PeopleSoft moves in on mid-market

Application provider PeopleSoft has announced plans to sell its mid-market software in several countries outside the US, including Canada.

The Accelerated Solutions has been localized for language, currency and regulatory requirements of each country.

The fixed-price solution includes PeopleSoft's Internet applications, technical and end-user training and implementation services. They cover customer relationship management, supply chain management, enterprise service automation, financials and human capital management functions.

The first solution to be delivered will be PeopleSoft Accelerated CRM for the financial services, discrete manufacturing and wholesale distribution industries.

"Domestic companies are really focused on how they stay successful within Canada how they reach and expand their market and try to get global share," Smith said. On the multinational side, Smith added, Canadian companies need to carve out a voice within the scope of a global strategy.

If PeopleSoft believes that mid-market parameters change from country to country, the solution should be a viable one, said software analyst Warren Shiau with IDC Canada. What is considered a mid-market enterprise in the US is often considered a large company in Canada, Shiau said.

PeopleSoft president and chief executive officer Craig Conway also outlined changes to its flagship suite, PeopleSoft 8, and said the upcoming PeopleSoft CRM 8.8 will have an improved interface that will require a maximum of just three clicks to complete tasks, Conway said.
