Onboarding Becomes A Connected Experience for Employees

New solutions are coming onboard to help the HR team onboard faster and more effectively.

Recently, Dell Boomi (Boomi) release the Onboarding Solution Accelerator, which helps companies to quickly add new employees into the organization and effectively support them from Day 1.

According to the press announcement, 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,” he added.

Boomi also supports an organization’s digital transformation journey by offering a unified integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) that includes application and data integration, the master data hub, B2B/EDI management, API design and management, workflow automation and application development.

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 the 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 that reduces manual effort, streamline collaboration and improve engagement.

“With the new Onboarding Solution Accelerator, we are able to help our customers create a connected employee experience and provide value in record time,” said Paulomi Gudka, vice president of Data Services for GearsCRM, a partner that co-developed the solution with Boomi.

Boomi used the Onboarding Solution Accelerator to improve its 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.

“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,” he added.
