PeopleSoft

PeopleSoft Financials is well suited for companies that demand manual entry for payroll or for companies with complex payroll entries. It is not well-suited for companies that do not have complex payroll entries. For a company that has mostly salaried employees, this software is not most suitable.

SAP ERP

SAP is great for large organizations looking to streamline their business processes. To get the most out of SAP's capabilities you would ideally be a large company with over 200 regular users spread across multiple sites. Also SAP works very well when dealing across multiple countries and managing multiple currencies. SAP would be less appropriate for companies where the head count was much smaller, lets say 100 users, and a single or maybe two locations were present. Also a highly customized environment with specialty processes may not be a best fit for SAP. Large manufacturing operations, in my opinion, are the best fit customers for SAP, think FORD, BURTON, SYSCO and so on.

Pros

Cons

PeopleSoft

  • PeopleSoft is owned by Oracle so any issues or bugs need to be logged through a service request (SR) via My Oracle Support. It is cumbersome to log a SR and support that is provided isn't always helpful, particularly since Oracle will not help with any customization issues. Typically lots of trace files or documentations are required before a support engineer can provide relevant input.
  • Users often got frustrated with pages that weren't as user friendly as it could be. Users want similar experience of easily navigating through Amazon web sites, but many components/pages in PeopleSoft requires user training. Then again, the ERP system is technical in nature so it shouldn't be like buying books on Amazon...
  • I mentioned the many ways to perform data integration, but web service route takes a highly skilled technical developer to do it well. There are so many pieces to the puzzle that it can be quite challenging. Also, using RESTful web service is limited by PS not supporting OAuth authentication protocol.

  • In our case, the support department is a little slow to meet important requests.
  • When the user does not remember the password, our recovery option is only the technical support department. Some recovery option by E-mail would be excellent.
  • Transactions to generate monthly reports over time have become slower. We need debugging of this. Customers are growing and transactions equal, there should be some way to optimize the process and for these reports to not take so long to generate.
  • The data export formats are of old software. They should consider updating the current formats to the new ones.

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

SAP is greatly superior to JD Edwards. JD Edwards was a manual, clunky system that didn't work well with other locations that were using SAP.

Return on Investment

PeopleSoft

  • With the ease of using reports, I have been able to manage accounts by categories increasing my awareness for profitability.
  • I would like to have a clearer system of entering time/materials into the system. Something to track outside costs before an invoice has hit as a notification would be awesome.
Laura Leistikow profile photo

SAP ERP

  • Positive impact is one stop ERP solution for all HCM needs
  • Negative impact is ECC has no place for big data, analytics, user friendly Talent system unless you integrate it with SAP SF
  • Portal is out dated and needs more fancy features
  • Workflow configuration needs simplified approach
