SAP Core HR and Payroll

SAP HR can be well suited for global companies with operations in multiple countries. The Payroll module needs to be limited to one instance per country, otherwise trying to maintain multiple countries on the same instance is too complicated.I would not recommend using SAP HR and Payroll for smaller companies because the total cost of ownership and the lack of flexibility will make it unfeasible. There are many cloud-based options now a days available that would fit better for this type of scenario.

Talentsoft

I think some of my problems with Talentsoft aren't so much the fault of the software as it is how my company is organized. I have to enter many different property levels so that a review gets created, I'm not certain that these fields are required by Talentsoft or by my corporate office. This software is not suited for companies where a segment of the employees do not have a company email address and/or access to a company computer

Pros

SAP Core HR and Payroll

  • It’s easy to use
  • The layout is organized
  • It is reliable
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Talentsoft

  • Having the reviews in Talentsoft makes it much easier for one person to manage the entire process from start to finish.
  • When an employee switches managers during the year, the delegation feature makes it very easy to have the previous manager add their input to the employees review.
  • Being able to have a daily import file from our HR system into Talentsoft helps in having the information in Talentsoft be current.

Cons

SAP Core HR and Payroll

  • The interface and graphic look and feel are not very modern.
  • Provide more intuitive and easier screens and functionality - Too many scroll bars.
  • Make messages back to users more descriptive.

  • I would like to have access edit and update the goal section throughout the year, not just during the review period.
  • The reporting function is very cumbersome and needs to have easier ways to create custom reports.
  • Streamline the create a review template process.
  • Email notification for employees to let their manager know when they have completed entering information in Talentsoft.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Core HR and Payroll

SAP is very intuitive to use and allows us to achieve our goals.

I think SuccessFactors is more flexible to customer needs when creating review templates and allowing access to goals year round. They also track changes for the goals. Talentsoft was selected by our corporate office before I started with the company.

Return on Investment

SAP Core HR and Payroll

  • SAP HR is suited for large companies with a sufficient budget. Small budgets will not be able to cover the expensive licensing, technical personnel and consultants required of an SAP installation.
  • In regards to the total cost of ownership, my ROI experience has been that by replacing SAP HR modules with cloud solutions we have been able to reduce the cost up to 60% while modernizing our systems and improving the employee experience.
  • I would encourage decision makers to look for cloud-based alternatives with a robust system integration, before believing that supporting every area of HR with a single SAP installation is a good long-term strategy. Having SAP HR as the core integrated to best-in-class cloud-based systems is a very valid and effective system strategy.

Talentsoft

  • Positive - Managers and employees have access to their reviews without having to contact HR.
  • Positive - Management of the entire review process is less manual and takes less time.
