Apart from current challenges such as skills shortage and retention of employees to the company, the classical tasks of HR management must not be forgotten. Personnel administration and payroll still tie up a considerable amount of time and resources within HR departments and corporate administration. In the field of personnel administration, payroll, travel expense reports and time recording, the use of digital processes and self-services simplifies and automates work steps in order to give your HR employees more time for other important activities.
Efficient processes and data protection in one package
It is still very important for many companies to keep HR core competences, such as time management or payroll, within the safe and reliable on-premise environment. Here, you can refer to the well-established SAP Human Capital Management (SAP HCM) solution. FIS is your competent partner for cross-industry SAP implementations also in the HR area. With more than 25 years of experience and an expert consultant team, FIS supports you from the decision in favor of the HCM HR module to the system go-live.

Making HR Safe for the Future with with SAP HCM S/4HANA
In the context of the SAP Cloud strategy, SAP HCM ERP user companies are to change over to the cloud and, as a consequence, manage all HR processes in SAP SuccessFactors. However, the originally determined end-of-maintenance in the year 2025 was postponed at the urging of the DSAG (German SAP user group). The current roadmap now provides for an on-premise variant of the SAP ERP Human Capital Management module integrated in S/4HANA, which is to be available as of 2022.
Due to the future availability of the integrated HCM module, a carve-out into an independent HCM system is not mandatory any longer. However, the benefits of an exported HCM system still plead for a carve-out of the SAP HCM module. They include a significantly increased data security due to the reduced number of users in the independent HCM system with clear authorization structures for instance. Thanks to the independence of other SAP modules upon importing updates and features, an exported HCM system always guarantees state-of-the-art HR functionalities based on the current technology status. SAP optimization FIS/hrd ensures maximum security and efficiency in case of an SAP HCM carve-out.
Data Protection and Audit Compliance in SAP HCM
Data protection and security play a distinguished role in human resources due to personal data. For additional protection of sensitive employee data, which goes far beyond the authorization system in the SAP standard version, and an audit-proof development, FIS offers an SAP optimization for migration and revision in SAP HCM. Thanks to different components, SAP optimization FIS/hrd, which is individually adjusted to the respective enterprise, significantly increases the protection of personal information in the SAP system. The application is fully integrated in SAP HCM and rounds off the complete FIS package for advanced HR management in SAP HR.
Your additional benefits for SAP HCM due to the applications of the FIS/hrd product line:
- Audit compliance
- Traceability of all changes
- Time saving and high data quality
- All results can be compared (time evaluation, travel expenses, payrolls)
- Individual adjustment through Customizing
Mapping the Negotiated Extra Pay in SAP HCM
For a holistic mapping of the collective agreement of IG Metall and Elektro (industrial union of metal and electrical industry workers) concerning the negotiated extra pay (T-ZUG) in SAP HCM, FIS provides an efficient solution. Within the scope of the collective agreement, it is possible for employees to change a negotiated extra pay into a negotiated exemption period. It must be checked individually whether employees fulfill the entitlement conditions for the additional contribution. However, this is very cumbersome in the SAP HCM system.
By using the FIS consulting solution, the situation can be correctly mapped in SAP HCM. The entitlement can then be checked manually – provided that the required information has been maintained in the SAP HCM system – or automatically. Even company-specific prerequisites can be included into check and validation. If required, the information on the individually negotiated extra pay can also be accessed from payroll and time evaluation. In this way, the FIS solution ensures a holistic inclusion of the collective agreement into the HR processes and avoids administrative efforts.
