About SAP SuccessFactors

SAP Human Capital Management, based in Walldorf, Germany, has been an industry leader in workforce management software for more than 40 years. Their company, SuccessFactors, builds a popular HCM Suite that has drawn more than 3,900 clients across more than 60 industries. This wide client base comes to SAP because the company is known for innovation. SAP, the parent company, produces one of the most popular HR software suites, and is celebrated by more than 250,000 business clients across the world.

With 500 employees and annual revenues in excess of $1 billion, Kawasaki Motors Corp. has many human resources headaches to deal with. By implementing SuccessFactors and moving many of these processes online, the director of human resources estimates that his department has reduced the manual labor by two full-time employees’ worth. The company also relies on the best practices built into SuccessFactors to ensure they are in compliance with legislation and to maintain high employment standards. “We wouldn’t be a leader in our market today if we hadn’t used SuccessFactors to align our employees with corporate objectives.”

The SuccessFactors HCM Suite starts with recruiting software. Use it to track recruitment strategies and to find out which resources have been providing the most talented applicants. Move into the talent management software features to discover how long it takes for new hires in your organization to reach their full productivity. Companies use this information to better formulate training strategies, so their employees can hit the ground running. Increase efficiency by monitoring workforce analytics and run reports that provide workforce planning insight. From hire to retire, SuccessFactors HCM offers end-to-end integrated business solutions.

Heather N.


Helpful performance tracking tool, but hard to gain adoption

Ease of Use
4 Reviewed on December 5, 2014

What do you like best about this product?

Our company only uses the performance management function of SuccessFactors. The best part is having a centralized location to input goals, track performance, and create 360 degree reviews.

What could be improved about this product?

The user interface is hard to navigate and make setting up and tracking goals a chore rather than simple. While designed to simplify goal-setting, many of the walk-through screens can get tricky and we have seen employees feel unmotivated to complete the set-up.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

Wondering if employees would use it regularly and if that would be worth the cost of the solution.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

As our company grows, we wanted to have one centralized location to keep performance records. We have seen more accurate goals and tracking because of using this tool.

How likely would you be to recommend this software to a friend or colleague?
