Pittsburg State University has begun the process of improving its online Gorilla User System (GUS classic), the system that contains records on everything from payroll and benefits to transcripts and financial assistance information.
After an extensive and lengthy search process, the university has purchased Oracle Cloud Solutions to replace the financial and human resource portion of its current 30-year-old GUS system. The new system will be PSU branded and be referred to as GUS Cloud.
Implementation of GUS Cloud will occur in stages. The Oracle Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) will replace the university’s finance system, which is targeted for systems ready July of 2016, and go live October of 2016. The Oracle Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM) system will replace the core human resource, time and leave and payroll system, which is targeted for January of 2017. The third phase will replace two systems. Taleo/Talent will replace PSU’s electronic appointment process, and Hyperion/Planning & Budget Cloud Solution (PBCS) will replace the university’s budget system. The third phase is tentatively scheduled to go live starting in the spring 2017.
