Elire recently hosted a Miles Drive from the Make-A-Wish Minnesota chapter. This unique fundraising opportunity started through our involvement in last year’s Oracle Direct Charity Golf Tournament, where Make-A-Wish Minnesota was the selected charity. Team Elire wanted to take the relationship a step further and see what else we could do for this amazing organization.
For those unfamiliar with Make-A-Wish, their mission is focused on strengthening and empowering children battling life-threatening medical conditions. For these children a wish experience can be a game-changer, encouraging them to comply with their medical treatments and providing their families with hope.
Over the course of two weeks, Team Elire and members of our trusted Friends of Elire network were able to donate their United, Delta, American, Jet Blue, and Southwest miles towards assisting with flight for wishes. Over 75% of wishes include travel, with the Make-A-Wish Minnesota chapter using over 75 million miles alone last year. We’re proud to say we raised $147, 658 miles total – with 102,500 of those miles going directly to our local Make-A-Wish Minnesota Chapter. The remainder of the miles are donated to Make-A-Wish International.
It was an honor to work with a charitable organization that has touched so many in our community. For more information on Elire’s Charitable partnerships, or to meet with our team, visit our Elire in the Community Page.
Last week, PeopleSoft Users from across the nation took over the “Windy City” of Chicago, IL for Quest International Users Groups‘ PeopleSoft RECONNECT Conference 2017. Team Elire set up camp for the week at Booth #405. The conference started with an exciting and informative lunch & learn with Senior Director of Product Strategy – PeopleSoft, Marc Weintraub, and Vice President, PeopleSoft Strategy & Product Management, Rebekah Jackson. The Senior Oracle Executives provided an overview of the roadmap for PeopleSoft, as well as engaged users to provide feedback on where they were at with the future of their PeopleSoft solution and what their current pain points entailed.
The evening entailed the PeopleSoft Super Session and Welcome Reception in the Exhibit Hall. Team Elire welcomed clients and PeopleSoft Users to Booth 405 to engage with our experts, test out our new Strategic Roadmap Quiz, and learn more about our remaining five sessions.
The team wrapped up Day One with a Chicago staple – Lou Malnati’s Deep Dish pizza!
Day Two started bright and early with Team Elire’s, “Pain in Your Bank Recon? PUM 18 has your Automated Solutions.” This session, also by Managing Consultant, Logan Wacker, focused on the expanded bank reconciliation capabilities with PeopleSoft PUM 18 that helps to maximize match rates, minimize manual use intervention, and reduce customizations. Not only was this deep dive informative, it was selected as a “Best of Reconnect Presentation” and will be presented as a complimentary Quest webinar on September 27th! Register here.
Elire Director of Sales, John Scott, and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage NA Vice President -Treasury Operations, Janet Division, facilitated the PeopleSoft Treasury SIG Meeting, connecting Treasury Users to discuss hot topics, share best practices, and network.
The afternoon was action packed as well with Elire’s remaining two presentations. “Masterminding PeopleSoft Bank Reconciliations,” presented by Elire Partner, Carlos Conde, was a Case Study on Security Finance Corporation’s automation of their bank reconciliation processes. The session focused on how SFC’s PeopleSoft reconciliation problems were solved, allowing them to smoothly and efficiently reconcile 670,000+ check items and 36,000+ on a monthly basis.
Elire’s final presentation of the conference was a case study on St. Elizabeth Healthcare’s successful PeopleSoft 9.2 Cash Management Implementation. Elire Managing Consultant, Tenzin Tsering, demonstrated the new features implemented including Bank SetId redesign, historical payment conversion, and AP integration into Financial Gateway to produce ACH payments.
Day two ended with a dinner celebrating our valued Clients and Partners at Gibson’s Bar & Steakhouse.
The last day of RECONNECT wrapped up with a PeopleSoft Question & Answer session and final Exhibition Hours. Thank you to all who stopped by the Booth and entered to win our various prizes – including a YETI Cooler and Beats Earphones!
