PeopleSoft HCM Assessment & Implementation 

Hamilton Company is a global medical device manufacturer renowned for its groundbreaking solutions in laboratory automation, liquid handling, and analytical instruments. Hamilton Company has played a pivotal role in healthcare technology, offering an unwavering commitment to quality and medical science advancement. Today, Hamilton Company continues to empower professionals worldwide with accurate and efficient medical tools. 

Scope of the Project

Hamilton Company engaged Elire in 2022 to assess HCM system options and provide a detailed recommendation for implementing a cohesive companywide HCM application. Looking to address Hamilton Company’s pre-existing and disparate HCM environment, Elire conducted a comprehensive fit/gap and scope assessment to identify a PeopleSoft 9.2 HCM application that could successfully meet the organization’s needs. Ultimately, Elire’s fit/gap and scope assessment would serve as a PeopleSoft HR roadmap for Hamilton Company along their PeopleSoft HCM journey.  

Immediately following the fit gap assessment, the Elire team was retained to implement a full suite PeopleSoft HCM application. The implementation included Human Resources (HR), Time & Labor, Absence Management, Position Management, Benefits Administration, Payroll, and Recruitment modules with their corresponding MSS/ESS functions.  

Previously, Hamilton Company did not have Position Management capabilities, and this often led to repeated application maintenance due to management changes. In order to prevent future maintenance issues, the Elire team implemented new and proactive Position Management features. Additionally, the Elire team sought to implement new Benefits Administration capabilities that could utilize automation to enroll and maintain employee benefits. This served to be extremely valuable, as Hamilton Company no longer required manual entry for employee enrollment. 

The Challenge

As Hamilton Company was new to the PeopleSoft application suite, the project required both the Hamilton Company and Elire teams to work in unison to overcome a substantial learning curve for functional and technical resources. Hamilton Company successfully overcame this challenge by completing in-depth training, utilizing additional Elire functional resources, and staffing an Elire Change Management professional to provide comprehensive job aids across the user base. 

Additionally, Hamilton Company worked with Elire to design an implementation approach that would clean-up various data elements from the prior HCM solutions. Although meticulous and demanding, the clean-up offered a clean slate that was essential for the company’s intended PeopleSoft usage.  

Success Delivered

In October of 2023, the project successfully went live! Elire deployed its Success Delivered Implementation Methodology and  proprietary Scope Objective Tracker toolset to successfully deliver Hamilton Company’s PeopleSoft HCM Suite. 

Ultimately, Elire’s engagement at Hamilton Company provided a comprehensive HCM enterprise grade application that facilitates various HR functions, all while retaining critical historical data elements. The project went live on-time and on-budget.  

With a successful go-live PeopleSoft HCM Implementation, Hamilton Company and Elire have big plans. The two teams intend to execute a Phase 2 rollout of Talent Acquisition Management/Recruiting capabilities, and partner to support Benefits Open Enrollment. Looking to the future, Elire will continue to work with Hamilton Company as their PeopleSoft Managed Services Support Partner.
