GP Strategies Baseline Company: A Preconfigured SuccessFactors System

Baseline Company is a preconfigured SuccessFactors system developed by GP Strategies SuccessFactors subject matter experts and solution architects, each with at least 6 years of experience within their respective module or process area.

The Idea Behind Baseline Company
The idea behind Baseline Company is to provide a framework for guiding clients on how to get the most out of their SuccessFactors system. Instead of simply asking our clients what they have in mind and risk building a cluttered system with unnecessary customizations, we want to present our clients with a well-functioning starting point, allowing them to make qualified decisions based on an existing setup with minimal maintenance.

Common project challenges:

  • Extreme complexity in identifying requirements
  • Long implementation times with high cost as a result
  • High risk that end users do not adopt the solution

How does Baseline Company work?
Each module and process in Baseline Company is configured by combining our own best practice guidelines in combination with SAP best practice recommendations. The result is a simple, well-integrated solution that can be used as a starting point for either Fast Track or Enterprise level implementations. With Baseline Company, configuration and documentation are fully completed from the beginning of the project, saving both time and cost.

Who would benefit?
Whether you are an existing SAP SuccessFactors client or are starting your SAP SuccessFactors implementation journey, this is an opportunity for you. You can implement the full Baseline suite to ensure your modules are seamlessly integrated with each other, implement standalone modules or full processes (Recruit to Hire, Perform and Rewards, Core and Reporting, Learning and Development), or choose custom packages.
