We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a good product, and it is suitable for different client requirements. It has customization options and flexibility. You can customize a report or configure the workflow based on your requirements. Everything is there in the product, and you can customize it as per your requirement. Our clients found the automation of the payroll, leave attendance, and onboarding modules the most valuable. The Time and Attendance module is fully integrated with this solution and supports multiple data entry modes, such as barcode, biometric device, fingerprints, and face reading. Its core HR module includes features like movement, expense management, exit, and separation. The compensation and benefits module includes features like welfare, retirement, and superannuation. It also has analytical tools. You can create a real-time report based on your requirements. You can also publish that report in different formats, such as Excel, PDF, HTML, etc. It has a chatbot feature, which is using machine learning and natural language. You can ask questions about your leave balance, attendance, or things like that, and you will get an immediate reply from the chatbot. It also supports approval through email."
"The performance management system is really good."
"In general, the solution is very flexible and can be configured in multiple ways."
"I like the talent, recruitment, and learning features the most."
"HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources."
"The most valuable feature is the Personnel Administration."
"The technical support is quite good."
"SAP HCM can handle a large number of employees. We can easily process payrolls and check the arrangements, and the client can also check the performance of the employees. Additionally, it has some advanced features."
"They have some interesting features in the learning space."
"The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."
"It simplifies everything for human capital management, and all users can do self-enrollment for leaves and those kinds of things. The employee self-service feature is quite a powerful feature for me. You can install it on your mobile phone or iPad and do your employee service activity there."
"The mobile app and web page user experience could be more user friendly."
"The product itself sometimes feels inconsistent because it comes with bugs."
"They can improve the configuration time because it takes more time than other products to configure the system. It could be because they are managing this single product for all countries, but it would be good if they improve the implementation time because we need to implement the solutions within a timeline. They should provide some kind of auto-configuration so that the system can be configured and implemented within a certain timeline. Implementors should have a provision to configure the system in a short time. There should also be an option to move the setup or configuration from staging to production to save time. These types of automation should be there."
"The solution is rather expensive."
"The extensibility of the integration could be improved."
"I'm currently working for a state-owned government company, and we need to follow some standards and regulations. We also have a strategy to be followed. Sometimes the template and the format are not available in the SAP HCM, so we have to work around this limitation. The tax also sometimes changes in my country, and we have to redo everything to change the payroll calculations, benefits, and things like that. The talent management feature can be improved. It is currently very simple in SAP HCM. SAP is also very hard to integrate. In terms of monitoring, there are no monitoring tools, but as long as we take care of the disk capacity, there is no problem."
"I would like it to move more towards a single data space, a single data source. SAP as a platform relies on multiple data sources because traditionally, it's been bolted together by the acquisition of other products rather than a single database. That's why there are lots of points of failure and lots of required points of integration. They need a single integration point."
"SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client."
"It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA."
"This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."
"The speed of technical support can be improved."
"I am not aware of the price because I was working in the implementation team, but pricing is generally based on the requirement, modules, headcount, and country."
"Their customized solution is pretty expensive but much cheaper than its competitors."
"You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable."
"SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot."
"The solution is a little expensive and we are charged per user for the license. The solution can be paid monthly or annually."
"Licensing fees are paid yearly."
