The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), has had a busy year — upgrading from PeopleSoft HRMS 8.3 to release 9.2, and implementing ePAF™ to automate personnel actions. When the entire system is live in May 2014, users will be able to take full advantage of the new automation, executing the full range of personnel actions...fast, efficient and paperless.

UMB is continually looking for new ways to grow and improve, and GT eForms™ is proving to be a large part of that. "Gideon Taylor's eForms toolkit gives us the capability to rethink our business processes in ways that just make sense to our users, improve efficiency and, most importantly, data integrity," explained Kevin Curley, Executive Director of Financial Systems at UMB. "It makes for a compelling business case for administrators."

When UMB implemented their first GT eForms™ solution in 2011 to automate travel expense approvals and reimbursements, they knew that it was just the first step in using GT eForms™ to gain greater efficiency and productivity from their PeopleSoft system. Automating personnel actions will be another major step forward for the University, eliminating thousands of paper forms each year.

The UMB team gained experience and confidence with the GT eForms™ framework during the Expenses implementation which enabled their team to take the lead on the ePAF™ implementation. They contracted to have Gideon Taylor provide a full-time Senior Functional Consultant and a part-time Technical Lead that would provide additional guidance and mentoring through the early stages of the project.

When the system goes live, PeopleSoft HCM 9.2 and ePAF™ will be a powerful combination for the University, extending workflow-enabled self-service to the department level.
