The State of Oklahoma has selected PeopleSoft 8 pure internet applications including, Financial Management, Human Resource Management and the Government Portal to provide more than 40,000 Oklahoma state employees and citizens with real-time access to critical financial and human resource information.
Oklahoma will replace two separate Human Resource and Financial legacy systems that lack the functionality and integration needed to manage their state government operations. PeopleSoft will provide Oklahoma with an integrated enterprise solution that will move critical administrative operations online and create the first statewide general ledger. The solution is expected to improve employee productivity and significantly lower the state's administrative and maintenance costs.
PeopleSoft's industry-leading Government Portal will provide Oklahoma state personnel with instant access to key human resource information and services such as benefits, payroll and pension using a standard web browser. The portal provides predefined integration to all PeopleSoft applications, increased user productivity through intuitive navigation, and the ability to personalize content. In addition, the portal's security architecture restricts access to only the information pertinent to the user's specific role and needs, giving state employees secure access to their data anytime, anywhere.
The citizens of Oklahoma will also have real-time access to information on state services and programs. For example, opening a new business within the state requires the communication to and approval of more than sixteen agencies. This manual process, which takes several months, will be dramatically shortened by moving the new business forms online and eliminating numerous steps in the current paper-based system.
PeopleSoft Global Services along with partner Maximus, will provide consulting and implementation services. The state of Oklahoma represents the fourteenth statewide contract for PeopleSoft applications in the public sector.
