Your SAP® ERP system contains critical information to help you run your business. Document Builder helps you create richly formatted letters, documents, reports and visualizations for automated distribution to employees, managers and business partners.

This innovative solution was developed by global software specialist EPI-USE Labs as an add-on to Query Manager™: the most popular reporting solution used by SAP HCM customers today.

Query Manager 4 with Document Builder™ is certified as powered by SAP NetWeaver.



Automated document creation

You send thousands of letters to your employees each year including New Hire Communications, Annual Reviews, Leave Notifications, Employee Payslip Explanations, Total Compensation Statements, Training Completion Certificates, Service Award Letters and W2 address confirmations.

Without Document Builder, the creation of these letters is a manual, time-consuming, costly and error-prone exercise. Document Builder enables you to design, generate and distribute professional HR documents, live from your SAP HCM system. Use a single document to output multiple versions of a letter that includes different content based on custom conditions.

Solving your SAP document generation and distribution challenges

What challenge does Document Builder solve?


How Document Builder solves the challenge

Easy, secure distribution

Powerful scheduling and distribution capabilities save time via automation. Distribute documents via email, sending each employee's document directly to them, or print documents in bulk. Feed documents into your business or workflow process via file-level integration, and password protect and encrypt sensitive PDF documents. Document Builder gives you enormous flexibility and control.


Reduce security risks

Document Builder uses the standard SAP security model for authorization and access control. By designing documents directly in SAP, you save time, money and effort, and importantly, reduce the risk of taking your data outside of SAP into other applications like Microsoft Excel or Word where it is no longer protected by SAP Security. Industry standard password protection and encryption is available to provide further peace of mind.

Eliminate custom code

Put an end to the use of SAPscript and SmartForms, and the need for custom ABAP development. Document Builder empowers users to create and produce documents effortlessly.

International content

All document content, whether text or images, can be internationalized. At document generation time there are several options available to decide which language to use, from using one pre-selected language, to automatically selecting a language per document.


Design visually

Document Builder was developed to provide a first-class design experience. The intuitive user interface makes designing professional-looking documents easier than ever. Get started by simply dragging and dropping visual elements onto a page.

Add tables, charts, images, barcodes and more to your designs with little effort, and customize and style as needed. Our document generation produces great-looking documents that mirror your designs. 


Knowledge-sharing via our live community

EPI-USE Labs’ solutions are connected to a live user community, Client Central, where you can upload or download reports, interact with support, join discussion forums, access manuals and watch educational videos, as well as share ideas, experiences and knowledge with thousands of other customers.
