Thomas Jefferson University: PeopleSoft Implementation and Upgrade (Oracle)
Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) is an academic health center based in Philadelphia, PA that consists of Jefferson Medical College, the College of Graduate Studies, the College of Health Professions and associated University services. The university needed to upgrade its PeopleSoft HRMS solution.

The university then asked Starpoint to bid on the implementation, training, and rollout. Starpoint had previously successfully implemented TJU’s PeopleSoft financials upgrade, so the university knew how reliable Starpoint and its team were.
