  3. HR Culture Implementation
  4. Data-driven Decision Making
  5. Quick Access to Information

In just one year with Peopleoma, Kordsa has implemented digitalized HR process in 6 countries.


Kordsa was having difficulty in reaching up-to-date data since all 6 countries were using different ERP platforms. Preparing a consolidated HR report was taking 2 months and it was a manual process with pivot tables in Excel. Data cleaning, mapping and singularizing were must-haves since all countries were keeping data in different formats. The accuracy of the data was always an issue due to manual work and all those challenges were leading to a lack of efficiency, time management and quality.

The Solution

By implementing Peopleoma, Kordsa Team can immediately access the data they want for all countries in any detail, regardless of the time difference and the ERP platform used and can make data-driven decisions and improve agile working methods. Data transparency helped everyone to be on the same page.

The Roadmap

The implementation process has started with Turkey, Headquarters to create a success story that will inspire other sites to complete their integrations.

It started with data cleaning and HR-Web Integration. Followed by dashboards which was a huge step toward efficiency. All HR-related reports and presentations were automatized as a first step.

Peopleoma Highlights, Smart Organizational Chart, Employee Magic Cards, and Payroll Analytics were onboarded afterward.

With Peopleoma Highlights everyone received suggestions, information and alerts where needed. It helped HR culture implementation for the whole organization.

The manual workload was eliminated with Peopleoma Smart Organizational Chart and Employee Cards.

2nd step for completion of the HR Analytics Project was Peopleoma Predictions. For all key HR KPI metrics such as turnover, retention, overtime, leavers and the number of employees, forecasting the future figures was onboarded.

After Kordsa Turkey onboarding was finalized it was followed by Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil and the USA.

Peopleoma has successfully integrated with local ERP platforms for each country, cleaned the data and onboarded the HR Analytics platform.

What is Next?

  • Who should be paid how much?
