Digital HR is fundamentally transforming the way organizations think about HR and people management, bringing numerous challenges to business leaders. EPI-USE Labs can help you not only to adapt to but embrace the changes transforming today’s workplace with a range of products and techniques. We offer a comprehensive HCM Productivity Suite which brings you the following benefits for both on-premise and SAP SuccessFactors:
Because of the architecture and integrated data model, SAP test and development systems very quickly diverge from the state of the Production system - either via data changes in Production, or changes en route through the landscape, or via testing and training activities in those systems themselves. This makes it difficult to provide an accurate reflection of how a change will impact Production, effectively train new users, and support issues that do arise in Production. This means in many cases SAP professionals carry out activities in Production which should only ever be done in pre-Production environments. The ability to provision accurate test data removes the need to carry out such activities in Production.
Your SAP HCM data is at risk whenever a change is introduced – whether through business/configuration changes or technical/landscape changes. Variance Monitor™ gives you the power and control you need to single out variances in SAP HCM data. It’s easy to set tolerance levels and automate comparisons. Your role becomes proactive, and you can evaluate differences and resolve them with ease.
“The beauty of this product is our testing process is easy to follow and now takes days instead of months”
Sam Musharbash, Senior Business Analyst, Payroll Support, University of Tennessee
How do you extract accurate, meaningful and real-time information from all of your SAP HCM and Payroll data? Query Manager is a complete and powerful SAP ERP HCM reporting solution which integrates on-premise data with data in SAP SuccessFactors. You can view your reports in the SAP GUI, as a tile in SAP SuccessFactors, or with a browser from your computer or tablet.
With Query Manager’s Microsoft Excel Add-in, you can refresh, analyse, share, and present your critical SAP HCM data, dynamically in Microsoft Excel. And Query Manager’s Add-on for SuccessFactors Integration allows you to report on data from both your on-premise SAP system and your SAP SuccessFactors solution.
“I don’t know why anyone would not have Query Manager; the benefits and the value-add far outweigh the costs. It pays for itself in a couple of months and empowers the HR team.”
Michael Gleeson, Head of Shared Services Systems and Management Information, Amey
Your SAP ERP system contains critical information to help you run your business. You send thousands of letters to your employees each year, and creating these letters manually is time-consuming and error-prone. 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. Document Builder also leverages third-party solution DocuSign to allow users to electronically sign, prepare, act on, and manage documents.
“We have been very happy with Document Builder; it was a worthwhile investment for us, and we’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from those using it.”
Richard Cain, HR Systems Adviser, Dorset Council
