As the process owner of Injury Management, you would understand the importance of having an injury management solution in place to track and manage workplace injuries. When the other option is to manage it manually the advantages are clear. However, when you operate in an enterprise that uses SAP there are obvious benefits available from integrating your injury management processes into those SAP business systems. This is where native integration of SafetySuite into SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Payroll can provide significant advantages. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits of integrating your injury management software with SAP Payroll, including real-time data access, seamless collaboration, compliance with regulations, cost savings, and an improved employee experience.
One of the most significant advantages of the native integration of SafetySuite into SAP Payroll is the ability to access data in real-time. With native integration, SafetySuite has direct access into the payroll results tables which allow us to calculate an accurate PIAWE value automatically. There is no need to run extract reports and do the math manually. Its quick, accurate and compliant with the award rules and conditions. Data is moved between SafetySuite and SAP Payroll so that we have the data needed to calculate incapacity payments (such as actual worked hours) and we can seamlessly provide payroll with the wage types and absence types that need to be paid. It operates as a single system.
Another significant advantage of native integration into SAP Payroll is the ability to collaborate seamlessly. To manage an injury, information is required from multiple sources such as the Incident Owner, Injury Case Manager, Claims Manager, Timesheet Owner, Payroll Team and so forth. Having all these teams share the same data enables seamless collaboration between departments, leading to better communication, faster response times, and improved employee care.
Compliance with Regulations
Compliance with regulations is critical when it comes to managing workplace injuries. Failure to comply with regulations can result in fines and legal action. With the native integration SafetySuite has into SAP Payroll, compliance is easier to achieve. Award & EBA rules are configured into both solutions to ensure that precise calculations for incapacity payments are made and processed. All the possible variations that might occur such as working across multiple days or pay periods etc are all considered, ensuring the employee is always correctly paid.
This saves significant time and reduces the risk of errors, ensuring your injured workers are respected and your business stays compliant.
Native integration into SAP Payroll can also provide cost savings. Extracting payroll data to perform manual calculations, manual entry of those values and checking elements such as actual time worked, comparisons to RTW plans and so forth is time-consuming and highly prone to human error. With native integration, injury, time, absence and payroll and data is automatically transferred between systems eliminating the need for manual processes. This creates real cost savings within the Injury Management team.
Improved Employee Experience
Finally, native integration into SAP Payroll introduces an improved employee experience. When an injury occurs, employees want to know that their employer is taking care of them and paying them appropriately. With an injury management solution like SafetySuite, you know that this is the case, driving increased employee satisfaction and improved morale.
At the end of the day, a comprehensive solution that integrates with other business systems is critical for managing workplace injuries effectively. Native integration into SAP Payroll for your injury management software will provide significant advantages for your business. Real-time data, seamless collaboration, compliance with regulations, cost savings, increased productivity and improved employee experience are just some of the benefits available.
If your business relies on the efficiencies provided by SAP enterprise systems, then choose injury management software that can deliver native integration into key systems like SAP Payroll to further sweat the asset. By working with a vendor such as SafetySuite, we can help to understand your business's unique needs and can provide a comprehensively integrated solution, ensuring that your injury management software provides the benefits you need to care for your injured employees and your business compliant.
