SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As companies realize that strategic recruiting, employee development, collaboration and succession planning are all critical business issues, they're looking towards technology to directly improve HR processes and boost the bottom line. And they're turning to SuccessFactors, an SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) company, to get it. The company today announced exceptional customer growth throughout 2013, highlighting demand for the full-suite of Human Capital Management (HCM) capabilities in the cloud that only SuccessFactors can deliver. In addition to its 23 million subscribers across 3,700 companies, SuccessFactors recently added multiple global customers across various industries including banking, chemicals and industrial machinery – extending its leadership in the HCM sector and helping SAP become one of the fastest-growing cloud stories in the enterprise software world.
"According to an Ernst and Young study, only nine percent of a company's workforce is based entirely in the country of their corporate headquarters. Because companies are managing workforces in local markets, there is a demand for solutions that both address the end-to-end requirements of the entire employee lifecycle, and the global needs of business – not just systems built in the U.S. for the U.S. markets, recently adapted for other markets," said Shawn Price, president, SuccessFactors, SAP Cloud. "I believe SuccessFactors is uniquely positioned to address both of these demands. Our solutions are global, developed to help address complex, regionally-specific requirements, available in 35 languages and designed for the way people work today – across borders, via mobile, and engaging in a way that connects remote workers to one another."
