CHICAGO, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Synch-Solutions, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced today that it has begun a rapid upgrade of the Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise Human Capital Management (HCM) at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The upgrade, from version 8.9 to version 9.1, will be completed within a 6-month period, with an additional month of post-go-live support.
Synch-Solutions' Campus Accelerator tools, timeline and methodology enable the upgrade of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, Financials and HCM within 6 months, at a highly competitive fixed-fee rate. Rapid upgrades are an extension of Synch-Solutions' Campus Accelerator, which delivers full implementation of the three suites to small and midsize higher education institutions in only 12 months. Campus Accelerator has been proven through Synch-Solutions' successful full implementation of PeopleSoft at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, completed in December 2010. Synch-Solutions can also deliver "a la carte" rapid implementations and upgrades of individual suites, as is being done at TCNJ.
"We believe partnering with the Synch-Solutions team, utilizing their strong project and portfolio management methodology, will allow us to mitigate risk, and reduce cost and downtime, as we enhance performance and increase our functionality," said Dr. Gregory Pogue, Vice President for Human Resources at The College of New Jersey. "Based upon the knowledge, skill and experience gained from previous upgrades in higher education, we feel confident in their ability to bridge the gap and facilitate a successful outcome for all phases of this project."
"We are very excited about our project at The College of New Jersey," noted John Sterling, CEO of Synch-Solutions. "It demonstrates the flexibility of Campus Accelerator to deliver to institutional needs in a way that reduces project costs while also enabling faster return on investment."
The College of New Jersey is a highly selective institution that has earned national recognition for its commitment to excellence. Founded in 1855, TCNJ is consistently acknowledged as one of the top comprehensive colleges in the nation.
