The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. 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 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 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.

Sr Advisor, Delivery Executive ERP at a non-profit with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the continuous roll-out of bug fixes, new features, and functionalities. Oracle really listens to the customers and provides valuable content for when those PUMS come out.

How has it helped my organization?

It empowers users to perform ad hoc analyses themselves rather than having to go to IT or somewhere else. That makes it much more efficient for our users to do their jobs because they have access to data analysis in front of them instead of... more»

What needs improvement?

We struggle with release notes. There's a lot of information, and I would love to see release notes broken down into compartments. For example, here's security, this is what you need to do; or, here's the business side or the functional side,... more»

Maintenance Planner at St. Michelle Wine Estates

What is most valuable?

Transparency in being able to see my data is the most valuable feature. As a maintenance planner, it helps me organize myself and other people, which JD Edwards does in a user-friendly way. We can take it down to somebody probably not very... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have three different processes with three different software packages. The reason we're going to JD Edwards is that we can unify these systems. We have 7i which is what our maintenance is underneath, and then for a lot of our financials we... more»

What needs improvement?

When it comes to work scheduling in their maintenance module, it could be better. Having come from different platforms at different companies I've seen better. I think it could be more intuitive, and I struggle with training my people on how... more»

What is most valuable?

The programming language is the most valuable feature for me. I'm all about flexibility so that I can respond to what my users need. The fact that we have the capabilities to do our own customizations is huge. The programming language is... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We're a very small company, so having one product that can run basically almost every aspect of our business is very valuable. There's one thing to manage, one conference to attend. We run everything. We don't have very many third-party apps... more»

I have found a couple of bugs in my career, but more often it's just a missing functionality or inconsistent interface. I think their Transportation Management module, that's one of the bolt-ons that we have, is very limited. That would... more»

Senior Account Manager at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The user interface that I use is very intuitive, it’s to the point of what I want to use it for. For what I have, it provides me the right fields and gives me some predictive information as well, which helps in my day to day job.

How has it helped my organization?

There's a feed that comes up from Twitter and the social forums that helps me make myself available to customers, and then searching digitally into the Google and so on. That's pretty informative when I log in for my day-to-day work. That's a... more»

What needs improvement?

If they could provide reports for various organizations, especially global ones. Currently, the report fields are mostly US centric, and do not support other regions. That would be a nice feature to add. I think I’m looking for more data... more»

What is most valuable?

The allocation tool is probably the most valuable feature for us in PeopleSoft. With it, we can schedule it to run overnight and then find out what happened in the morning. Previously, everything had to be kicked off manually, and now we can... more»

How has it helped my organization?

There are definitely time savings and greater efficiency. We had a manual consolidation process, and when we updated to 9.1, we used that delivered process as well. I think over time, we're adopting more and more of what's delivered instead... more»

What needs improvement?

I know we're looking at the cloud, and I think we're tying to become more progressive, but I think that's just a cultural thing where it might be a little slower for a company like ours in that we're very concerned about security. Our company... more»

Owner at a tech consulting company with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature that I've found is that once it's configured, it's easy to use and maintain from a user standpoint. It's not something you have to keep re-configuring or programming because it breaks often. It's all-around, from... more»

How has it helped my organization?

From an organizational perspective, it obvious that the ease-of-use and ease-of-maintenance aspects of JD Edwards provides us with greater efficiency and, ultimately, cost savings. This is huge for us.

What needs improvement?

My concern is that it's not keeping pace with what's happening in the real world. Technology's moving on so quickly that the software is struggling to keep up. The company's not really investing enough in the product for additional... more»

PeopleSoft Finance Functional Lead (Contractor) at a transportation company with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

It is strong in business processes and technology. The technology is open-ended. The user interface is much more stable and really robust. The strength of PeopleSoft is that the business processes are solid.

What needs improvement?

I work with the end users. I manage big projects, multimillion dollar projects. I work as a business analyst, or as a functional lead, finance lead. I find that technology is great, technology is always great. Oracle improves it in terms of integration, porting, better tools, better user interface. But, if you go and talk to the lowest level of the users – the... more»

What is most valuable?

We love the General Ledger feature. It does what we need it to do -- financial reports of accounts payable, T&O, and T&E. I'm not called at 2 am to put out a fire anymore. And for me, the stability is extremely important. It's... more»

How has it helped my organization?

So many organizations are using it that we didn't have to develop something in-house. PeopleSoft has been around for a long time, and we bought it because it's a credible product. We didn't have to spend the money to build something ourselves... more»

What needs improvement?

We've had to build all our data warehouses and datamarts in order for PeopleSoft to do the detailed reporting that we need. I really wish we didn't have to do that. I think that if PeopleSoft had more detailed reporting we wouldn't have to do... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the integration between the HR Payroll and Financials modules. We really like the way they link and work together because there are no duplicate entries and the information flows from HR Payroll to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

There are several ways it's improved our organization. It's an all-encompassing suite of applications, and the GUI is very user-friendly. Also, PeopleSoft has a mobile app that's coming out soon, which, to me, is very cool. My client's not... more»

My developers want to use more HTML instead of the specialized tool, PeopleTools because, they say, it's better from a user perspective. Also, making it more configurable would be an improvement, so that users can modify it the way they want... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this product is the HR suite; it is leading vendor for human resources in the market. So for me, the HR and payroll features are the biggest flagship of the PeopleSoft product.

How has it helped my organization?

That's the whole thing as the payroll feature is very robust. They support a wide variety of technology. They are keeping up with these new technologies, so that means scalability is high. Performance can vary as it is dependent on what we do... more»

There are many areas in this product that can be improved, especially in regards to the EPM side since they have different products doing that. I would not go on the HR side but they have tools such as the EPM or CRM tools which need to be... more»

LATIS Area Manager - North America at a renewables & environment company with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

Every single module has some particular value depending on who the type of user is. For example, the Address Book is a master data feature. It offers a lot of different types of credits and collections. It allows you to hone in on the credit... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The product is pretty spot on. The nicest feature that I love about Address Book, and just JD Edwards in general, is that it always gives you an inquiry screen before you actually add an order entry, and it always allows you. But before you... more»

What needs improvement?

There's a lot of patches and bugs that come along when you're doing your upgrade that were not found or hidden during the user-acceptance testing. So now there's a lot of base lines that have to be applied, so that's rather disappointing.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature would be the fact that it is a ERP system that has all of its modules fully integrated without the use of middleware. We use the manufacturing modules extremely heavily.

How has it helped my organization?

We have multiple business segments and JD Edwards allows us to integrate modules across those segments. It gives us a seamless communication process, if you will. It's been a choice of management that we use single-source JD Edwards. We try... more»

What needs improvement?

This is an interesting question because they've been making improvements continuously over the last 25 years. That's one of the things that has caused JD Edwards to sustain itself. Where they might be able to make added improvements are... more»

IT and Purchasing Manager at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is its robustness, especially coming from the system we had before because it can do so many more things. For example, we can drill down into the data a lot more. That's a huge advantage for us.

How has it helped my organization?

I'm coming out of the Canadian office, and the overall system is hosted out of our US office, which is considerably larger. The Canadian office is a small operation, but we have a system that a company of our size should not be able to... more»

It's got a steep learning curve. There's a lot of terminology, a lot of extra setup stuff that seems a little complicated and a little bit of extra work that doesn't always seem very necessary. For somebody who understands it a little better,... more»

IT Analyst at a paper AND forest products with 501-1,000 employees

What is most valuable?

I like JD Edwards as I was in on the ground floor with it. I learned it from the bottom up, so I think it's easy to use. I know how to navigate around it and to find everything I need, as opposed to having to go outside the system and the way we've set it up in our company.

What needs improvement?

If you're honest about it, users are never 100% happy. They always think, "oh, this was better than that," but it's hard to come up with one single thing or a couple of small things. We've done customizations within JD Edwards that aren't part of the out-of-the-box solution. This is one area that could be improved -- the features that can be changed to fit your... more»

It's quite cost-effective in comparison with other ERPs. The rest of them are all expensive.

Manager Accounts Payable Shared Services at a non-profit with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

Our end process is going through multiple procure-to-pay systems. So the most valuable feature of PeopleSoft is the collaboration that it provides between our procurement/purchasing and accounts payable.

How has it helped my organization?

Because it links our procurement/purchasing and accounts payable, we have a single way to track transactions.

What needs improvement?

PCM, the procurement side, is weak and is far from the strongest product. It leaves a lot to be desired with the integration of the contract management module along with the purchasing. There isn't really a strong way to allow folks within... more»

What is most valuable?

The fact that it's an all-enterprise solution is the most valuable feature to me. It's fully integrated with our HR and finance departments and works well throughout our campus infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

We're able to get great support and the latest updates that are convenient. I know much larger shops running PeopleSoft, which is great because we're a small shop and we're able to handle the ERP system as well.

What needs improvement?

I think that Oracle is making a lot of improvements right now with fluid implementation, new tools in the release of 8.5.5 and version 9.2, and the fluid interface. We just need to upgrade to the latest version. But in terms of what I'd like... more»
