HR Transformation with SuccessFactors gives global equipment specialist the foundations to double in size

SuccessFactors was chosen as the enabler for transforming the HR part of the business to allow the organisation to gain globalised reporting and a shared service centre model.


The client is an international equipment specialist for energy, defence, steel-making and the environment. It assists clients throughout the whole of the life-cycle of their equipment in order to improve the economic, technical and environmental performance of their equipment.


The client wanted to implement a full HR transformation project over an extended period of two and a half years. It was felt this time-frame would enable the business to successfully transform their processes across a large multi-cultural headcount with no existing standardised processes. The aim of the transformation was to support the organisation in driving an aggressive expansion plan.


  • HR talent management programme supports massive company growth
  • SAP SuccessFactors enables HR transformation and standardises business processes
  • Efficient recruitment has direct business benefits

This project is a great example of achieving HR transformation at the pace and capacity of the customer. Whilst technology is the tool within the solution the business content sits at the heart of it and SuccessFactors can be used in a modular way to enable the HR transformation.”
