SAP personnel file completely integrated, comfortable & favourable


Personnel files often contain numerous and different documents which require a central as well as a digital management and filing.

The installation of a new DMS system for the electronic personnel file would be time-, cost- and management-consuming, because the implementation, structuring and the constantly comparison with the central SAP system would be necessary.

Why not make usage of the already existing SAP system for the filing and management of electronic personnel files without detours?

In cooperation with our technology partner top flow GmbH inPuncto offers a comfortable, fast and favourable solution for the management of electronic personnel files directly in SAP HCM (HR).

Because of the transfer of personnel data and authorizations of SAP, the security of sensitive data is guaranteed from the beginning and usual access rights are regarded.

Old stock files as well as new incoming documents of different types are automatically transfered to your system:

The files are automatically linked to the corresponding electronic personnel file in SAP – fast and free of mistakes.

Directly out of the electronic personnel file, different personnel documents can be created very comfortably at the touch of a button.


Feature overview

Reassign documents

The creation of appointments and tasks from the SAP system is also supported.

Document preview and in-place editing of Office documents

This function allows you to display individual documents within the (partial) structure tree as a document preview. If necessary, you can easily edit Office documents, including by using dynamic sets of rules and thereby track all changes through chronological versioning and content version comparison.

Local check-in and check-out

Local check-in and check-out of PDF documents including comment function.

Mail merge function and bulk printing

The mass document generation (mail merge function) is available to you from SAP.

Note function

In order not to forget anything when keeping and managing the personnel files, you can add reminders and messages to each eFile by clicking on the note icon, edit existing file notes or add a due date. With these notes, the corresponding eFile is displayed at the desired time, so that punctual processing is guaranteed. You can also use the “Appointment tracking” tab to display all upcoming due dates.

Date function

All documents are saved with a creation date and a filing date, which makes it easier to keep and manage personnel files.
