I had the opportunity to meet with Rachael Ruiz, Manager of the DeakinPeople Program at Deakin University. Rachael and I spoke about Deakin’s journey to maximize their investment in PeopleSoft by continuing to enhance the product to support the HR function at Deakin. Rachael was responsible for the transition from their previous HR System to PeopleSoft in 2015, as well as leading Deakin’s “get me current” and Fluid User Interface implementation in 2016.
Deakin is a young, contemporary university with a reputation for being innovative, nimble and friendly. They aspire every day to combine excellent research and outstanding teaching with a strong focus on the communities they serve.
Deakin is new to PeopleSoft and have implemented the Human Capital Management 9.2 module as of image 17 and has selectively adopted Fluid Candidate Gateway in Image 18.
WHAT WERE YOUR DRIVERS FOR MOVING TO PEOPLESOFT?
Deakin was looking for an enterprise-wide platform that offered an integrated solution to a range of our HR needs.
ONE OF THE FEATURES YOU MENTIONED SELECTIVELY ADOPTING WAS FLUID CANDIDATE GATEWAY. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE DRIVERS WERE FOR TAKING IT ON?
We wanted our prospective employees’ first interaction with Deakin to be a reflection of what Deakin is – contemporary, mobile, friendly and innovative.
YOU WORKED WITH PRESENCE OF IT. WHAT WAS THEIR ROLE IN THIS PROCESS?
Presence of IT was our implementation partner and was engaged to provide functional and technical expertise during our upgrade to PeopleTools 8.55 and Image 17, as well as implementation of the Fluid User Interface. They assisted with our Selective Adoption, deployment, testing and Deakin customizations of the Fluid Candidate Gateway.
