Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 Feature Pack 2 Delivers New HR Self Service User Experience

Oracle has introduced PeopleSoft HCM (Human Capital Management) 9.1 Feature Pack 2 which provides a consumer-like self-service user experience to improve the way employees and managers perform their day-to-day activities. Oracle's Feature Packs enable a quicker response to PeopleSoft customer requests, while enabling customers to choose how and when to deploy the new functionality to their users.

A new search-based, menu-free navigation capability allows users to locate and navigate to relevant information quickly and in context from any page. Using a global search capability that goes beyond simple transaction based search, PeopleSoft delivers search results have filtering and specific related actions based on defined roles and security of the user. For example, a manager can now simply type in part of an employee's first or last name and receive meaningful results from documents related to performance, compensation, learning, recruiting, career planning and more. Key HCM data is indexed to speed the search process and improve search relevancy.

A new design provides greater personalization using pagelets that make PeopleSoft HCM easier to use, with a more appealing user interface, as well as reduced click counts on key transactions. The feature pack includes a new Manager Dashboard, Talent Summary, Matrix Organization, and Pivot Grid functionality, among other new capabilities.

"Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 Feature Pack 2 delivers a new navigation paradigm for our HCM community," said Paco Aubrejuan, group vice president, Oracle's PeopleSoft. "We listened to our HCM customers and focused on delivering features like Manager Dashboard and Talent Summary to help managers be more productive at managing their resources, better utilize and reward their employees, and gain valuable insight into their organization and talent pool."
