• Had different versions of the traditional vendor's software running on various regional servers, making maintenance difficult and costly
  • Could not scale the legacy provider's software into a global, company-wide system that could be adapted to all markets, which was necessary to gain visibility into key data
  • Software had no self-service functionality, so HR was burdened with many transactional tasks and couldn't focus on strategic company initiatives



  • Anticipated 40-50% cost reduction once legacy systems are decommissioned
  • Replaced more than 74 HR systems with a single system-of-record where all data can be easily accessed and reported on
  • Managers and employees will be provided self-service as well as improved insight, decision-making, and collaboration across the global workforce
  • With a talent management solution, managers have a greater understanding of the aspirations, capabilities, and costs of their organizations, which helps to improve employee engagement and retention
