More than 285 Customers Using Three or More SuccessFactors Modules to Drive High-Impact Performance & Talent Management

NEW YORK — June 7, 2007 — SuccessFactors, the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, today announced broad-based, same-customer adoption of the company’s suite of integrated on-demand human capital management application modules. More than 285 SuccessFactors customers are using three or more of the integrated set of modules, which enable organizations to align, develop, motivate and maintain a high-performance workforce, to strategically manage their human capital. Multi-adoption customers are deriving substantial benefit from their individual initiatives, such as performance, compensation and succession management, while maximizing the value of multiple, integrated information sources to increase corporate visibility and drive real-time, informed business decisions.

In addition to the 285 customers referenced above, more than 600 SuccessFactors customers have adopted at least two modules, with 126 customers using four or more modules and close to 50 customers already utilizing five or more modules.

"More and more companies are making the move toward using an integrated suite of performance and talent management tools to help them manage their workforce,” said Jason Corsello, vice president, The Center of Excellence, Knowledge Infusion. “By taking a broad approach to human capital management that encapsulates all aspects of strategic human resources planning, companies are getting more business benefits out of just a single piece of software.”

Most companies view human capital management elements – such as performance management, compensation planning, goal planning, succession planning and more – as disparate initiatives, existing in their own silos and generally approach each initiative separately. Companies are finding, however that employee development and training initiatives are more effective when tied to a competency-based performance review process, which in turn, drive decisions around compensation and succession planning. When anchored to a clear, organization-wide goal alignment process, performance reviews become more meaningful, more useful and a centerpiece of a company’s business strategy.

According to the Gartner Marketscope for Employee Performance Management Software 2007, “SuccessFactors has been very successful in performance management and is the only specialist vendor reviewed that has more than 100 customers each for performance, compensation and succession management, with many successfully using all three."

“Our goal at McDermott is to have a thriving business that is powered by a high-performance workforce,” said Kevin Blasini, director of HR at McDermott International, Inc., a leading engineering and construction company with over 20,000 employees. “SuccessFactors helps us achieve this by providing consistent and integrated views of different facets of our human capital management initiative while also paving the way for our organization to leverage multiple sources of information to drive business decisions.”

“We have always developed the SuccessFactors application suite with the explicit goal of helping every single one of our customers optimize their business,” said SuccessFactors CEO Lars Dalgaard. “Part of that is making sure our customers can use and pay for only what they need, when they need it, while making it easy to build out their systems as they grow and can manage more complex needs. The fact that so many of our customers are effectively rolling out multiple modules not only further sets us from our competition but also showcases the value in an integrated solution and the real business benefits that a comprehensive approach to talent management can mean to organizations.”
