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.

If business and financial consolidation is a problem for any organization, SAP would work very well to bring in consistency in processes and transparency in financials. The solution works well if the customization is kept to a minimal level and industry standard business processes are followed in an organization

Pros

PeopleSoft

  • Customizable - PeopleSoft Financials allows for an incredible amount of flexibility and customization which is well suited to many industries including the healthcare and utility sectors.
  • Platform Agnostic - PeopleSoft Financials has adapted to the shifting environment of multi-form-factor devices and the challenges that arise with mobile browsers and desktop power users by implementing a "Fluid" interface that can be used across all devices
  • Feature Rich - PeopleSoft Financials includes settings and configuration for virtually any situation that arises within an organization's financial model, with most transactional settings being more than is required by the industry which ensures tracking to the level the organization requires

SAP ERP

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

Cons

PeopleSoft

  • The newest version of PeopleSoft nVision requires that the client version of Excel to be 64 bit. Many companies do not support 64 Bit Excel. It would be nice if they kept the tool on the 32 bit Excel.
  • Oracle Support is not always timely in the responses to product questions or bugs discovered with PeopleSoft Financials. It would be nice if Oracle provided a Service Level Agreement for encountered bugs.
  • The archiving solution with PeopleSoft Financials is not very robust. It is cumbersome to move historical data from the transaction tables to the archive tables. Also, it would be nice if the archive tables were upgraded in the same manner as the transactional tables.

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

PRISM is a great tool to track and watch numerous financial documents. I would like to see more of an integration platform that would control tracking for specific project details. There is currently only a little section for job notes which I would like to see improve. I think navigation could be improved, but isn't the worst compared to some platforms I have worked with as it provides a tree like structure on the backend which helps synchronize information together for fiscal financials.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Alternatives Considered

PeopleSoft

PeopleSoft is much more appropriate for large organizations than the software programs listed here. I'm involved in a project to bring billing and accounts receivable functions out of "shadow systems" like those listed here and into PeopleSoft, and PeopleSoft is more robust, flexible, and standardizable. We've found it to be an excellent solution.

Main differentiator: extensive proven experience in different industries, robust solution that includes each functional area, SAP ERP is not only an accounting platform, it is also a business ecosystem. Extends its basic functionalities with products for the analysis of information such as SAP BW and now, SAP Analytics Cloud.

Return on Investment

PeopleSoft

  • I would like to see more people using this product so that we can get a better return on investment. It is a good start that 20% of the employee pool is using this product occasionally. I would like to send reminders to employees to check this out more often and remind them what benefits we provide.

SAP ERP

  • The Coca-Cola bottlers use a multi-tenant environment, and that helps their bottom line as they share a single instance.
  • Integration back to sales enables the Bottles to be more efficient and saves costs that relate to integration to 3rd party sales applications.
  • Reduces the number of 3rd party applications, which saves on operating costs.
