In my organization, we use SAP SuccessFactors for managing shift schedule, leaves and attendance checking of my reportees. also to manage their profile and payroll. we use it for performance management purpose also. we use it for goal and KRA management to set goals and also to manage and update completion of goals by employees which can help to evaluate their performance.
  • Employee self service (attendance check, leave apply etc.)
  • Leave Management (apply, approve and manage leaves)
  • Performance and Goal (Goal setting and performance management for appraisal of employees)
  • Enhance UI of Goal and Performance Management
  • Leave applied during the year not showing in manager which can be improved. manager can see only leave balance.
  • Performance and appraisal management system can be made less complex
Anyone who want one stop solution for Employee management, Leave management, Payroll management and Goal setting and performance management with a reputed and renowned brand like SAP can blinfdy go ahead with SAP SuccessFactors. one one thing i felt missing is they should add provision to see leave applied by employees during the calendar period so it can help to managers.

We use it to manage our employee populations data, hiring and termination scenarios, payroll data, managing relationships between mangers and their direct reports, and organizational structure influencing different departments and smaller teams within those larger departments. To a certain degree contract employee data is also on the platform for us in a similar capacity to full time staff.
  • From a UI perspective it is nice to look at and simple to use for users
  • The integration center is helpful for supporting our downstream platforms
  • Auditing changes to data is fairly straightforward
  • Opening multiple instances of SAP SuccessFactors seems to be supported
  • When dealing with unique organizational structures it would be nice to be able to customize existing structures to match it
SAP SuccessFactors is fairly flexible and looks clean from a user perspective to use. It can accommodate most standard organizational structures, and configuring the platform is fairly flexible and adaptable. From our experience SAP SuccessFactors is well suiting for all sizes if the cost of utilizing it works financially.

Recruiting, onboarding, HR Data, Performance and goals, LMS, and soon succession and fieldglass
  • Easy to use when it works properly
  • makes recruiting easier
  • holding HR data
  • performance review process
  • Easier way to make changes without loading data
  • Changing leaders or org data without data loads
  • replication to S/4 can be a struggle, but that is likely due to our partner...and how they set it up
  • Org Chart management should sync across the position org chart automatically instead of having to make changes in multiple places
Recruiting is great, onboarding 2.0 has been a bit of a struggle but I again believe it may be how our partners set it up.

Immediate terminations often leave the termianted EE sitting as active due to workflows, but that is kind of the way things will be when the termination has to be actioned faster

- Employee engagement and benefits - it helps us automate HR processes and solves biggest problems faced while attracting and retaining top talent.

Business problems it has helped us address include the efficiency and automation in our HR processes. It has also helped us streamline recruitment and provide tools for employee development. Additionally, its secure and helps us ensure compliance with HR regulations providing secure storage and management of sensitive employee data.
  • Strategic HR planning
  • Employee Engagement
  • Talent acquisition and retention
  • Efficiently and Automation
  • The analytics portal could have more tutorial for understanding
  • The mobile/ tab version could get more smoother and available to everyone
  • Tracking and managing leaves was little difficult owing to not so user friendly UI
Well suited: For employee leaning management system (LMS) - Successfactors LMS allows orgs to deliver and track employee training programs. It addresses issues related to skill gaps, compliance training and overall employee development. Less appropriate: For Workforce analytics and reporting: I personally found the analytics segment difficult and cumbersome to use.

Sap success factor is well suited for integrated suite covering various aspects of human capital management
And the complex Hr needs.
It is helpful in scenarios where organisation seek a unified platform for talent management and employee management. It also helps in management for goal setting and learning management.
On other sides it might be less suited for smaller business with simple HR requirements due to extensive feature set Which could be perceived as overwhelming

Successfactors helps in time management, compensation management, performance review management. It shows the organization information and user information in structured way, the graph for team heirarchy is very useful. User demographic details are presents, and other colleagues information can be accessed quickly. We can connect with the HR representative quickly.
  • User primary details management
  • Time management
  • Performance review management
  • Performance management
  • Time management
  • HR connect
SAP SuccessFactors is well suited for large enterprises with complex HR needs, global organizations requiring multi-language and multi-country support, talent management processes, self-service capabilities for employees, and robust analytics and reporting. It may be less appropriate for small businesses, highly customized HR processes, on-premises deployments, and areas with limited internet connectivity. Consider specific requirements and consult with experts to determine suitability.

I use it mainly for leave management, attendance management, goal setting and appraisal and performance rating.<br><br>as such there is no any problem in system but some times it crashes and feels bit laggy and recently it started giving otp on whatsapp messages instead normal text messages which i think not good idea.<br><br>i use it for my self and for my teammates.
  • Attendance Management
  • Goal setting
  • Leave management
  • Appraisal management
  • Performance rating
  • Otp options
  • Better time off display (setting) for leaves
  • Option to view my reportees leave ing more detail ways like howmuch they applied and howmuch left during the year
Leave management, attendance management and performance rating system is very good i say it is easy to apply leaves and approval of the same.
i think scenario where improvement needed is leaves used and left presentation needs to be better for managers so they can understand well pending leave balance of their sub cordinates.

  • Data monitoring
  • Easy access

Based on experience I can say that managing people's chart. Employee profile, payroll active etc.
Work hours from to end data storage by manual data entry takes lot of time and may went wrong. To avoid such case SAP successFactors is well suited for the large scale sectors. It give true data to employees and employer.

We use success factors as an HRMS portal, tracking various performance and peer reviews. Also, for enabling employee access to various org-wide policy documents, leave management, and org charts, amongst other things. We've had a very good experience since we switched to success factors, as it is really helpful in streamlining our performance feedback journey. We can take feedback from various peers and stakeholders easily. All of the related information is readily available for everyone, reducing the load on HR.
  • Org. charts.
  • Performance feedback.
  • Access to org policies.
  • UI could be better.
  • Navigation
  • Homepage previews.
It's a good product for taking performance reviews. We have a multi-layered feedback process where we need to take into account feedback from various leaders, Cross-functional heads, and even our peers in and out of the team.

It was wonderful experience to see the status of new employees recruitment status. I don't need to ask again and again to HR department for status of the candidates recruitment. I can simply see it on my own. Having a big need graphical data representation to a quick glance for decision making which is missing here and they can improve on it.

  • Logistics
  • Procurement
  • Manufacturing
  • Accounts
  • Bar coding
It works very good in automotive, but other places it is not so effective. Such as this do not have a nesting process to calculate the proper usage by considering wastage. Anyhow looking to most of other process, we can recommend the SAP to all other collegea in the world. We are already using SAP in our global plants.

In the human resources department we have SAP SuccessFactors to more efficiently manage the hiring and performance of our staff in general, almost the entire payroll, with exemptions for some members of the board of directors. This software helps us to have a better view of the candidates for our job vacancies according to internal requirements, we can see from the beginning before scheduling the interviews which are the best candidates according to their professional profile and previous experiences without having to manually read their sheets of lives. I also like being able to view employee performance from SAP SuccessFactors so we can dynamically interact to foster teamwork and work performance.
  • Robust management and visualization for the recruitment of new personnel.
  • Easy dynamic performance management.
  • It helps create a personalized and dynamic career improvement path that encompasses the entire company and motivates all staff to follow an established training path.
  • In these 4 years the company has had very positive results and we have increased the professional level of our employees as required by the company and we also improved the quality of hiring.
SAP SuccessFactors provides a more accurate view of the work of the company's employees according to performance and generates alerts on working hours and has improved our internal recruitment system for the human resources department. With this software we have a very pleasant interface that allows us helps manage payroll and performance in just a few steps without spending long work hours reading data. It is essential to be able to save money for the company and with SAP SuccessFactors it has been possible to significantly reduce the costs of hiring with low labor standards, which in the long term generated extra expenses because more budget had to be allocated to new hires.

As an analyst, I use SAP to retrieve the data from the database and clean it. Then use the cleaned data to make dashboards to give insights to the CXOs interms of developing a new strategy development. It can be both process related or product/service related. Which is on long term aswell as short term.
  • Storing Large Amount od Data
  • Retrieving the data easily
  • Making the entry in a simpler manner
  • Adding dealer code
  • Taking bit more time to download huge data
  • no walkthrough of the modules
SAP SuccessFactors is well suited for most scenarios that I work in, as SAP is mainly meant for making entries and making custom codes and libraries as power our requirements. Even though SAP is not necessarily meant to make dashboard, adding it would be more beneficial. As we can analyse the data and make dashboards in one place.

I recently had the opportunity to work with SAP SuccessFactors, and unfortunately, my experience left much to be desired. While the platform boasts a comprehensive suite of human capital management solutions, in my opinion, the user interface (UI) and the Career Site Builder (CSB) were major pain points that significantly impacted usability. I think the platform's failure to provide a user-friendly and developer-friendly environment poses a significant hurdle for organizations looking to leverage its capabilities effectively. Also the reason why we remove the SAP's Job board is that it's diability to post jobs directly on LinkedIn. Until these issues are addressed and the platform undergoes a much-needed modernization, it may be worthwhile for prospective users to explore alternative solutions that better align with contemporary expectations.
  • Profile Management
  • Organization Chart
  • Employee Appriciation
  • CSB Portal
  • UI Design
  • User Experience
  • Trained Technical Staff
One of the first things that struck me was the outdated UI of SAP SuccessFactors. In an era where sleek, intuitive interfaces are the norm, SuccessFactors felt like a relic from the past. Navigating through the various modules was cumbersome, and the I think the overall aesthetic lacked the modern appeal expected from an enterprise-level software solution.

I use SuccessFactors primarily for updating my time sheet, requesting time offs, viewing my comp details or even my org chart occasionally. Starting this year, we've also introduced our P&amp;G review process in Successfactors. This is great since we do not have to switch between multiple systems for different tasks. I have started my self reflection in Successfactors and it looks good so far.
  • Time Sheets
  • Leave Request management
  • P&G reviews
  • Comp details
  • UI could be better
  • Entering allowances should be easier
  • A reminder mechanism for time sheets
Successfactors does a pretty decent job for the modules that we use which are employee time management, requesting leaves, P&G reviews. I think there is room for improvement in the UI for performance management. AI is big now. We could always use some AI insights while filling up the P&G goals/reviews etc.

Success Factors helped us stabilise and automate the HR processes and impacted the business outcome positively. The suite of modules are well integrated and talk to each other so well that the data moves from one module to another without any lag. It also offers a great control of access management which takes care of the compliance aspects too. The data quality has tremendously improved with the help of SF which saves a lot of man hours which was spent on debugging the errors

  • Integrated modules that talk well with each other
  • Integration options available with other applications
  • Robust framework that bring great control to data structure
  • The framework is so complex that only a partner can help us make modifications to the processes
  • Absence of AI features
  • The implementation timelines are longer
Success Factors helped us get structure to our data sets which wasn't present pre implementation. The data from Success Factors are much reliable. It offers great reporting capabilities and live dashboards for each access of reports and trends.

On the other hand, Success Factors is ideal for companies with some existing framework which will be further improved by SF capabilities but not for companies that do not have an framework as it could take a considerable amount of time to build them in Success Factors.

SAP SuccessFactors is widely utilized for streamlining onboarding processes. It helps organizations efficiently manage tasks such as new employee documentation, orientation, and training. The platform's onboarding module enhances the overall experience for both employees and HR teams, contributing to a smoother integration of new hires into the company culture.<div>It helped me get on with my paper work after acquiring the job. </div>
  • Onboarding process
  • Categorisation of data
  • Ease of access
  • App functionality can be better
  • The email notification updates are too frequent and the mail is not viewable on all email clients
  • Better quality short pdf manuals can be made to be downloaded or accessed online for understanding it’s facilities
SAP SuccessFactors excels in scenarios requiring comprehensive human capital management. It proves highly effective for large enterprises with complex organizational structures, as it streamlines talent acquisition, performance management, and learning initiatives on a global scale. The platform is well-suited for industries with stringent compliance requirements, ensuring HR processes align with regulatory standards.However, in smaller organizations with simpler HR needs, the extensive features of SuccessFactors might be seen as overly robust and potentially cumbersome. Additionally, if there's resistance to digital transformation or a preference for localized HR solutions, the platform's cloud-based nature may pose challenges. It's essential to assess the organization's size, complexity, and willingness to embrace cloud solutions when determining the appropriateness of SuccessFactors. Customization and implementation costs are factors to consider, making it crucial to align the platform with specific business goals and requirements.
