American Career College, Inc. and West Coast University, Inc. (ACC/WCU) are private higher-education institutions that provide comprehensive educational experiences to prepare students for careers in healthcare. With long and rich histories as premier educational institutions offering the full lifecycle of training and education for nurses and other healthcare professionals, ACC/WCU maintain 10 locations across Southern California, Texas, and Florida, with international expansion on the horizon.
 
Challenges
  • Automate and streamline core human resources (HR) processes to support expansion of educational institutions that prepare students for careers in the rapidly growing healthcare sector
  • Create an integrated next-generation HR system with data integrity across applications—such as payroll and talent management systems—to improve user confidence and save time and money
  • Shift HR organization focus from a manual, transaction-based team to one that can focus on talent management—attracting, retaining, and cultivating a faculty that is dedicated to providing an outstanding experience to its students

Why Oracle

After evaluating the benefits of several cloud-based human capital management (HCM) solutions—including a solution from Workday—ACC/WCU selected Oracle Global Human Resources Cloud applications, based on Oracle’s vision for the solution and its dedication to investing in research and development.
 

Additionally, we selected Oracle because it is an integrated solution that enables us to automate core HR processes, eliminate paper, and better align organizational strategies, all without extensive customization.

Execution

ACC/WCU went live in December 2012 after a short, 17-week deployment initiative that involved just seven team members. As part of the deployment, ACC/WCU integrated five Oracle Global HR modules supporting core HR, talent, benefits, performance management and goal management, for a unified HCM platform. The organizations benefitted from the solution’s flexibility and configurability to reduce the number of time-consuming and costly customizations.
