Before working with EPI-USE Labs, Straumann had been using standard SAP ad hoc queries. All SAP/HCM users had been responsible for running these queries.
With constant time pressures and a lack of specific responsibilities in HR, Straumann faced insufficient data quality, reporting errors and general inefficiency.
I love the possibility in Query Manager to be able to check objects, even if no value has been added (value is null). This isn’t possible with SAP standard functions testing.

Straumann selected Query Manager to improve its SAP HR reporting and data quality. With Query Manager, they can generate automated SAP HR reports and check data quality, and run complex queries. They can also send automated reports, punctually and securely, to predefined groups of recipients.
Manual, time-consuming work is also minimised. In the past, there were often errors in the currency (such as EUR instead of CHF), and it took minutes per report to find the missing data records. With Query Manager, Straumann can automatically and proactively check for inaccuracies before the incorrect data lead to problems and errors in interfaces or reports.
Straumann now uses Query Manager to provide data as a service. Every Monday morning at 08:00, it automatically sends reports for review to the HR Business Partner and Manager. The group has benefited from a significant improvement in data quality and consistency.
HR and managers are also provided with a variety of reports via Fiori as a self-service.
