Infosys Technologies Limited (NASDAQ: INFY) and Oracle today announced the successful "go-live" of an Oracle's® PeopleSoft 8.8 implementation at five Nissan North America locations spanning the US, Canada and Mexico. Nissan North America Inc., the North American subsidiary of the Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., first partnered with Infosys in January 2005 on this multi-lingual, multi-currency HR and Payroll implementation.
Specifically in this deployment, Infosys implemented PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management (HCM) 8.8. The new PeopleSoft deployment includes PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Resources, Base Benefits, Benefits Administration, ePay, eProfile, eCompensation, eBenefits, eRecruit and eDevelopment. This PeopleSoft implementation is designed to give employees greater visibility into their payroll, benefits and other related HR information.
"In order to thrive in the new 'flat world', companies must not only change their strategies and operations, but also embrace a new, globally-oriented way of doing things," said Franco Gonsalves, Vice President, Automotive and Aerospace Unit, Infosys Technologies Limited.
The new platform implemented by Infosys is designed to streamline HCM processes, enhance reporting capabilities and improve productivity and global decision making. A consolidated system of this nature makes it easier to manage inter-company operations and improves the ability to respond to changing business dynamics.
"Our PeopleSoft HCM solution enables companies to align human resources with their strategic business goals and achieve true workforce excellence," said Folia Grace, Vice President, Oracle ERP Product Marketing. "This Infosys-led implementation is a perfect example of cases where our joint clients are seeking the benefits that can be achieved with an end-to-end HCM solution and proof positive as to why Infosys is one of our most valued partners."
"Large scale HCM implementations like this are highly complex in nature, especially when they are multi-lingual, multi-currency and span different locations. However, by leveraging Infosys' proven processes and global delivery model, we are able to reduce the duration for such roll-outs and regularly meet aggressive go-live timelines," said Chandra Shekar Kakal, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Enterprise Solutions, Infosys Technologies Limited. "Companies who install large scale HCM deployments can typically expect streamlined HCM processes, improved productivity and enhanced reporting capabilities."
