Base Model Approach for SAP SuccessFactors: Expedite SuccessFactors Implementation With A Preconfigured Solution

The Innovation Behind Base Model Approach for SAP SuccessFactors
After several clients mentioned the challenges associated with getting the most out of their SAP SuccessFactors solution with limited in-house resources, the idea of the Base Model Approach was developed.  Instead of simply asking our clients what they have in mind and risk building a cluttered system with unnecessary customizations, our  SAP SuccessFactors subject matter experts, developed a preconfigured SAP SuccessFactors solution that provides a proven starting point, and allows you to make qualified decisions based on an existing setup with minimal maintenance.

Common project challenges that can be mitigated by Base Model Approach:

  • Extreme complexity in identifying requirements
  • Long implementation times with high cost as a result
  • High risk that end users do not adopt the solution

How does Base Model Approach work?
Each module and process in Base Model Approach is configured by combining our best practice guidelines from working with hundreds of clients in conjunction with SAP best practice recommendations. The result is a simple, well-integrated solution that can be used as a starting point for either fast-track or enterprise-level implementations. With the Base Model Approach, configuration and documentation are fully completed from the beginning of the project, saving both time and cost.

Who would benefit?
Whether you are an existing SAP SuccessFactors client or are starting your SAP SuccessFactors implementation journey, this is an opportunity for you. You can implement the full Base Model Approach suite to ensure your modules are seamlessly integrated with each other; implement standalone modules or full processes (Recruit to Hire, Perform and Rewards, Core and Reporting, Learning and Development); or choose custom packages.
