GreyHeller and Modo Labs Announce Partnership to Create Powerful Mobile Solutions for Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Customers
Mobile software experts team with engagement platform provider to support mobile experience for Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions
San Ramon, CA and Cambridge, MA – March 17, 2015. Modo Labs, Inc., provider of a leading mobile engagement platform for universities and enterprises that empowers both technical and non-technical staff to quickly create mobile campus apps, and GreyHeller, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) and fast-growing provider of mobile software solutions, today announced a partnership that enhances the mobile experience for users of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions. Both companies are exhibiting at Alliance 2015 (Modo Labs booth #230/GreyHeller booth #200) in Nashville, TN.
As universities and companies work to meet the needs of the new mobile majority it is critical for organizations to provide mobile solutions that meet their expectations. To improve engagement and productivity, next generation mobile apps need to provide a comprehensive, content-rich and actionable experience. Yet it has been extremely difficult for organizations to achieve their mobile vision without creating multiple apps, often resulting in siloed, less than satisfactory user experiences.
With this new partnership, a unified mobile user experience across the spectrum of University information systems is now easily within reach of any institution. Modo Labs provides a mobile engagement framework, the Kurogo™ Platform, in which either technical or non-technical staff can quickly implement and deploy mobile app experiences for any purpose and for any type of mobile user – whether for new student orientation, an alumni reunion, a faculty conference, or virtual admissions tour. Through its PeopleMobile® solution, GreyHeller mobilizes the entire stack of Oracle’s PeopleSoft applications and adapts to customizations and bundles with a powerful mobile-first approach that students, parents, faculty and staff can all take advantage of, no matter where they happen to be.
Taken together, Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions features can now be easily embedded as part of a single mobile campus solution, combining information systems and campus activities and enabling an improved user experience.
“The partnership provides a new level of functionality previously unattainable,” said Andrew Yu, Founder and CTO at Modo Labs. “Even a non-technical user can create a new module in hours, such as for a New Student Orientation event, Student Admissions or Student Retention, and embed important actions, including updating contact information, checking application status, or paying a bill.”
“Modo Labs and GreyHeller’s strengths complement each other perfectly,” said Chris Heller, Co-founder and CTO of GreyHeller. “Modo Labs provides the mobile framework while GreyHeller mobilizes the full-range of Oracle’s PeopleSoft functionality. We are excited to be providing this powerful solution for our Higher Ed and Enterprise customers.”
GreyHeller makes Oracle’s PeopleSoft mobile and secure. ERP Firewall protects ERP sensitive data from cybercrime. PeopleMobileÒ modernizes and mobilizes Oracle’s PeopleSoft, giving customers an option to costly system replacement. GreyHeller’s products are used by nearly 100 customers worldwide across all industries.

Amazing GreyHeller UI engineers – working their magic to reinvent PeopleSoft
Jennifer, Ashley and Nick are doing some seriously great work re-imagining PeopleSoft’s UI. Their work in creating a whole new look for PeopleSoft is behind our a-ha moment – PeopleSoft, Reinvented.
We believe PeopleSoft is still the best ERP system on the planet. However, the hundreds of PS customers we know all have a love-hate relationship with their PeopleSoft systems. They love the way it works and its flexibility but hate the user experience.
We originally hired our superstar UI engineers to update the UI of our industry leading mobile solution, PeopleMobile®. With Jennifer in the lead, the UI engineering team did such an awesome job that we realized we could apply the same techniques to the PS desktop experience and completely re-invent PeopleSoft.
When we pitched this our key customers their response was totally enthusiastic. In their minds what we’re doing is making PeopleSoft pages responsive to whatever the access device might be – mobile phone, tablet, desktop.
