The SAP SuccessFactors Managed Payroll offering, announced in August 2016, is an initiative for companies using SAP HCM on-premise Payroll who wish to migrate to SuccessFactors Employee Central and keep their existing SAP on-premise Payroll without a re-implementation. The migration uses a "lift-and-shift" process that results in hosting and management in the cloud. In this way Managed Payroll allows you to continue leveraging your investment in SAP Payroll and lowers the risks inherent in a Payroll re-implementation.
Managed Payroll includes subscription-based licensing, hosting and application management, all delivered under a single contract with SAP. The net effect is a Software-as-a-Service-like experience based on the Payroll you already use and trust. In addition, Managed Payroll combines the best of both SAP and SAP SuccessFactors solutions.
1. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll
SuccessFactors does not offer a new Payroll solution, rather leverages the world-class, multinational SAP Payroll in a cloud environment hosted by SuccessFactors called Employee Central Payroll. To move to this model, customers are required to do five things:
- 1. Choose from two options for deployment: Customer-Managed or Partner-Managed
- 2. Purchase a SuccessFactors Employee Central licence
- 3. Purchase a SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll licence
- 4. Re-implement and simplify (remove customisations) in their existing SAP Payroll
- 5. Build integrations (as needed) to partner for Time and or Benefits processing
2. SAP SuccessFactors Managed Payroll
Your SAP Payroll is hosted in the cloud environment by EPI-USE Labs and called SuccessFactors Managed Payroll. To move to this model, customers are required to do three things:
- 1. Sign up for Managed Payroll through SAP
- 2. Commit to subscribe to Employee Central (EPI-USE Labs will then lift-and-shift your existing Payroll to the EPI-USE Labs Unified Platform)
- 3. Testing and Go-live
