SAP

It is not very well suited for a highly dynamic company. Suppose it's a startup, and your job is to just be everywhere and work as a generalist, and there are people like you in the company; it'll be hard to monitor and track those people in terms of constant updates regarding their roles and performance.

Financial reporting is sometimes tricky in our field because
some oil and gas fields are depleted, and the standard methods of activating
abandoned oil wells will have high-cost variability. Therefore, in this scenario, Workday Financial Management made internal financial reporting statements pretty seamless, where initial
bid and field cost can be incorporated very easily in an asset-wise manner.
Also, cloud-based sharing was never a problem, and our lease operators never had
a problem understanding which reports belong to which asset.

Pros

SAP

  • They do a good job of rolling out new features, making sure everyone is aware of what it is, when it will happen, and providing materials.
  • They do a good job at getting their clients together and/or in touch with one another. This is always helpful to see what others have done and how it worked out, especially in the same sector of work.
Read full review

Workday

  • Workday is very organized and user friendly. I haven't heard this from any of my co workers that they faced a hard time navigating around or getting technical support.
  • The platform offers variety of options for the company to offer to their employees. This includes easy access to their time off balance, hours they have worked, and accessing pay stubs any time.
  • One of the biggest thing I notice on a lot of technical platforms is that they don't notify their users of any updates they may be making on their website but workday does a great job of notifying its user way ahead of time of any updates they may be doing

Cons

SAP

  • 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.

Workday

  • We were surprised by the lack of user guides and supporting information for day-to-day users. Granted, we could find this, but our users like guides.
  • The system could improve with contact help and chat functions if you need the answers quickly. We figured this would all have been built in.
  • Quite surprised by the lack of treasury management functionality. SAP and Oracle have it, although their modules are not that comprehensive or user friendly.

      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.

      Workday is easy enough navigate, as long as it is properly set up. With that said, it can be put together in a modular fashion as well, allowing for a very high degree of flexibility in terms of design and process delegation. Finally, it makes consolidation achievable in times previously unthinkable.

      SAP

      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.

      I feel SAP SuccessFactors is catching up on the user interface and the flexibility that is available to configure and manage business processes. You can tell that SAP SuccessFactors is making a strong push to bring SAP forward from the very technical look and feel of legacy SAP HR products. There is a much clearer focus on the employee and non-HR users.

      • Quick and non-glitchy financial reporting.
      • As more people use it, inter-department talks are always there as HR and Project managers are talking about the same software.
      • The disturbance in service is no longer the problem as It integrates the three different sectors of financial reporting.
