Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It has good navigation, and it is user friendly and secure. Every three months, there is an upgrade, and it has new features.""The most valuable feature is the support for mobile devices.""The solution has good integration with other applications.""The core part and the talent management part are most valuable.""Offers a good balanced scorecard capability.""We have 35,000 employees in our organization, so we consider the solution to be scalable.""I think that it's stable. I don't believe that there are any issues.""We have not had any issues with the stability of this solution."

"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 initial setup was pretty simple.""I think it's perfect that every requirement has flexibility in how it is handled, and that there are several workarounds for any problem we are looking to solve. Each problem has multiple solutions, so it gives us a lot of flexibility in terms of processes.""Overall, it's excellent performance management.""It has improved my organization by enabling us to efficiently manage our personnel.""It has a global database, and it is globally accessible. By using this solution, we have moved away from paper, which is a big step for us.""The performance of the solution is very good.""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."

Cons
"The interface could be more user friendly.""It is a cloud solution, so we cannot do much customization. However, if you have a past license, you can do the customization, but unfortunately, we don't have a past license. If we had that, we would have been 100% happy.""Cloud learning can be improved.""The product needs to keep improving the integration tools and the tools to load the data - that whole mechanism - in order to allow for flexibility in the configuration.""The absence management can use some improvement. Due to all the flexible working, the part with work schedules could be a little bit more flexible.""There should be more digital assistance included, like chatbots.""From the feedback that I get, the functional side of the payroll could be improved.""I was part of a program I went to where I had a discussion on the latest innovation of the Oracle HCM. I think some of the newer technology innovations, such as gamification and consumerization are areas that could be improved."

"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.""It is not that user-friendly. It can be made more user-friendly.""The solution needs more localization, especially for the Middle East and Russia.""The pricing of SAP is quite high.""Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.""I think there is room for improvement in user friendliness. In my experience, users are sometimes confused about how to use the solution.""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.""They should be more user friendly and give us more tools to make it more flexible."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""The solution is expensive.""Oracle HCM offers many features at a low price.""On average, it's not a cheap solution.""There is a license required for the use of this solution and we are on an annual license.""It has a licensing cost. It has a cloud-based subscription, which is quite cheap.""The contract for one of them will be extended for three years and for another one for two years. One of them is paying monthly, and another one is paying per quarter. I don't know about the third one. So, it differs.""I cannot comment on the cost, as this is handled by a different team."

"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.""It could be cheaper.""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."
