New Management System Training Begins for Some This Month
October 5, 2011 – Training for the new Georgetown Management System (GMS) will begin Oct. 11 for core administrative and financial management users of the new system.
GMS, set to launch Jan. 3, will replace the current Genesys, PeopleSoft and Employee Access+ systems.
The new system will change the way Georgetown employees conduct business through the offices of human resources, benefits and payroll and will be accessible online from any location.
Choosing at Home
“Most of enrollment will be available online now, and people can choose their plans at home,” said Rachel Bridges, communications director for faculty and staff benefits.
The training follows demonstrations of the new system, which began in August and ran through mid-September.
“These have been demonstrations for people who have a critical-user role within GMS –people who perform administrative tasks such as hiring, payroll, timekeeping and managing finances,” Bridges said.
The broader faculty and staff population will have the opportunity to see how GMS works a little later this year.
Many changes come with the new system, but Charles DeSantis, associate vice president of benefits, said users should not worry about the training involved.
“If you can order a product online, you are familiar with the functionality of how GMS will work,” he said.
