Gem is delighted to announce that our talent engagement and analytics platform is now available on SAP® Store, the online marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. As a partner in the SAP PartnerEdge® program—which provides the enablement tools, benefits, and support to build high-quality, disruptive applications focused on specific business needs—we’re able to offer a new opportunity to SuccessFactors’ customers. For over five years, Gem has helped recruiting teams use data and automation to engage talent more deeply, build diverse, high-quality pipelines, and hire predictably at any scale; and this integration—built in direct partnership with SAP—will ensure Gem’s customers on SuccessFactors get up-to-speed even faster, ultimately accelerating return on investment.

“We’ve partnered closely with the SAP team to build a deep integration that allows customers get up-to-speed with minimal IT work and start seeing value from Gem almost immediately,” says Gem’s CEO, Steve Bartel. “Based on early feedback, we know that many enterprises are excited to join the Gem customers who are already using our solution to recruit strategically and build great teams.” 

One of those customers is Celestica, a 24,000+ person company in the manufacturing, engineering, and supply chain solutions space. Jaime Schmitt, Talent Attraction Manager for North America, describes the team’s experience of the Gem-SuccessFactors partnership as one in which there was “little that we needed to do. Gem said: ‘Here’s the integration, here’s the training,’ and we were off and running.” Celestica’s team scaled quickly—launching initially in the U.S. and Canada, bringing on Europe and Mexico within two weeks, and Asia just a month later. Since onboarding, “our time to fill has decreased dramatically,” Jaime says. “Within the first 30 days of using Gem, we were filling positions that had been open for over a year. In the first month, we hired nine engineers across three countries… the team can now handle higher req loads since Gem is doing so much of the work for us.”

Gem’s solution for SAP Store will be available as a free trial for 30 days. Our continuous connection to the SAP SuccessFactors ATS ensures a reliable data sync, in addition to allowing users to:

  • Build diverse, high-quality talent pipelines. Discover and attract qualified candidates through any channel—including past applicants, prospects on social networks, and talent communities.

  • Deliver an unforgettable candidate experience. Automate reminders, follow-ups, and report sharing so you have more time to make every candidate feel taken care of.

  • Shift from reactive to strategic recruiting. Analyze funnel data, benchmark performance, and forecast capacity needs to plan for future growth.

  • Get the most out of your existing TA tech stack. Accelerate ROI with a central system for engagement, collaboration, and productivity.

Gem is currently used by more than 1,200 industry-leading companies such as Cisco Meraki, Indeed, Lyft, McDonalds, Shopify, Slack, and Square—organizations that understand that hiring the best talent in the market is key to maintaining their competitive advantage. And SAP Store delivers a simplified and connected digital customer experience for finding, trying, buying, and renewing more than 2,200 solutions from SAP and its partners. Customers can find the SAP and SAP-validated solutions they need to grow their business there. And for each purchase made through SAP Store, SAP will plant a tree. 

Gem unifies data and context from the tools recruiters use every day (email, the ATS, LinkedIn and other social networks) to create a source of truth for all talent relationships. Armed with automation, insights about the entire recruiting process, and true cross-functional collaboration tools, TA teams can proactively and strategically plan for what’s ahead.
