City of San Jose, California, Partners With Cherryroad to Successfully Go-Live on Peoplesoft Pum 39 and Tools Upgrade

CherryRoad Technologies Inc., a leading integrator of public sector software and digital technology solutions who is committed to building community engagement, has announced, the successful Go-Live of the City of San José, CA, Oracle PeopleSoft PUM 39 and PeopleTools 8.59 Upgrade. The City is now positioned to fully take advantage of all the newly delivered functionality and features to increase user productivity and adoption of best practices. This also positions the City for rolling out FLUID, sometime in the near future.

The partnership between the two organizations began in August of 2021 when the City engaged CherryRoad Managed Services to kick-off the project. At that time, the City was in search for a solution to upgrade their HCM application to the latest Image Release and Tools version.
