CITY OF SEATTLE

With over 11,000 employees and over 30 departments designed to service the citizens of Seattle, the city’s financial systems had become fragmented and inconsistent. They needed a new, streamlined system to support growth.

STREAMLINING SOLUTIONS FOR THE CITY OF SEATTLE

The City of Seattle required PeopleSoft 9.2 training for multiple modules in the Financials suite to begin a complex city-wide project. In order for the city’s project team members to make informed design decisions, they first needed to become proficient in new functionality available in their PeopleSoft modules.
