"Scales up very well."
"PeopleSoft is resilient and has the flexibility for us to customize it."
"This solution integrates very well with other products which is helpful."
"A solid and mature product."
"The human resources aspect was probably the most valuable feature. We used it for keeping track of time and other things of that nature."
"It is a customizable product. We can customize it based on our needs, which is one of the features that I like about PeopleSoft. As far as financial accounting is concerned, the user interface is very good. You can also configure Chart of Accounts for all performance insights."
"It is a very stable ERP solution. It is also supported on Oracle Cloud and provides extensive features."
"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."
"The most valuable feature is the perfect end-to-end integration."
"I have been using SAP for more than 13 years and the new SAP S4HANA was not only a simple upgrade, they have made a lot of improvements. They have simplified a lot of the functions, the all-new interface gives users a better experience. The database itself is quite efficient in nature and it provides effective data queries. It is a good upgrade from the previous version of SAP R/3."
"The solution can scale well."
"I have found the most valuable features are the interface, which is very good for all users, and the database performance is good."
"One of the most valuable features is the in-memory database."
"SAP S4HANA has good performance and has allowed us to combine our systems."
"S/4HANA is so much faster today than it was before. High performance is one of the best features, but the backbone of S/4HANA is its integration capabilities. They've also shifted to a focus on user experience."
"I can verify and provide the overall financial aid report and also the management report."
"The whole systematic flow of any query raised to HR should be improved."
"There can occasionally be complexity in the initial setup."
"The UI and user experience are not great, and it's not as feature-rich as today's systems. Furthermore, our implementation does not include all the components we need, like payroll or some other functions."
"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."
"I would like to see it become available again in Mexico."
"PeopleSoft can improve by having proper connectors. It's very difficult to change some interfaces with the other systems."
"I would like for the initial rollout process to be completed faster so that it can be implemented in a more efficient manner."
"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 difficulty level of the initial setup depends on the person's skills. If you know the basic knowledge of the database, then it will be easy, otherwise, it will be very difficult."
"It is simple to implement SAP S4HANA. If you are already in this type of environment, then the transition is not very complex. However, if you do not then it can be difficult."
"Maybe its user interface and reporting can be improved across the board, but it is manageable."
"Technical support has been declining. They aren't as responsive as they used to be."
"The Capex and Opex could be improved."
"I have found the solution to be stable but it could improve."
"Thi solution can improve the Bill of Materials (BOM) and production planning."
"I'm not a big fan of SAP S/4HANA because it needs a lot of hardware. It is really fast, but it needs a lot of hardware. The hardware for S/4HANA is too expensive."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by SAP S4HANA users.
A Mechanical Engineer at a construction company says, “It is a very powerful, highly customizable tool. The most valuable feature is that the reporting is fast. We can see the results from that in that our commissions come in fast. That is the main advantage.”
Another reviewer, a SAP Technology Manager at a financial services firm, mentions, "It is more or less a very, very smooth and seamless product. Day by day they are increasing their technology features and they are keen to resolve the issues. India has a complex business scenario and SAP is thinking about that and resolving the issues day by day. In terms of the features I have found most valuable, I don't think that there is any lack or any gap process-wise. SAP is a very good tool."
A Project and Service delivery Manager at a tech services company comments, "One of the most valuable features, which we used the most, was the FI module, for finance. It involved controlling, account receivables, account payables, and complete financial steering."
A Senior Architect at a construction company states, “The POD applications are very useful to us. There are a few POD apps which we are using for different business scenarios. They are quite interesting.” He also adds, “The initial setup is pretty straightforward. The documentation is very good. The solution can scale well. The solution is stable.”
