Mobile Platforms

PeopleSoft will work on Mobile browsers. Some pages have been designed to respond to multiple screen sizes, and some have not. Non-responsive pages should still function, but may be less aesthetically pleasing and could present anomalies.

Apple iOS

Devices that use iOS 5, 6, or 7 with Apple's Mobile Safari Browser are supported.


Devices that use Android 4.4 with the Chrome browser are supported.

Hardware Compatibility

Central systems analysts and developers have to meet certain hardware requirements.

In general, if the system can run the latest version of the supported browsers, it should be able to run PeopleSoft applications. While PeopleSoft Applications will function at the minimal hardware level, the user experience may be subpar. With higher speed processors and more RAM, PeopleSoft product response time improves significantly.
