I can answer all questions pertaining to configuration in Base Benefits, Benefit Administration, E-Benefits , Benefit Billing,Workforce Administration, Workforce Monitoring, Position Management and Core HR in PeopleSoft HRMS. Though I can answer questions on design and functionality evaluation for interfaces in Benefits I cannot be of much help with programming related queries. I AM NOT A TECHNICAL EXPERT AND HENCE CANNOT ANSWER QUESTIONS RELATED TO PROGRAMMING (PEOPLECODE, SQL ETC) OR DBA ACTIVITIES.

Experience in the area

I am a PeopleSoft HR Functional Consultant with expertise in Benefits, Benefit Administration, Benefit Billing and e-benefits, Workforce Administration, Workforce Monitoring, Position Management and Core HR in PeopleSoft HRMS. I have worked in versions 8.3,8.8,8.9 and 9.0. I have a masters degree in Human Resource Management and am a specialist in USA Employee Benefits legislations. From a technical stand-point I have extensive knowledge in HIPAA compliant EDI interfaces. In addition, I have configured core business setup and Workforce Administration module from end-to-end in version 8.9.
