City of Rotterdam selects Oracle HCM Cloud to help reduce costs, automate HR processes and improve HR activities

24 Oct 2013 Redwood Shores - The City of Rotterdam has selected Oracle Global Human Resources (HR) Cloud, part of Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud, as a basis for improving its HR processes. The City of Rotterdam previously deployed Oracle Talent Management Cloud to support management development, matching and outplacement processes. Oracle HCM Cloud will play a pivotal role in supporting the city's goals of automating HR processes to lower cost and boost efficiency, which is necessary due to national policies to broaden the tasks of Dutch municipalities, while tightening the budgets. The new solution will positively impact more than 10,000 employees who will benefit from its various self-service capabilities.

In order to improve HR processes and support a transformation, the City of Rotterdam has selected Oracle Global HR Cloud, part of Oracle HCM Cloud. Oracle Global HR Cloud enables organizations to modernize their HR practice. Oracle HCM Cloud provides built-in analytics and dashboards to help improve insight and improve productivity.

The City of Rotterdam expects Oracle HCM Cloud will help it reduce costs, which is crucial right now because the national government has tightened budgets for municipalities while requiring them to improve productivity. The solution offers a complete HCM suite that is designed to help the City of Rotterdam balance efficiency and service in order to meet its business objectives.

Oracle HCM Cloud will enable the City of Rotterdam to introduce more self-service capabilities to its employees and provide more opportunities for its HR staff to work at any time at any location.

A long-standing customer, the City of Rotterdam had already standardized on Oracle business software in 2005. By selecting Oracle HCM Cloud, the City of Rotterdam believes it is protecting its investment in existing software and development.

The City of Rotterdam previously chose Oracle Talent Management Cloud to support management development, and to streamline recruiting and onboarding and outplacement processes.

The City of Rotterdam will start preparations for the roll-out of Oracle HCM Cloud in November 2013 with two pilot projects. It expects to fully deploy the new solution in April 2014.

"Municipalities are increasingly dependent of advanced IT solutions which boost efficiency, reduce costs and improve employee productivity. With Oracle HCM Cloud, we expect to realize these goals, while at the same time leveraging the significant Oracle expertise in our organisation", stated Björn van Rosengarten, Manager IT at the City of Rotterdam.

"The City of Rotterdam is a long-time, valued Oracle customer. The City has chosen to expand its HR footprint with Oracle HCM Cloud, the most complete HCM solution available today to help it meet key strategic goals. Oracle HCM Cloud will help propel the City of Rotterdam via built-in intelligence that only Oracle can deliver", stated Oracle President Mark Hurd.
