    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.

    Varicent Incentive Compensation Management

    Varicent is well suited across all the domains (Finance, Insurance, Hi-Tech etc.) for sales incentive calculation. It can tackle the difficult scenarios/conditions provided by the client. This tool may not or should not be used in incentive forecasting. It's not a planning tool. Small scenario modeling can be done here but not on a large scale.
    Kumar Manas | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.

    Varicent Incentive Compensation Management

    • Flexibility - Varicent is not template based. You can implement the model specifically for your organisation.
    • Scalability - Since it is not stick to templates you are able to expand the model for other domains as well.
    • Reporting - Several ways of reporting are possible and each has their own benefit/purpose.
    • Strong/Powerfull Calculation Engine delivering fast results/speed to insight
    • User Interface is minimized to what you need and is not showing off all the functions it can "also" do
    • Strong audittrail
    • Appears to be almost unlimited in what you are able to create

    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.

    • Zions Bancorporation takes security very seriously. While we have NOT had any security issues with ICM, with it being a cloud application, our internal infosec team really wants some kind of MFA (multi factor authentication) support for off corporate network access.
    • The ICM internal workflow manager is not as flexible as we would like. For what it does, it works extremely well. However, for our purposes, it would not fit our process so we created our own workflows using presenter reports, scheduler and automated data imports. We'd love to be able to use the internal workflow and I think with recent improvements we're getting close but it's just not there yet.
    • In order to send emails to users (ie. payments need approval) we had to write an external python script. It works well but for most admins, they are not able to support it. It would be nice to have the ability to send emails based on defined triggers. The built in workflow can do this but as mentioned previously, we are not able to use it.
    • I'd like to have the ability to run a partial calculation. Currently, there is only an option to run a full system calc or a single calculation. I would like the ability to run a stream of calcs (ie. from a parent down to all children only).

    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.

    Customer support from IBM is impeccable. They are quick to respond and they don't nickel and dime you for every request you make. Their goal is to ensure your success and as a user, I really feel like they listen to my concerns. That's not to say there are no problems. All software has its issues, but I don't feel like those issues fall on deaf ears.

    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.

    Varicent's overall support while using ICM has been fantastic. Our contact at Varicent has been very responsive to emails, very rarely failing to reply to any questions or inquiries within 24 hours. Moreover, their replies are consistently thorough while being concise, and clear enough that any directions are easy to follow and apply.

    Test test test. Make sure that the product is calculating everyone 100% correctly. DO NOT accept a 70% pass rate as some companies would like to have you believe is acceptable. This means conducting thorough testing by providing 100% of all expected results, but it will be worth it when you know that the compensation plans are working entirely as expected.

    Varicent Incentive Compensation Management

    Out of all of the products I have ever evaluated for this space, Varicent is head and shoulders above the rest in my opinion. For me, I think of Varicent as akin to building an Access database while the other programs are like building an Excel data model. In Varicent you control everything from what tables are built to how they are leveraged with the calculations that you build. In the other tools, you are pushed into finding ways to leverage their pre-built mechanism of action and any deviation from what you build necessitates you to build a brand new plan. This is the key differentiator of a table driven system as opposed to a rule based one. The flexibility and usability is wholly unmatched.

    Varicent Incentive Compensation Management is a tool that allows [users] to implement the specific rules applying to the business, [without] any technical constraints from the tool. The reports would, however, need to be a little bit less rigid and add more controls regarding what has been entered by users.

    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.
