Austin, Texas headquartered technology giant Oracle, earlier this week, announced a new platform to help companies streamline employee related processes.   

Called Oracle Journeys, the workflow tool will be a part of Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management (HCM) suite.  

“Organisations need to provide guidance throughout an employee’s entire career, from training to finding a mentor, returning to the workplace, and eventually traveling safely,” Chris Leone, senior vice president of development, Oracle Cloud HCM, said in a statement. 

New features on the platform include Journeys Launchpad, Journeys Creator and Journeys Booster. While the Journeys launchpad will work as a single destination for employees and their needs, Journeys Creator, will allow HR teams and managers to create, modify and assign journeys to employees, which can be scaled up to the whole enterprise.

HR leaders will get access to a library of pre-built “Journey” templates which are customizable, without the need for help from IT departments and coding from developers.   

A third feature, called as the Journeys Booster, will help integrate HR processes and other business functions such as finance, operations and facilities management into third party systems and applications.  The booster, Oracle said, will automate requests and services across the HR, IT and other work systems.  

As companies move to hybrid work systems, Oracle has joined a growing list of cloud service providers that have launched tools to improve employee experience.  

Customer relationship management (CRM) Salesforce rolled out its work.com launch  last year. Enterprise management company Workday also released Workday Help, Workday Journeys and Workday People, HR teams handling WFH employees.
