Congratulations to the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) in Queensland, Australia, on their recent go-live of GT eTime™.

"The feedback from our Pilot groups using eTime has been extremely positive," commented Allie Morgan, HRMS Project Manager at USC. "We have been thrilled with comments like 'Easy to use', 'Intuitive', 'I don't even need training as it just makes sense!'"

Built as a PeopleSoft bolt-on with GT eForms™, USC's eTime provides a flexible, configurable online timesheet solution to serve many of USC's employees. It's designed to accommodate both punched time and elapsed time, depending on the employee's role and reporting requirements. If a user's time and activities were substantially similar to the prior reporting period, the timesheets allow the user to quickly and easily copy an entire timesheet or individual rows and then edit detail as necessary. Users and managers can also enter account or project codes to properly map time. Once approved, the timesheet eForms apply any final calculations then automatically feed PeopleSoft Positive Pay.

With the volume of timesheets that managers may be expected to approve, GT also created a new product, GT Action Center™, to enable approvers to take action on multiple timesheets and other eForms from a single, summarized view. GT Action Center™ provides the necessary details in summary form, as well as the ability to click directly into the form for full detail. It has proven to be an extremely popular timesaver.

In addition to eTime, USC's team has been using the GT eForms™ framework to build their own Appointment eForm to simplify and expedite the hire process for casual and sessional staff. To prevent duplicate IDs, GT consultants mentored the USC team on the creation of a search match page.

This summer, USC will kick-off their next GT eForms™ project - the implementation of GT OnBoarding™ for new hires. It's an exciting time for USC, and Gideon Taylor is proud to be a part of their success.
