Why you Need it

SAP S/4HANA-certified solution for Payroll data

Real-time reporting of live payroll data can be challenging. In the past, on-premise payroll customers had to use the Wage Type Reporter or custom development programming (ABAP) and the full life cycle transport process to create and maintain reports. This process was complex and costly.

Query Manager is the only SAP S/4HANA certified solution which gives you the ability to analyze, review, and interact with your live Payroll data. Benefits include:

  • Whitelisted to work on SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll
  • Live Payroll and Time data for On-Premise SAP Payroll data and SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll
  • Easy to use
  • The ability to include virtually any data source
  • The option to include your own formulas, leveraging Excel-like functions.
