Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"A solid and mature product.""It is a customizable product. We can customize it based on our needs, which is one of the features that I like about PeopleSoft. As far as financial accounting is concerned, the user interface is very good. You can also configure Chart of Accounts for all performance insights.""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 time system is what we get the most benefit from.""It's a mature product.""The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management.""I often say that PeopleSoft's greatest feature is how customizable it is.""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."

"The most valuable feature is the ease of reporting.""The solution was very good at reconfiguration and customization of their software. It helped us to meet federal regulations.""It helps the users to enroll for the benefits automatically and update their life events without the involvement of HR individuals or back-office staff. It enables a person to take action on their own. It reduces the administrative burden on HR and puts the ownership on the person that is going through the life event, whether it is having a child, taking a leave of absence, or something else. There are easy ways to integrate Workday with your common benefits. At least in the USA, it can be integrated with common benefits providers such as Fidelity, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, etc. It has got a connector that is able to connect with the vendor or the third party to which you are trying to send the eligibility file. It basically allows us to automate or set up the tool, and the integration with the provider is a lot quicker than competing tools. When it comes to reporting on just eligibility and SLSA, it is a lot more user-intuitive. Depending on the purpose of what you are doing, you can grant security rights or roles, for example, you can control whether someone is a benefits administrator doing an independent audit. Workday makes it very easy to do that. It significantly simplifies the reporting process.""The solution is stable.""The reporting feature is quite easy for a layman to use, and the look and feel of the application is good. Its security is robust. You will never find a use case that cannot be covered.""The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability.""The user interface is good and very easy to use.""It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."

Cons
"Tools and UI could be enhanced.""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.""We have already deployed it and we have had it for several years but we are switching to a modern HCM SaaS cloud product.""The API integration could be better.""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.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it."

More PeopleSoft Cons »

"The implementation could have gone a little smoother.""The security console should be made less complex.""It is very unique as compared to other tools in terms of the employee master data and how it is organized. That's why sometimes the information needs to sit in two different systems because, in Workday, it is organized differently. This issue is not related to benefits. It is more or so related to how you categorize employees. I don't think this is a problem that could be solved. Workday is aware of this. It is one of those kinds of situations that you just got to live with.""The cost of Workday is certainly not inexpensive. It's very pricey.""The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive.""They don't offer any backend database access. This is one limitation that I found in this product. Workday hasn't opened up about what kind of database they are into, which can make it easy for the technical team to emulate issues. It would be good if they can offer backend access to the technical team. It would be helpful if they can also provide a Troubleshooting Guide that we can use to troubleshoot issues. When we have an issue, there are very limited resources to refer to.""The solution should be more user-friendly.""It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are a University and the cost and license are negotiated privately.""There are no additional costs for licensing.""The main issue we have with the solution is that it is very expensive."

More PeopleSoft Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""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."
