"The solution has far more features, processes, and functionalities than we previously had.""The most valuable features are the ease of installation and the MM functionality.""SAP is already working on improvements by doing annual releases with enhancements.""ERP can help manage all enterprise resources. It brings them together and provides some analytical data to inform management decisions.""This product is very scalable and easy to expand.""I have found all the modules related to finance valuable, such as account management and HR. The entire suite is very useful.""The most valuable feature of SAP ERP is the integration. It can be seamlessly integrated across the board.""It has a lot of integrity of data, and it is fast. All the users feel that they can trust this data. So, data integrity is the most important value of SAP."

More SAP ERP Pros →

"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 implementation of PeopleSoft is quite complex and is not as easy as other cloud products such as SuccessFactor or Workday.""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 whole systematic flow of any query raised to HR should be improved.""Tools and UI could be enhanced.""I would like to see it become available again in Mexico.""Global payroll could be easier to use.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it."

More PeopleSoft Cons →

"It is not flexible for the users. SAP works in a specific way, and the users and the processes have to adapt to the way it works. It is hard to customize it to the level that we need for our work. It is not easy to get new extensions for process functions, modules, or activities.""SAP ERP could improve by having better integration with other platforms.""When evaluating the current version I am using now, the SAP GUI is old-style and needs to be replaced with something more modern and easy to use. However, the SAP GUI is very optimized for connection networks and is extremely good. Many people would like to have a WebGUI or something else to have access in a different way. Additionally, there could be some drag and drop functionality added because these features are normally in any website that this solution does not have.""Their support should be improved. Instead of giving a general solution, their consultants should first try to understand the problem and then resolve the same. They should properly investigate the issue before providing the solution.""It's very difficult to find people who are well versed in it.""The speed to build and the speed to deliver could be better.""Technical support could be better.""The flexibility in using the software could improve. I am from a product background and I've been testing a lot of applications, for example, Informatics. The UI, features, and cloud version could improve."
