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."

"Talent Acquisition and Learning features are best in class.""We use the cloud version to maintain all the employee records, payroll, etc. We use everything that comes with the HR suite.""The best features that were working well for us was the Goal Management and Performance Management. They were the most valuable to our organization.""It's brought to our organization a big big improvement. We would give it a good rating.""The interface is really useful and it's very easy to combine different information. For example, we can easily get reports that we need. It's very easy to create reports.""The most important feature is the ability to follow up on the yearly performance of the team. It's very good for management to understand how people are performing.""The interface is user-friendly. It is very simple and intuitive, so it's good.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the performance management module."

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 »

"The Reporting/Analytics and User Interface need improvement.""Analytics could use some work.""They should improve the reports.""We have many interruptions and disconnection points into processes, which is why we are looking to another solution. We are not so happy with the system. We believe we have in the market better solution, so we are looking for alternatives but so far the system has been used a lot.""Some of the screens aren't that user-friendly, older employees especially have a hard time with it. They have some problems with it.""LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems.""There should be more connectivity with other systems.""The GUI needs to be enhanced to be in line with the latest and complete version of the solution."

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 »

"The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.""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.""If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago.""It could be cheaper."
