SAP-based solutions for all industries
Companies in all industries use Circle Unlimited’s solutions. Their requirements are quite varied, however due to the solutions’ flexibility, they can be customized easily. With cuSmarText document management, users manage all documents digitally, clearly, and so they are revision-proof – in all company areas. An example is the HR file: It offers an easy search function, automatic document creation, intuitive Web interfaces, and access rights that can be defined individually, in addition to a direct connection to the SAP system and a connection to SAP Success Factors. The HR file has an integrated scan function with OCR text recognition, automatic document creation – among other things of certificates and employment contracts – as well as the use of digital signatures.
Document management also includes a multifaceted electronic purchasing and customer file with extensive functionalities, which can help automate your everyday work. The purchasing file supports the entire supplier relationship management (SRM), for example with automatic creation and evaluation of documents and questionnaires, monitoring of dates and deadlines, and continuous risk assessment.
All contracts company-wide at a glance
With cuContract, the contract management solution, users can manage all types of contracts clearly and so they are revision-proof across their whole life cycle – from contract creation to monitoring, on through to archiving and controlled destruction. With revision-proof electronic files, the contracts (employment contracts, service contracts, rental agreements, etc.) and contract-relevant documents are available to employees at any time with just a click. In addition, the date and deadline agent monitors contract terms and reminds you in due time to end a contract or negotiate more favorable conditions. For all contracts, it is possible to simplify and shorten workflows with digital signatures.
