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. It's very stable and scalable, which makes it a reliable solution.The integration between Human Capital Management (HCM) and PeopleSoft is an important feature.

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 security console should be made less complex.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.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.Setting up reports can be a bit tricky.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.There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution.They don't have worker payroll in the product. We have to solve our payroll. I hope one day they will be able to have their own localized standard payrolls for all countries.In terms of reporting, we have to rely on a consultant to do the report customization. The most important thing is to be able to do your own reporting, which it can't do. We rely so much on our consultant to customize reports for us.

Workday is an expensive solution.With a bigger budget, I would recommend SAP.
