SAP HCM Consulting companies

Posted by on Jan 17, 2008 in HCM, SAP

I’ve had numerous requests from business partners for a comprehensive list of SAP HCM consulting companies in the USA. My aim in this post is to give you a comprehensive list — let me know if I missed one.Pure-play SAP HCM companies:

  • EPI-USE: EPI-USE America, based in Atlanta, GA, is my former employer and one of the best SAP HCM consulting companies in the world (ok, my bias). Magnisol represents EPI-USE in Europe. EPI-USE has offices in South Africa (the parent company), Mexico, the UK, and Australia. EPI-USE has some world class complimentary SAP HCM products.
  • Symphony Consulting: Symphony is based in Charlotte, NC and partners with Ariston Consulting to implement full SAP ERP projects. They recently became an SAP Public Services partner.
  • AspireHR: Formerly ERP Solutions is based in Dallas, TX. They provide SAP HCM services and they’ve developed a number of interesting products. I assume AspireHR of the UK is not a related entity. They seem to have a strong relationship with SAP’s development group in Palo Alto.
  • Exaserv: A number of former Arinso employees started Exaserv a couple of years ago. They are based in Atlanta, GA with offices in Luwembourg, Dallas, and Walldorf Germany. They have unique products for HIPPA and Pension plans.
  • Insight Consulting: Insight is based Cincinnati, OH and Insight’s managing partner is on the HR Expert advisory board.
  • Emeritis: Emeritis has operations in the US, Belguim, Thailand, and Brazil. They claim over 200 SAP HR implementations. I don’t think that they have a strong presence in the US anymore.
  • Arinso: Arinso is one of the first and the largest SAP HCM consulting company in the world. Last year Arinso was acquired by UK-based Northgate. Arinso US is based in Atlanta, GA and has 25 offices around the world. In 2006 Arinso acquired OpenHR.
  • Worklogix: Worklogix is a niche SAP HCM consultancy. They are based in Texas, New York and Canada. Their strength is SAP Performance Management. They wrote the book!

Some full service SAP ERP consulting companies have a significant SAP HCM practice. These include:

And then the big boys:

  1. Carl,Come on…truth in advertising. Some of these guys are just 2 guys and a cumputer…Maybe we should write a blog together and shine the spotlight on the evil of this entire industry.Joseph Hillesheim2701 Dallas Parkway | Suite 420 | Plano, TX 75093O: 214.880.0099 x 102 | M: 214.334.3522 | F: 214.722.0195E: | W:

  2. Hi Joe,Thank you for your post. Why don’t you post an estimated head count for each company? Or email it to me and I’ll update the post.Yes, let’s do a post together. Do you have a blog?All the best,Carel.

  3. Alphagen is missing from this list, does it contain only American consultants?

    • I focused mostly on Global SAP HCM consulting companies. Do you provide SAP HCM consulting services? Please provide more details…

  4. Alphagen ia a UK based SAP HCM consulting company serving over 150 clients.

  5. From what I read on the Alphagen website it appears that they do a number of things in the SAP and non-SAP world including CRM. So not quite sure how they could call themselves a SAP HCM Consulting company??

  6. Carel,Would be interested in your views on the recent acquisition of the Towers SAP HCM practice by ROC?

  7. Carel,Whitaker-Taylor provides top-notch customer service and a consultative approach second to none. They also provide a series of free educational webinars to their audience around HCM topics.
