"SAP SuccessFactors, in my opinion, is the best cloud-based HR solution tool for any size business.""SAP SuccessFactors is a very reliable and stable solution.""The tool is easy to use for performance management. We haven't experienced any issues with SAP SuccessFactors for performance management, which is great. However, since we're still learning to use it fully, we might not utilize all its available features yet.""What I appreciate most about SAP SuccessFactors is that it has all the modules in one platform. SAP SuccessFactors is the best option in the market for HR use cases. I also find the solution user-friendly.""All of SuccessFactors' features are useful, but there are several modules within SuccessFactors that I find handy. You have Employee Central, which manages employee records within the system. It manages all the information about an employee, including names, addresses, account numbers, positions, org charts, etc. It also handles performance reviews and KPIs for employees within an organization. Then you have succession planning and development as well.""It is a scalable solution. I would rate it a ten out of ten.""The most important feature is the ability to follow up on the yearly performance of the team. It's very good for management to understand how people are performing.""The UX in SAP SuccessFactors is good."

"I would like to have recruitment and acquisition features added to this solution.""The HR portal, training model, and the development career model all need improvement.""training and performance could be improved.""The HR portal, training model, and development career model could all use improvement. Stability and scalability should be improved as well.""Meta4 could improve by allowing users to manage things by themself.""The user interface could be improved and the maintenance is complex when it comes to upgrades.""The solution is a little bit slow.""In future releases, it would be useful to see reporting lines of all the team members in our business to understand who reports to whom."

More Cegid Cons →

"I don't think SuccessFactors is quite fit for use as an employee database.""The user experience could be simplified.""Integration between Employee Central and Compensation in SAP SuccessFactors is one area of the solution that has room for improvement.""LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems.""Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.""The SAP SuccessFactors updates need to be more industry-specific because every industry has specific modules. What I want to be added to SAP SuccessFactors is a chat box where SAP staff can give support to users.""The price of the solution could improve, it is too high.""There are a few features that are missing. There are specific features on the HTM, such as telecom safety, that just isn't there. It's not a very detailed solution in that sense. However, it is maybe not expected to have those kinds of features on the surface level of the product."
