01 July 2016, 08:56

Lagos – The success of Nigeria's leading technology, data and mobile media business shows African companies can utilise the power of cloud solutions to succeed in the digital economy, a global software corporation has said.

Terragon Group, the Nigerian company has adopted cloud-based SuccessFactors Human Capital Management solutions by SAP, the German-headquartered firm.

Terragon, one of the leading digital media focused business groups in Africa, has utilised the power of the solutions in its bid to retain scarce top talent.

Michael Etukudoh, Senior Talent and Office Resource Executive at Terragon, said the company wanted a system that could automate and track core Human Resources processes.

He said since the company implemented SAP's SuccessFactors, the average approval time for any workflow in the system had been reduced to eight minutes.

“All leave requests, assessments and approvals are now done within the system with only a few clicks, freeing our Talent office up to conduct more meaningful employee engagement activities and increase talent retention within the group,” said Etukudoh.

Oryx Computer Systems, a long-standing SAP partner in West Africa, managed the implementation of SuccessFactors.

“We deployed the Performance and Goals as well as the Employee Central applications to assist The Terragon Group with making the employee management process quicker and more efficient implementation was managed,”
said project lead, Tayo Adegbola.

Brett Parker, Chief Executive Officer of SAP Africa, said the ease of use, quick implementation timeline and relative ease of training new users made the SuccessFactors offering irresistible.

Large multinational corporations such as Nestlé, Airtel and Coca-Cola have all experienced its talent management and retention benefits.

“The success of the Terragon Group implementation shows that African companies of any size can utilize the power of our cloud-based Human Capital Management solutions to win the talent war in this Digital Economy,” said Parker.

Digital economy refers to an economy that is based on digital computing technologies.
