Oracle HCM Cloud Co-Existence with Legacy HR Systems | Furniture Company


An internationally-recognized designer of high-end furnishings needed more functionality and integrations than its legacy compensation system could offer. The older application required a lot of technical and manual modifications for each new bi-annual compensation cycle, which resulted in many inefficient processes.

It wanted to offload reliance on its internal IT staff by deploying a new system that offered greater self-service capabilities. It also sought a subscription-based model to further alleviate its internal staff from managing the new system.


The company chose the Oracle HCM Cloud co-existence model so it could take advantage of modern capabilities and processes while still maintaining its legacy system of record. In addition to implementing the system, Emtec configured the cloud model’s compensation app to automatically calculate Merit, Equity and Bring to Minimum adds to base pay, which the company had to do manually in its previous system.

The Emtec team also built in eligibility rules and made it easier for managers to input pay recommendations or changes. It also created a custom security role for HR users as well as various other customizations for the company.


Now the furniture manufacturer has a more automated way to manage compensation changes without having to rely on its IT staff. Managers can generate the pay changes on their own, and statements and informational letters are automatically generated when a change is made. The Oracle HCM system also offers streamlined reporting and budgeting capabilities for the company.

The cloud configuration also enables the company to be more flexible because it enables managers to change the labels or overall look of reports and statements by themselves instead of waiting for internal staff to develop the changes outside the system and then enter them manually back in, as they had previously done.
