  • Previously, candidates would email their resumes, and staff would manually match their qualifications with vacant positions – one email at a time. Taleo’s Candidate Management system will allow the office to develop concise interview questions and efficiently identify the top 5 percent of candidates.

  • Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) is a premier private sector university in Pakistan
  • LUMS implemented PeopleSoft Campus Solutions as the system to take care of their higher education business needs on an end-to-end basis. The implementation was carried out in 2008 and it was the first such endeavor in the country. As is true for most first time attempts, the implementation was not perfect and some modules, such as Student Financials, were not implemented. In order to address core financial needs, LUMS also implemented SAP Financials and put into place a bespoke online admissions system
  • As the usage of the system grew, LUMS realized that they needed to upgrade and revamp the system and put into effect those modules that had not been implemented. The institution also faced in-house capacity issues as far as day to day maintenance and support of the system were concerned
  • In this context, LUMS floated an RFP that sought vendor support for the following:
    • On-going support for the existing implementation of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
    • Up gradation of PeopleSoft to the latest version/patch
    • Implementation of the Student Financials Module
    • Integration between PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and SAP Financials
    • Integration between PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and their existing Admissions system
    • Integration between PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and UniTime Scheduling Solution
  • Addvantum was selected as the vendor of choice to carry out all of the above on the basis of its strength of local presence and acknowledged expertise in the area of PeopleSoft Suite of products in general and PeopleSoft Campus Solutions in particular
  • As of now, Addvantum has successfully implemented all of the above mentioned enhancements and is now engaged with LUMS in a number of new initiatives that consist of enhancements, support and additional developments. These are:
    • Audit of the existing Academic Structure in the current PeopleSoft Campus Solutions implementation
    • Configuring Advisement for all LUMS’ 50 distinct academic streams
    • Development of the Hostel Management System
    • Development/Re-vamping of the Grader, a bespoke system integrated with Campus Solutions
    • Other small enhancements and extensions, such as the Graduate Audit Form implementation

Addvantum looks forward to continuing its excellent professional relationship with a prestigious client like LUMS.
