Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is a global leader in the design, manufacture, and supply of advanced electronic materials for the healthcare, automotive, and telecommunications industries.
In the past, five separate companies operated under the umbrella of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. in Europe, each with limited visibility into the activities of its counterparts. Murata wanted to unify all five European companies into one legal entity, and simplify communication and collaboration between its locations.
A collaborative solution to an unconventional deployment
The company worked closely with Jigsaw Cloud’s professional services team, combining their SuccessFactors expertise with its laser-focused strategy to overcome these structural barriers, and successfully deploy the company’s first module in December 2015.
“This is the first time we can see employee data from all our European companies in a single place. We’ve got an up-to-date, single source of data that’s easy to search and simplifies key HR processes like training, development, and team structuring,”Peter Welford – Systems Manager
Murata and Jigsaw Cloud implemented the company’s SuccessFactors modules individually with six core modules in place today:
- Employee Central brings employee data from its five European companies into one location
- Performance and Goals is used for annual performance evaluations
- Succession and Development is used to identify top internal talent and choose successors for their management team
- Learning provides a central place for Murata’s digital training courses, and is one of the most visible modules to employees.
