SAP Process Improvements

Your SAP system is a highly valuable tool which, if executed well, will pay for itself many times over, achieves its full potential.

Keeping up to date with technological innovations and evolving functionality is an important ongoing commitment, as is ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements. You will also need to update processes as your business circumstances change, proactively and not as an afterthought.

Some customers often don’t have the metrics to evaluate how effectively their SAP systems are working after they go live which also results in significant potential for improved business processes and reduced support not being recognised. This equates to unnecessary costs and unlocked value stagnating in your business. In those cases our SAP experts recommend a Business Process Review.

 

Business Process Review

Any organisation that runs SAP and suspects that it is not getting the most out of its people, processes and technology can benefit from an Absoft Business Process Review.

  • Does your key staff spend more time fixing data or transactional problems than performing their job function?
  • Do you recognise that there might be SAP knowledge gaps in some parts of your organisation?
  • Or key business processes that should be executed in your ERP system are still being carried out off-system – often in Excel?

Absoft's Business Process Review

During Absoft’s Process Review, we take a holistic view of your business processes across three dimensions and provide solutions to improve performance, helping you to move from your current situation towards an optimum process state. Then we will work with you to determine which recommendations your organisation would like to proceed with and provide a plan as to how this will be achieved.

Making sure you fully adhere to legislation while keeping up with the additional duties is no easy task. Many HR departments across the country are feeling the strain.

Absoft has been implementing and supporting SAP HR & Payroll systems since 1991. We make it our business to stay up to date with all UK HR and payroll legislative requirements, as well as evolving SAP functionality. Some of the important benefits of our service include:

Employee Self-Service

Organisations are under ever-increasing pressure to reduce costs and do more with less. We believe that self-service is an area where the “more for less opportunity” is tangible. For example, consider activating ESS (Employee Self Service) & MSS (Manager Self Service) which is a functionality that sits within SAP HR, and allows the users to directly update SAP in relation to their personal information. ESS/MSS can be used in conjunction with Fiori/SAPUI5 applications which provides the user with a simplified user interface and allows for a more enjoyable user experience.
