SAP has detailed the expansion of a deal with Open Text that will now include employee file management capabilities.
SAP will resell Open Text's solution for employee information management under the SAP Employee File Management application.
SAP says it’s had success reselling a number of Open Text solutions for document access, archiving and invoice management and this deal allows SAP to resell a solution that lets companies create digital records of all personnel-related documents integrated with the SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) solution.
"SAP Employee File Management can help transform the HR department from one that is primarily administrative into one that is primarily strategic," said Tom Roberts, Global VP, Software Solution Partners, SAP. "Instead of spending the majority of their time on labour-intensive administrative tasks, HR staff is freed up to focus more of their time and effort on recruitment, skills development and serving as a more productive resource for the operational areas they support.”
Open Text was recently awarded a 2010 SAP Pinnacle Award in the category of Global Software Solutions Partner of the Year.
