Singapore – June 20, 2017 – OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTEX), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced its global reseller agreement with SAP (NYSE: SAP). As part of the agreement, SAP will resell OpenText Extended ECM as SAP® SuccessFactors® Extended Enterprise Content Management by OpenText. Designed exclusively for SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, the new cloud-based solution helps organizations manage human resources (HR) and employee documents from generation to disposition in a secure and compliant manner. Available immediately, the solution helps businesses to improve organizational performance and increase HR efficiency and productivity by centralizing the way they digitalize, create, store, manage and access employee documents.

“More than any other department, HR professionals are responsible for a vast amount of information which is pivotal to the organization,” said Adam Howatson, chief marketing officer at OpenText. “Helping companies manage their essential employee records through a single, cloud-based source is a significant step for companies wanting to more effectively manage an increasingly global, digital workforce. SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM by OpenText offers HR professionals a solution uniquely designed to help reduce the time and complexity associated with document management.”  

With SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM, customers will be better able to manage employee documents according to country- and region-specific requirements, more easily locate information through powerful search functionality, and generate HR documents and employee correspondence through the availability of set templates, content and pre-defined workflows. Integrated within SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, the solution helps ensure that relevant employee file content is readily accessible to HR professionals, managers and employees within the context of the appropriate HR business processes and workflows.

"HR digital transformation is about removing the many manual tasks that are tedious and complicated, and that expose the organization to security and compliance risks,” said Yvette Cameron, senior vice president of Strategy at SAP SuccessFactors. "As workforces expand and businesses become increasingly global, HR cannot afford to spend hundreds of hours each year manually storing, managing and retrieving employee documents. With SAP SuccessFactors Extended ECM, we are fulfilling our commitment to helping our customers achieve efficiency and accuracy as they operate on a global scale."
