Optimize Key HR/Payroll Business Processes

Here’s how SpinifexIT drastically simplified the way WCS created & generated SAP HCM and SAP Payroll reports.

The Challenge

In 2015, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) decided to optimize and improve the way they created and generated SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Payroll reports for their 1,500 employees in the US. They needed an end-user friendly solution that can easily be used by their Business Analysts to create and publish reports required to support day-today operations. Spending on additional resources to create custom ABAP reports was not an option so WCS searched for the best solution that ultimately covered their requirements.

The Testimonial

“It’s a 10/10! Instead of spending 24 hours a month merging and reconciling 10 SAP reports, I just run one Easy Reporter report and it only takes 2 hours!”

– Michelle Mara, Payroll Director,
Wildlife Conservation Society

The Solution

SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter solution was chosen by WCS to address their HCM and Payroll reporting requirements. Easy Reporter has hundreds of infotypes and thousands of HCM and Payroll data fields that their Business Analysts can quickly add to their reports.

With Easy Reporter’s simple drag and drop interface, WCS employees can easily build and publish reports within minutes, without the need to learn ABAP.

They can also choose from over a hundred pre-delivered templates which include some of the most used and requested SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Payroll reports. WCS has been using Easy Reporter for over a year. To this day, Easy Reporter continues to save WCS hundreds of hours of work and user effort.

What makes Easy Reporter the solution of choice

Wildlife Conservation Society required several custom reports which are not possible to create using SAP’s standard ad-hoc query. SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter enabled their team to build more complex reports to their standard. Here are some examples of the reports WCS put together across all SAP HCM modules using Easy Reporter:

Time & Effort Breakdown GL

Vacation Reporting with Payroll Factors for accrual

Retirement Rosters

Bank to Direct Deposit Reconciliation

Department of Labor Reports by Facility

Group Life Costs

Federal Wage-Base Reporting

Efficiency and Accuracy Guaranteed

We used to have ABAP reports that I would run twice, and I’d get a different result each time. With Easy Reporter, I am confident that the data I get back is correct and accurate.

Emily Ramos, HR Manager
Wildlife Conservation Society

SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter fetches real time information from the company’s data sources. It can even include data elements from SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central should an organization decide to have a hybrid platform. Having the peace of mind that the data reflected on their reports are correct and updated, Wildlife Conservation Society’s HR manager adds:

With SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter, Wildlife Conservation Society avoided spending time, resources, and money to build expensive, complicated custom ABAP reports. They successfully eliminated the manual report building processes that take time and puts their data at risk, ultimately enabling them to spend more time on value-add activities that drive business results.
