I’ve been talking a bit lately with Nina Villamar, AsiaPac sales manager for SuccessFactors. SF, for those not accustomed to it, is a talent and performance management SaaS product that has been deployed through small, medium and enterprise customers. It allows for goal and compensation management as well as performance review functionality.

Nina told me about recent successes in the Australasian region. Among the deployments include ones into the following organisations;

Minter Ellison
Deloitte Australia
New South Wales Audit
Swinburne University of Technology
ComputerShare
Xerox
Sears/K-Mart
Myer Pty Ltd
Micron Technology
Toyota of Australia
Skilled Group
Sun Microsystems
Mervyns
Texas A&M University
New Zealand Fire Service
Victorian Electoral Commission

Good wins and it’s also great to see SF providing a sales model that provides value of itself to businesses, SF hosts luncheon sessions in Australia/New Zealand for HR professionals and business owners to connect and share best practices in performance management. Sure they’re expecting sales to come from the connections, but there’s also innate value in bringing the people together into a forum for communication.
