CHARLOTTE, N.C, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Symphony Management Consulting (Symphony) announced that its new offering, Symphony Integrated Cloud HR and Payroll, is an SAP-qualified rapid-deployment solution. The rapid-deployment solution from Symphony provides organizations with a streamlined, fixed-cost implementation in the cloud of the SuccessFactors Employee Central and SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll solutions. The deployment by Symphony provides organizations with a next-generation core human resources information system (HRIS) and a leading-edge payroll solution.


"We're thrilled to announce our SAP-qualified rapid-deployment solution," said Kellie Fitzpatrick, CEO, Symphony Management Consulting. "Symphony's offering leverages a comprehensive, best-in-class cloud solution for both HR and payroll. That total cloud solution, in addition to Symphony's deep HR knowledge and implementation experience with SuccessFactors and SAP® software, allows us to deliver a complete and cost-effective total cloud package in as little as 22 weeks."

Rapid-deployment solutions are typically ready-to-use combinations of best-in-class software, pre-configured content and pre-defined services that have been specifically tailored to industries or line of business needs, delivered at a fixed price with a fixed implementation time. They are designed to offer a quick, cost-effective method for standardizing processes and adopting the latest innovations with fewer migration risks. Symphony's solution is available in an affordable, scalable package that combines industry-leading cloud solutions from SAP and SuccessFactors, an SAP company, with Symphony's experienced implementation team. With the rapid-deployment solution, customers can get up and running in substantially less time than with a traditional implementation, which may take upwards of 52 weeks.

Symphony's rapid-deployment solution capitalizes on the standard functionality in Employee Central and SAP-supported best practices for Employee Central Payroll, enabling an overall reduction in the project timeline and costs. Integration for Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll, and related third-party systems, is executed with the use of Dell Boomi and pre-built iFlow Eclipse tools from SAP.

"The utilization of Symphony's pre-defined methodology enables our team to quickly deploy a fully operational HR and payroll solution. The accelerated timeline allows organizations to recognize an immediate return on their investment and allows them to gain insight into global employee data for headcount, position management and other HR functions critical to the organization," Fitzpatrick said. "By including the proper integration, we help ensure that organizations are quickly and cost-effectively able to run transactions for all critical HR and payroll functions and see their organization as they should – in 360 degrees."
