Do You Experience These Epic and PeopleSoft User Challenges?

There are multiple challenges that organizations face in their utilization of both Epic and PeopleSoft.  These challenges may result in not only duplication of efforts, but can reduce user confidence in both systems.  Identified Epic and PeopleSoft integration challenges include:

  • Inventory processes span both Epic and PeopleSoft systems, but users are setup and trained in only one system.

  • The inventory process does not support cycle counting and inventory reconciliation (i.e. physical does not match perpetual inventory).

  • Processes and items span multiple users and are subject to interpretation and misunderstandings.

  • Replenishment is not forward looking and is not analyzed against actual history demand.

  • There are too many unsecured inventory locations and replenishment paths.

  • Exception and shortage handling results in time constraints by both the Material Handlers and Technicians.

  • There is a high volume of material movement, including a large percentages of single unit transactions.

  • There is volatility in the surgery schedule, which may include cancellations and return rates.

  • Data integrity issues require troubleshooting and manual workarounds.

  • Special conditions require manual intervention and management.
