SAP StreamWork, SAP Business ByDesign, SAP Business One, SAP Customer Relationship Management – a number of SAP offerings are already available in app form for iPhone and iPad (see also “Update on SAP Apps”). Now a new SAP app is here: iPeople, which enables managers in human resources and other areas to call up all of the key information on their employees while on the move. SAP developed the software in cooperation with sovanta AG.
While the SOVANTA iPeople app is free for download on Apple’s App Store, it only works in conjunction with SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM). The app delivers key performance indicators on individual employees, costs, and how human resources are organized, including 25 preconfigured KPIs that track numbers of full-time employees, turnover rates, the percentage of women in management positions, and employee satisfaction.
Users also have the option of sorting these KPI values and assigning them to various hierarchies while defining groups, displaying organizational details, and obtaining overviews of human resource structures at specific branch offices in different regions.
For security reasons, the necessary data that iPeople retrieves from SAP ERP HCM systems is initially stored in the back end before being made accessible to the user.
iPeople is available for download in English and German and requires iOS 4.2 or later. The app is just one of a series of mobile solutions HR managers can look forward to as enhancements for SAP ERP HCM in 2011.
