In past blogs, I’ve presented evidence for why PeopleSoft 9.2 and PeopleTools 8.53 can make everyday tasks easier and faster. There is one caveat; will your employees embrace the new system? Including OCM in your project plan will dramatically increase the odds they will and speed at which they do.
