With over 4,000 customers and 40 million users, SuccessFactors is the most widely adopted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business software in the world. SuccessFactors is a full-suite Human Capital Management (HCM) solution that directly links an organisations’ people strategy to their business strategy – what we call ‘Business Execution’.
SuccessFactors is deployed in a modular approach and can be deployed in whatever order suits the organisation using it – ‘Start Anywhere, Go Anywhere’. This unique approach enables organisations to acquire what the HR solutions they need when they need them to increase overall HR and business effectiveness.
The SuccessFactors suite comprises:

SAP provides a complete suite of talent management solutions that bridge the gap between strategy and execution by optimising people productivity. It provides the tools to hire, reward and develop the right people with the right skills.
Recruiting Execution – Source, Hire and Onboard Better
Talent acquisition is a collaborative process involving recruiters, HR, hiring managers, and peers. But often, recruiting processes and functions are siloed from the rest of the business. SuccessFactors Recruiting Management is a comprehensive, collaborative tool that extends the process of recruiting wherever in the world or on the go, to help you hire the best talent and drive real business value.
- Get a consumer-grade experience: The best-in-class experience, on a desktop computer or a mobile device, makes using SuccessFactors easy for all types of users and effective for power users.
- Improve collaboration: Initiate and track team discussions about candidates with SuccessFactors Jam.
- Access anywhere, anytime: Support your mobile workforce and keep the hiring process moving with mobile access to key recruiting features across devices (smartphones and tablets).
- Utilize industry best practices: SuccessFactors is driven by customer best practices. This makes all of our customers better recruiters regardless of wherever they may be in their recruiting programs.
- Gain more insight: Answer questions about how your recruiting results align with your overall talent strategy.
- Integrated talent management suite: Combine with Workforce Planning and Workforce Analytics to understand your talent pipeline needs or with Onboarding to increase employee engagement and reduce time to contribution.
SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding gets new employees engaged faster, before their ‘start date’, streamlining the process and paperwork before day one, and then gets your new hire ramped up fast with our employee network and content-sharing solution.
- Engage new employees quickly – Connect new employees to a secure talent portal from outside the company firewall before they even start.
- Automate form delivery – Online forms available in Onboarding ensure that new employees don’t spend their first day filling out paperwork.
- Manage internal tasks – Send email notifications to IT, security, and anyone else who is part of the onboarding process to ‘kick start’ the process for making sure everything is in place on day one for the new employee.
- Schedule workflow – Keep processes on track using automatic task triggers and new-hire reminders.
Performance & Goal Management
Performance & Goals facilitates a meaningful, ongoing ‘feedback loop’ between managers and employees, turning the occasional performance review into an ongoing dialogue focused on improving employee performance. Managers spend less time on administrative tasks and more time coaching and giving valuable feedback, increasing employee morale and overall productivity. Performance Management will:
- Identify High Performers – Provides executives and managers with real time actionable insight into organisational performance.
- Increase Completion Rates – An easy-to-use user interface promotes fast user adoption, increasing performance review completion rates.
- Develop Talent – Writing assistants and configurable routing turn performance reviews into a valuable ongoing feedback loop between managers, subordinates, and peers.
- Improve Compliance – Audit trail of legally discoverable documents, evidence of an objective review process, and ‘Legal Scan’ capability help ensure compliance with local regulations.
Compensation Management streamlines and simplifies compensation planning, provides visibility and insight for total compensation management, and uniquely enables a perform-and-reward culture.
Learning Management is closely coupled with Performance & Goals and Career Development & Succession Planning. This solution is a core part of the talent management suite and it provides comprehensive learning solutions that uniquely combine formal and informal practices. Learning activities can be tracked easily in the learning plan. Compliance and qualification gaps are highlighted in a pie chart and workflow alerts when qualifications, certificates and/or licences expire and need to be renewed. Central learning teams can push learning activities directly to employees.
Career Development & Succession Planning
Succession Planning provides the visibility you need to identify and anticipate the talent gaps in the organisation as well as provide the insight required to help bridge perceived gaps. With support for individual, role, and position succession models, Succession Planning will help to:
- Know your Talent – Collect valuable information about your employees that provides insight about their backgrounds, experience, expertise, performance, and career aspirations.
- Identify Talent Gaps – Easily identify current and potential talent gaps in your organisational structure. Assess the impact of loss to your business and gain visibility to your bench strength.
- Broaden the Nomination Pool – Expand your talent search beyond your immediate sphere by leveraging robust nomination capabilities and an organisation-wide talent search engine.
- Promote the Right Talent – Identify the right candidates to fill leadership gaps quickly and objectively using competency-based search capabilities and side-by-side comparisons of top candidates.

SuccessFactors solutions are maximised for use with mobile devices, whether that be a phone or tablet device.
