Kaba AG’s generic solution portfolio incorporates access management, workforce management, physical access systems and specialised lock & key systems (including cylinders).
This extensive profile is targeted at businesses of any size, across a variety of sectors (with government, enterprise and retail seen as key) and available via the Company’s reseller network. The network incorporates both established representative operational offices and/or support structures to contribute towards the success of projects.
At the Mastering SAP HR and Payroll Conference hosted in Johannesburg in April, leadership representing both companies emphasised the benefits of SAP infrastructure integration and application.
Kaba’s Head of Product Management for Access and Workforce Management Peter Hauser underlined the inherent qualities of Kaba’s solution portfolio in helping businesses address challenges in successfully mastering workforce management tasks.
“We have been a SAP partner since 1988 and with more than 1400 SAP customers,,we have the resources and market presence to offer the level of support required for our global customers.”
How effectively and efficiently a business communicates with its staff has a huge impact on profit margins. The information required to manage can include time and attendance bookings, safety briefing, visitor registration, message centre, and much more.
Kaba B-inspired is a simple and flexible information system that enables the user to optimise communication with personnel. It consists of communication terminals and apps customised to the exact needs of the user.
These solutions and relevant benefits tie in very well with SAP HCM.
Referring to Kaba’s SAP-focused campaign tailored around professional time recording, access control and in the provision of customer-specific information and applications inherent within SAP solutions, Hauser says the intention is to leverage off interactive information sessions, employee self service and other initiatives to gather feedback and tap into user experience.
The Campaign is scheduled for 2015 and will involve ongoing discussion with the market, both in terms of technology and in application.
“We are looking very closely at bringing the value of cloud-based access control and workforce management applications within SAP to the market… app development, mobility and the Cloud are integral to our development platform offering going forward,’ Hauser stated.
While economics and price fluctuation according to exchange rates continue to represent a challenge to continued and widespread adoption, Hauser is adamant that Kaba, via its partnerships with the likes of AWM360, will add value to the domestic market.
Both AWM360 and Kaba AG acknowledge that access control and workforce management represent high active areas of business technology that continue to grow in relevance.
