SAP Empowers Partners with SAP SuccessFactors Packaged Offerings

WALLDORF, Germany SAP SE  has announced the availability of the new partner-led SAP SuccessFactors Packaged Solution, which offers simple, affordable and scalable implementation options to mid-market customers. More than 30 SAP partners across EMEA and MEE already have SAP-qualified packaged solutions, opening the door to deliver faster time-to-value to mid-market customers.

SAP empowers SAP partners to transform SuccessFactors into a pre-configured solution with customized, wraparound services and commercial offerings that meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises. The packaged solution encompasses all the best-practice processes and services to help meet customer needs today and that are scalable to evolve with them, delivering value as the company evolves. By offering packaged solutions, partners create a repeatable and predictable approach with consistent delivery standards.

“We wanted to find a way to enable more SMEs to benefit from feature-rich, SAP HCM solutions,” said Cathy Daum, Senior Vice President – Global Channels & General Business, SAP EMEA. “They too need to develop and grow their business and support their talent pool. Developing the SAP Partner Packaged Solution gives our partners the freedom they need to not only build unique pre-packaged solutions but also to create finance options and implementation programs that are right for the SME market.”

Rinse Tamsma, Senior Vice President – Global Channels & General Business, SAP MEE said: “The value delivered to the customers is still based on the leading SAP SuccessFactors software solution, it includes the templates, technology and preconfigured settings. The difference is in the speed of implementation and the cost effectiveness of the whole project. It’s a win-win for our partners and our customers.”

Supporting Partners for Success

“In creating this packaged solution, we’ve seen the added benefit of opening up our Cloud opportunity, giving SME customers access to a Cloud solution in a simple-to-implement and risk-adverse way. This has been instrumental in helping us, demonstrating SAP is committed to supporting SME customers with state-of-the-art SuccessFactors solutions.” said Lorenz Hendrickx, Partner at Flexso.
