 Human Capital Management

PeopleSoft Human Capital Management is a global module that supports all human resourcing functions.  PeopleSoft Payroll can be integrated with the HCM database to provide the tools to run a complete and efficient human resources and payroll operation across an organisation.  PeopleSoft facilitates payroll calculation, tax computation and cheque preparation along with comprehensive statutory, management, payroll and tax reporting.  PeopleSoft HCM ensures a proven, dependable environment for processing large quantities of people-related data.

Highlights of our project work include:

Functional Design

Ernst & Young aim for maximum ROI with return to vanilla PeopleSoft 8
In order to assist E&Y to maximise ROI from their upgrade, our functional specialists worked closely with their business users to create a full functional analysis of the existing system and customisations. Congruent designed V8.3 solutions to reduce the level of customisations required and reviewed business processes and functionality in line with the new HR Service Centre environment.

Six Continents re-implement PeopleSoft 8 globally to manage rapid growth by acquisition.
As part of this complex project, our functional specialists led a disparate project team based in a number of regions through the design and build of a global system for the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific. A complication to original scope was the addition of a new implementation for Asia Pacific which involved the re-implementation of other regions.

Technical Design and Development

DERA save 45 man-weeks annually through automation of Pay Review process.

DERA, now QinetiQ and DSTL are the largest single employer of scientists in the UK, comprising some 15,000 civilian, military and contractor personnel.  The business required a HCM System that would provide a total business solution for managing the diversity of its employees and commenced implementing PeopleSoft HCM 7.5 in 1998.   On behalf of PeopleSoft Consulting, Congruent consultants played a key role in the HCM implementation providing both functional and technical expertise.  Moving from systems that were largely manually based, Congruent created an automated Pay Review process, which replaced 36,000 manual database transactions with 28 automated ones.  This automation delivered subsequent annual savings of some 45 man-weeks of effort. By removing such routine administration in Personnel, HCM staff can now concentrate on strategic issues and as a result are able to add greater value to the business, helping to ensure the long-term future of the organisation.

“Most other organisations tend to have the attitude that their way is the right way and work rigidly to this philosophy.  Congruent always work with the customer in mind and what needs to be achieved with the environment they are in.”

Tesco overcome complicated translation issues during PeopleSoft 8 implementation.
Tesco faced the complex issue of translation to Thai during their global implementation of HCM V8.3.  Tesco required a generic solution which could be used in future rollouts to other countries, which would allow them to develop in English in the UK whilst producing customisations presented in Thai which made sense when read by a Thai speaker.  The challenge facing our consultants, representing PeopleSoft Consulting, was complicated by the issue of the development team having limited direct access to the HCM and translation teams in Thailand.  The solution was to use the Translation workbench to output into Excel.  A master repository of Thai translations was used as a glossary which meant the translation could be done remotely, additionally the same techniques and spreadsheets could be used for the next country to be rolled out.  User acceptance testing was performed by our technical consultants in conjunction with the Thai users.  Our consultants also developed a number of strategy documents, control spreadsheets, and translation templates which will significantly reduce subsequent translation efforts.

Congruent utilise new integration technologies to meet concise scope requirements and guaranteed deliverables for MOD.
The MOD commenced implementation of PeopleSoft HCM V8.3 in 2002 and the initial implementation was comprised of 4 business units and 4,500 employees.  This complex implementation required an in depth understanding of various integration technologies including Component Interface, file layout and Application Engine.  Our team of technical developers, on behalf of PeopleSoft Consulting, designed and implemented a Data Migration strategy from the legacy system to PeopleSoft.  The use of these technologies represented a great technical leap forward in reducing processing time and errors by highlighting anomalies in data before processing.  Leveraging this new functionality meant a substantial reduction in data conversion cycles which led ultimately to a reduction in the cost and effort of future upgrades.

Production Support

AMP UK reduce support spend by careful management of transition between project team and permanent staff.
AMP UK wished to reduce their dependence on consultancy after their successful implementation in 2000. Congruent technical consultants worked closely with the permanent technical team throughout the implementation.  Our consultants designed a program to provide in-depth tailored training to the permanent team ensuring that operational support was not compromised. A successful phased handover took place allowing the client to manage all operational and application support internally.

“Congruent consultants have been an important element of a mixed team of consultants, contractors, and internal staff implementing PeopleSoft in AMP.  They have brought a high level of expertise and a very valuable level of commitment to a project with challenging deadlines."
