Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Adam Smith. I am a Senior Oracle Functional Consultant with fourteen years of experience implementing the Oracle HRMS suite of applications. My experience includes all facets of the implementation process – implementing, end-user training, post-production support, issue resolution and documentation. My years of experience includes implementing Oracle Human Resources, Oracle Payroll, Oracle i-Recruitment, Oracle Time and Labor, Self-Service and Oracle Learning Management.
Over the past fourteen years I have worked in a multitude of industries both public and private sector – including county and state government, public utilities, higher education, FDA manufacturing, engineering and public works, and health care to name a few. My specialty is Oracle payroll – I have been the Oracle Functional Payroll Lead on numerous projects, both union and non-union; however, I also have full life-cycle implementation experience in several of the Oracle HMRS applications.
In addition to being a senior lead functional consultant, I also have project management experience. Prior to consulting, I served as payroll clerk in the Marine Corps from 1988-1994, worked as a payroll specialist for a large temporary staffing company, performed the role of payroll accounting specialist for a property management company and was also a systems analyst for a national health care company that employed over 100,000 employees.
My extensive experience prior to becoming a consultant gives me invaluable insight and makes me a better consultant. I understand how implementations affect end-users and what the end-users are feeling because I’ve been there. Before consulting I participated on 2 payroll implementations – both PeopleSoft and Oracle.
In total – I have over twenty four years of experience in the Human Resource and Payroll industry. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in International Business that I earned while on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a Marine, I was Non-Commissioned Officer of the Month and Non-Commissioned Officer of the Quarter, promoted 4 times in 4 years, honor graduate of both Sergeant’s Course and Squad Leaders Course, member of the Color Guard and Burial Detail and learned how to shoot the M-16 rifle pretty well (5th Award Expert) all while going to school full-time as well.
My life experience and my professional experience have molded me into a highly analytical and professional consultant.
