What is most valuable?

I basically deal with order management, purchasing order, inventory and accounts receivable. 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… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the inventory part it should be simplified. There is the GR, or Good Receipt note, which is the time that the materials come in, and the workdays, 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… more»

What other advice do I have?

Based on my experience, if your company is expanding on a very high level and already has good growth in it, you could do very well with Oracle. If you want to develop your own project as well, which involves standardized as well as customized forms, that would be another reason to go with Oracle. SAP has their own advantages as well, so I would not say that Oracle is the best platform. You could… more»

* It has great depth of application functionality and flexibility of developing and integrating with others. * In recent years, they added more functionality in the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Most probably, an organization cannot meet obligations without PeopleSoft (or similar applications). What I can say is, with limited resources, it makes it operational… more»

What needs improvement?

* I would like to see applications functionality as the base rather than differently priced modules. * The quality of service has gone down after Oracle took over and this… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If the organization has complex needs that require constant changes based on business changes and has a solid IT department, there might not be a better solution than… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Long back (20 years ago), we used ADP solution for payroll and some hosted solution (Saba) for some functionalities like performance management.

What other advice do I have?

Spend more time in deciding the architecture and hosting environment based on the experience (virtualization, database, clustering, load balancing, server platform) on the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

At that time, none of these solutions were there in the market (SAP, SAP SuccessFactors, Workday, etc.).

What is most valuable?

Peoplesoft is the best payroll software in the market.

What needs improvement?

For HCM the editing criteria, especially for the time and labor section, the editing tool needs improvement. The 9.2 Time and Labor came with a lot of features. People didn't use them, instead, they used their own. The financial interface should be optimized. It's not the best way to do an interface… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing depends on the number of people using it. The fees are based on the number of users you have and the number of features or options you require. They can sell it based on the population. For example, if you have five thousand users they will charge a base amount per user. It's… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's important to know the product, but know the business, it's just as important. Most are going with cloud solutions because they don't want the IT departments. When you go with the cloud, you have to accept it, you can't change it. Anytime there is a change you have to pay for customization and… more»

What is most valuable?

The answer to this question will vary from one client to another. Some Clients are more focused on the processes of how it's working within the system. Others are more focused on what they can improve by using more PeopleSoft features. Most… more»

How has it helped my organization?

People who are willing to learn the technology and follow the correct procedures can improve the way their organization operates. So from that perspective, there have been one or two of my clients where things have worked out for them, and… more»

What needs improvement?

The documentation is very easy but it becomes an issue when users don't know how critical it is for them to follow that documentation. If users don't follow the documentation, it is useless. And as soon as they have an issue, they blame… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing cost for PeopleSoft is 3,500 per course and the annual subscription fee is 6,500. That is rather expensive. I am not sure, but I believe there are some hidden costs.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. There could be more adaptability of the system because obviously it's much better now with being able to do your own reports and navigate around, which was not the case in the past. Perhaps… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the core HR, the strength, how the data is captured, and position management that gives flexibility in different organizations. Also, the work center where you can see the different steps in your activity guide. There are different tasks that need to be performed for a… more»

What needs improvement?

The reporting needs to be improved. 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. In the next release, they can look at reducing the price.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't know if they are still providing licenses or if they have suspended licenses.

What other advice do I have?

There have been a lot of upgrades in the 9.2 version with the UI and implementation of data analytics, HR analytics, the analytics dashboards have been introduced, the mobility, and the ability to use PeopleSoft applications on a mobile device. The features are good but you will have to do cost-data… more»

What is most valuable?

The HR features are the solution's most valuable aspects.

How has it helped my organization?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

The payroll aspect of the solution needs improvement only because a lot of the enhancements with PeopleSoft are obviously geared towards the North American region. It's not geared well towards us as a small market in Southeast Asia. A local… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We pay a yearly licensing fee.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant; I've used the solution for five years and have marketed the solution for two years. We handle the private cloud deployment model with Amazon as the cloud provider. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If they offered… more»

What do you think of PeopleSoft?

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for Campus Solutions, HR and finance.

What is most valuable?

We find the Campus Solutions very valuable. Right now, we're working on making the same service for the students.

What needs improvement?

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. There are some compatibility issues that the solution should address in future releases.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for 12 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution's scalability is good.

What is most valuable?

The integration between Human Capital Management (HCM) and PeopleSoft is an important feature, especially after seeing so many stand-alone HR/Payroll systems.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides a very stable platform for us to support key applications. These include Procure to Pay, HR/Payroll, AP/AR, Fixed Asset and Financial Reporting etc. The BI component of PeopleSoft is lacking.

What needs improvement?

* Homepage and Dashboard for mobile deployment * Related Actions * Hover * Related Content * PeopleSoft Query * Pivot Grids * PeopleSoft Test Framework
