SAP SuccessFactors

Success Factors is really well suited to handling needs of my organization. They've done a good job integrating with our course catalog and making it easy to book courses right from within the application. It falls short in letting managers cascade their objectives easily. When I cascade an objective, the cascaded objective will often inherit comments from my own objective and share them down to my reports - not ideal behavior.

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 SuccessFactors

  • Assignment Profile: This is an automated way of assigning courses and activities to users (through user interface configuration or through data feed synchronization).
  • Plateau Reports Designer: A client tool to customize the reports in SAP SuccessFactors Learning, widely used by most of the large organizations.
  • BizX integration: It's a SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) platform to connect the talent management and human resource management. It has a comprehensive view of the organization's resources skills, expertise, experience, and competency, etc.
  • Domain, Domain Restrictions and Roles: This is mainly to create an organizational structure and to provide the needed security permissions.
  • Integration with Jam, Skype and WebEx, etc.

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 SuccessFactors

  • The app for ios and android have room for improvement. They are aware of the limitations but amount of access and functionality is not where it needs to be.
  • The homepage of Successfactors takes longer to load and refresh itself. Especially true when viewing employee files. That is partially due to how much information is having to show on the page but it still seems to take more time than usual to show each screen.
  • You can't change the amount of time the homepage will lock you out from inactivity. This might seem minuscule but it causes so many painful re-logins and time wasting effort to login again. There currently isn't an option to change the time before lockout.

Talentsoft

  • 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.

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.

SF has good support from SAP. It is not as good as some of the core SAP products but it's getting better. Also, there are a number of SIs that are very familiar in this space and it's easier to get external support. The tool also has support for multiple integration platforms to connect the on-prem core ERP to the cloud-based SF solution.

Alternatives Considered

SAP SuccessFactors

As a whole, SuccessFactors is tough to beat. It's at its best when all of the modules are working together. There are few competitors that offer the full talent suite.Individually, the quality of the modules can vary. The performance and goal management modules perform well but the recruiting one significantly lags its competitors. The recruiting world has seen a lot of advances in technology over the last few years but these have yet to trickle down into the SuccessFactors module.

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 SuccessFactors

  • Visibility to the organization was an immediate impact and socialized the value of the product immediately.
  • A common and aggregated performance process reduced time and energy spent on quarterly goal setting.
  • Consolidating performance to pay outputs reduced time in some manual audit processes.

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.
