PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (UI) was rolled out back in 2014. Since then, many PeopleSoft customers who have already made the switch to Fluid. If you haven’t yet had a chance to do so and are still running Classic or Classic Plus, I have put together the benefits of adopting Fluid and also a few customer testimonies that will help you evaluate and consider making the switch to Fluid.


Intuitive and easy to use

Fluid is responsive and can adapt to various screen sizes. This helps in delivering a native application experience on any mobile device as well as a simple, intuitive desktop experience. Users are also able to experience fast and intuitive navigation across PeopleSoft applications.

Talking about Fluid deployment, here’s what one of the representatives from East Kentucky Power Cooperative had to say in a recently concluded webinar

The new Fluid features and functionality have allowed users to perform their tasks easier and faster.

The most common response we have heard from the user community is… It is just more intuitive.” – East Kentucky Power Cooperative


Caters to various user types

The PeopleSoft Fluid UI is designed for multiple user types including casual self-service users, operational power users, and executive decision-makers.

Employees and Managers love the new look and feel and really appreciate that they can now perform critical functions on phones or tablets. For example, Certification/Licenses can be uploaded through a phone or open enrollment can be completed on a phone or tablet. Management is also excited about the reporting capabilities where managers, for the very first time, will be able to do self-service reporting on direct/indirect reports.” – A Not-For-Profit, Community-Based Health System

Better than Classic or Classic Plus

To provide better navigation and enhanced user experience Fluid scores over Classic or Classic Plus. This is because of the truly responsive nature of Fluid, unlike Classic or Classic Plus.

While talking to one of our Strategy Directors, a representative from Advent Health had to say the following

When we started the project we knew it was the right thing to do. Fluid technology is definitely easier for the employees to utilize than Classic.” – Advent Health


Ease of adoption and decrease in the total cost of ownership

Many customers have already adopted the Fluid UI with great success. Fluid is the PeopleSoft user interface of the present and future.

Customers who have adopted Fluid have reported improved ease of use, reduced training and support costs, improved user efficiency, and more.

The Fluid Procurement Center is the first deployment of Fluid. We created the center to simplify work for our user community and found that it was easily accepted. Our users are now looking for more Fluid deployed applications. 

[We] think the new PeopleSoft features and functions are great in increasing the power of the system while lowering costs for adoption, lowering help desk inquiries, and for making it easier for new users to quickly understand how to interact with the system. Our PeopleSoft Fluid Procurement Center is great. Our users have sung the praises loudest. They find Fluid flexible and intuitive, elastic search is now a commonly used feature as are many other 9.2 features/functions.” – A US Credit Union
