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
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.
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.
