scdsoft Vacation Planner

SAP HCM add-on solution for a team-oriented vacation planning

The scdsoft Vacation Planner supports the entire process of planning, requesting and approving a leave. Our add-on solution allows requesting a vacation quickly and easily as well as managing leave request among the entire team. The absence and attendance planning also takes home office, customer meetings, business trips and similar appointments into consideration.

Planning, requesting and approving of leave – fully integrated in SAP HCM – mobile with SAP Fiori & on-premise

SAP HCM integrated absence & attendance planning

The Vacation Planner allows an upstream vacation planning within the team. It uses the original data of the absence quota and validates it when planning and requesting new entries.

Variably available

Besides Web Dynpro ABAP (NWBC), the Vacation Planner is also applicable to SAP Fiori. This makes the entire process of planning, requesting and approving flexible and possible on a mobile device.

Team-oriented planning

In order to carry out a detailed planning within the division or the project team – depending on competences and qualifications – several teams can be created specifically. Thus, minimum staffing is assured, simultaneous absence of vacation replacements is prevented and conflicts are being validated as well.
