Could be better. Initial response from SAP to a ticket is slow.
GDPR also comes in the way. US is not impacted but the data centers that houses our Sf is in Europe

They are generally responsive and get you the solutions. It's just that sometimes they don't work as one SAP team and keep transferring tickets internally saying it's not our issue.

Lack of knowledge of SAP-certified implementation partner. SFX Accreditation is basically a pdf. Much better expected from SAP. Deep dive training is not recommended by SAP itself because too expensive. Customers are not considered if they are not big.

The overall platform could use the updates, so the overall look of it seems more modern. Also, the number of possible customizations could be made more simple to implement. SAP SuccessFactors does have a helpline that is helpful and free. On a positive note, it is beneficial in our performance reviews and recruiting efforts.

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.

SAP SuccessFactors has been a easy to implement tool with low risks for a sensitive thing like employee feedback. It provides powerful performance in the backend functionalities, and at the same time a great look and feel for the employees. Totally recommended.

When support was needed, there are enough resources to help you solve [issues]. Also we have an internal POC within the organization trained and equipped to solve most issues most of the time, whenever something is needed to be escalated it was centralized by this person. So this made it a better experience for all admins; still if you need to reach out directly it can be done and with no major pain.

I would say they have pretty good customer service overall. They do try their best to resolve issues over the phone but will also try to come in and meet with individual teams once yearly or more if need be.
