SuccessFactors Employee Central Review: "A good beginning to cloud HR"

The main objective of moving to SuccessFactors EC (from SAP ECC HR) was to cut out an enormous amount manual work involved in managing employee status changes.
  • SuccessFactors EC provides a very smooth navigation across the application, specially compared to SAP on-premises ESS and MSS
  • Mobility is a huge plus
  • Simplified configuration
  • Level of customization is poor (especially for customers using using SAP on-premises product)
  • In the absence of platform, building complex reports, interfacing with downstream systems and building custom processes is just too much to expect from EC as yet.
  • Thumbs down to time-off management (except for application for requesting time off)
Organizations still running their HR processes on PeopleSoft-like HCM suites will find SuccessFactors EC very attractive proposition to move to. However, if you organization business process are highly customized, proceed with caution. If you are coming from SAP on-premises product, it is highly recommended to discover what you may not be able to do with SuccessFactors EC.

  • Often when there is a quarterly enhancement, the system will be brought down or something doesn't work the way it should. Maybe better "testing" prior to new releases.
If you use other products within SuccessFactors (i.e. Recruiting, Performance) having Employee Central pull all the data together and being the "hub" of your HR system, is truly a benefit.

  • Not able to manage a fluid bonus structure from within the system, whereby you can gather approvals, etc.
The payroll area is probably it's weakest [feature], but we were wanting some pretty complicated processes. Even the other system we're using can't perfectly accommodate us, but we have work-arounds in place. Otherwise the system integrates so well with so many other systems, we've upgraded our LMS by adding that package to our SuccessFactors platform.
