Integrate PeopleSoft content with your existing ServiceNow portal

Employee portals are trending again as organizations look to keep their workforces connected, productive, and happy. Serving as a single place for employees to access all the information and application content they need, self service portals allow tasks to be completed without the help of HR.

Platforms like ServiceNow have been increasing in popularity as employers search for an efficient way to create an employee portal. InFlight makes it easy to incorporate PeopleSoft content into these ServiceNow portals, providing a user-friendly end result that helps enhance the employee experience, boost productivity, and improve employee satisfaction.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  1. Why ServiceNow plays such an important role in the employee experience
  2. The friction that PeopleSoft customers face using ServiceNow
  3. How InFlight can help your company eliminate that friction

1. The rise of the ServiceNow employee experience

Staying competitive throughout these new ways of working can be difficult, which is why organizations are investing in centralized ServiceNow portals for employees, allowing organizations to bring key business activities together and improve how digital services are delivered.

The value of a single employee destination

Why is it so important to have a user-centric approach? Because today’s employees expect a consumer-grade experience at work, especially when it comes to the tools they use to get their jobs done. In fact, Gartner states that in a survey of 5,000 employees, 56% said they expect to have the same quality experience that their company’s customers receive.

Employees expect tools that help them stay connected, informed, and productive, no matter where they are working, and ServiceNow’s Employee Service Center (ESC) does all of the above.

Unfortunately, there is one key issue that arises when it comes to how ServiceNow brings PeopleSoft content into their ESC. Let’s look into it.

2. The disconnect between ServiceNow Portals and PeopleSoft

One of the key parts of a strong digital employee experience is delivering a single place for users to access everything they need. But are ServiceNow portals like the ESC truly a one-stop shop for PeopleSoft customers?

Not really, because ServiceNow falls short in an important area: bringing live content into the portal from PeopleSoft, which remains the core application that many global enterprises use for employee self-service transactions.

Instead of having everything in one place, the ESC portal landing page links out to content in PeopleSoft applications. Accessing self-service content from PeopleSoft requires a separate login to get to the content itself, which disrupts the seamless experience that your employees expect.

Let’s dive deeper into the friction this creates and how InFlight can help eliminate it.

Friction in the ServiceNow employee experience

As employees spend more of their time in ServiceNow portals, it’s important to bring frequently used content into a central employee destination.

Having to switch between applications, search for information, and learn multiple systems adds complexity back into the process – the very things that ServiceNow aims to eliminate. Not only is it frustrating for employees, but it also adds unnecessary steps to common tasks and prevents users from taking full advantage of PeopleSoft.
