"I would recommend the solution. It's very stable and scalable, which makes it a reliable solution.""The solution's scalability is good.""Peoplesoft is the best payroll software in the market.""The new version of this solution is very scalable.""The customizations allow us to come up with a lot of complex labor rules. In the Philippines, there's a lot of different kinds of rules you need to be in compliance with. The solution offers up a lot of flexibility and customization that is perfect for our region's requirements.""PeopleSoft is easy to understand, where any end user that is logged in can easily navigate through the menus.""In general, this solution is user friendly and also performs well. There are two types of forms. One is a standardized form, which you can define things into. The other, you can customize so more repetition can be done in an even manner. That way, it can be designed for what the public or user actually wants. It's not very tough for any person, or layman to understand exactly what the screen requires one to do.""The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management."

Cons

More Ellucian Cons »

"The solution could have better processes and automation, or features that allow for a paperless environment.""The solution needs to work on its mobile technology. We're hoping in the next version we're working on implementing, 9.2, will have more of this.""If there is another release, they should look at going to mobile computing to stay competitive.""There could be more adaptability of the system.""Often support just asks people to install a lot of upgrades. Sometimes they don't really give you clear details as to why you need to upgrade. They just say, "You need to upgrade this because there's a newer image, etc". They never really give you the reason underlying why you are having errors.""It would be helpful for the end-user if the reports were customized. They would be able to select the fields while generating their reports.""I think the inventory part it should be simplified. There is the GR, or good receipt note, which is the time that the materials comes in, and the work days, etc. There is a lot of shuffling through pages, which creates a lot of problems for our users. They don't know which page to go to, where to create a GR, or where to create a stock entry. In other words, all the information is very daunting. It's very easy for people to understand and get a better clarity over it.""Parsing of CVs is productive but accuracy can be improved."
