Plano, Texas, January 13, 2016 – HR Focal Point is proud to announce that their client, Watco Companies, will present their lessons learned from their migration from on-premise SAP HCM to SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll powered by HR Focal Point’s Managed Services Program at the SAP SuccessFactors HR 2017 Conference in Orlando, Florida on March 6-9, 2017. 

Founded in 1983, Watco Companies provides transportation, terminal and port, supply chain and mechanical solutions for their customers located in North America and Australia. The company has grown to nearly 3,000 team members. Through this implementation, Watco Companies wanted to ensure business continuity for payroll, focus HR resources on more strategic activities in the HR/Payroll space and move payroll team members away from scheduled, repetitive activities. HR Focal Point was the implementation and consulting partner for all aspects of this project.

During their session at HR 2017, Watco Companies will share:

  1. Key business drivers behind migrating to SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll managed service offering from an on-premise system.  
  2. How Watco overcame challenges experienced during migration such as cleaning up data prior to conversion, conversion of future-dated infotypes and history into SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll, and resolving those issues by executing a solid business plan.
  3. The company’s future plans around SAP SuccessFactors including deployment of additional talent management modules.
