Pros
"It is a good product, and it is suitable for different client requirements. It has customization options and flexibility. You can customize a report or configure the workflow based on your requirements. Everything is there in the product, and you can customize it as per your requirement. Our clients found the automation of the payroll, leave attendance, and onboarding modules the most valuable. The Time and Attendance module is fully integrated with this solution and supports multiple data entry modes, such as barcode, biometric device, fingerprints, and face reading. Its core HR module includes features like movement, expense management, exit, and separation. The compensation and benefits module includes features like welfare, retirement, and superannuation. It also has analytical tools. You can create a real-time report based on your requirements. You can also publish that report in different formats, such as Excel, PDF, HTML, etc. It has a chatbot feature, which is using machine learning and natural language. You can ask questions about your leave balance, attendance, or things like that, and you will get an immediate reply from the chatbot. It also supports approval through email.""The performance management system is really good.""In general, the solution is very flexible and can be configured in multiple ways."

"This solution offers good flexibility and configurability. It can handle different types of performance management.""What I like the most is the KPI management formula.""Currently, we are using the performance and goals management functionality the most. It is connected with the enterprise solution, and it is seamless. It can be easily accessed because it is available via the net. It is readily available, provided you have an internet connection. Their technical support is also very good.""The overall functionality of the solution is very good.""The most valuable feature is the onboarding module, which enables candidates to fill in their details online and smoothly transitions data from the recruitment module into the SAP database.""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.""The self-service part is most valuable. Employees and managers can do a lot of things on their own, and they are not dependent on the HR organization.""In terms of user experience, it is quite good."

Cons
"The product itself sometimes feels inconsistent because it comes with bugs.""They can improve the configuration time because it takes more time than other products to configure the system. It could be because they are managing this single product for all countries, but it would be good if they improve the implementation time because we need to implement the solutions within a timeline. They should provide some kind of auto-configuration so that the system can be configured and implemented within a certain timeline. Implementors should have a provision to configure the system in a short time. There should also be an option to move the setup or configuration from staging to production to save time. These types of automation should be there.""The mobile app and web page user experience could be more user friendly."

More Ramco HCM Cons →

"The initial setup could be simplified.""Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.""The pricing of SAP is quite 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.""I think there is room for improvement in user friendliness. In my experience, users are sometimes confused about how to use the solution.""User experience for this solution needs to be improved.""The process for long modules needs to be improved, because compared to how it's done with a competitor (Meta4), the competitor's process was simpler.""To explain one feature that I would like to see in SuccessFactors, I must describe a similar feature as seen in Oracle. In Oracle, there's a feature called Workforce Prediction, and with this feature, we can predict some of the behaviors of any employee. For example, the software can attempt to predict whether the employee might resign in future, or perhaps if they will start to perform better. This is something that is missing in SuccessFactors."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Their customized solution is pretty expensive but much cheaper than its competitors."
  • "I am not aware of the price because I was working in the implementation team, but pricing is generally based on the requirement, modules, headcount, and country."

  • "I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation."
  • "If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago."
  • "It could be cheaper."
