Cons
"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.""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.""The color palettes could be changed to make the solution a little more attractive and easier to use."

More BambooHR Cons →

"We have already deployed it and we have had it for several years but we are switching to a modern HCM SaaS cloud product.""PeopleSoft could improve by being more user-friendly. It's somewhat awkward to navigate.""I would like to see it become available again in Mexico.""Response time takes very long and requires a person to be awake night and day to benefit from it.""Tools and UI could be enhanced.""PeopleSoft can improve by having proper connectors. It's very difficult to change some interfaces with the other systems.""There can occasionally be complexity in the initial setup.""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."

More PeopleSoft Cons →

"SAP HCM could improve by having more resources and making it more user-friendly. It is complex.""The solution is rather expensive.""It would be very helpful for our company if a new version was released with the ability to contain all of the things that we have newly introduced in our company.""There needs to be a renovation of the interface and functionalities of the talent management modules.""It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA.""The current platform is quite rigid and not as flexible and end-user friendly as other HR solutions.""The extensibility of the integration could be improved.""SAP HCM has many different channels for communication with the consultants which makes it complex. There are delays when there is a problem."

    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.”


    Oracle's PeopleSoft applications are designed to address the most complex business requirements. They provide comprehensive business and industry solutions, enabling organizations to increase productivity, accelerate business performance, and provide a lower cost of ownership.

    SAP HR (Human Resource Management), also known as "Human Capital Management" (HCM), is an important module in SAP ERP systems that supports all of the human resource management processes in the enterprise.

    SAP HR records the data from the hiring of an employee to its final termination in the organization. It stores employee data such as designation, role, salary details, working shifts, address, etc.
