SAP HCM time management

In selected Continental Group plants, Sabris set up the SAP attendance system (“positive time recording method”).
In other plants Sabris connected various external attendance systems according to the specific needs of the customer.

Long-term solution support

Sabris has provided long-term support for Continental Group’s plants to ensure that the HCM system works properly regardless of the differences and specific features of the internal processes in individual companies.
The result is the gradual centralisation and unification of processes across plants and connection to third-party systems used by individual plants. At the same time, the connection to the Group’s global systems is underway.
