SAP Human Capital Management (HCM) is an integrated personnel management system that can be used to map the hierarchical structures of a company and the relationships contained therein, as well as to manage and develop employees. The SAP HCM module thus supports the HR department in both operational and strategic tasks.

Integration SAP HCM x shyftplan

By linking shyftplan and SAP HCM, employee master data and absence quotas (e.g. for vacations) can be synchronized. This ensures data transparency between planning and HR and significantly reduces manual effort. For example, the interface links workforce scheduling with time management in SAP HCM. At the touch of a button, duty rosters can be created that take into account statutory and collectively agreed requirements, vacation times and the individual working time preferences of the workforce.
