Accenture and FieldCore Transform Human Resources Systems with Digital Upgrades

May 7, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019--Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and FieldCore, Inc., (“FieldCore”) a GE company, have successfully automated and streamlined disparate human resources and payroll systems following the merger of several entities into FieldCore’s industrial field services organization that operates in 63 countries and has more than 12,000 employees.

Accenture was selected to implement an online human resources, time and payroll management system for more than 3,000 FieldCore employees across 27 European countries. The highly complex project involved migrating cumbersome manual processes and more than 1,400 unique pay rules to an online system.

“Accenture has helped us empower our greatest asset — our people — with the technology they need to be effective and efficient in the field or in the office,” said Mike Adams, FieldCore’s president and CEO. “The successful partnership between the Accenture team and our IT experts have enabled us to implement major system upgrades that greatly impact our productivity — in time measured in months as opposed to several years.”

The Accenture and FieldCore team implemented the SAP® SuccessFactors® Employee Central solution and WorkForce Software to enable the technology transformation. The implementation is part of FieldCore’s company-wide, two-year digital transformation project to bring together thousands of employees from multiple organizations into one GE company focused on maintaining and upgrading power generation equipment across the globe.

“When we formed FieldCore, we reimagined how our business should operate after the merger and then built a new, modern technology system consistent with that vision,” said Easwaran Krishnamurthy, FieldCore’s chief information officer. “The functionality we now have with this globally integrated system enables us to better serve our people and our customers worldwide.”

Yusuf Tayob, a senior managing director in Accenture’s Communications, Media & Technology practice, said, “FieldCore’s innovative thinking and commitment to their digital transformation has resulted in an improved employee experience and increased cost savings and efficiencies. We look forward to the continued improvements that FieldCore will realize from this new way of working.”
