Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""We use this solution for our end to end HR needs from onboarding and hiring to learning.""The scalability of BambooHR is good."

More BambooHR Pros →

"I have found the solution to have a good interface, security, and is user-friendly.""Flexible to set up an organization with multiple locations.""I like that one system covers everything.""The interface is easy to use.""The initial setup is easy.""You can group them into the BIs, which is business intelligence. You get your own key performance indicators and build your own reports or you could have your own screens, and it changes in real time.""It's a scalable product.""Oracle E-Business Suite is easy to use, and we have enough resources out in the market."

"PeopleSoft is a good core system. It has a lot of functionality. They frequently update the solution and recently they have added some good enhancements features for higher education. We just switched to the new fluid interface and that is working very well for us 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.""PeopleSoft is resilient and has the flexibility for us to customize it.""The solution is easy to scale, expand and make bigger.""It's great for helping users deal with their supply chain.""I often say that PeopleSoft's greatest feature is how customizable it is.""PeopleSoft has been fairly reliable for us. We haven't had any issues with stability.""A solid and mature product."

More PeopleSoft Pros →

Cons
"The color palettes could be changed to make the solution a little more attractive and easier to use.""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.""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.""It would be useful to have the possibility to assign a task to the different users within the software."

More BambooHR Cons →

"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.""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.""They should include database functionality.""Movement to the cloud should be supported. Product support still needs to be improved.""User interface is outdated and not user friendly.""Oracle E-Business Suite's stability could be improved as they have a lot of bugs that need to be fixed.""Some of my clients report that the overall ease of use could be simplified.""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."

More Oracle E-Business Suite 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.""This solution could be improved by lowering the cost of support.""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.""There can occasionally be complexity in the initial setup.""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.""PeopleSoft should be more flexible with the configuration. There should be less coding and more configuration.""I would like for the initial rollout process to be completed faster so that it can be implemented in a more efficient manner.""Tools and UI could be enhanced."

    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.”

    Reviews from Real Users:

    Kopano R., Freelancer at a tech services company, says, “What I found most valuable in Oracle E-Business Suite is the patching because it is straightforward. 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.”

    Mohammed G., Senior Oracle Application Consultant at a comms service provider, writes, “Oracle E-Business Suite consists of a lot of streams, such as financial and HR processes of the enterprise companies. We are using most of the Oracle financial modules, and we have an Oracle stream, FI procurement stream, and HR streams, which have a lot of applications. Oracle E-Business Suite has over 20 different modules to choose from, it is comprehensive. Additionally, the integration is very good. “
