SAP SuccessFactors

SuccessFactors has helped our organization get on the same page in regard to evaluations rather quickly. The other year our organization acquired 6 hospitals. Getting them up and running was a large undertaking in general, but when it came to evaluations, it was imperative we had them using the same criteria. Most of them were still using paper evaluations, so getting them into the electronic system and then training was a process. The ease of the system though made it a lot smoother.

For a medium sized company I believe Skyward is an acceptable and not too complicated system. I do not work with the back end so I am not aware of the reporting capabilities which would be a deciding factor for some companies. For K12 Education it seems to check all the boxes

Pros

SAP SuccessFactors

  • It has a global database, and it is globally accessible. By using this solution, we have moved away from paper.
  • It has improved my organization by enabling us to efficiently manage our personnel.
  • SAP SuccessFactors' most valuable feature is performance management.

Skyward HRMS

  • Skyward is superior in tracking and submitting PTO
  • Skyward is accessible in the cloud so 24/7 access
  • Menus and screens are fairly easy for non-technical users to navigate

Cons

SAP SuccessFactors

  • Getting employees trained on the product is an essential part of process change management. With SuccessFactors, there are so many possibilities, it is imperative that all employees are trained. Untrained users may not be able to use the tool to its fullest potential and may encounter difficulties as they attempt to use it.
  • To create reports that can use data from multiple modules, reporting tools must be easier to use and have more controls over date ranges and capabilities. - Make the Position Management equal to or better than SAP R/3 Organization Management.
  • After changing to a twice-yearly release schedule, I have noticed that the releases have become somewhat unstable in terms of testing all the pieces in a timely manner.

Skyward HRMS

  • The Captcha screen can be needlessly complex or hard to guess due to letters overlapping
  • Then time off screen defaults to 0 hours when creating a new entry and the zero does not get replaced... turning 8 hours into 80 hours unintentionally

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.

Not part of the selection process, but the new Skyward system is fr easier, user friendly and full featured than previous systems I have used

Return on Investment

SAP SuccessFactors

  • We are just now getting the reports out to locations to better provide the ROI. One big area I am already seeing is in the recruiting portal in which you can pull "time to fill" and "diversity" candidates in which in previous HRIS it was harder to view and pull that data.
  • Negative impact is having to train 30000+ employees to learn a new system and processes. That has impacted the ROI but will eventually require less HR support as greater access/ease of use for employees will limit HR administrative tasks. This will allow more time to perform other functions.
  • The real time updates has provided less wait time for employees to see critical changes as it relates to payroll. The positive review and engagement from employees has been tremendous.

  • Previously we had multiple systems for licensed and unlicensed staff, Skyward brings it all together creating a same experience for all users
