Project Description


Nexteer Automotive Poland Supports HR and Payroll Processes in the Cloud – the First Such Deployment in Poland

Nexteer Automotive Poland, a global manufacturer of advanced steering systems for the automotive industry, has deployed SAP Employee Central Payroll, a HR and Payroll Management Solution. The system supports HR, Payroll and work time domains. It is the 1st deployment of its type in Poland and only the 10th in Europe in which a cloud-based solution has also included a payroll domain. The project was delivered by Gavdi, the award-winning SAP implementation partner.

The goal of the project, implemented at Nexteer Automotive Poland was to deploy an integrated HR and payroll system as a single data repository. With process automation and modification, HR departments can work more effectively, can immediately address internal needs as well as prepare and calculate payroll components faster and more efficiently.

The deployment started in October 2017. HR and working time processes have been carried out in the new system since July 1, 2018, and the first remuneration was calculated and paid via the new system on August 10, 2018. We already see that the tool is intuitive and very convenient for us. All our company’s managers can now plan and settle working time faster, and more effectively, says Teresa Sielawa, HR Manager, Nexteer Automotive Poland.

The deployment consisted of launching the SuccessFactors Employee Central module and SAP Employee Central Payroll, the cloud-based payroll module integrated with SuccessFactors Employee Central (“Point-to-Point Replication”). The project also used SAP Cloud Platform and Gavdi’s proprietary applications for work time planning and settlement using the SAP Fiori interface. Currently, all HR and payroll processes are supported in a single, integrated, cloud-based environment, which substantially improves the company’s effectiveness and performance.

“The deployment of SAP Employee Central Payroll at Nexteer Automotive Poland is the first such deployment in Poland – both the scale and the scope of the project are groundbreaking for the region. Gavdi are proud to have been the partner of choice in this project.  In only a few months, Gavdi has enabled Nexteer to fully leverage SAP Employee Central Payroll’s potential, ensuring that Nexteer’s HR requirements have been met”, said Marcin Kleczka, Deputy Consulting Director, Gavdi Poland, and Project Manager at Nexteer Automotive Poland project.
