Name: Pavani Allam
Title: Functional Analyst
SDI Account Manager: Nino DiFabio
[We’re pleased to begin our new series of blog posts that highlight exceptional accomplishments by our employees.]
Pavani began her position as PeopleSoft Functional Analyst at FISA in April of 2009. Her challenge: move the company’s 20 year-old annual performance evaluation process from paper to a more efficient, paperless solution.
She has recently finished instituting a PeopleSoft-based evaluation form, customized to the City of New York’s specifications, while mimicking the layout of the original paper forms to retain a familiar look and feel. Forms are generated for, distributed to, and completed by employees, and then returned to their evaluating managers for sign-off – all entirely electronically. Tasks can be set for employees to remind them to pick up and fill out their forms. Pavani’s efforts have resulted in a streamlined, intuitive process that saves an enormous amount time and effectively eliminates waste – a truly ‘green’ solution!
Next up: Pavani is working on a project to build a health benefits system for the Office of Labor Relations to administer Health Benefits for nearly 300,000 New York City retirees. She’ll also be working to build out an electronic self-service system for them to look up and manage their benefits and paycheck information, along with similar systems for Medicare reimbursements, Income Related Medicare Adjustment Amount (IRMAA), and Welfare Benefits – all due to launch next year. Keep up the great work!
