    Posted by Eleanor Hartley on Jan 29th, 2014

    I am responsible for Successfactors in my organisation and I found this book to be really useful at explaining some of the details of the system, and also highlighting some of the new features we have not upgraded to yet. It's great to be able to look at this without having to implement anything!

    I lent it to our Executive Director and I had to buy another copy as I couldn't get it back! I would recommend this book to anyone with, or thinking about Successfactors in their organisation.
