JMU currently processes over 20,000 paper-based personnel transactions each year. The manual processes require significant data entry and can often generate errors. In selecting ePAF™ (electronic Personnel Action Forms) and GT OnBoarding™, the University's targeted objectives include (1) eliminating paper from common HR processes, (2) reducing data entry, employing technology to improve efficiency, accuracy and effectiveness of HR and payroll operations, and empowering business owners with greater control and management of workflow and processes.
Kicking-off in April, Phase One of the project will focus on the implementation of the latest release of GT eForms™ 2.9 and ePAF™ for Hire, Job Change and Employment Status Change transactions. ePAF will fully-automate transactions that had previously required one or more paper forms: JMU's Personnel Action Request (PAR), Pay Action Worksheet (PAW), and Employee Information Form. Phase Two will follow with the new GT OnBoarding™.
In addition to leveraging GT solutions for PeopleSoft HCM, JMU is eager to explore opportunities for GT eForms™ with their PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and Financials systems as well.
