I’m really excited. I will be attending and presenting sessions at SAPPHIRE NOW 2014, it’s my first time participating and I’ve heard that it’s a huge event with tons of customers attending. Over the course of my career, I’ve probably attended over 100 conferences and I still love going! It’s energizing to be in a central place with like-minded people in your line of business, all vying to learn about the latest and greatest products and solutions for their business.
Before I take off, let me tell you about some of the cool things we have just announced for Employee Central in the May Release.
SuccessFactors Employee Central globalization expands to more countries, including: Kosovo, South Sudan and Kazakhstan. This brings our total country count to 71. Luke Marson – it’s time for you to update your lists 😆
Employee Central Payroll now includes Venezuela to our offering, increasing our total count to 28 country support.
Another new announcement related to Employee Central is that we launched Benefits! This is an efficient benefits solution that delivers control for administrators, efficiency for employees and supports global benefit events. This is our first public release of benefits to support global customers. Work, life events and other forms of benefits in kind are supported in this May release.
Ease of use for Employees and Administrators is very important to us and we continue to introduce functionality to support this. Employee Central Benefits also integrates seamlessly with Employee Central Payroll.

So, if you are attending SAPPHIRE NOW 2014, please look me up in the show guide and come to my session on Side by Side integration or preview something new from Employee Central. However, if you would rather hear from one of our customers, Meggit and Triumph Foods will also be presenting. Oh, and you did not see me at Universal Studios 😉
