Project at a glance

In a seven month delivery from kick off to go live, the team moved a global, mature and finely tuned HR system from on premise to cloud with GP Strategies as proud implementation partner. Danfoss went live with Employee central and several integrations for 27 000 employees in 56 countries.

Project highlights

The time perspective of moving a global, mature HR system from on premise to the cloud inclusive many integrations was a challenge. Also, Danfoss had a big change management task with this project, where numerous local HR administrators had to learn how to use an entirely new system. But despite initial concerns, the project has progressed beyond expectations.

 “Thanks to the support of GP Strategies, we managed to painlessly move our heavily customized on premise SAP to a modern, digital and user-friendly Employee Central solution. This was achieved in only 7 months from kick-off to go-live.”

– Olivier Durand, HRIS & HR Processes Director at Danfoss
