The HCM Cloud

sf-img1

As an early global partner with SuccessFactors, Exaserv is one of the few SAP partners that is certified to implement SuccessFactors BizX™ software. We pair our extensive SAP HCM implementation experience with years of in house add-on software development, making Exaserv an ideal partner to implement SuccessFactors in any organization. In a world where cloud and hybrid cloud solutions are quickly becoming a standard part of enterprise IT solutions, Exaserv and our highly trained consultants are uniquely positioned to help lead clients through that transition.

The HR function is moving beyond automating processes, reducing costs, and compliance — to drive people decisions that grow the business. However, the majority of today’s HRIS solutions serve merely as filing cabinets for record keeping with no business impact. Silo’d from talent, they prevent companies from making workforce decisions based on a 360-degree view of the employee. They also feature primitive analytics that provide minimal insights into the workforce and no support for workforce planning.

Another shift is the employee demographic. More technology-savvy people — those who have grown up using collaborative, user-friendly, and graphic technology — are now entering the workforce. However, today’s Core HR systems are made for super-users and specialists.  Using these systems requires extensive training and results in low adoption. Finally, current onpremise Core HR solutions are expensive to implement and maintain, deliver little innovation, and are difficult to upgrade.  A New Approach to Core HR — SuccessFactors Employee Central is the industry’s only Core HR solution that not only provides comprehensive, integrated Core HR capabilities — it is specifically designed for business execution.

Integrates with Talent

Through seamless integration with talent, Employee Central provides the ability to make more impactful workforce decisions. By using complete employee profile, talent, and core HR information, companies are able to make more well-informed people decisions — setting goals aligned with employee strengths and interests, promotion, and  development driven by a complete view of the employee, and effective onboarding, among others.

Includes Actionable Analytics

With all workforce data in one place and support for financial and operational data from external systems, Employee Central helps HR measure the workforce business results link, and make decisions that impact financials. Based on 30 years of expertise, it provides simple reporting tools, 2000+ built-in metrics, benchmarks for any company, and support for trending and drilled down analyses.

Supports Collaboration around Business Goals

Employee Central enables employees to leverage their talent, Core HR, and personal profile data to collaborate on business goals. It provides intuitive tools to form groups, network, and share knowledge around common goals, interests, projects, work experience, locations, and much more.

Provides Enterprise-Grade Core HR functionality

Employee Central is an enterprise-grade Core HR solution driven by effective dated entities. It provides support for any combination of business units, geos, or cost centers to model and manage any workforce. It enables HR to quickly implement any job structure without code, spreadsheets, or offline processes. It also supports any pay structure enabling companies to vary pay by geo, job class, grade, or legal entities. Employee Central facilitates reporting and industry compliance by making sure all user actions are saved and easily accessible through point-intime reporting and easy audit trail reports.

Designed for Everyone

Like all of SuccessFactors’ offerings, Employee Central is built for its 10 million users in the cloud. This approach results in a radically simple user experience for every role in the organization. Specific to core HR transactions, it reduces errors in self-service and boosts adoption through innovations such as built-in wizards, smart business rules, org charts, inline comments, audit history, and flexible workflows.

Provides Seamless Integration

SuccessFactors handles the integration between Employee Central and any system including payroll, benefits, ERP, and time management solutions. Its cloud-based integration platform enables enterprise-class, fast, and cost-effective integration. Also, SuccessFactors’ partnership with leading payroll providers further accelerates integration through the use of pre-built connectors.

Runs in the Cloud

Employee Central is a pure SaaS-based solution with a much lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than on-premise core HR solutions — customers have seen up to 3X lower TCO over five years. Also, it easily scales as business needs expand while delivering constant innovation without disruption.

To succeed, organizations need a workforce that clearly understands the organization’s strategic objectives and can quickly adjust course as business needs evolve.

A powerful Performance & Goals solution enables managers to align employee activities with organizational strategy and monitor performance – providing subordinates with continuous, meaningful feedback and coaching.

Part of SuccessFactors BizX Suite, SuccessFactors Performance & Goals is the leading Employee Performance Management solution (Gartner, 2011 Magic Quadrant for Employee Performance Management Software) – providing an intuitive user experience and innovative capabilities such as Team Rater, Calibration, Legal Check, Goal Library, and Assistants for Writing and Coaching.

Employee compensation is the largest expense for most companies yet, compensation planning that relies on e-mail and spreadsheets is error prone, unsecured, and unproductive.

SuccessFactors is transforming how the workforce learns, by combining formal, informal, social, and extended learning together with innovative content management, analytics, and mobile capabilities. The result is learning that drives business execution and delivers better business results.

As the recognized leader in Learning and Talent Management (Gartner, 2013 Magic Quadrant for Talent), SuccessFactors Learning helps learning professionals reduce risk and ensure compliance, improve employee performance, and better enable external audiences. Unlike other solutions, SuccessFactors Learning leverages social, mobile, and analytic capabilities along with a powerful, elegant user experience that increases learning adoption and results.  SuccessFactors Learning can also be leveraged as part of SuccessFactors unified HCM Suite and Talent Solutions.  This allows SuccessFactors Learning to uniquely and powerfully address any type of learning requirement – from formal, compliance driven training to social /informal communities, and even external training environments – all from one seamless cloud-based solution.

Learning Analytics

What’s the real impact of your learning programs? Beyond course completions, learning must prove results that matter to the business – whether its through the Kirkpatrick Levels of Corporate Training Evaluation, or other internally assigned metrics, learning administrators must be able to answer questions such as:

  • What’s the performance of employees in learning programs versus those not enrolled?
  • Is there a correlation between the % of all learning costs and firm profitability?

Beyond basic reporting, SuccessFactors Learning provides the insight needed to drive the business forward.

Learning Management System (LMS)

A LMS allows your organization to deploy a comprehensive learning strategy that includes instructor led training (ILT), eLearning, virtual learning, exams, certifications, and extended learning. The LMS allows you to create courses and curriculum based on performance goals, career and succession plans, organizational development and compliance objectives, or for individual, personal development. Plus, it ensures you have records, reports and insight to meet government and industry-specific regulatory compliance needs. With features such as automated assignment profiles, and multi-part e-signature support, SuccessFactors provides the most powerful, flexible LMS available.

Social Learning

Adding Social and Informal learning to formal learning creates comprehensive blended learning that accelerates employee and business performance. With SuccessFactors Social Learning you can easily find social communities and content relevant content thru a global learning search, collaborate with subject matter experts, and do it all on your mobile device. Plus, employees can instantly, easily capture and share information across social learning communities.  Powered by SAP Jam, SuccessFactors delivers informal and social learning that helps accelerate engagement and results.

Most companies struggle with managing their learning content assets. iContent uniquely provides ‘Content as a Service’ (CaaS) which removes the burden of online content management, reduces costs, increases training efficiency, and greatly improves the user experience. By reducing the overhead and infrastructure administration, organizations realize substantial cost savings and ensure faster, more reliable content delivery. Much more than content hosting, iContent provides bandwidth & delivery (via Akamai), management, plus security and updates for all of your e-learning. iContent enables you to focus on what matters the quality and effectiveness of your training.

  • Create uniquely branded learning sites
  • Provide learning catalog assignments for different audiences

Having the right people in the right place to effectively execute on strategy is a perpetual challenge. In any labor market or economy, the talent gap can be severe inside an organization simply because workers are not always in the roles where they can add the most value. Or the unexpected departure of an executive or key employee can leave a profound talent gap that is difficult to fill. The cost to businesses is real and felt in the form of foregone opportunities resulting from leadership gaps, high replacement costs, and failure of companies to manage and align proper talent pools, especially for senior and critical positions.

  • How prepared is your organization to ensure the development and readiness of your employees to execute on your business strategies?
  • What would be the impact to your organization’s business performance if one or more of your key players suddenly walked out the door?
  • Would your organization be properly aligned to promote talent seamlessly from within, without disrupting necessary daily business?
  • Can your company afford to trade quality of business execution for time to talent search?

 Ensure you have the right people in the right place for Business Execution.

SuccessFactors Succession and Development gives your organization the visibility it needs to identify and anticipate the talent gaps in your organization as well as provide the insight required to help you bridge those gaps.  With support for individual, role, and position succession models and development plans, SuccessFactors Succession and Development helps you:

  • Know your Talent – Collect valuable information about your employees that provides insight about their backgrounds, experience, expertise, performance, and career aspirations.
