Let’s face it: change is hard – especially when it comes to something as important and complex as the technology that powers your recruiting strategy and who you ultimately hire. Over the years, SAP SuccessFactors has worked with thousands of companies who are in some state of recruiting technology transition, either looking for greater scale and functionality, making a move due to shifts with their current provider, or working to create better alignment with their overall talent management strategy.

Based on our experiences, here are seven primary reasons companies choose SAP SuccessFactors as their strategic recruiting technology partner.

  1. Unparalleled depth and breadth

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting encompasses all aspects of recruiting – including applicant tracking, sourcing, and candidate engagement – in a single solution. Easy to implement and maintain, our technology integrates workflows, improves efficiency, and delivers a consistent candidate experience. Today, customers all around the world leverage SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting to support a variety of strategies, including mass hiring, passive nurturing, virtual recruiting, event recruiting, diversity hiring, etc.

  1. Built to scale and adapt

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting customers consistently point to flexibility as one of the solution’s greatest strengths. While our technology was designed around core needs of various user personas, we know that one size does not fit all – and that every business changes over time. Our scalability enables us to support some of the largest, most complex global organizations. At the same time, our solution also supports the specific needs of niche and growing companies, as evidenced by the 40% of our customer base that falls within the small-to-midsize space.

  1. Satisfied customers and strong ROI

Having thousands of customers is one thing. But we at SAP SuccessFactors pride ourselves on having thousands of happy customers who are willing to partner and share their continued success. Based on a recent report by SAP SuccessFactors, The Value of Human Experience Management Technology, our SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting and SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding customers report, on average, a…

  • 256% increase in the number of interested candidates

  • 48% reduction in time required to fill positions

  • 50% increase in the number of completed applications

  • 77% decrease in the time applicants spent submitting applications

  • 121% less time to identify and nominate talent

  • 74% decrease in onboarding time

  • 15% reduction in employee turnover

  • 15% cost savings from recruiting through internal hires

  1. Implement your way, extend at your own pace

While most companies agree an end-to-end talent management approach is preferred over siloed modules and data, circumstances do not always align to make this a near-term reality. Budgets, resources, varying ownership, acquired technologies, existing and expiring contracts – they all impact the what, when, and how of your talent management strategy. Unlike other solutions, SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting can be deployed as a stand-alone solution, or deployed with any or all SAP SuccessFactors talent management solutions. You don’t have to implement Core HR first and you’re not required to purchase the full talent management suite. You have the flexibility to start with recruiting, coupled with the assurance that when you’re ready, you can roll it into your broader talent management strategy.

  1. Deep commitment to Human Experience Management (HXM)

As we work with companies on their technology evaluations, it’s clear to see the value associated with the time and resources that SAP SuccessFactors has dedicated to really understanding and creating experiences to address the specific needs in the HR space. While technologies are evolving at lightning speed, it’s important to recognize the foundational expertise and experience that drives success for SAP SuccessFactors and our customers. We know cloud-based, intelligent technologies but just as importantly, we know HR, our users, and what makes a great experience for the candidate, new hire, recruiter, hiring manager, and admin. This is what drives strong adoption and unmatched business outcomes.

  1. Collaborative, continuous innovation

Our team of experts, spanning product management, engineering, and adoption advisement bring an unprecedented level of recruiting and HR expertise to the table. That – combined with feedback from thousands of customers, millions of users, and more than 80 recruiting app partners – gives us access to one of the largest recruiting sounding boards in the market. Plus, our customers actively share feedback and engage in conversation, both with our teams and directly with their peers. This ongoing dialogue helps influence our product road map and our partner app ecosystem.

  1. Comprehensive Intelligent Enterprise Framework

While recruiting may be the primary focus of your evaluation, your organization’s digital transformation journey is bigger than one solution. The SAP Intelligent Enterprise Framework offers an end-to-end business architecture that helps digitalize and streamline processes far beyond HR. Many companies heavily weigh the value of their existing and expanding SAP footprint, given the opportunity to further extend the end-to-end processes and business impacts.
