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
Highlights of our project work include:
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.

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.
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
Congruent utilise new integration technologies to meet
concise scope requirements and guaranteed deliverables for
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.
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.
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."
