HumanConcepts Transition Manager 4.4 Certified by SAP as Powered by SAP NetWeaver(R)

Delivers Best-Practice-Based Organizational Restructuring to Customers via Interoperability With SAP(R) Solutions

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - HumanConcepts, a leading provider of workforce decision support solutions, today announced that its Transition Manager 4.4 product has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform.

The SAP® Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that HumanConcepts Transition Manager 4.4 integrates with SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI) technology to exchange critical data with instances of SAP Business Suite software. This was certified via the NW-XI-CNT 3.0 interface scenario.

Transition Manager 4.4, now integrated with SAP solutions, delivers to customers a platform for managing voluntary and involuntary employee separations resulting from reorganizations, restructurings and reductions in force. It facilitates organizational agility by increasing visibility, improving decision making and reducing cycle time around employee redeployment and separations. With Transition Manager, organizations can more quickly adapt to changing market conditions and address strategic opportunities.

"While HumanConcepts already has an extensive list of clients using its solutions with SAP applications, SAP certification reinforces for our customers that Transition Manager integrates with SAP applications," said Martin Sacks, CEO of HumanConcepts. "By integrating HumanConcepts Transition Manager with SAP solutions, customers also using SAP applications can now leverage a powerful platform for achieving organizational agility."

Used by many of the world's largest companies, Transition Manager delivers a dramatic and proven return on investment. It has been credited with preventing millions of dollars in legal claims, substantially reducing administrative costs and errors, delivering financial savings and improving the overall employee experience. More importantly, it ensures that transitions resulting from M&A or reorganization are completed quickly and in compliance, so the organization retains key talent and returns quickly to business as usual, mitigating risk while realizing merger synergies or new opportunities sooner.

Delivered via a SaaS, Web-based platform, Transition Manager supports fact-based decision making, produces real-time reporting and automates administrative processes. As a result of the certified integration with SAP NetWeaver, Transition Manager can now connect directly to the SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) solution to extract and update organizational information.
