Heidi Hurt, CEOIn today’s rapidly changing HR management landscape, the capability to access secure data and integrate results with other systems across an organization is gaining utmost importance. Moreover, CIOs need the ability to view platforms holistically, rather than in silos, to gain a full picture of performance. Teams need to be empowered with the ability to recruit and onboard new employees quickly, utilize streamlined and robust platforms, and have access to real-time data to make business decisions.
“Oracle HCM Cloud products such as Taleo and Fusion support these requirements and more. Here at Acuity, we offer expertise in each area to present sound consulting and direction,” begins Heidi Hurt, CEO/ Founder, Acuity Cloud Solutions. “Our consultants and project managers have an average of 10 years’ experience in large-scale Taleo implementations in a wide variety of industries, enabling us to deliver integrated and aligned solutions for our client’s HR processes.”
As a full-service partner, Acuity’s team provides expert technical and functional knowledge, supporting: implementations, migrations, upgrades, remote system administration, training, end user support, and project management. In one such instance, through the use of Taleo reporting, best practice recommendations and optimizations, one of Acuity’s client’s gained benefits of: faster response times, lowered effort and cost of service, cut ticket volumes in half, and delivered an improved candidate experience. “Drawing from hundreds of successful client engagements, Acuity’s deep understanding of talent management enables us to deliver improved processes and an accelerated HCM strategy for our clients,” notes Hurt.
Acuity’s relationship as an Oracle Gold Partner enables them to meet the client at time of purchase for a seamless implementation. Oracle views Acuity as a ‘go-to’ partner for Taleo Cloud implementations and customer care due to their extensive experience and full understanding of clients’ business needs, which are aligned with processes and goals. “We also learn about upgrades, migrations and other important updates before they go to market and receive early access to training for new releases,” adds Hurt.
The company has recently partnered with a variety of Oracle Validated Integration (OVI) businesses to offer their shared clients a full portfolio of solutions to meet their talent management needs.
