A scalable people platform helps shopping center achieve future readiness

Westfield, one of the world’s largest shopping centre portfolios with 90 centers in Australia, New Zealand, USA and UK, has achieved its strategic vision of creating a future ready Human Resources (HR) platform.

Westfield began its journey to upgrade its Oracle PeopleSoft Human Capital Management platform and partnered with Wipro Ltd. for this process. Wipro has successfully implemented the latest version of Oracle PeopleSoft HCM v9.2 platform, ensuring that Westfield leverages the benefits of the latest version of PeopleSoft HCM & reaffirms its leadership position within the real estate industry.

Wipro EasyU, an offshore upgrade lab and innovation tool, assisted Westfield in comprehensive impact analysis of their application landscape and accelerated the upgrade of custom components.

Throughout the implementation Westfield ensured that it standardizes its core people platform to provide scalability, improve employee experience and create an integrated recruitment process, while ensuring that the upgraded process reduces overall cost of management.

“A key component for growth is the people that form the core of Westfield,” says Peter Bourke, CIO at Westfield. “As we grow, we required a future ready and scalable people platform and Wipro’s ability to deliver value, helped us standardize our process while working seamlessly with Westfield as one team. The successful go live is a testimony to our strategic planning and foresight in IT, as we continue our endeavors to become more efficient and scalable.”

The Real Estate sector is among the focus sectors for Wipro in the Asia Pacific region, specifically Australia, and Westfield is a key customer in this segment.
