Customer was running PeopleSoft FSCM 9.0 (GL, AP, AR, AM, EX, BI, PO, ePro, INV, eSup, SS and TR) which was going of extended support in June 2015. To stay current with functionality and to maintain product support for tax updates, patches and bundles, customer decided to move forward with an upgrade to PeopleSoft FSCM 9.2 in 2014. This would give them an opportunity to eliminate unwieldy customizations, streamline workflows and introduce more user-friendly functionality.
The primary focus of this project was a full solution cycle upgrade of PeopleSoft FSCM v9.0 to v9.2 including new/updated functionality in the FSCM area including:
The ERPA Solution:
ERPA implemented a one-step upgrade process from PeopleSoft FSCM version 9.0 to version 9.2, using Oracle recommended upgrade tools. ERPA reviewed all aspects of customer’s operational systems, legacy customization, business processes, and focused on new/improved elements available in version 9.2. Features/functions operational in 9.0. Customer production were upgraded to their corresponding components in version 9.2. Our detailed documentation coupled with the continuous involvement of the client’s business and IT teams at every stage of the upgrade process enabled complete and timely knowledge transfer. ERPA team organized multiple user sessions to get customer accustomed to the new application and interface. Effective knowledge transfer allowed for a minimal post-live support period saving customer significant additional expense. Lastly, we initiated a post go live stabilization phase to closely monitor the system for the first four weeks in production.
