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

Pros
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.PeopleSoft is easy to understand, where any end user that is logged in can easily navigate through the menus.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.The new version of this solution is very scalable.Peoplesoft is the best payroll software in the market.The solution's scalability is good.I would recommend the solution.

The user interface is the solution's most valuable feature. It makes it easy for us to use.The stability of the solution is good.All of the core processes are very valuable aspects of the solution. These include personnel, administration, organizational structure, and payroll.The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.The integration between the different models like personnel administration, work management, payroll, and time management are the most valuable and key features.We have managed to consolidate our payroll for all India operations on this platform.Customers can create custom infotypes to store any custom data points.

Cons
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.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.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.There could be more adaptability of the system.If there is another release, they should look at going to mobile computing to stay competitive.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.The solution could have better processes and automation, or features that allow for a paperless environment.Services that need improvement include PeopleSoft Query, Pivot Grids, and PeopleSoft Test Framework.

The implementation of the solution can be a bit difficult. They should make it easier. If it could be as simple as the SuccessFactors implementation that would be ideal.SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions.The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.System usability is a challenge.It needs a lot of end user training as it is not intuitive at all.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't know if they are still providing licenses or if they have suspending licenses.The licensing cost for PeopleSoft is 3,500 per course and the annual subscription fee is 6,500.It's approximately $3,000,000 to $4,000,000 USD per year.

In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.Licensing is pretty complex. SAP does not have a straight forward way of licensing, and it differs from client to client.The terms on which you buy licenses might change due to the way they license in a particular product.For implementation, SAP offers little support unless you buy SAP Safeguarding from SAP Consulting.Be careful and guard against future changes in licensing.
