The application handles all key components of the PeopleSoft Time and Labor process -- establishing tables and rules, scheduling, reporting time, prior period adjustments, updates to paysheets, labor distribution, and attendance reporting.

It also records information to support the time-related needs of a variety of business functions such as compensation, cost accounting, and organization administration, while insuring the integrity of the data. PeopleSoft Time and Labor, like all PeopleSoft enterprise applications, is scalable and designed to be modified and changed according to a company's dynamic requirements.

PeopleSoft Pension Administration

PeopleSoft Pension Administration streamlines operations for all levels and aspects of pension administration, even for current systems with numerous plans or complicated structures. This initial release is specifically designed for U.S. private-defined benefit pension plans including traditional, cash balance, and contributory plans. PeopleSoft Pension Administration enables automation of pension administration functions including data storage, benefit calculations and estimates, employee communications, flexible system design, retiree administration and reporting, and data extraction.

Additionally, systems managers using PeopleTools can customize and modify the applications as the employee base evolves. When fully integrated with PeopleSoft HRMS, PeopleSoft Pension Administration enables both data collection and administrative tasks to be completed effectively without duplication of effort or time consuming transfer of information between systems. PeopleSoft Pension Administration is also available as a stand alone application.
