"One of the areas that could improve is the capability of utilizing mobile for some of the self-service activities that are missing. They are running on the older platform.

"There's room for improvement in SAP SuccessFactors, particularly in terms of innovation. I'd like more flexibility in its functionality and more customization. In terms of what additional feature I'd like to see in the next release of the product, it depends on the module because you have various modules in SAP SuccessFactors, so it's easier to go module by module and understand what features you have in each module. The product has a lot of features coming up, but the product being more mobile, or having mobile features would be nice."
"SuccessFactors could be improved by making it usable on mobile and making its features less rigid."
"They should be more user friendly and give us more tools to make it more flexible."
