By Kristen Emery-Oracle on Nov 07, 2014
The PeopleSoft HCM team is proud to announce that Update Image 9 for PeopleSoft HCM 9.2 is now available!
This Update Image is the largest and most impactful PeopleSoft Update Image posted to date. This cumulative Update Image includes all new features and fixes from previous PeopleSoft HCM Update Images as well as a plethora of new items including multiple PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface enabled HCM transactions ready for any mobile device.
Optimized across multiple platforms including smartphones, tablets and laptops/desktops, the new PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (Fluid UI) provides an intuitive and responsive user interface that provides native-application interactivity across a range of mobile operating systems and devices. With more than 50 new features and functions, Fluid UI provides employees, managers and executives with a familiar native user experience that helps maximize productivity and effectiveness while eliminating the need for training.
It is our goal to provide you with new functionality that is intuitive and simple to use, increasing your productivity while lowering your total cost of ownership. You will see those goals realized with the new HCM homepages. This new functionality provides the user with an easy to use application that is configurable so you can determine what homepages and tiles you want to see based on your organizational needs. Some characteristics and functionality of delivered fluid homepages include:
- PeopleSoft delivers two out-of-the box homepages (Employee Self Service and Manager Self Service) with the ability to create your own.
- You can navigate from one homepage to the next by simply selecting the page you want or swiping to the left (on a tablet or phone).
- Each homepage contains tiles. You have the ability to add, remove and control the placement of the tiles. You can also share tiles across multiple roles and landing pages.
- Users will be able to view key information at a glance that is dynamic and data displays on tiles. The user can click or tap on tiles to access the associated content.
HR transactions are also now much easier with the new Guided Self Service. This configurable application allows organizations to create any number of “compound” transactions by combining multiple transactions into one easy to use guided process that walks the user through step by step, capturing the exact data needed to complete the transaction.
WorkCenters and Embedded Analytics are another great example of how users can be more efficient and productive. Payroll for North America delivered the Payroll for North America WorkCenter. This is a one stop shop for the Payroll Administrator to process payroll. The WorkCenter provides the administrator with alerts and analytics to help identify errors prior to a payroll going out the door.
Update Image 9 also delivered new Analytics in other areas such as Time and Labor and Absence Management allowing you to get more insight, spot trends and issues, and have the opportunity to take action with ease.
Several other enhancements were included in Update Image 9 and we encourage you to take a look at the Update Image to see the new functionality/enhancements in PeopleSoft HCM!
