Mobile First — SuccessFactors Mobile is First, according to Ventana Research
In 2014, for the first time in history, the number of global mobile users was higher than the number of desktop users. Add the fact that the total activity on smartphones and tablets account for an astounding 60 percent of digital media time spent in the U.S. (ComScore, 2014), and it becomes obvious that Mobile technology has swiftly risen to become the leading digital platform.
We at SuccessFactors jumped on that bandwagon very early on with our mobile application that helps employees, managers and executives become more productive and achieve greater business success. Our mobile offering covers a full spectrum of tasks across our entire HCM suite of solutions – from recruiting, new hire onboarding, performance & goals management, learning and analytics, to social collaboration and a powerful people profile and org chart. We provide your people with the tools they need, when they need it and where they need it.
Today we’re not blowing our own horn; we’re letting others do it:
We’re proud to be recognized as winner of the 2015 Ventana Research Mobile Technology Award.
As Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer of Ventana Research put it:
SuccessFactors has innovated its mobile enablement of its applications to make it simple to achieve tasks that are relevant to every employee like requesting time off or make changes to information providing self-service but also provide access to goals / tasks, organizational chart and people. Congrats to SuccessFactors for making mobile easy and productive with your applications.
And it doesn’t stop there. We continue our dedication with innovations that will support our customers through their journey and will make their people even more successful such as:
- New employee self-services / manager self-services – to name just a few: Mobile pay statements, flexible time-off requests, time sheet, performance reviews, spot awards, and many more to come in the next months.
- Security improvements like broader support for more MDM solutions, and several options to require more complex passwords.
- Brand new mobile app for Android – delivering the same delightful user experience as our iOS apps for iPhone and iPad.
We are honored and humbled to receive this recognition. It proves that our Mobile strategy is right and it provides another reason for every single SuccessFactors customer to consider rolling out SuccessFactors Mobile to their people.
