ESS (Employee Self Service) 

Employee Self Service (ESS) Applications allow employees to view benefits, update personal information, submit time cards, make vacation requests, and request travel expense reimbursement from their Web browsers. The ESS Applications free human resources staff to deal with more complex tasks, but do not require training and supporting employees on a specialized application.

ESS is an effective means for providing real-time access and data maintenance capabilities to the source or owner of the data. It has the ability to offload much of the data entry and related customer service activities that may be typically performed in an organization's human resources, payroll, benefits and purchasing departments.


These departments are freed up from many of the routine, day-to-day processing functions. Instead, resources can be assigned to activities that are more critical to your organization's success. Overall, service levels and efficiency increase and costs per transaction can be drastically reduced. The return on investment is significant.

No SAP training required

With SAP ESS, employees can maintain their own data and can access their information without having SAP training or core SAP applications on their desktops. Because there's no "dummy database" or batch update, employees have access to the most up-to-date, accurate data on record. And, there are none of the out-of-sync situations that can occur with third party, "bolted on" ESS solutions.

Inherently international

Because SAP™ R/3™ architecture is inherently international, with unsurpassed language and currency management capabilities, SAP ESS is also inherently international. It takes full advantage of SAP R/3 global capabilities, including country localization and all SAP supported language and currency management facilities.
