PeopleSoft Financials really fits well for us because it is one stop solution for all the problems. For example, our offices are in India, US, UK and we do business in multiple geographical regions. With the help of Multi currency set up we are able to post everything to ledger in one currency and do our accounting. The only place where it doesn't work is Services Procurement because there are multiple way to pay Services.

In any scenario where you are managing outreach to clients, prospects, or both, I'm hard pressed to find a solution that better manages all aspects in one place. While it isn't ideal for business development, as it is geared towards managing the sales cycle, you can certainly prospect if you keep your instances organized.

Pros

PeopleSoft

  • Vendor payments
  • Purchase orders
  • Requisitions

Salesforce

  • Salesforce.com is easily customizable and offers the flexibility needed to manage all companies whether small or large.
  • Salesforce.com is always releasing cutting edge technology which affords small businesses with access to the same technological benefits as small companies.
  • Salesforce.com has become so widely used that it helps when hiring folks because in many cases they've had some exposure to the technology.

Cons

PeopleSoft

  • Ad-hoc reporting capabilities
  • Integration capabilities with various HCMs/CRMs could be better
  • UI is not sleek/well designed. Looks pretty basic as an end-user

Salesforce

  • I'd like to see more flexibility with reporting (at not such a high cost). There are many dashboard products on the market which are free and offer better dashboard capapbilities then Salesforce does.
  • The focus on small businesses is still lacking. Understanding it's hard to scale, I'd like to see more vertical concentration in the small business area.
  • Along with more focus on small businesses, I think it would be really beneficial to Salesforce to have better focus on customer success as it related to small businesses.

Cloud based and future looking - Salesforce has either set or kept pace with the latest in technology. At least two major feature releases a year allow an organization to keep up with the latest changes. Mobile and the release of their new analytics platform are just two examples of how Salesforce continues to innovate.

Usage of the platform could be great because you have so much information at hand, but at the same time, it can be very overwhelming because of all the different tabs/categories. For the best usage, it took a lot of investment and time to get the hang of it. Integration through APIs to many other platforms is great.

All Force.com apps run on world-class data centers with backup, failover, and disaster-recovery facilities. Force.com has had a proven 99.9 percent uptime record for years. Accordingly, I only recall our instance of Salesforce having one unscheduled, brief down time over 6 years. I can't remember for sure, but it may have been due to our Internet Service Provider (ISP) versus Salesforce itself. Also, Salesforce does it's best to keep customers in the loop:

Trust.salesforce.com is the salesforce.com community's home for real-time information on system performance and security. On this site you'll find:

Salesforce performance in general is excellent. "The cloud infrastructure beneath Force.com has been fine-tuned over the past 10 years. It powers nearly 100,000+ businesses running more than 185,000 applications that 3 million users count on every day."
Points per Salesforce -
1) Multitenant kernel - With a multitenant platform, each business that uses the app doesn’t have its own copy. Instead, all businesses share a single copy and then customize it for their specific needs.
2) ISO 27001 certified security - You can’t compromise when it comes to enterprise-level security. Force.com is road-tested and trusted by nearly 100,000+ companies, including many of the world’s most security-conscious organizations, such as banks and health care providers.
3) Proven reliability - All Force.com apps run on world-class data centers with backup, failover, and disaster-recovery facilities. Force.com has had a proven 99.9 percent uptime record for years.
4) Proven, real-time scalability - Force.com is used by many of the world's largest enterprises, including Cisco, Japan Post Network, and Symantec. Applications can automatically scale from a few users to millions of page views, as needed.
5) Real-time query optimizer - You need fast access to your data. The Force.com query optimizer delivers under 300ms response time, at a massive scale.
6) Real-time transparent system status - You can always see real-time system performance, availability, and security information at trust.salesforce.com.
7) Real-time upgrades - Unlike traditional software platforms, our upgrades never break your customizations, code, or integrations. We upgrade the platform for you 3 to 4 times each year. As a result, you’re always on the latest version, with access to the latest features, performance, and security enhancements.
8) Real-time sandbox environments - With a single click, you can create copies of your applications, configuration, and data in separate environments for development, testing, and training.
9) Three global production data centers and disaster recovery - Force.com runs on three geographically dispersed, mirrored data centers with built-in replication, disaster recovery, a redundant network backbone, and no single points of failure

I think that overall support is pretty good and very scalable. When I need someone to jump on a call, they are rather fast to get back to us. However, it requires someone dedicated internally to make sure the platform is working correctly. Indeed, sometimes, you don't have time to wait for support to have things working correctly so you need someone internally.

Executive involvement is critical. Make sure you have a good handle on the metrics you would like to ultimately manage. Work as a team to document your business requirements. Whiteboard often. Understand Salesforce's best practice capabilities.

Have a central person identified to handle all report and analysis requests (ie - don't allow multiple people to create reports; have one person create reports and distribute them to decision makers via the Salesforce dashboard or whatever form). Make sure you understand critical dates and develop the project plan accordingly

Salesforce.com is by far the most versatile solution in the market. There are many choices, but none of them are able to solve as many business problems in totality as Salesforce.com is. Our organization is very disciplined in the sense of governance which is absolutely necessary in order to be successful with such a flexible tool. I have owned Salesforce.com implementations from >10 up to 14,000 users, and Salesforce.com offers the same amount of value no matter whether you're running a small business or expanding an enterprise globally

Return on Investment

  • Budget tracking
  • Could make budget reports easier to read and understand. Maybe give the option to make the font larger.

Salesforce

  • Better overall understanding of the full client experience as a lead moves through the process. It is really nice to have our internal teams using the same system and we can track how long it takes to move through each phase
  • Collaboration among teams has greatly increased with Chatter. Our remote users have no lag time when sharing updates or files, and our handoff from sales to services is primarily done via the chatter feed
