More Ellucian Pros →

"Scales up very well.""The PeopleSoft interface is very good.""The feature that I have found most valuable is having the sources so that you're able to adapt the product to your needs. That was a big benefit.""It's a mature product.""PeopleSoft has been fairly reliable for us. We haven't had any issues with stability.""The solution is easy to scale, expand and make bigger.""The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management.""It's great for helping users deal with their supply chain."

Cons
"The functionality for monitoring satisfactory academic progress has room for improvement."

More Ellucian Cons →

"Scalability is not there in PeopleSoft. Its performance and resilience are also very bad. When you're trying to stretch it, it breaks. It is not resilient. It is also not stable. It is stable as far as data is concerned, but the infrastructure is not stable.""There can occasionally be complexity in the initial setup.""The area that could be improved is the upgrade process, it's not the easiest. Oracle stopped supporting our version. So we have to move either to the cloud or work in a non-supported situation. That was certainly a disadvantage. That's also the reason why we decided not to stay with Oracle. Now we are moving to SAP.""The whole systematic flow of any query raised to HR should be improved.""PeopleSoft should be more flexible with the configuration. There should be less coding and more configuration.""An area for improvement would be that it's quite difficult to learn how to use this product, and the documentation provided isn't helpful in giving you practical advice.""One of the areas that could improve is the capability of utilizing mobile for some of the self-service activities that are missing. They are running on the older platform. What is happening is people are focusing on the cloud. PeopleSoft is a good provider and should into the cloud. That could be an advantage for them. Customers would not have to go find another solution that is a completely different platform that has different functionality altogether.""The UI and user experience are not great, and it's not as feature-rich as today's systems. Furthermore, our implementation does not include all the components we need, like payroll or some other functions."
