OREANDA-NEWS. July 31, 2013. Experts of Energy Consulting have attended the first forum of Russian-speaking SAP ERP HCM users. The forum was arranged by RSUG Group and held in Moscow.

Within the framework of this forum, HR and IT managers from leading Russian companies discussed topical issues concerning the automation of HR processes and the challenges of SAP HCM localization. In particular, they scrutinized the mechanisms for involvement of Russian users into the SAP HCM standard functionality development.

Vladimir Gvozdkov, Deputy Executive Director of Energy Consulting: "It is extremely important to take into account the views and wishes of large-scale SAP users, including the regional ones. Implementation of a range of specific user’s requirements within the frames of the SAP HCM standard functionality, including the ones in the legal area, enables to reduce the implementation time and the total cost of ownership".
