This is a strength because every organization has different needs and wants to uncover different information, so making it customizable is great.

Again, every organization needs different information and more options would help other companies adapt and get what they need. There weren't many upgrades or releases to the platform.

The cost of the platform should be looked at carefully because it is not cheap. It's probably more suited for organizations that mature and are out of growing infancy stages. This system is much better and more advanced than our previous system, so that in itself is a ROI for streamlining processes and making things easier, faster, and more efficient.,Not a member of any user groups,CampusNexus Student and PowerSchool Special Education,MS SharePoint, Jobvite, Technomedia Talent Management SuitePeopleSoft Campus Solutions EvalPCS is the backbone of our Student Enrollment base.

The user interface for functional areas is intuitive and can be customized. There has been both a positive and negative impact on staffing. Whereas you had most of the current staff get on board and learn the new system, there was that small group that either didn't, or couldn't, embrace and learn the new system. So, although we did lose some staff because of the PeopleSoft implementation, we also added some very experienced talent that has helped us move forward. Cost was a factor as well. Upfront costs, as well as maintenance costs, are not cheap and something to be considered. Although it has been a huge benefit for procedures and functionality, the ROI is not immediate and takes time to recoup.,Not a member of any user groups,,Salesforce Lightning, Tableau Desktop, Tableau Online

Campus Solutions is used for a wide variety of back-office functions for higher education and some front end, including course enrollment and registration, grades, identity management, photos and rosters, and other key functions.
  • I think it is a great repository of information
  • We are able to handle a wide array of types of classes and students. Highly flexible.
  • They have been focused on improvements year over year and worked with us.
  • It is big and it takes a lot of resources.
  • The UI, even using the newest fluid interface, still feels dated.
I don't know if it is the right tool for a smaller school. It needs a fair amount of IT and human resource to keep it up and going. With that said, for a bigger university, it really has been a key business tool. It is what allows us to be account for all of our students, classes and grades.

PeopleSoft Campus Solutions: "PeopleSoft Review"

It's being used in my organization for everything. PeopleSoft is the main software that my organization uses. It is used for payroll, university announcements, payments, etc. PeopleSoft is used for multiple administrative works, accounting work, human resources, faculty work, and more. It addresses multiple problems because it's very versatile as a software.
  • It is very diverse and can be used throughout multiple departments
  • It's a uniform system so you only need to be trained in it once
  • It's very easy to use and not much training is needed.
  • It definitely shuts down on you after a certain amount of time
  • Since we can only use PeopleSoft, we can't add in other software
  • It can be very glitchy, and that makes it difficult to work on it
It is definitely well suited when you need to use an easy-to-learn software that can be uniform throughout multiple departments. The only scenario that I can think of that would be less appropriate would be accounting. Everything else, such as administrative work, Human resources, IT, etc would be great with this software.

PeopleSoft is well suited in the education industry, especially for smaller schools that need varying functionality related to scheduling, rosters, grades, curriculum, storing sensitive data, and student information, etc. It's not as well suited to true business models that may have less or more needs for reporting functions or that don't involved scheduling, rosters, students, etc.

PeopleSoft Campus Solutions is perfect if you are looking for a way to house and report on student enrollment data and everything that has to do with the enrolled life cycle of your student base. i.e. enrollment info, class info, graduation rates, persistence, retention, etc. If you are looking for data about your student base prior to enrollment (inquiry stage, application stage, etc.) then you would want to look at a separate system such as PeopleSoft CRM (customer relationship management) or Salesforce.
