"The SuccessFactors learning applications within the SuccessFactors learning modules, as well as the performance management system, are highly beneficial for each and every employee in our organization. These tools eliminate the need for using Excel to manage data, allowing for direct input into the system. This streamlines the process, making it easier to view and analyze information. We can readily access our performance history, comparing our actions and achievements from the previous year. At present, we are consistently monitoring our day-to-day performance.""SuccessFactors' best features are talent management and HR Analytics.""This solution has automatic linking and reporting features. Upgrades are hassle-free because you don't need to change everything from scratch, when compared to Meta4.""The feature I like the most is the notification bar where we can see upcoming courses that the organization requires from time to time. It's easy to track any pending courses. I also like the search feature in SuccessFactors. We can search for newly available courses that are updated in the system for completion.""It has improved my organization by enabling us to efficiently manage our personnel.""Considering the flexibility of the system and its ability to accommodate complex business processes, the product is ready to be used in multiple industries.""SuccessFactors offers all aspects of Human Resources Management. What I love most about it is that it can be implemented for any company very quickly.""SAP SuccessFactors integrated solution, allows us to start the process from a recruitment marketing perspective and have our career site and candidate profile pull through into each other."

Cons
"They had challenges getting the performance management system up and integrated with our systems.""They could include a sort of collaborative platform where employees are able to work together with a chat mechanism like WhatsApp and video chat.""It would be helpful if you could work offline because sometimes, we have problems with internet connectivity.""Sometimes, we feel that we should have an API-based integration aspect.""The global scalability and support could improve.""The solution's workflow can improve by adding more customization at the organizational level.""They could improve talent management capabilities."

More PeopleStrong Cons →

"The complete integration process between SuccessFactors modules is not at the level that all customers expect when it comes to complete HR user experience from all angles.""The product doesn't have a modernized look and is not very user-friendly like other products.""SAP SuccessFactors can improve the recruitment module and artificial intelligence features. More powerful analytics are needed.""SAP SuccessFactors' pricing structure could be improved.""I don't think SuccessFactors is quite fit for use as an employee database.""Integration between Employee Central and Compensation in SAP SuccessFactors is one area of the solution that has room for improvement.""Its overall integration and user experience can be improved. SuccessFactors is a system that is built out of three different systems. The elements part was bought from Plateau, and the original performance dialogue was built by SuccessFactors itself. After that, SAP bought it, and it hasn't improved in the last few years. SuccessFactors is a perfect tool if you use it the way it is meant to be, but if you start building custom sessions and try to use it differently, then it is a total mess. It is not agile. It is like an old Mastodon truck or whatever. We don't have the Employee Central and Competence Management modules. Our company made the choice to not implement the Employee Central module. We also didn't implement the Competence Management module. We use the learning module to do some competence management, but I am not that fond of it. It would have been best to have the whole suite. SAP should never sell this without selling the whole suite because it just doesn't work. The biggest gain for me would be having the possibility of doing strategic personnel planning and managing internal mobility. If it could be used for social purposes, such as creating communities and connecting with media channels, that would be perfect. It should also have the possibilities for local admin and agile product development.""The solution is quite expensive."

  • "The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users."

    Reviews from Real Users

    “We are using it for a lot of things: HR, performance management, and learning management. There are a lot of features embedded in SuccessFactors. We recently implemented a learning platform that employs the individual staff to actually manage their own learning. They can do it at their own pace. SuccessFactors allows you to manage your team, have calibration for promotion, and you can generate reports and see how you're doing.” - Alaba O., IT Asset Management Lead at Dangote Industries Limited
