For this French company with an international dimension, world leader in handling equipment for construction, agriculture and industry, the implementation of a high-performance, integrated and flexible HRIS, is part of a global approach for the management of talents and the harmonization of HR processes.

Context & Goals:

The implementation of an efficient, integrated and flexible HRIS is part of a global approach to talent management and harmonization of HR processes. With more than 3,500 employees located in 20 countries, the MANITOU Group assures its leadership on the performance of its employees by developing their skills through training and internal mobility, including internationally. The Group must have a unique, scalable talent management tool deployed in the subsidiaries.



SAP SuccessFactors was chosen for its functional coverage, flexibility and speed of deployment.


“The tool in SaaS mode evolves by itself, we benefit from the innovations without additional cost, it is very flexible”, specifies Vincent ROMAIN, HRIS Manager at MANITOU Group. “We have established a true partnership of trust with ARAGO Consulting, which has reassured us with its cloud culture, its experience of many successful projects and its project methodology based on best practices, which can accelerate deployment and obtain reliable and fast results. ”



  • The new, integrated and automated HRIS was set up in less than a year, in France and internationally.
  • It allows to generate and share, at the Group level, a global view of the workforce and employee information, annual interview campaigns, monitoring of individual objectives and performance, career management and recruitment.
  • By imposing unified and standardized processes within a single HRIS, the implementation of SuccessFactors has strongly contributed to the internationalization of the Manitou Group, promoting the feeling of belonging to the Group and the sharing of best practices and information between the Group HR department and the HR divisions of the different countries.


The Manitou HRIS project has been awarded with an SAP Quality Award.

“« An ‘SAP Quality Award’ has distinguished the success of our project and the innovative cloud approach proposed by ARAGO Consulting, for international talent management, speed of implementation and support for change. » ”
