We have a hybrid environment for a few departments so we use ActivTrak to track their productivity on their work-from-home days and it provides a clear analysis between the productive vs non-productive times during their work days. We have less than 10 people that we monitor so I'm not sure how well-suited the system is or if there are any better options for larger companies. It certainly suits our needs though.

Well suited: For employee leaning management system (LMS) - Successfactors LMS allows orgs to deliver and track employee training programs. It addresses issues related to skill gaps, compliance training and overall employee development. Less appropriate: For Workforce analytics and reporting: I personally found the analytics segment difficult and cumbersome to use.

Pros
ActivTrak
  • Detailed listings of actions at times. done by the second in many cases, very useful.
  • the productive/unproductive listings allow managers at a glance to see their employees use of time
  • Snapshots ( when properly utilized) are very helpful in troubleshooting, strange, occurrences, as well as they're used by Human resources.
  • The IT help desk is very efficient. log in to your portal, bottom right, and in minutes your talking to someone.

  • Streamlined access to HR data which can be used for deriving insights using SAP Analytics Cloud
  • End to end and seamless integration with SAP eco system and integration with other Microsoft solutions
  • Great learning experience for employees on SAP SuccessFactors platform

Cons
ActivTrak
  • Automatic time zones using the time zone of the device, to remove the constant need to change time zone per report.
  • Would be useful if you could define websites/applications directly from the top websites/application page instead of being redirected.
  • There have been problems with the monitoring application showing as not installed or detected on a machine that has it installed which is fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling the software. However, it is hard to identify user machines that have stopped working. We used to receive emails about PCs that have stopped reporting but not anymore.

  • The whole software is not user friendly from and admin side.
  • A lot of our problems have stemmed from our implementation partner not having the knowledge and experience we needed.
  • Updates to the system have been made and it’s affected too many entities in our learning module. Settings to previous uploads needed to be changed, the previous settings applied did not work the same, etc. constant updates are needed.

We are in agreement that the tool is very handy as a security companion. The system collects and retain relevant historical data to be queried when you desire e.g. in security reviews once a week.

ActivTrak is a great product that just keeps growing. Having used it for quite some time, we have been able to see ActivTrak grow and evolve as a product.

Until now we have not had serious availability problems with SuccessFactors, we had Microsoft Active Directory and SSO with ADFS and we had availability problems but because of problems with ADFS, we migrated to Azure AD and with that the availability problems of SuccessFactors because of ADFS went away. The only windows of unavailability that we have had are those that we are communicated to do maintenance and upgrades.

The performance is very good, the truth is that we have not had serious performance problems, some complex reports may take a little longer, but considering the complexity and the amount of records it is an acceptable time. We have never received a complaint from users regarding page loading speed.

Support Rating
ActivTrak
Support is always fast and the agents are ready at all times to help when an issue arises, if the tier 1 agent isn't able to provide a solution to the issue they're asked about they quickly escalate the issue to tier 2 or 3 to ensure that the appropriate support is given to the issue at hand to have it quickly solved. No issue we've had so far has taken more than two days to be solved.

SuccessFactors Employee Central gets a middle of the road rating from me because of the things it does really well - Training. It falls short with the objectives cascade and visibility amongst my reports. That's what brings it down to a 5. Objectives need to be clear and concise in order to gain buy-in from your reports, and SuccessFactors muddies that by poor delineation between cascaded attributes and my report's objectives. The whole objectives cascade can be reworked.

There should be a way to automatically implement the system without giving users the opportunity to accept or deny the program on their computers.

As we were new with all this, we would greatly appreciate if we had assitance directly from SAP so we can implement the modules with all of its features and best practices. Unfortunately, we notice that the partner left some thing incomplete.

Alternatives Considered
ActivTrak
Systrak was purchased as an application performance monitoring system but it's usage morphed into user activity tracking once the pandemic hit and everyone went home to work. Even though it did provide a good bit of data about user activities, the data collection was on the client and was not accessible if the client machine was not on and connected to a network. The agent was also not as stable at ActivTrak so there were frequently large gaps of time in the user reports which was not accounted for. This made the system unusable for employee consultations and HR activities.

Return on Investment
ActivTrak
  • Defensive capabilities immediately avoided data exfiltration from an outgoing employee.
  • Trends for underperforming or underdeveloping users can be spotted, analyzed by managers, and used within their overall development management to help staff reach their best potential.
  • Costing for targeted use is relatively low and therefore a "no brainer."

  • As my project was using SAP ECC system for ERP, SuccessFactors was well integrated with the overall project as a whole due to its compatibility being a SAP product.
  • As I have have highlighted multiple time, using SAP Analytics Cloud, we built multiple reports with help of the analytics team that presented detailed visualizations of the available HCM data
