Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature to me is performance management because we just started using that.""The platform is on a private cloud that is fully secure with no way for hacker penetration.""In my day-to-day work, attendance tracking would be most important. That's because I have a really diverse group of employees, and I have a subset of younger folks who are struggling with their attendance. So, that's the thing that I'm most involved with currently.""The way that ADP helped us improve our organization is by making the payroll process clean and efficient because if you make a mistake there, you're in big trouble.""The most valuable features are the reporting and benefits piece.""It is a scalable solution."

"Stability-wise, it is a good tool.""The breadcrumb approach to navigation in PeopleSoft is good. nVision is also a good supplement.""The time system is what we get the most benefit from.""Scales up very well.""I would rate scalability a nine out of ten.""The most valuable feature of PeopleSoft is the functionality that allows the ability to find all the data about employees that are needed.""Scalability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten.""The new version of this solution is very scalable."

More PeopleSoft Pros →

"When I'm not working with the implementation team and I'm just talking to customer service or something, they're just not a lot of help. They don't understand how it works. They'll tell you to do something that I know would affect something else. So, it's less about the software and more about just training their folks to a higher level.""Its benefits portal could be user-friendly.""I would like to see the payroll side improved and there are a few kinks that need to be worked out.""The ease of developing and creating reports could definitely use some improvement.""The report functionality is not as good as competitive products."

More ADP Workforce Now Cons →

"Stability is an area where the solution lacks and needs to be improved.""The solution could have better processes and automation, or features that allow for a paperless environment.""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.""The Time and Labor module is not that flexible.""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 product is not intuitive, and finding the right candidate can be arduous.""The solution could improve by offering PeopleSoft site licenses. Currently, Oracle is pushing for everyone to transition to the cloud, but clients are discontent with this approach. Offering new PeopleSoft site licenses would be the most beneficial for our clients.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it."
