Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It was an okay solution when we delivered hardware and we had to do maintenance.""One of the valuable features of the solution is how easy it is to use.""There's a moderate amount of scalability available.""The relation between CRM and Sales, that's the main strength of this ERP.""It is easy to use, and it has a great UI. It has very well-structured modules. In terms of setup and configuration, they're logically placed, which makes it easy for any user to pick up information and learn more about the system, rather than just be plain key users of that business operating system.""The stability is very good.""Dynamics AX provides a lot of functionality.""Support is really good."

"It is a customizable product. We can customize it based on our needs, which is one of the features that I like about PeopleSoft. As far as financial accounting is concerned, the user interface is very good. You can also configure Chart of Accounts for all performance insights.""It's great for helping users deal with their supply chain.""The PeopleSoft interface is very good.""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 solution is easy to scale, expand and make bigger.""The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management.""The time system is what we get the most benefit from.""The feature that I have found most valuable is having the sources so that you're able to adapt the product to your needs. That was a big benefit."

Cons
"There might be some features to support localizations that could be helpful to add.""There are so many errors.""There is no Arabic interface in Microsoft Business Central, which is a big weak point.""The solution in general just needs a few quality improvements.""If I had to add something in the next release, it would probably be a mobile application for a sister application of Dynamics 365; not the ERP but the Dynamics 365 HR solution. It would definitely help if we could have Microsoft or a Microsoft partner introduce a mobile application for it.""The integration could improve for the future.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors."

"We have already deployed it and we have had it for several years but we are switching to a modern HCM SaaS cloud product.""Scalability is not there in PeopleSoft. Its performance and resilience are also very bad. When you're trying to stretch it, it breaks. It is not resilient. It is also not stable. It is stable as far as data is concerned, but the infrastructure is not stable.""The API integration could be better.""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.""The area that could be improved is the upgrade process, it's not the easiest. Oracle stopped supporting our version. So we have to move either to the cloud or work in a non-supported situation. That was certainly a disadvantage. That's also the reason why we decided not to stay with Oracle. Now we are moving to SAP.""There can occasionally be complexity in the initial setup.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I don't know how much this solution costs off the top of my head, but I know that the cloud and SaaS solutions are cheaper.""It is $180 to $200 per user per month with a minimum of 20 users, which makes selling the product a bit difficult.""It's too expensive for customers to take this on themselves. As partners, we will buy this on behalf of the customers and then charge this value for each project.""The pricing is expensive.""It has a pay-as-you-go subscription."

"There are no additional costs for licensing.""We are a University and the cost and license are negotiated privately.""The main issue we have with the solution is that it is very expensive."
