Seeing how little of the promise of ERP systems was being realized in practice, Gideon Taylor began championing the high-end productivity technologies of PeopleTools, including workflow, component interfaces and application messaging (web services). In 2003, we received a contract from Wakefern Food Corporation (NJ) to help them redesign their personnel action workflow. GT eForms was developed as a concept at Wakefern—a bolt-on PeopleTools application that would allow the company to replace paper with on-line transactions that had the ability to follow the organization’s actual flow of work. Wakefern has gone on to use GT eForms to create dozens of workflow-enabled electronic forms and self-service applications, automating actions ranging from personnel actions to benefits enrollment to performance evaluations. eForms automation has truly transformed how Wakefern works, efficiently and accurately processing over 10,000 job change actions every week.
