Budgeting & Planning: Gain Efficiency & Control over Human Capital Management
The staffing line item on the P&L is one of the largest line items yet managers often have very little access to that data.

SAP BusinessObjects Business Planning & Consolidation (BPC) gives companies the ability to fully automate, and retain control, of the budgeting process including the Human Capital area of the P&L. HR determines and controls the benefits and fringe calculations while managers are granted continued access to complete and detailed total cost information at the individual employee level, allowing for strategic and accurate budgeting.
