The Pros and Cons of Using SAP SuccessFactors
There are many reasons to consider implementing the SAP SuccessFactors application in your organization, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. In this SAP SuccessFactors review, we’ll take an objective look at the pros and cons of using the solution so you can determine if it will benefit your team and organization overall or not. This way, you won’t have any regrets if you implement it and find out it’s not right for you.
What is SAP SuccessFactors
SAP’s SuccessFactors cloud-based software suite covers every stage of the employee life cycle with apps for recruiting, onboarding, performance management, rewards and recognition, training & development, and time & attendance. It is designed to empower organizations to attract and retain the best employees while maximizing productivity. The pricing model is a monthly subscription fee based on the number of users in your organization. The features offered by this software include HR Self-Service Portal (HRSSP), Recruiting App, Onboarding App, Performance Management App, Employee Central App (EMCC), MySuccessFactors App (MSF), Rewards and Recognition App, Training and Development Center (TDC) App and Time & Attendance Center (TAC) app.
What Are the Benefits
Paying your employees is a significant portion of running a business, but payroll can be expensive. Payroll outsourcing can help reduce costs by taking care of all the things that go into payroll management (from computing taxes to sending out paychecks). As an added bonus, managing your payroll through an outsourcing company also makes it easier to comply with federal and state laws. That’s because these companies have systems in place to make sure they stay compliant with regulations. These include keeping up-to-date on tax rates and withholding requirements, as well as changing rules for such things as overtime, wage minimums, and unemployment insurance. The bottom line is: Outsourcing payroll means you don’t have to worry about those things!
What Are the Drawbacks
A major drawback to SAP SuccessFactors is that the system is a major change for most companies’ software needs, which can be costly. There are also some difficulties with user adoption, which may result in a longer than average time to go live. The complexity of the system may also cause some employees to disengage as they struggle with new processes. Some people also find that it’s too easy for one person to make changes or updates on their own without input from others. In addition, there have been reported issues with accessibility due to the text being too small on mobile devices.
How Do I Get Started
The first step is signing up for a trial or purchasing a plan. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have to install the system on your company computer. You’ll then want to install the Mobile App which can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. There are also Success Management Packages available for specific industries such as human resources, finance, sales, marketing, etc.
