July 2, 2012 – InFlight, announced today that its PeopleSoft SharePoint integration product has been awarded Microsoft’s Silver Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Competency. InFlight fully integrates PeopleSoft into SharePoint providing organizations with the ability to more broadly adopt SharePoint as the primary enterprise portal for customers, employees and partners.
“We believe that legacy HR systems are the heart of the modern organization”, says James La Brash, Practice Director, Integration Services, “Unfortunately, the user experience these systems deliver often falls woefully short of today’s user who, quite frankly, expects their HR system to be as easy and intuitive to use as Facebook or Amazon. InFlight™ elevates the legacy system user experience by providing direct user access to whatever ERP functionality management desires, from directly within SharePoint. This removes the complexity users have been complaining about for years”, he adds.
After the initial set up, which can be completed in about an hour, on-going use is easy. Simply point the InFlight™ custom SharePoint Web Part to the desired page in Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise, and that functionality will be available immediately in SharePoint. Optionally, organizations can then shape and modify the PeopleSoft content so that it adopts the look and feel of the SharePoint environment in which it is being exposed. The benefits of integrating PeopleSoft into SharePoint through InFlight™ are immediately apparent:
- Customers can easily improve the HR user experience by eliminating unnecessary navigation and vastly improving the look and feel of PeopleSoft Enterprise
- PeopleSoft customers can expose business critical functionality that is otherwise buried in the application and cumbersome for users to access
- HR can provide ready access to PeopleSoft HR Self-Service quickly and easily in SharePoint while preserving each users’ designated role-based security
“This step marks an important milestone for InFlight™. An Oracle Validated Integration for PeopleSoft Enterprise since 2010, InFlight’s validation by Microsoft assures customers that the product has been tested and approved to work properly with SharePoint”, says John Bonin, Marketing Director. To achieve its Microsoft Silver ISV Competency InFlight was submitted to and passed, uneventfully, Microsoft’s software testing process. In addition, several customers verified the InFlight product’s ability to perform as promised and in nearly all cases, in excess of their expectations.
