The time system is what we get the most benefit from.The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management.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.

Cons
The API integration could be better.Parsing of CVs is productive but accuracy can be improved.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.

More PeopleSoft Cons »

There are a few features that are missing. There are specific features on the HTM, such as telecom safety, that just isn't there. It's not a very detailed solution in that sense. However, it is maybe not expected to have those kinds of features on the surface level of the product.The solution needs more localization, especially for the Middle East and Russia.Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.he user interface could be improved.The GUI needs to be enhanced to be in line with the latest and complete version of the solution.There should be more connectivity with other systems.LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems.They should improve the reports.

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.

I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation.The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.

Workday is excellent for global implementations where you want to have employees from different geographies on the same HCM platform. Workday gives you the comfort of end to end global implementation on the same platform.

SAP SuccessFactors has strength in PMS and learning. India payroll is not so strong.

PeopleSoft (Oracle HCM) has strength in core HR data management, time and attendance, and recruitment, but their learning module is quite average.

I’m sharing my experience based on the evaluation I had conducted two years back.

I have compared some with Oracle Fusion and all have their pluses and minuses.

Workday was too complex for a company to maintain. They replaced PeopleSoft (old version) by Oracle Fusion because this was
preferred due to the integration and UX.

Currently, we applied the HCM - Oracle Fusion for Capital Management in our industry operation.

We already take time for package selections of HCM solutions then we understood for success to be deployed of solutions belongs to the implementation partners.

We based on the optimization triangle concepts are “SOLUTIONS – REALISTIC/APPLICABLE – COSTS”.

Big question but let me try to sum this up without diving too deep into the details.

1. Workday is the only fully in memory consolidated application on the market. It is an event-driven snapshot-based system and is SAAS only. Everything you do is an event and some of the events are exposed as business processes on the Workday business process framework. The only way to access data is through API operations.

2. PeopleSoft has been around a long time and is a database-driven application. You can access it through a browser and leverage PeopleTools to customize it to do what you need. PeopleSoft can be on-premise or hosted by Oracle. No new releases have come out in a while that I am aware of. I don’t know what the long term prospects of PS being around are. Different databases house different functional areas, i.e. HR, Financials, Student.

3. SuccessFactors is a consolidation of systems through acquisition. Its several databases being kept in sync under the covers with triggers and coding. I think parts of the application work well and others have a ways to go.

To me, the bottom line is really the technical aspects of the applications are hugely different in their approach. Workday being fully consolidated in memory SAAS solution,

PS being older highly customizable and SuccessFactors being a bunch of systems under the covers all pushing data between different databases to keep things in sync. Functionally I would say they each have their wheelhouse.
