More PeopleStrong Cons →

"SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions.""SAP HCM has many different channels for communication with the consultants which makes it complex. There are delays when there is a problem.""HCM could improve compatibility, making it more accessible via web applications and graphical interfaces.""The product's learning and development features could be better, including new exclusive LMS tools.""The implementation of the solution can be a bit difficult. They should make it easier. If it could be as simple as the SuccessFactors implementation that would be ideal.""System usability is a challenge.""It needs a lot of end user training as it is not intuitive at all.""It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA."
