FinancialForce HCM includes modules for Core HR, applicant tracking and recruiting, onboarding, compensation management, learning management, and much more.
FinancialForce HCM recognizes that a company's most important asset is their workforce, and that using multiple disparate systems leads to gaps and errors in critical information, as well as poor adoption rates. FinancialForce brings core HR, talent management, and workforce management into a single platform delivered entirely in the cloud.
The configurable Force.com framework allows users to tailor the solution to meet your needs, from creating new pages and workflows to adding new fields, approval processes, and more. FinancialForce HCM is both smartphone and tablet friendly, as well, making a great fit for today's mobile workforce.
FinancialForce HCM delivers global functionality, and has current customers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, China, and more.

FinancialForce Human Capital Management (HCM) sits on the Salesforce platform, so it has a familiar look and feel to employees as well as becomes seamless to access in day-to-day work. FinancialForce's investment in the HCM product shows in the product roadmap. In configuring the software, you can decide to keep control or open up different tabs to employees and build approval workflows from the employee to manager to HR or not.
The use of VisualForce pages makes it difficult to relabel fields or add custom fields to a page. The software is built around a hierarchical work structure, so it can be hard to track matrix work relationships.
As you evaluate HCM software, you need to understand who's live are you trying to make easier: HR, the employee or both? Do you have staff in one country or multiple? Are you working in a hierarchical or matrix work environment? Are you outsourcing any HR functions, like payroll or benefits, that you would prefer to bring in-house?
Used to manage a moderate employee base. Generally use for things like making sure the proper people approve/deny requests, to accompany project planning, etc. Extremely easy to set up from an administrative perspective and it does the basics to get the job done.
After you get beyond the initial setup, the nightmare begins. From a poorly designed user interface to extremely slow load times in basic use, the experience is unpleasant. It is tolerable; however, no one is really satisfied with it and a few have gone as far researching and asking for alternative solutions.
It'll get the job done, but it's just not great. Built on/within Salesforce, it suffers from some of the platform's general downfalls, but that's definitely not the only problem. Along with that you also need to keep in mind licensing. There's not only costs for the HCM, but also for the Salesforce platform.
If you are already using Salesforce, it's OK. Not an outstanding value-add, though. There's not a lot of other HCM solutions on the AppExchange and I would therefore recommend looking outside that spectrum completely.
- Easy to set up
- Support is actually responsive
- Lack of versatility
- Extremely slow
- Daily use is cumbersome
- Extremely poor user interface
- Overall poor quality
- Cost increases due to deployment platform (Salesforce & the HCM)
Vana Workforce is simply the best solution available for small and mid size business. It has everything we needed in one integrated solution. The ability to completely configure and customize was a huge bonus.
