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

Pros
"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."

"The integration between the different models like personnel administration, work management, payroll, and time management are the most valuable and key features.""The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.""The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.""All of the core processes are very valuable aspects of the solution. These include personnel, administration, organizational structure, and payroll.""The stability of the solution is good.""The user interface is the solution's most valuable feature. It makes it easy for us to use.""HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources.""The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."

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."

More PeopleSoft Cons »

"On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.""It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.""It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.""The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.""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 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 now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.""This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's approximately $3,000,000 to $4,000,000 USD per year.""The licensing cost for PeopleSoft is 3,500 per course and the annual subscription fee is 6,500.""I don't know if they are still providing licenses or if they have suspending licenses.""There are no additional costs for licensing."

More PeopleSoft Pricing and Cost Advice »

"In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.""You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.""SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable."
