SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced it surpassed 3,000 SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central solution customers, taking just a little over a year to add 1,000 new clients worldwide. SAP continues to lead the industry by offering modern solutions that help organizations transform digitally by putting people at the heart of the Intelligent Enterprise.

The milestone was achieved after more than 250 new clients chose SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central in the fourth quarter of 2018, including Kongsberg Automotive, Yahoo Japan and Mahindra & Mahindra. With more than 3,000 customers within nine years since its launch, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is one of the fastest-growing core HR solutions in the market.

As businesses expand, workforces diversify, and the impact of data privacy grows. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central helps organizations move from a transaction-oriented system to a system of engagement for the entire, global workforce.

The SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central solution provides unmatched support for today’s global workforce with localizations in 94 countries and availability in 42 languages. Plus, with a sustained focus on people’s experience at work, the solution simplifies how people interact around HR-related information, including processes for global benefits, time and attendance management, and payroll. It also provides organizational management for workforce planning and comprehensive talent management.

Companies of all sizes across industries and geographies successfully implemented SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central in 2018, including Cintas, EDF Energy, Flowers Foods, Teleflex and Orica. SAP itself was the first large enterprise to run SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central on the SAP HANA business data platform.

“At Cintas, we take the employee experience seriously and recognize that keeping our employees engaged and happy is the key to loyal customers,” said Jennifer Mueller, vice president of Human Resources at Cintas. “With this in mind, we wanted a cloud-based solution that is scalable across the entire business to provide greater levels of self-service, reduce time spent on transactional activities and streamline business processes. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central provides this for our managers and employee-partners.”

“We knew we needed to simplify and standardize our HR processes to remain efficient, and it was important to find a flexible, cloud-based solution that could truly engage our entire workforce,” said Ian Hammond, Future HR Projects director at EDF Energy. “With SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, we now have just one source of people data across the entire company. We’ve made it easier to complete HR tasks, creating more time for people to focus on their actual roles.”

“To compete and excel in today’s business environment, a consumer-grade employee experience powered by data-driven insights is absolutely critical,” said SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb. “Every organization’s success begins and ends with its people, which means people must be at the center of every decision. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central does just that. I’m proud to say over 3,000 leading companies around the world have chosen SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central because they understand that an engaged, happy workforce leads to better results — for both business success and individual employee growth.”
