The Best Core HR Software for Enterprises

Enterprise Core HR Software TrustMap

The Top Rated Core HR software products among enterprise companies (those with more than 1,000 employees) are Ceridian Dayforce HCM, Vibe HCM, Oracle PeopleSoft and Workday. Oracle's PeopleSoft is a legacy product with a very large enterprise user base, but it is approaching end of life. Oracle has been encouraging customers to migrate to Oracle HCM Cloud, which is a cloud ERP suite including human capital management, financial management and CRM. We will include that product in a future version of this guide, pending adequate review density.


The TrustMaps™ compare Core HR software products, based on end-user satisfaction ratings and evaluation frequency.

In order to be included in a TrustMap™ and in this guide, there must be at least 10 reviews and ratings of a product on All ratings and reviews come from authenticated end-users of the software, and the vast majority of reviews are sourced independently of vendors.

For this guide, we have segmented ratings and reviews by the size of the company using the product, based on number of employees. Our market segments are:

  • Small to Medium-sized Companies: Up to 1,000 employees
  • Enterprises: More than 1,000 employees

Our goal was to create an objective visual depiction of which core HR tools offer the leading solutions in each market segment. We have created each TrustMap™ on two dimensions:

  1. Average User Rating: The average “Likelihood to Recommend” rating - a representation of overall satisfaction - by users within each market segment who have written reviews on TrustRadius.
  2. Estimated Evaluation Frequency This metric indicates how often a product is evaluated on TrustRadius by a particular market segment. It is measured by unique page views of pages associated with a given product - product descriptions, reviews and comparisons and is multiplied by the percentage of customers within that market segment. This percentage is calculated based on the mix of user reviews and ratings on TrustRadius. Products with large installed bases or those experiencing significant growth momentum are evaluated more frequently.

The red dotted line depicts the median user rating. All products above the red line are classified as “Top Rated”. Products further to the right on the graphic are those products that are most frequently searched for on TrustRadius. High search volumes may indicate either positive or negative sentiment – people evaluating a product either to select or replace.

Satisfaction ratings are one factor to consider in your search for a Core HR solution. It's also important to consider your feature requirements and the particular strengths and weaknesses of each product. The rest of this report provides an evaluation of each software product, including pros and cons, market segment focus, and other insights gleaned from end-user reviews on TrustRadius.
