Case Study

Global Implementation of SAP® SuccessFactors® Employee Central in 22 Countries

After evaluating their current HCM solution, GP Strategies’ client, an entertainment technologies company, looked to standardize business processes around the globe with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC).  After implementing Employee Central with Hula Partners, the company is now able to run their business consistently with reliable data while incorporating information across 22 countries, including their contingent workforce.

The Challenge 

With their expanding global presence and utilization of a strong contingent workforce, the company determined that their current legacy SAP HCM on-premise solution was no longer meeting core HR business requirements. They required a global solution with lower administrative costs and more consistent processes across all 22 countries. They also needed a more comprehensive solution that provides additional controls and visibility for their large contingent workforce.

GP Strategies Solution 

Hula Partners was chosen to build a strategic roadmap and implementation plan in order to support all requirements for a successful “big bang” Employee Central implementation. The project included a full global implementation of EC along with key integrations across multiple applications and technical platforms.


After the project go-live in February 2017, the company has seen improvements in their administrative costs, business processes, and most notably in the employee user experience and satisfaction. With a cloud solution, administrative costs and manual efforts have reduced significantly, while consistency and reliability of data have increased. User experience has improved immensely—all managers and employees can navigate the HR system with ease.
