We have an annual license for this solution, and the price depends on the number of users.

The pricing is not reasonable at all. That's why the product needs to be used by an enterprise, because the pricing is not okay for medium or small companies.

The cost of SAP HCM is high, the license should be reduced. SAP HCM has a lot of hidden costs.

The solution is a little expensive and we are charged per user for the license. The solution can be paid monthly or annually.

I cannot comment on pricing, as this is not within my purview.

I do not have very good knowledge of the pricing itself. It's not an aspect of the solution I directly deal with. However, it's my understanding that the cost is quite high.

SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable.

SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.

The cost may differ from region to region, but here in the Middle East, you pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees. SAP HCM is on-prem. SAP has another solution which is called SuccessFactors. It is on the cloud and by subscription only. So SAP has two solutions, the one on cloud is SuccessFactors and HCM on-prem. SAP is pushing for clients to go to SuccessFactors right now. The cloud solution may save some people money.

SAP costs a lot of money. In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue. I don't know how they come up with this pricing, but it is ridiculous. For example, if you want to have self-service for employees and managers then you need to pay for additional licenses.

When it comes to user experience, SuccessFactors is unquestionably superior, as it provides end users with a new experience and an advanced user interface. Additionally, the entire concept of SF is to simplify the process, giving life back to HR systems so that they can be more modern and flexible, and rely more on the heart of HR – the employee. On the other hand, while SF is technically less complex than SAP HCM, it also has significantly less capability, particularly when it comes to integration with other SAP modules. For example, while SAP's integration between the SAP Project system and the SAP HCM process is robust, SuccessFactors' integration is limited and still in its early stages. In all circumstances, SAP SF represents the future of HR, with a highly promising road map. I believe that if SAP continues to create more features, SF will have greater functionality than SAP HCM in 5 years.
