Firstdoor Teams with Oracle to Deliver Human Resource Content Support
for Compliance and Policy Issues
Integration of Oracle HRMS and Firstdoor’s HR AnswerSource Provides Customers with Unparalleled Content Delivery and Management
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., May 19, 2003– Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ: ORCL), the world’s largest enterprise software company, and Firstdoor Inc., a leading supplier of human resource knowledge solutions and certified partner of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, today announced the two companies have teamed to deliver on-demand content support to human resource (HR) professionals and line managers for improved decision-making capabilities with policy and compliance issues.
Through the alliance, Firstdoor’s HR AnswerSource will be integrated with Oracle Human Resources Management System (HRMS), enabling HR professionals and managers across an organization to have instant access to critical information, analysis and decision support tools for making critical HR decisions. Accessible content includes frequently asked questions, government regulations, procedural forms, organizational templates, best practices, and HR news.
“We firmly believe in the concept of embedded intelligence, where our customers can access decision-making information as and when they need it to fulfill daily tasks,” said Joel Summers, senior vice president, Oracle HRMS product development, Oracle Corp. “By teaming with Firstdoor, we are augmenting Oracle HRMS with functionally rich, valuable content support that enables HR professionals and line managers to make well-informed decisions.”
The Firstdoor HR AnswerSource solution also allows customers to self-publish internal documentation such as procedures, policies and best practices, to create a corporate HR knowledge bank with instant and easy access.
“Oracle’s decision to partner with Firstdoor is a strong endorsement of the power of our solution,” said Gene Schutt, chief executive officer of Firstdoor. “We share the view that managers and their organizations benefit greatly from immediate guidance that helps them cope with the complicated state and federal regulatory requirements related to managing their employees.”
As part of the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle HRMS is built from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with other business operations — financials, supply chain, sales and marketing — to provide a timely, accurate analysis of an organization at any time. While other human resources management systems provide limited snapshots of the workforce, Oracle HRMS is the most complete solution that integrates with all business functions to provide a single, global view of all human capital assets and analytics in the enterprise, improving workforce intelligence, increasing operational efficiencies and productivity, as well as enhancing data integrity.
