SINGAPORE – June 8, 2015 – Works Applications Singapore, a division of Works Applications, Japan’s largest ERP software provider, today announced that Kyocera Asia Pacific has selected its COMPANY ERP software for deployment across nine countries, including Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, and UAE. Kyocera Asia Pacific has selected the “COMPANY HCM and Payroll,” “COMPANY Workforce Self-Service” and “COMPANY Attendance Management” modules of the COMPANY ERP software to help streamline and automate human resources (HR) information across multiple systems and countries.
Kyocera Asia Pacific serves as the central base for the Asia Pacific region of the Kyocera Group, whose global operations deliver a diverse range of products, including advanced materials, components, devices, equipment, networks and services.
The HR-specific modules of the COMPANY ERP system being deployed allow Kyocera Asia Pacific to centrally store and manage human resources-related information such as employee evaluations and training information in a single, standardized system across the nine countries, thus reducing labor costs associated with manual data entry and paper files. Now, Kyocera Asia Pacific can create and analyze training plans easily, and optimize how HR-specific information is allocated globally.
Previously, many of the tasks associated with personnel and payroll management were performed by hand across the various locations in multiple, disparate systems and document formats. This made it time- and labor-intensive to create reports around information such as employee counts, manager lists and organization charts. Storing historical records and coordinating work on employee reviews and goal management were also time and labor-intensive, leaving little time for more strategic HR work such as talent management and recruitment.
A key factor in Works Applications’ selection by Kyocera Asia Pacific was its ability to provide localized implementation and maintenance support services, thereby eliminating potential communication gaps that can happen across various locations. Services can be provided in both Japanese and the local languages, reducing dependence on individuals for translation services and ensuring work succession continues smoothly.
