July 14, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut has gone live on a new implementation of PeopleSoft Financials 9.0. With the help of their implementation provider, Smart ERP Solutions, Inc., they were able to transition from a previous legacy system to the modern PeopleSoft Financials system including a host of robust add-on features. The project was completed within a short, twelve month schedule and within budget.

"The new system is providing tremendous benefits to the university and the add-ons provided by SmartERP accelerated our project and introduced important new functionality into the standard PeopleSoft application" said Ed Below, Director of Administrative Applications, at Wesleyan University. "The go-live went very smoothly. We couldn't be more pleased with the new system so far and SmartERP has been great to work with throughout the project".

Doris Wong, SmartERP CEO and former Oracle Group VP and GM for PeopleSoft Enterprise, identified "the add-on solutions we employ for our clients such as Wesleyan are providing some wonderful efficiencies. Especially for new or casual users, some of the standard PeopleSoft business processes can be rather daunting, with numerous pages and tabs to navigate with many optional fields. So clients love our Smart Docs™ to simplify transactions and tailor them to meet client needs". Indeed, regarding the streamlined processes, enhanced usability and reduced training aspects of SmartERP's add-ons Ed Below said "90% of the people on our campus that need access to the financial system, all they need is the Smart Docs, that's it!".
