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.""SAP SuccessFactors is stable, we have not found any bugs or glitches.""It has a global database, and it is globally accessible.

Cons

"SAP SuccessFactors could improve the integration. It is not simple to integrate and it needs to be made easier.""SAP SuccessFactors functionality doesn't meet the expectation of our end users. There are other solutions that have better functionality, such as Workday, which is one of the top applications. Additionally, the solution could be easier to use.""I think there is room for improvement in user friendliness. In my experience, users are sometimes confused about how to use the solution.""The pricing of SAP is quite high.""It is not that user-friendly. It can be made more user-friendly.""User experience for this solution needs to be improved.""The SAP SuccessFactors integration with old versions can improve. We are using an older finance module but we are having migration issues.""SAP should also look into easily integrating with other applications or other tools. Technology has changed now, and it should be easier for any application to integrate with other apps. There needs to be more flexibility."
