SAP Work Zone: a new quality of teamwork

Behind the success of any large organization are the people who usually work in teams. Probably every entrepreneur wants their employees to work like gears in the best watches. However, this is not always the case, thereby compromising not only projects or communication, but also the business itself. Effectiveness and commitment to work does not depend only on employees and their skills. The success of projects implemented by teams is primarily affected by the organization of their work.

In order to put the organization on a path to success and ensure a comfortable and stimulating working environment, it is necessary to equip employees with tools that will streamline and support their actions. This is the kind of assistance that SAP Work Zone provides.

What is SAP Work Zone?

Work Zone is an SAP SuccessFactors module designed to streamline the work of teams in an organization.  Its aim is to provide users with a convenient and highly functional space for managing and developing projects, communicating with other members of the team, and tracking progress. This system, if properly implemented, guarantees an increase in productivity and business efficiency. It also provides teams performing particular activities with appropriate and functional tools, thereby ensuring better productivity. This tool is compatibile with other business applications and SAP applications. The ability to create work areas, ensuring the order of specific steps, as well as their independent management, translates into convenience and satisfaction resulting from efficiency in task performance. SAP Work Zone is also a social space for communicating with colleagues in chat or commenting on specific elements of a project. These functions give teams a sense of control over their work and a great deal of comfort, thereby motivating them to continue contributing to the development of the organization.

SAP Work Zone instead of SAP Jam

SAP Jam will soon be replaced by SAP Work Zone. The producer plans to withdraw SAP Jam from the market in 2027.
