It is used across the entire company for common HR access like viewing paychecks, entering and viewing PTO accrual, etc. The system handles any changes to paychecks which can include things like retirement accruals and any reimbursements. We also use this to get tax information, such as W-2 forms.
  • It’s easy to use
  • The layout is organized
  • It is reliable
  • The design looks outdated
  • Could add more functions like PTO tracking
  • The help sections aren’t very helpful
Overall it does a good job of getting done the bare necessities of what is needed. It is easy to navigate and things are well organized. I think there could be more functions added to make things more clear. The design could use some improvement to give it a more current look.

[It's] used by the whole organization. It provides a source of record for managers to view and monitor employee records.
  • Very accurate data and reporting of time - vacation, out of office, time exceptions.
  • Personnel data and records are easily accessible.
  • System down time is rarely an issue.
  • 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.
Well suited for large organizations. Not very well suited for small organizations.

SAP HR is our core system of HR records, used globally by our organization in more than 50 countries. Along with this, we make employee self-service and manager self-service available, mainly for information display and some limited update capabilities.
The Payroll module is used in the main countries. In the Americas we pay over 5,000 employees and track key demographic information for HR (i.e. for benefit and compensation administration) through SAP.
  • SAP HR is a mature system that provides robust support to global companies, with employees in multiple countries.
  • Because SAP HR is used by many global companies and has a large market share, developers and consultants are usually available.
  • Also, because SAP HR and Payroll have been used for long time, many vendors and providers will be familiar with the system and have pre-defined system interfaces to exchange information.
  • The SAP HR unser interface is not intuitive and requires significant training and experience to master. A web-based, simple and intuitive UI will mitigate this issue.
  • In general running reports and extracting information from SAP HR and Payroll is complex and time consuming. Since the reporting tools are limited and very basic, one ends up extracting raw data to be manipulated in standard tools like MS Excel.
  • The standard SAP HR and Payroll system integration tools are inefficient and ineffective; very often they fail to transfer small amounts of data requiring constant verification and rework of data transfers.
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.
