Businesses equipped with SAP SuccessFactors for Human Resources management and SAP Concur for automated travel and expense management, will now be able to go the extra mile in terms of data simplification and reliability with the SAP SuccessFactors to Concur connector.
ARAGO Consulting, an implementation partner of SAP Concur, has imagined and developed complete integration between SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Concur. Allowing the synchronization of Employee data from SAP SuccessFactors with SAP Concur, it has many advantages:
- Real-time data synchronization
Thanks to the connector between SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Concur Expense, Request and Travel, no other input is needed. Employee data synchronization is automatic and avoids data entry errors. For the teams in charge, this is also a considerable time-saver, allowing them to concentrate on tasks with higher added value. Another point: the monitoring of employee accounts is improved.
- Automation of movements in the company
The processes related to new hires and terminations are made easier. With each new recruitment, the connector creates a user account in SAP Concur (delta mode). The same applies for the departure of an employee; with the postponement of the termination in SAP Concur if necessary.
- Consistent mapping within the organization
Thanks to the connector between SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Concur Expense, Request and Travel, you benefit from consistent mapping between employee groups, organizational units, accounting, categories defined by travel policy, reimbursement currency, etc. This is a real asset for a medium-sized company or a group with an international dimension.
- The choice of the employee’s identifier
To access the different platforms, it is not necessary to have several accounts. You just need to use one single identifier: User ID, Employee ID, or Person ID.
This new application helps secure information related to employees, obtain a comprehensive view of their expenses and travel and make the management of their expense reports easier and more reliable, while improving their experience as employees.
“For IT departments, having an integrated system helps prevent information errors and ensure data quality in a full application environment. It breaks down silos. As for HR departments, they have a single base that updates employee accounts compiled from all the solutions used. For example, if an employee changes position or department, the information will be automatically updated in SAP Concur. There’s nothing to worry about! Ultimately, this represents both time savings and savings for the company”, continues Christoph von Platen, Director of SAP Concur Practice at ARAGO Consulting.
