It's well suited. I could think of a number of things, I guess for the way that I use it most. It's really well-suited as an applicant tracking system. The way you can track activity of applicants and communicate with them is really seamless. I don't know that it's less appropriate in any regard.

  • I think the integration between the various modules is what it does best. So we use recruiting, onboarding and employee central, so that makes the process seamless from beginning to end when we're bringing new employees on and they're seeing the product in the onboarding phase as well as in the employee stage when they're hired.

  • We just recently took on onboarding 2.0. There are a lot of enhancements and features that the module needs in order to be as streamlined as the original product was. We have room for improvement in analytics, making it easier for us to run report stories and gather the data that we need to know which schemas and databases to use. And we're just now working on employee recognition and we're finding some things in there that we feel could be working a little bit better.

We have put a vast amount of time and effort into our installation- and there is more work to be done, but the system has a lot of benefits that we plan to maximize and optimize in order to generate the greatest value for everyone involved

I'd give it an eight because when there's a new user coming in that isn't as computer literate, we have a lot of clinical team members who are patient facing and they don't use the computer as much. It sometimes takes a little more handholding. So if there were video modules, it would help them step by step.

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.

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.

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.

This is a cloud-native application and it's very easy to implement and deploy across multiple platforms. This makes it a go-to tool for many organizations. However, the above-mentioned tools are no way less. They are the market leaders in the HRM department and are already established, players. But considering the price tag, they carry on license Advance Cloud HR is absolutely a no-brainer choice for organizations looking to get value for money.

At City, we currently use SAP on-premise applications for all HCM functionalities, and we have already implemented SF Onboarding, Recruitment, and Employee Central. Since we are long-time customers using all on-premise HCM applications, it's easy for business users to choose SuccessFactors products. We are delighted with the SAP HCM products we are currently using.

  • I think the implementation of the core HTM system was part of our HR transformation functional excellence program that we had, an initiative that we had going on. So the core goal or vision for that was to build efficiency, effectiveness, standardization, compliance, simplification, and building a framework. And I think some of those we definitely achieved. As far as customer experience or user experience goes, I think we have an opportunity to do better, but that's something that comes after we do the foundational outcomes, meaning efficiency, effectiveness, cost optimization, and things like that. And I do think we have achieved a lot of that.
