The SuccessFactors Employee Central has been augmented with global payroll capabilities, localized personal and employment information (such as national ID verification, payment information, dependents, disability information, and global name formatting) for 51 countries, and advanced reporting (19 international reports, 23 country specific reports, reports that rely on any type of time-dependent data). HR capabilities have also been improved with the reorganization planning (available on iPad), allowing users to simulate and measure potential changes before applying them to the live system.

SAP also presented the key differentiators for its newly upgraded SuccessFactors Onboarding Solution. Hiring managers can benefit from  step-by-step guidance when creating onboarding programs for new employees and follow the process on a dashboard. Onboarding is also supported by improved socialization functionality through integration with SAP Jam.

The upgrade for SuccessFactors Learning focuses on the learning experience. Courses can be better visualized through content tiles that show thumbnail images and course descriptions. The solution includes the capability to have a catalog search with recommendations. From an administrative perspective, items can be viewed by date, priority, or relevance.

SAP also announced additional features for SuccessFactors BizX—a cloud-based talent management, workforce analytics and planning, and core HR suite (that is, a redesigned mobile app for the iPad and improved employee referral capabilities).
