Dell Boomi (Boomi) announced the Onboarding Solution Accelerator– designed to help companies more quickly add new employees into the organization and effectively support them from day one. The new solution connects both systems and people to drive rapid and effective employee onboarding resulting in better experiences and faster time to employee-effective-productivity.
"Silos and manual handoffs in any sort of onboarding process add friction and are expensive for the organization," said Steve Wood, Chief Product Officer, Boomi. "The best onboarding experiences thoughtfully combine the right people across the organization with efficient processes through the use of technology and that's the solution we're enabling with this new release."
Boomi supports an organization's digital transformation journey while understanding the realities of the enterprise. Boomi provides a unified integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) that includes application and data integration, master data hub, B2B/EDI management, API design and management, workflow automation and application development.
Business initiative-focused offerings by Boomi like the Onboarding Solution Accelerator, combine the power of the Boomi unified platform with pre-built dashboards, workflows, connectivity and data models users can leverage to automate the process. The package also includes implementation services that consist of "JumpStart" training, architecture review, and project management support.
Streamline Process, Deliver Better Experience
The Onboarding Solution Accelerator allows companies to bring together processes and workflows from across the organization, connecting both on-premise and cloud applications. It also creates an automatically maintained data repository that provides a "single version of truth" for employees and customers. Prebuilt dashboards, workflows, connectivity and data models can be leveraged to automate end-to-end onboarding. These capabilities combined, bring together the onboarding experience for employees into a unified, seamless process in order to:
- Reduce Manual Effort - Digitize the entire onboarding process to automate management and paperless workflows. Minimize manual data entry and greatly reduce human error. Automate management of compliance notification and escalation workflows.
- Streamline Collaboration – Create efficient, consistent and flexible experiences for the onboarding team. Provide and automate real-time visibility into onboarding workflows to reduce turnaround time.
- Improve Engagement - Design a unique and consistent onboarding experience that is easy-to-use and agile. Reduce attrition due to poor onboarding experiences and decrease acquisition costs for employees and partners.
Developed in conjunction with GearsCRM, a long time Boomi Partner that offers consulting and services, Boomi piloted the Onboarding Solution Accelerator earlier this year to improve its own employee onboarding practices. Since its implementation, Boomi has connected more than 27 different touchpoints to combine the right people across the organization with efficient processes. According to a recent Netskope report, the average count of HR applications across organizations is 139.
"New employees are generally required to complete too many tasks in too many different systems from the moment they apply for a job to starting on their first day," said DJ Krebsbach, Chief of Staff for Boomi. "We decided the employee onboarding experience would not be about systems and processes, but instead about getting to know the company and its culture in a way that elevates employee productivity. Onboarding Solution Accelerator has allowed us to save time, creates a better employee introduction to Boomi and ensures our new employees can focus on getting to work and making an impact starting right away."
"From enterprises that need to onboard seasonal help to fast-growing companies like Boomi, employee onboarding impacts organizational productivity," said Paulomi Gudka, vice president of Data Services for GearsCRM, a Boomi partner. "With the new Onboarding Solution Accelerator, we are able to help our customers create a connected employee experience and provide value in record time."
