Embracing the Cloud: Overcoming Challenges on CCASH's Transformational Journey

The Catholic Children's Aid Society of Hamilton has been dedicated to the well-being of children, youth, and families in the Hamilton community since 1953, serving as one of two child protection agencies. They collaborate closely with other community organizations focused on children and families, ensuring a harmonized and comprehensive approach to child welfare services.

In their pursuit of improvement and modernization, the HR leaders at CCASH sought a more streamlined Human Resource Information System to efficiently manage their workforce. Driven by a transformative vision, they were determined to discover an HR system that could fully meet their requirements and propel their organization forward.

As CCASH embarked on their quest for a cutting-edge HR system, they turned to Novamodus (formerly Vigilant), renowned for their expertise, and Oracle, renowned for their user-friendly applications. Drawing from their successful track record, Novamodus had previously implemented the Human Resource Suite for various Children's Aid Societies across Ontario, including the Catholic Children's Aid Society of Toronto, Family and Children's Services of Frontenac Lennox and Addington, Family and Children's Services of the Waterloo Region, and Highland Shores Children's Aid Society. With Novamodus' extensive experience working with such organizations, CCASH found confidence in entrusting them with this pivotal project.

In April 2022, Novamodus initiated the implementation process, employing our proprietary Indmodus methodology. CCASH opted to implement multiple modules, encompassing Core HR, Recruiting, Absence, Time and Labour, Benefits, and Learning. Due to limited resources at CCASH, a phased implementation approach became necessary to ensure successful project delivery..

CCASH Empowers Efficiency with Oracle Cloud

With three out of six modules now live, CCASH has witnessed a remarkable boost in operational efficiencies while managing their workforce. The implementation of these modules has equipped CCASH with powerful functionalities, enabling them to swiftly recruit qualified personnel, seamlessly oversee their existing workforce, and foster skill development through the Learning module.

Despite the constraints of limited resources at CCASH, Novamodus has adeptly employed our Indmodus methodology, tailoring the project timeline to align with the client's unique needs and their myriad responsibilities. Leveraging our expertise in collaborating with similar organizations, Novamodus has efficiently and effectively partnered with CCASH, delivering numerous milestones ahead of schedule.

CCASH expresses satisfaction with the timely and budget-conscious completion of the initial project phases and eagerly anticipates the ongoing enhancements that the implementation of phase three modules will bring. This collaboration with the Catholic Children's Aid Society of Hamilton serves as yet another testament to Novamodus' prowess in successfully implementing Oracle Cloud Applications across diverse industries.
