SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — November 29, 2017 — SAP SE today said that U.S. lighting systems manufacturer Acuity Brands Inc., Chinese renewable energy company Hanergy Holding Group Ltd and Mexican retailer La Europea are among the latest wave of companies to select SAP® SuccessFactors® solutions for human capital management (HCM) to help drive digital transformation, tap into the full potential of their people and turn purpose into performance.

“People are more and more looking for, and expecting to find, purpose at work,” SAP SuccessFactors* President Greg Tomb said. “We know that companies who prioritize purpose see more motivated people and higher sales, which leads to greater success. Our focus is on continuing to deliver market-leading solutions that help our customers innovate for the future – with the right people, insights and technology that support the fast pace of change we’re all experiencing in this era of digital transformation. Getting it all right always starts with your people.”

In addition to the momentum in Europe, a diverse group of leading organizations across the rest of the globe selected SAP SuccessFactors solutions in the third quarter. They include:

Acuity is transitioning from a traditional manufacturing culture to a high-tech electronics one and will require a specialized talent pipeline and a digital HR platform. Acuity selected the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite for its 20,000 employees located in nine countries to help realize the company’s vision, provide associates with the optimal workplace, show a firm commitment to talent and guarantee the best opportunities for professional development.

Hanergy, a multinational renewable energy company based in Beijing, intends to use SAP SuccessFactors solutions to help improve performance management, succession planning and the development of key talent. SAP SuccessFactors solutions answer the company’s need for technical support tools that can be tailored easily to specific countries.

  • iXerv (USA/professional services)

iXerv, a global provider of implementation and strategic services for SAP SuccessFactors solutions, selected SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central for its global employee base to support the company’s rapid growth. As a global company working on global projects, iXerv chose SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to help streamline its HR processes, provide greater visibility of the company and teams, and enable employees to more quickly know their colleagues no matter where they are located. iXerv expects increased efficiency in its processes and operations, centralized and secure records on all employees, and consolidated analytics and reporting. The implementation also will set a foundation for future components of the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite.

La Europea, a leader in sales and distribution of wines, spirits and gourmet products, continues its digital transformation journey by selecting SAP S/4HANA® and SAP HANA® Enterprise Cloud to help improve its processes and make strategic decisions. With more than 60 years in Mexico, 62 stores, four distribution centers and 1,300 employees, the company will also rely on the SAP Extended Warehouse Management application and SAP Hybris® and SAP SuccessFactors solutions to help tightly integrate its human resources with the real-time management of its facilities and online store.

As one the top five private universities in China, Eurasia University (EU) has chosen SAP as its digital transformation partner to help it become the unrivalled market leader. With the SAP HANA platform, EU is creating a next-generation data platform to integrate every corner of the campus. EU also will use SAP SuccessFactors solutions to simplify its HR processes for both full- and part-time staff.

These companies are some of the thousands of international organizations who have selected leading SAP SuccessFactors solutions and are utilizing SAP’s global cloud infrastructure to put people at the center of business and drive their digital HR strategies.
