"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 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.""This solution has always been stable for me.""This solution offers good flexibility and configurability. It can handle different types of performance management.""The initial setup was pretty simple.""In terms of user experience, it is quite good.""The overall functionality of the solution is very good.""Overall, it's excellent performance management."

Cons
"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.""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.""I think they should have a larger data center in China, which would significantly increase the access speed from my current workspace.""The solutions could improve by having better performance. There are times when we have experienced some delays. The reports could be quicker.""There should be more digital assistance included, like chatbots.""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.""It would be very nice if we were able to roll back transactions from data that was loaded with the data loader."

"SuccessFactors could be improved by making it usable on mobile and making its features less rigid.""The user experience could be simplified.""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.""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.""The data management part can be improved in terms of how you can manage data from the HR admin's or HR team's perspective. It has some limitations in the reporting part in terms of how you can update the data and fetch the data. SAP HCM comparatively has a lot of capabilities in terms of backup loads, data management, data changes, etc. You can do these things easily, which is not the case with SAP SuccessFactors. Data management should be simplified in SAP SuccessFactors in terms of accessing the data, reporting, and then manipulating the data.""User experience for this solution needs to be improved.""They should be more user friendly and give us more tools to make it more flexible.""The solution needs more localization, especially for the Middle East and Russia."
