NEW YORK - Apr 23, 2013
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that the University of California has selected Infor Enwisen HR Service Delivery to help complete its HR transformation project, UCPath, to deploy a single payroll and human resources system across all ten campuses and five medical centers. The UCPath Center is the University's new HR shared services center that will employ Infor's cloud-enabled, HR-specific Portal/Knowledgebase and Case Management applications to standardize business processes for nearly 190,000 employees and move the institution toward a true human resource shared services model. Further, the solution will offer a more user-specific experience to employees and managers, drastically reducing redundancies and inefficiencies across the network while increasing employee engagement levels.
Infor Human Capital Management solutions facilitate faster day-to-day processes so staff can spend less time navigating systematical issues and more time focusing on the value of service. The Infor solution in particular was selected to help UC provide important options for employees seeking answers to critical HR, payroll and benefits questions. With Infor HR Portal/Knowledgebase, UC employees will have the ability to quickly find answers to most of their own questions via a personalized, searchable self-service experience without ever placing a call to HR. Through Infor Case Management, employee inquiries that require HR assistance can be tracked and resolved more quickly, with fewer matters requiring escalation to subject matter experts.
- The University of California selected Infor due to the human resource-centric nature of its HCM solutions, and integration with other third-party applications and overall successful reputation with higher education installations. The Infor solution helps the UCPath Center with its primary objective of providing the highest degree of service and the lowest possible cost.
- The University of California will also benefit from a faster, cloud-based implementation. The Infor application can be accessed through a web portal, which contains useful tools, information and reports, and unifies multiple functions into a single application, providing extensive flexibility and customization potential. When an employee signs in, information specific to his/her campus, job level, union or benefits plan will be displayed.
- Infor Case Management will help UC human resource service representatives manage inquiries when employees cannot find the answers to questions on their own. Complex employee and manager HR inquiries are also initiated through the online AskHR feature and then they are escalated to HR subject matter experts within the HR Shared Services Center, when necessary.
- Infor Portal/Knowledgebase is a personalized, searchable online source for information and decision support, providing UC with a multi-tier approach to HR service delivery.
- The Infor HR Shared Services Solution for UCPath is designed to be easily integrated with existing third-party products to provide a more complete snapshot of performance, enabling consolidated data access for employees and a more complete view of the network for faster business decisions.
