Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle HCM Cloud

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).

I like the idea of RedCarpet. If it was fully functional for us, I really think it would be a great tool to use. However, the lack of response and the response time itself in tech support is definitely a downfall for our company

Pros

Oracle HCM Cloud

  • Payroll is easy to use and works well. Workflows have automated many processes.
  • HCM is fully integrated - Core HR, onboarding, absence management, time and labor, payroll, learning, and hierarchy. This same data is shared across ERP and EPM.
  • New digital assistants will make it very easy for our employees to get quick answers 24/7 to their problems.
  • Mobile enabled pages make it easy to access all the functions of Oracle Cloud anywhere in the world (I logged in while on vacation in Spain).

  • RedCarpet is a great system for notifications. It will let you and the employee know if there are items that still need to be completed.
  • RedCarpet is very handy for getting a headstart on paperwork that needs to be completed and stores it all in one place. It's very easy to access completed paperwork and print it out if necessary.
  • RedCarpet is user friendly from the employee side. It's easy to use and navigate through the tabs and task lists.

Cons

Oracle HCM Cloud

  • 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

  • Creation and changes to eForms require completion of a detailed spreadsheet (which can be cumbersome and complicated), also with potential costs associated. It would be ideal to be able to make the form (or potential changes) in Word and forward to the team for creation or change.
  • The task workflow and dependency/hierarchy tree can be confusing. Visually it is not appealing or easy to look at and understand, which also caused more time during the development phase. Seems that it could be more user-friendly.
  • Significant number of fields and specifications required to create each task, notification, etc. This should be simplified.
  • Notifications, document library and other features are not user-friendly. Hard to remember how to get to the correct notification, form/document and then edit, create, etc. Needs to be simplified.

Its a good system and we might as well continue with it. We don't have the time to implement another system if we were to choose something other than Taleo.

Oracle managed to maintain its useability advantage. It will have new competitors on eRecruitment, where needs are quickly changing.

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.

The individual contact people are alot more helpful than support@silkroad.com. However, once you're live, you're not supposed to use those contact people anymore, and it takes a couple days to even get an initial response from support.

Implementation

Oracle HCM Cloud

Based on 2 answers
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.

SilkRoad's training/demo video was viewed well prior to beginning implementation. HR Team did not remember details and the video was not sufficient enough to understand all of the features within the system in order to communicate needs to the vendor/implementation expert. Implementation should have been walked through, step by step, by the vendor and each section of their required spreadsheet and the development of the portal should have been explained in depth.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle HCM Cloud

Our organization considered Workday and selected HCM Cloud, but I wasn't part of that particular evaluation process. HCM Cloud's compatibility with Oracle eBusiness Suite which we currently use, was a big factor though.

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 HCM Cloud

  • 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 are able to track the employee's progress with the new hire paperwork better.
  • We are able to onboard the employee faster and effectively.
