Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle Cloud HCM

Very well suited for permanent employees in global organizations.

Not well suited for contingent workforces as you have to pay for Oracle licenses for all of them. We are looking at moving some of our temporary associate payrolls to Oracle Cloud, but the license cost is prohibitive (even though they will not have access to most features within Oracle).

My team and I did an extensive search of onboarding tools that could meet our very specific requirements. There were few other systems that combined this level of customization with ease of use.

Pros

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Streamlines processes by making them consistent but also allows ability to slightly change those processes based upon business units needs.
  • With new newsfeed capabilities making system access more readily available to all users on all devices.
  • Allows for upgrades which allows end user to be on the most up to date product but now incorporates features to truly let you determine when to release those features.
Steve Jordan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sapling HR

  • Organization Structure: Clean and simple visual organization structure to understand the business fairly quickly.
  • Onboarding: Great tool for utilizing their questionnaire and presentation tools.
  • Employee info: Keeping all employee/workforce individual info (i.e. t-shirt sizes).
Danny Eng | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Reporting out of Taleo Learn is difficult.
  • Automation of performance plans in Taleo performance is difficult given our complexity
  • Historic performance records of terminated associates can be difficult to find due the the large number of previous associates records we have
Joshua Pekar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sapling HR

  • Though the system is easy to use and set up, getting in contact with a customer support representative can take some time.
  • As highly customizable as it is, there are some features that you cannot change or bypass.

Taleo does what we need it to do and based on the costs from both a time and money perspective, I don't see us changing anytime soon. If anything I think we will look to leverage the capabilities available that we may not already be using.

Oracle has an excellent support model. The challenge is in adopting this support model and making traditional IT and non-mature system administrators use this model. In combination with the Oracle Cloud (client) Community, the support is excellent.

Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

There is a lot of potential on Fusion. We have reaped about 10% of potential benefits. Especially on Workforce Intelligence, the opportunities are huge. The reason why we do not use the solution at its full potential is not in the product (which is simple and transparent). A roadmap is under construction to bring more of its potential to the end user.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Cloud HCM

I personally liked using Bullhorn better, everything was easy to pick up on and flowed really nicely. I feel that it was very intuitive were as Taleo does not have the same flow to it. Bullhorn also has a modern look and the ability for me to open all the jobs I am currently working on and candidate profiles at the same time

None of the other systems we evaluated could accommodate our needs. Some vendors said that they were planning to release the features that we needed, but we needed to implement a tool immediately.

Taleo (owned now by Oracle) continues to be an incredibly powerful product and it's scalability is among the most robust of any ATS in use today.

Return on Investment

Oracle Cloud HCM

  • Once Taleo is up and running at your organization you will see a ROI within your first hire. I was using a lot of outside vendors prior to using Taleo which typical cost me 20K per hire for an engineer. So it was clear to the CEO once I made my first hire using Taleo via a job posting or referral or sourcing method that the ATS was the way to go. He was quite pleased. Cut the vendor fees from 500K a year down to under 100K!

  • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
  • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
  • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
