Likelihood to Recommend

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM

Great for mid-size to large organizations and public sector employers that need tools for payroll, recruitment, talent management, and workforce management along with all the other core HCM services. It is not, however, a one-stop shop for all needs. Some of the reporting tools and solutions seem inadequate or not up to industry-wide levels.

Pros

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM

  • Employee Payroll is divided into weekly and monthly, and we have different employees such as contingent worker and temps. All these are properly and tactfully handled by Position Management.
  • We keep our system up to date with latest tax update versions. Our payroll is smooth flawless since the introduction of Payroll for NA.
  • Base benefits allow proper maintenance of employee and dependent health benefits as well as vacation and leave accruals.

Cons

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM

  • Although the customization is a strength, this is largely due to some business systems of PeopleSoft being out of date. The HR system for talent management is pretty poorly designed out of the box. There are updates from Oracle that may have the system more comparable to other popular applicant tracking systems, but ours is fairly bare bones. As a result we’ve customized this entirely, and unfortunately deal with a fair amount of internal errors. Luckily from the outside our applicants and candidates do not face issues.
  • Our current PeopleSoft version is not mobile compatible and overall they were behind the ball in implementing mobile friendly systems. As a business and society of always on the go, the inability to effectively utilize all services from a tablet or phone is disappointing. Again, there are rumors of mobile compatibility upgrades, but the upgrade is too pricey for us to take on at this time.
  • The performance management function was very old fashioned. It was difficult to manage and utilize by both team leaders and employees. Our organization recently removed the performance management function and went with an entirely different system. As a rapidly changing and evolving business strategy the check a box and numerical rating on individual performance was not adaptable to a more personalized goal setting performance review process.

PeopleSoft HCM has provided a very flexible platform for our HR needs. The ability to add customizations to handle some of our unique business processes have been critical in the longevity of our PS HCM use. We've been able to handle a wide variety of business processes for multiple subsidiaries due to the ability to customize when needed.

The overall usability works well for our organization since we don't have rigid controls in place. We're able to handle the uniqueness of the multiple subsidiaries that we support while using a common platform for HCM services. It also provides a way for us to handle exception processing and processes that aren't within what is considered 'normal' by allowing us to customize the application as needed.

Overall support has been positive and Oracle has gladly sent out representatives to meet with our teams in person. Despite sometimes sow and inadequate fixes, their willingness to try and meet face to face helps give them a better name in our organization. Sometimes their people do not understand unique needs of the industry, and it can be a challenge to explain that one size does not fit all. Finding the appropriate IT support for our unique requests has been hit and miss.

Implementation

  • Gain consensus on the process as much as possible rather than changing the system to handle unique processes
  • Develop standard security procedures that can be easily automated where possible.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM

SAP, ADP, Dynamics GP. The only software or service that is comparable is SAP, but Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is far easier to implement in my opinion. Dynamics GP is less expensive, but a lot more limited in its ability. To get the same features in Dynamics GP you will need many third party add-ons, which means a more complex and less stable system.

Return on Investment

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM

  • We are five years into it and do not regret the decision. We have definitely achieved several business objectives thanks to having purchased the PeopleSoft HCM application.
  • We have increased our efficiency and improved our internal controls remarkably since this purchase.
  • The only negative has been some resistance from a few of our locations and fear of the "unknown" but for the most part most of our staff has embraced this implementation.
