Scope and Challenges

Sabre had been a longtime SAP HCM on-premise customer. The company had already opted to move to SAP S/4HANA and decided to make a change on the HCM side as well. 

Outcome and Implications

In 2016 Sabre partnered with Aasonn, now Rizing HCM, to successfully deploy SuccessFactors as their HCM platform, adding Employee Central, Onboarding and Recruitment to their existing SuccessFactors Compensation, Learning, and Performance Management systems. The company went live in May of 2017.


“We wanted to move to one integrated platform—it was important for us to integrate Finance, Employee Central, Recruiting and Onboarding,” - said Jennifer Korba, Principal HRIS Analyst at Sabre

"When purchasing SAP SuccessFactors, Employee Central comes standard with three instances, while Recruiting and Onboarding come with two instances. It is important to manage those instances because it greatly benefits the integration of modules if you can do cross-module configuration and testing—this won’t work if your Employee Central instance in one step ahead." - said Jennifer Korba, Principal HRIS Analyst at Sabre
