Quotes From Members

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."

"We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing.""Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution.""The solution is extremely stable.""It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response.""This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all.""The user interface is good and very easy to use.""The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.""It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."

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 »

"There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.""It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR.""Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.""Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved.""It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored.""The security console should be made less complex.""The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.""It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"

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."

"Workday is an expensive solution.""You have the license fee per module, and then you have a kind of annual training fee, which is a kind of add-on. I wouldn't say it is exhaustive; it is minor. Licensing is pretty transparent for most of the part.""The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year.""Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
