Congratulations to our friends down under! Deakin University is live on Fluid Candidate Gateway!
In only about 8 weeks, Deakin went from their first view of Fluid Candidate Gateway to a full implementation of it. We believe that they may be our first customer to use Fluid Candidate Gateway to give their candidates a true mobile experience.
Deakin University, partnering with Presence of IT, was half-way into their Project to upgrade to PeopleTools 8.55 and implementation of Fluid, when they saw the Video Feature Overview (VFO) about Fluid Candidate Gateway. Presence of IT was able to go to the Oracle Cloud Marketplace and in just a few steps, create an environment that was a copy of the latest Update Image that had just shipped to show Deakin University the possibilities of Fluid Candidate Gateway.

The work effort was estimated to be roughly 5 functional days plus 10 technical days. Jane Hayes, Business Analyst with Deakin, states, "Outside of ensuring the Deakin customization could work in Fluid CG, it was a relatively straightforward process of documenting our Business Requirements and then testing. As with all fluid environments, testing is greater as we needed to test everything in Candidate Gateway on a desktop, then on a tablet, then on a phone to ensure it worked for all users and all devices. But it was worth it!
She continues, "I love it! It's so exciting to be able to provide our potential applicants with a modern, intuitive view of Deakin."
