There are many different approaches to implementing Enterprise Workforce Management software for your organization. It’s the same for SAP SuccessFactors modules. You might already be using some modules or you might want to prioritize a few modules over others. Whichever approach you take, deployment doesn’t have to stretch for months or even years.
In this blog, we’ll provide you with our best approach that has helped with fast deployment for many of our clients. Let’s get started with the basics first.
Here are all the different modules you can get with SAP SuccessFactors’s cloud based HR software:
It is a cloud HR system (HRIS) that helps you automate HR processes, build meaningful relationships with employees, and manage compliance.
An end-to-end recruiting solution that helps you attract, engage, and select top candidates for your organization.
Make onboarding a strategic and effective process by empowering new hires and increasing job satisfaction, productivity, and retention.
Provide a complete Learning Management System that helps you develop, manage, and deploy instructor-led, formal, and social online training initiatives.
Create meaningful individual goals for everyone in the organization and tie them to performance by streamlining the performance appraisal process.
Pay your employees based on performance or other key factors. Retain top talent and encourage productivity across the organization with effective compensation management.
Encourage teamwork and employee productivity by offering means to communicate and collaborate with a private social network for your organization.
Assure readiness of employee talent at all levels and plan for learning activities by arming your workforce for current and future needs.
Our 6-step implementation methodology makes sure that you can deploy SAP SuccessFactors modules in just 8-12 weeks. It also provides you with a set of tools, processes, and templates that you can make use of. Let’s delve into it.
This stage will last approximately three weeks. The deployment project will kick off and you’ll start by assigning roles. For example, the managers will take care of which modules need to be deployed first. Then the team leads will step in and be responsible for creating plans on how to train and educate their team on relevant modules. This stage will essentially be the planning stage and the end result will be a blueprint that ensures everyone is on the same page and knows what they’re supposed to do for the course of the next few weeks.
During the 4th week, TalenTeam will help you with the detailed demonstration of configured applications. This will be done through Conference Room Pilot (CRP). It is a process that allows end-users to have hands-on experience before implementing the new system. This allows your organization to test out the different SAP SuccessFactors modules and understand if there are any additional features or functionalities you’ll require. During this stage, you can bring on board all the relevant managers that will be in charge of deployment so that they can suggest or ask relevant questions and get everything resolved.
You don’t want your team to be juggling too many apps or software. Instead of having information in different platforms, opt for SAP SuccessFactors integration and migrate your old data to these new SAP SuccessFactors modules and systems. This stage will take approximately two weeks or less depending on the amount of data you’ll need to transfer. You can even break down this phase into different stages so that employees can find the data they need and the current work is not hampered.
The tools and modules will only work great if everyone knows how to use them and take advantage of all the different features SAP has on offer. That’s why in the coming week, you’ll get access to job aids and other resources along with face-to-face admin training to help educate everyone in the organization about the working of SAP SuccessFactors modules.
In the 8th week, the teams will spend time validating the application. This would involve rounds of testing. The teams will also get to know the various modules better and figure out if there’s anything missing or if they require additional information. This stage of the process can even get completed quicker if the rounds of testing get done faster.
As the testing rounds come to an end and everyone knows the modules thoroughly, the next two weeks revolve around production build and launch. The data finally gets migrated and the launch takes place. This may happen in several stages if the organization decides to deploy different modules at different times.
