Today’s employees have higher standards for their workplace than ever before. To attract and retain top talent, your team’s experience has to measure up — or outmatch — that of the competition. And in today’s remote and hybrid work reality, the business applications your employees use internally are a huge factor in their experience and satisfaction.
One way to improve your employee experience is by bridging the gap between separate business apps. Consolidating apps into a streamlined, intuitive experience that puts the user front and center will make your teams happier and more productive. Integrating systems may sound intimidating, but with a powerful UI/UX toolkit like Skuid, it’s never been easier. Read on to learn how you can combine services like PeopleSoft and Salesforce with an easy-to-use interface and how this can benefit your employees and organization.
Meeting employees’ consumer-grade expectations in a sea of separate business apps
The business apps you build today must deliver a consumer-grade experience — employees expect it. This is possible with customer relationship management (CRM) tools like Salesforce. CRMs enable you to build a central hub for your teams to access tools and important data to do their jobs. However, on their own, CRMs can have their limitations, like integrating with applications from another service, such as Salesforce with PeopleSoft.
The average employee spends 20% of their workweek looking for internal information. Switching between different platforms to source content makes simple tasks complex and impacts productivity. A centralized self-service portal like Salesforce can help tackle that problem. But when people have to navigate away from the portal to access content and transactions in an outside application like PeopleSoft, the platform loses its power as a central hub. Instead of providing a seamless experience, the Salesforce portal landing page functions more like a link farm.
For any human resources task, employees have to leave the Salesforce portal, log in to PeopleSoft, and navigate an entirely different system. That includes requesting vacation time, filling out timesheets, processing approvals, managing benefits, and viewing paychecks. Switching applications like this adds friction to the workday — the very problem an employee portal should eliminate.
Bridging business application gaps to remove friction for employees
With Skuid, you can seamlessly integrate PeopleSoft into Salesforce with a UI built on top of your existing systems. Skuid pulls content and functionality from within PeopleSoft and allows you to create a single portal for any employee task directly in Salesforce. That means your teams will save valuable time without having to switch applications, and ultimately increase your bottom line.
All your employee-facing applications can be incorporated into a single source of information through Skuid. Your team can access information from Salesforce, PeopleSoft, plus any other system you’re already using with a single sign-on (SSO). You can completely transform the way your user experience, delivering an enhanced, consumer-grade interface that’s as easy and enjoyable to use as a smartphone app.
With dramatic improvements to the employee experience, you’ll see increases in adoption, lower support costs, and better returns on your digital investments. Giving your employees the easy, fast, and enjoyable experience they deserve can be a real competitive advantage when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent.
By making your Salesforce employee portal a true one-stop-shop for everything your people need—including PeopleSoft content and applications—you can ensure maximum satisfaction, productivity, and performance.
