PeopleSoft Room for Improvement

Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
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. It's very easy for people to understand and get better clarity over it. I would like to see order management or purchase order screens, with all of the information there on a single line, so you just have to scroll the page to the right side to view all of the information. If you work in inventory, however, you have to keep on changing the screen, one after another. I think that is not perfect, so improvement can be done here. In terms of additional features, I would like to see a list of employees entered into the organization, their attendance, payroll, and other things that are more linked to Oracle. Only the name of the employee which is entered into the Oracle Master is there, but the in and out system of an employee and other things like payroll, salary, etc., are not included in Oracle. For those things, we have to use another software or ERP. For human resources, we have one ERP and for daily transactions, we have another ERP. I think Oracle can take this part of the detailed system and attendance into Oracle so that it is right there in one ERP. Oracle could handle all of the transactions, whether they are in human resources, accounting, supply chain, or any other department. View full review »

* 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 can be restored, and scope for online search could be improved. * Tools could be simplified and added for more auto typing and improving the current Java support.

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 between HCR and financial. It runs like it was a patch job. In the past, the financial was separate and HCR was separate. When they came out with a new interface, people were too lazy to undo their current work. Commitment accounting also needs improvement. If there is another release, they should look at going to mobile computing to stay competitive. View full review »

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 PeopleSoft. As soon as they cannot figure something out, they play the blame game. There is always room for improvement, but I find that people are moving over to working on the cloud more now. So now developers don't have any more to add because cloud is like the place to go. But perceptions differ, and I still feel that it's better if it were on-premises, because there is always the possibility of errors while working on the cloud. Data might get lost, for instance.

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. View full review »
IT Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
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 market model that's easily configurable and can be deployed as quickly as possible to different companies here in Southeast Asia would be very helpful. If we could integrate a lot of localizations that would apply it to areas in Southeast Asia that would be much better. View full review »

The whole systematic flow of any query raised to HR should be improved. For example, if I raise a query, I cannot see the status. I don't know if it's under review, or if someone is reviewing it or not. If it is taking quite a long time and you're worried about it, then you can't see if somebody has had the chance to review it or not. In the future, I'm expecting to see a complete user flow. It should be a complete flow of the process for the end-user and it should connect with the line managers, as well as others in the same area. View full review »

We needed to do a lot of integration with third-party applications in order to get the functionality that we needed. The API integration could be better. View full review »

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. View full review »

Reporting is easy to create, even for complex ones. Visualization is almost nonexistent and can be improved. It's good to be able to eport to PDF and excel with fast timing. View full review »
