PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Defeats Oracle, SAP, and Ultimate Software in Head-to-Head Product Competition PeopleSoft Wins Portal and Employee Self-Service Competition at Human Resource Executive’s Annual HR Technology Conference
PeopleSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced that its PeopleSoft Enterprise HRMS portal and self-service applications won the second annual product shootout competition at Human Resource Executive’s 7th Annual HR Technology Conference in Chicago. At the Portal and Self-Service product competition, PeopleSoft, Oracle, SAP and Ultimate software executives each had a fixed amount of time to demonstrate how their products could be used to complete a set of common HR tasks. More than 200 HR and IT executives who judged the competition voted PeopleSoft HRMS the best overall portal and self-service solution.
“The HR Technology Conference is the only event in the world where HCM vendors agree to demonstrate the exact same tasks so they can compete head to head on standard operations and be judged by their customers as well as their competitors’ customers,” said Bill Kutik, co-chairman of HR Technology Conference. “Clearly, PeopleSoft was the favourite of the hundreds of executives in the room, who preferred their portal and self-service solution to the competition.”
During the shootout, PeopleSoft and its competitors demonstrated how end-users would use employee and manager self-service tools within HCM applications to perform scripted tasks such as adding a dependent to an employee’s benefits, enrolling in a learning class, transferring an employee, and utilising analytics to gain insight into overall workforce performance.
“PeopleSoft’s portal and self-services solutions deliver an intuitive, streamlined user experience and direct access to critical information needed to complete common HR tasks quickly,” said Stavros Liakakos, principle marketing manager, PeopleSoft HCM. “Being recognised as having the best portal and self-service solution by attendees at HR Technology’s competition clearly demonstrates PeopleSoft’s continued HCM leadership.”
