Grundfos Achieves Success With a Global Go-Live of SuccessFactors Employee Central

Grundfos, a Danish pump manufacturer, engaged GP Strategies in 2019 to implement SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) to replace their legacy SAP HCM On-Prem. The solution would be rolled out to 67 countries, impacting 19,000 employees, and include several integrations and employee self-service capabilities.

Project at a Glance

The GP Strategies team implemented basic EC functionality using standard migration and set up standard replication from EC to SAP HCM and integrations with SAP HCM, SAP Finance, SuccessFactors BizX, and SuccessFactors LMS. GP Strategies also updated Grundfos’ existing Talent Modules to ensure they could survive and be processed on EC master data.

Business Impact

Grundfos is moving from a central data and maintenance process to a decentralized setup, which allows for much needed self-service for managers and employees. The journey aims to optimize and simplify many processes moving toward global inclusion. This shift will empower the company with improved, high-quality data across the globe, maximizing business results.
The EC implementation, including the first phase of self-service, was completed with great success. More localization requirements to support regional payroll systems and additions to self-service will be rolled out soon.

Grundfos is present worldwide

Through 83 companies Grundfos are directly accessible in 56 countries, and through a network of partners, distributors and sub-dealers. Poul Due Jensen founded the company in 1945 from his basement in Bjerringbro, Denmark. The first pump made was a water pump. Through the decades, Grundfos have sharpened skills, and to this day, Grundfos take pride in moving water to where it should be. Using as little energy as possible when doing it.
