As the job market is heating up, employers are looking for HCM solutions that provide them with functionality and options to deliver a great employee experience, while minimizing the time it takes to administer and run the application.


At the same time, when it comes to software implementation, the top pain point cited by CIOs is complexity. Complexity and time to deployment concerns make many implementations go on hold or get cancelled.

Now, with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central US Payroll RDS, both organizational and technological concerns for payroll function are addressed, offering this key HCM functionality for deployment on a managed timeline with predictable budget:


  • A package that includes vital payroll functions, from payroll processing to employee lifecycle and absence management payroll events
  • An integrated solution that transfers data seamlessly between Payroll, ERP Financials, Employee Central and Time Off applications, saving administration time and effort
  • Easy implementation with a preconfigured, legally compliant best practice based solution
  • Quick deployment with a cloud instance ready to run in weeks


What do you get in the package?

  • Preconfigured cloud instance of Employee Central Payroll solution, supplied with US specific SAP and SuccessFactors best practices
  • Getting Started Guide: lists  all activities you need to carry out before implementing the solution package, from system and tool set-up to activation of business content and validation
  • Configuration Guide for each of the building blocks in scope of the solution:  provides the information to set up the configuration of the building block manually
  • Process Flow Diagrams for each of the building blocks in scope of the solution
  • Test scripts for each of the building blocks in scope of the solution
  • Software Delivery Requirements: helps validate that key prerequisites such as software components and versions match the customer situation and are in place for the implementation; check that correct content, tools and skills are in place before the project starts
  • Employee Central payroll workbook: describes the integration configuration between Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll


Building blocks in scope of the solution:

  • Add new Employee/Rehire
  • Take Action: Job Change/Transfer/Compensation Change
  • Take Action: Promotion/Demotion
  • Take Action: Termination
  • Data Change Employee File
  • Absences Maintenance using Time Off

  • Payroll and Post Payroll Processing
  • Retroactive Payroll Processing

Over the next weeks, I will talk about the functionality provided by the package and how it helps deliver a seamless payroll processing experience.

    Thanks for the blog Natasha and what type of SMP ID do you have to have to view the content of the RDS as I would like to view the test scripts in particular.

      Jarret, you can use your regular “S” ID to access the RDS content. To do so, please go to the package home page SAP Service Marketplace – Employee Central Payroll US and click on the orange “Download Package” button on the upper right. On the next page, click “Installation” on the upper left, and download the package.

      Once dowloaded, click on the file name start_BP_SFSF_PY_ERP607_USV1.htm to open the package and view the test scripts.

      Don’t hesitate to reach out with any additional questions.

        Hi Natasha

        I have ~20 SMP ID and tried several including partner, customer and all don’t seem to have download enabled.  Is there another way that I could potentially get this as very much appreciated.

        Regards,

        Jarret
