Sage
Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

SAP Success Factors has a robust framework which makes it an absolute platform for scaling and scaled companies, including the ones of larger sizes. Success Factors is contributing to maintain the data quality and automated workflows. SF had almost automated every single HR process which has removed the manual intervention altogether. It's time consuming to implement so if you're loooking for a quick fix or quick results it may not be for you.

Cons
Sage
  • Training manuals are not much useful. You always need a helping hand to move forward.
  • When you have to look up employees, we have to provide their job title which I feel is not an efficient way.

  • 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.

Reliability and Availability

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.

Alternatives Considered
Sage
We moved to Sage People from a 20+-year-old internally developed HR software. We also evaluated other HR software such as Kronos, SAP, and BambooHR. Ultimately, we chose Sage because of the extensive support they provided to us and the ability to customize to fit our organization's needs. We loved the fact that they were completely cloud-based and built on a reputable platform (Salesforce).

SAP success factors provided robust talent management, global scalability and strong analytics capabilities. And they provide strong user experience options and there is no limitation on customisation as is the case with Oracle HCM Cloud. It has the specific modules which the organisation desires and has strong existing integration capabilities and with existing systems .

Return on Investment
Sage
  • Has significantly improved our team resources by having one system and set of processes, rather than managing duplicate entry in multiple systems
  • Has allowed us to finally have a process for ensuring we can approve, manage, track and report employee PTO liability in one system
  • Improved HR Data reporting and Data Analytics for both HR and for managers, so that we can make better people and business decisions
  • Better manager and employee experiences by eliminating paper based request forms and automating workflows

  • 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
