The easy to use interface and visualization experience for people using SAP SuccessFactors is one of the best in the competition. Many of the day to day operations could be done on the go without logging in into laptops and it works seamlessly. Analytics on data that gets generated can also be used very effectively in the module itself. Further integration with SAP Analytics Cloud opens up the possibilities of integrating HR data with other data sources from external world to derive meaningful and timely insights which helps take informed decisions

  • Its a SAAS model. The licensing cost of Success Factors is very reasonable compared to the on-premise SAP systems. So any customer who wants to come out of Success Factors can easily do it. This attracts customer to easily go for the new implementation.
  • The web portal of Success Factors applications is very user friendly.
  • It has seamless integration with all the mobile/PDA devises. This gives easy access to the business applications of it.
  • The JAM feature allows easy collaboration internally. Also it has seamless integration with Social networking sites.
  • It can be used by multiple tenants (customers).
  • Best part of using SuccessFactors is its connection to SAP Analytics Cloud (SAP) for detailed visualizations of all modules used using Ember Analytics.

  • Sometimes products are rolled out too fast - resulting in critical missing config options (ONB 2.0 as a great example). These missing configs can be highly dysfunctional until they are resolved - to avoid this, I recommend not using any product that hasn’t been established and fully supported for at least 2 years.
  • Performance and recruitment are still using a legacy XML supported format - which is fine end user functionality wise, but can be complex to support from an admin perspective - certain areas of these modules require partner support if you want to make upgrades or changes.
  • SF does a tremendous job at bell and whistle functionality - I often find most companies are not able to leverage more than 50-75% of the offerings though. There are however core functions or areas for improvement that are significantly less shiny but are much needed in various modules.

Support is still lacking. If we don't have a critical business need where we're looking to license something new, there is no partnership with SuccessFactors. Unless of course you purchase the Platinum Support which we did not. It is difficult for us to take advantage of new functionality when we have professional services fees that will be incurred as a result. We're in a tough economy and our budgets are slim. We don't have wiggle room to add $5k here or $10k there. The overall integration into a total HCM solution is also lacking.

For Key users, it is not really friendly. There are lot of hidden buttons which makes the experience difficult. For end user, it is quite easy.

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.

Indeed seems to have a grip on most hiring for our profession. The only reason why most companies use Indeed is that that's what most employees searching for jobs will use. While Indeed is not always the easiest to use, and it's certainly not the cheapest option, it's the most well-known. I can relate it to Mcdonald's; not the best hamburger, but it's there.

We believe that all top global providers that complete with SAP, are in the same level in terms of the main functionalities for supporting HR processes. SAP seemed to be more robust on each process, and more consistent when considering best practices applied to their modules. It may be hard to use sometimes, but it certainly has good answers to support a wide variety of scenarios and specific business needs
