This year, the State of Hawaii’s four-decade-old mainframe payroll system is scheduled to transition to modern payroll software and processes utilizing PeopleSoft. Involving more than 70,000 payments each payroll cycle, the modernization project aims to provide employees with updated toolsets and training.
According to the Department of Accounting and General Services, the new system will enable payroll and human resources staff to process information using up-to-date technology, resulting in less manual processing. Increased efficiency will provide more time for employees to work on other priority tasks such as analytical activities. Read the full press release here.
