"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.""Meta4 could improve by allowing users to manage things by themself."

More Meta4 Cons →

"The speed of technical support can be improved.""SAP HCM could improve by having more resources and making it more user-friendly. It is complex.""I'm currently working for a state-owned government company, and we need to follow some standards and regulations. We also have a strategy to be followed. Sometimes the template and the format are not available in the SAP HCM, so we have to work around this limitation. The tax also sometimes changes in my country, and we have to redo everything to change the payroll calculations, benefits, and things like that. The talent management feature can be improved. It is currently very simple in SAP HCM. SAP is also very hard to integrate. In terms of monitoring, there are no monitoring tools, but as long as we take care of the disk capacity, there is no problem.""SAP HCM has many different channels for communication with the consultants which makes it complex. There are delays when there is a problem.""The extensibility of the integration could be improved.""It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA.""There needs to be a renovation of the interface and functionalities of the talent management modules.""The solution is rather expensive."
