Three SAP SuccessFactors Solutions Added to SAP’s Growing Portfolio of Digitally Transactable Offerings


I am pleased to share that three SAP SuccessFactors solutions are now available for new customers to purchase online via SAP’s digital channels: SAP SuccessFactors Performance and Goals, SAP SuccessFactors Succession and Development, and SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting.

With their availability at www.successfactors.com and SAP Store, we are further broadening SAP’s ever-growing portfolio of digitally-transactable offerings, making it easier than ever for our customers to discover, try, and buy SAP solutions online – in just a few simple clicks.

We have been digitally selling seven packaged services that extend SAP SuccessFactors solutions since 2017, with this product availability now offering three new key solutions for digital purchase at a low price per month, per user. This is another step along our journey to continue simplifying the buying experience for customers, bringing them what they want, when they want it, wherever they are.

Bringing More to SAP Customers, Together with Our Partners, Digitally

The addition of these solutions to SAP’s digital channels continues to advance the customer experience, making even more SAP offerings available to customers for online purchase. To help ensure that new customers purchasing these solutions have the implementation support needed, they can find and buy services from partners Renew HR, Presence of IT, and Neeyamo at SAP App Center. The services they provide focus on simplifying, streamlining, and speeding up a customer’s ability to purchase and quickly use SAP SuccessFactors services digitally, delivering a fully no-touch experience for transacting with SAP online.

Further enhancing customer experience as well as transparency and value, customers can discover, try, and buy more than 70 partner extensions on the SAP App Center that complement and further extend solutions from trusted SAP partners.

Businesses Achieve Success with Key SuccessFactors Features and Benefits

Available with the latest release of these three solutions is the digital “Explore Now” capability, which allows customers to view, explore various processes, and experience the products like never before — at their own pace, anytime, anywhere. These three solutions available to new customers to buy online offer the following features and benefits:

  • SAP SuccessFactors Performance and Goals helps organizations effectively manage employee performance, sustaining a competitive advantage through the development of an all-in workforce via recognition, goal alignment, and performance improvement. Users can drive continuous performance improvement, objectively identify top performers, and engage with a flexible solution designed to meet unique needs.
  • SAP SuccessFactors Succession and Development helps ensure a strong talent pipeline is always in place by continuously identifying, nominating, developing, and promoting current and future business leaders. With a comprehensive approach that takes customers beyond simply automating a standalone process, this solution also boosts employee engagement and fosters scalable talent development.
  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting helps organizations source, engage, and hire the world’s best talent with line-of-site analytics to provide intelligence and guidance along the entire process. Candidates can be sourced from more than 4,000 job boards, social media platforms and schools/universities across more than 80 countries.

Simplified Approach to Digital Purchases

Traditional sales processes can take quite some time before a purchase is finalized, and sometimes weeks before the software is delivered to the customer for use. To streamline this and cut down on time from discovery to use, the no-touch selling model lets SAP customers buy offerings directly and immediately online via www.successfactors.com and SAP Store.

For example, if a customer chooses to purchase an implementation package from one of our partners — Renew HR, Presence of IT, or Neeyamo — the self-service option for our customers to purchase can take as little as 15 minutes. This puts the reins back in the customer’s hands to connect them faster and more easily with the partner apps and solutions that will best complement and extend SAP offerings.

Our long-term goal is to continue providing a digital channel where SAP customers can discover, try, and buy solutions — from SAP and our partner ecosystem — anywhere, anytime. Only two clicks are required to reach buyable SAP offerings as well as partner solutions and apps on www.successfactors.com and SAP Store, where customers also have access to clear product descriptions aided by customer testimonials.

With the new Explore Now capability and availability of SAP SuccessFactors Performance and Goals, SAP SuccessFactors Succession and Development, and SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, our customers can explore and discover key details of the solutions, as well as access online and enterprise prices for initial purchases of these offerings.

Let’s say a customer wants to try out a recruiting package from one of our implementation partners to optimize the recruitment and candidate selection process. With only two clicks, customers have access to the clear features and benefits offered, with the system ready in one day. The same digital purchasing capabilities are available across all partner offerings, which offer a rapid implementation approach to streamline succession planning and career development processes.

SAP has long been focused on being a customer-first organization that simplifies the buying experience, increases value to the customer, promotes transparency along the buyer journey, and provides the best service for every individual, at scale. As we continue on our own digital transformation journey, we will keep innovating and refining the digital buying experience for our customers.

We are dedicated to expanding our digital offerings, working closely with our partners, who serve as an integrated extension of SAP, to bring customers what they want, when they want it.
