Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The scalability of BambooHR is good.""We use this solution for our end to end HR needs from onboarding and hiring to learning.""The performance goals and personal features of every employee with the dashboard is most valuable.""I like the fact that the annual days are calculated automatically and that if annual leave is taken in the future, those days are put on hold. You know at every point how many days of annual leave are you left with and how many are on hold."

More BambooHR Pros →

"The new Subledger Accounting feature is very strong.""E-Business Suite's best features are BAT functionality, flexibility, configurability, and integration with Oracle Database.""Flexible to set up an organization with multiple locations.""The solution is good for small businesses.""This solution offers customization. You'll have the ability to change and add your custom solutions and integrate them with the standard ones.""It can easily be developed into an application.""What we like about Oracle E-Business Suite is that we didn't find any issues with it. In the Indian market, the subscription solutions aren't that suitable, even in terms of the complexity of the regulations, taxes, etc., so that's why we had to go for an on-premise solution that's hosted on the cloud, and we're happy with Oracle E-Business Suite. We also like that Oracle E-Business Suite is quite flexible, and we've also built some bolt-ons and they're working fine.""The technical ability to run runtime APIs is great."

More Oracle E-Business Suite Pros →

"It has good navigation, and it is user friendly and secure. Every three months, there is an upgrade, and it has new features.""The valuable features of Oracle HCM Cloud are the frequent updates, if there are any discrepancies, we consult with our record directly and they come up with the solution for the betterment of the cloud.""The solution is very good at building out a roadmap based on client needs and feedback.""What I like best about Oracle HCM Cloud is that its configuration is okay. I also like it in terms of updates. Product updates that take place from time to time improve Oracle HCM Cloud. What I also found valuable in the product is that since it's on cloud, you can work with it from any place.""HCM solution that's easy to set up and scale, with good data integration and technical support.""What I like most about Oracle HCM Cloud is that I didn't see any area that needs to be dramatically improved. I also appreciate that it has good integration with other Oracle products. The process of integrating Oracle HCM Cloud is rather explanatory. I also found the Oracle library to be helpful. As Oracle HCM Cloud is quite a robust solution, I like it versus other solutions. I like the people at Oracle.""We have not had any issues with the stability of this solution.""Offers a good balanced scorecard capability."

More Oracle HCM Cloud Pros →

Cons
"The color palettes could be changed to make the solution a little more attractive and easier to use.""It would be useful to have the possibility to assign a task to the different users within the software.""BambooHR could be improved by managing leave in a way that transfers remaining days at the end of the annual year to the following year.""In the BambooHR performance management annual evaluations we have some limits to the questions. We can only add four extra questions, and they already have three basic questions, this is not easy for us. We would like to have more flexibility with the questions."

More BambooHR Cons →

"The on-premises version of this solution can be difficult to expand, compared to its cloud version. The on-premises version is also more limited, versus the cloud version that has a lot of improvements. Maintaining this solution is also too costly.""Areas for improvement would be that sometimes it's a bit rigid with customization and doesn't always facilitate region-specific requirements.""Earlier when our organization was small they chose Oracle because in the telecommunication industry everybody was using Oracle. Our company has grown to a size where our particularly billing phase has created some challenges and now we are looking at alternate solutions. There is not a billing engine or module that you can buy from Oracle that can be added to this EBS solution to fix our problem. They should add a billing module or engine to the solution.""The implementation took a long time but it was for many reasons. However, Oracle made sure that the solution and systems were up and running.""There are some enhancements in the process itself that is needed in the application. In the cloud version, they covered some of these areas and requirements but the on-premise version has to catch up.""Sometimes I have issues with the performance tuning.""Oracle E-Business Suite could improve the tables. When we remove some of them sometimes they cloud the modules into one. It becomes a little difficult to segregate.""It's very dependent on integration with other products,."

More Oracle E-Business Suite Cons →

"The solutions could improve by having better performance. There are times when we have experienced some delays. The reports could be quicker.""Occasionally there are problems with stability.""Product integration, particularly with collaboration tools, is lacking in this solution.""It could be more user-friendly.""The product needs to keep improving the integration tools and the tools to load the data - that whole mechanism - in order to allow for flexibility in the configuration.""I was part of a program I went to where I had a discussion on the latest innovation of the Oracle HCM. I think some of the newer technology innovations, such as gamification and consumerization are areas that could be improved.""Visually, Oracle HCM Cloud needs improvement. For example, the employee portal looks rather old, so it would be awesome if Oracle refreshed its design or if the portal looked more modern. Oracle HCM Cloud works, but visually, it needs improvement.""The support from Oracle HCM Cloud is great, they are responsive and helpful. However, they still could improve."

    Overview

    Our applicant tracking system is a surprisingly simple way to reach more qualified candidates and track, share, and evaluate their applicant information. Plus, our ATS module works hand in hand with our HR software, so you can enter data once and you're done.

    Collaborators can leave comments, rate candidates, and change applicant statuses—all within the ATS. Permissions let you control what collaborators can view, keeping sensitive information (like desired salary) private. The only hard part will be agreeing on a candidate.

    • Intuitive Interface

      Tech savvy or not, the applicant tracking system is easy to use. Your team will have no problem quickly filtering candidates, rating the best ones with a five-star rating system, and pushing job postings to free job boards and social media outlets.

    •  
    • No Duplicate Entry

      Get new hires’ basic data into your HR software with ease. Simply change a candidate’s status to “hired,” and their information will transfer from the applicant management software into the HR system. It takes less time to process a new employee than it does to say, “you’re hired.”

As long as you follow Oracle's best practices, you are able to finish the task of patching without a problem. I like that it's also easy to add products, e.g. if you want to add on financials, you can, or if you don't have financials, you can expand on that. I like that Oracle E-Business Suite is really scalable.”
