SuccessFactors Makes Global Easy for All HR Processes

CHICAGO, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HR Technology Conference & Expo 2012 -- SuccessFactors, an SAP company and leader in cloud-based business execution software, announced today new globalization and localization features, deep integration with Benefitfocus and WorkForce Software, and a new visual experience in Employee Central – the foundation of the Business Execution (BizX) Suite. SAP's leading global business expertise combined with SuccessFactors' award-winning Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions deliver advanced offerings that empower and grow the workforce.


Leveraging the extensive network of SAP global process experts and its proven experience in delivering cloud applications, SuccessFactors has gone beyond high-level globalization to deliver a "glocalized" core HR cloud solution.  With this solution, customers can access and manage one global system of record, fine-tuned to meet local needs.

SuccessFactors has changed the face of Human Capital Management (HCM) with a new visual experience and mobile "home" page that allows employees to drag and drop colorful, mini-application tiles to design their own experience. Watch the video here:

"SuccessFactors offers an unprecedented set of beautiful cloud applications that are mobile, "glocal," and easy to use, invigorating today's workforce," said Dmitri Krakovsky, vice president of product management, SuccessFactors. "Customers now have an efficient end-to-end solution, ultimately saving time and resources while helping people love work again."

The new features enrich SuccessFactors' holistic approach to HCM and deliver a complete and robust global system. Enhancements include:

  • Glocalization - Three Levels of the SAP Global Process.
    Translation – all applications, content and documentation are delivered in local languages for more than 149 countries.
    Globalization – the system is fine-tuned to operate globally with multi-language, currency, time-zone and date/calendar support.
    Localization – available for the first time in 10 countries – local business practices, country requirements and statutory reporting are now all captured and accounted for within the system. Employee Central will be localized to additional countries in 2013.
  • Benefits and Time & Attendance - Pre-built Integration with Industry-Leading Solutions. Strategic partnerships expand the reach and richness of what Employee Central can deliver via a single integrated solution with Benefitfocus for benefits administration, and WorkForce Software for workforce management. Eliminating the need for multiple logins, these integrations bring a new level of agility to HR management by making Employee Central the one destination for access to all HR, employment, and benefits information. 
  • SAP Cloud Payroll - New Level of Integration. Now, all manager and employee-related payroll services and transactions can be handled from within Employee Central with the click of a mouse, enabling a comprehensive view of your workforce.
  • New Face of HCM – A new user interface in Employee Central and across the BizX Suite allows employees to design their own homepage by selecting and arranging mini-application tiles. Unlike traditional approaches to HCM, Employee Central's friendly interface drives collaboration, delivers powerful insight and enables action from a single page that is accessible on any device.

SuccessFactors' Employee Central is a global system of record that combines employee talent, profile and core HR information for every worker in an organization. It includes powerful analytics and social collaboration capabilities that enable employees to network and share knowledge around common projects, and across functions or locations.
