Over 270,604 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Cloud HCM vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
Oracle have been spending a lot of time developing the HCM Cloud product, and it's now a full-featured product set as far as I'm concerned. It covers the core lifecycle of an employee, all the way through from hiring somebody, managing their... more»

Oracle should make sure all their partners are well trained, so that they can go to the client site and make themselves truly valuable. Instead of just, "Oh, it works this way," that is not. They need to be trained, and I think Oracle is... more»

The time capture from time cards to charging to projects has greatly improved because it is now all automated and flows into the GL very easily. Therefore, our payroll processing time has been shortened.
An area for improvement could be a little more testing before implementing hotfixes to make sure they do not interfere with any active customized products. Also, there are more import glitches with the new system.
