace by individually interviewing the parties, framing solutions before jointly mediating. Where mediation is not possible or inappropriate and/or referral to other parties refused a report on possible outcomes and recommended actions is provided.
