UK Leading Children’s Charity, Barnardo’s Becomes Leader in Mobile Oracle® HR
London, United Kingdom, May 19, 2016 --( Applaud Solutions UK Limited, a market leader in Rich User Experience and Mobile Applications for Oracle ® E-Business Suite, today announced that Barnardo’s, the UK’s leading children’s charity, has gone live with Applaud Self Service.

With Applaud, Barnardo’s intends to transform the way it works with Oracle® E-Business Suite by empowering employees and managers regardless of where they are based. By deploying a branded Applaud Mobile app (‘myPlace’), Barnardo’s will be mobilizing an entire workforce of 8,300 employees (with 15,000 volunteers being added in a later phase), giving them a consumer grade HR experience on any mobile device, anytime, anywhere.

Headquartered in London, Barnardo’s is a UK charity providing a comprehensive range of services transforming young lives. Last year the charity helped for 240,000 children, young people and their families. Barnardo’s has a strong focus on good stewardship and 91p of every £1 spent goes to help children.

Applaud Self Service will allow Barnardo’s to:

Engage employees and volunteers though a simple and easy to use desktop user interface that replaces the standard Oracle ® Self Service screens – this has been branded as myPlace.

Enable users to access HR processes anytime, wherever they are, with whichever mobile device they use.

Simplify and modernise existing HR operations to increase efficiencies and productivity throughout the business.
