Full integration into your system landscape

SAP, Workday and SuccessFactors

New power for your ERP systems - with integrated business tools from ESCRIBA

Strong software is the foundation for collaborative and efficient work. But even comprehensive ERP systems, such as SAP or Workday, do not offer all the functions you need in your daily business. We add your desired functions to your ERP or other existing systems - through apps from our software catalog or apps developed specifically for you. The best part? Our optimized interface management fully integrates individual and prefabricated apps into your existing system landscape. With ESCRIBA, you can overcome software boundaries and obtain maximum control over your processes.

We are Enterprise-ready! ESCRIBA is your contact for SAP / ERP extensions

Even beyond the German-speaking area, companies know ESCRIBA as a manufacturer of forward-looking no- and low-code solutions in the field of document creation and service management.

But we know: Apps and software solutions must not only be convincing in their own right, but also fit seamlessly into an existing enterprise structure. The majority of our customers already work with established systems for data management, such as SAP ERP, SAP S/4HANA, SAP HCM, SuccessFactors or Workday, which cover a large part of the core business. While developing new pioneer software, we therefore always have the integration into larger backends in mind.

We take care of the integration, you enjoy the results.

You don’t have to choose between the advantages of an ERP system and an agile solution.

ESCRIBA blurs the boundaries between the two worlds and inspires you with deeply integrated no- and low-coding solutions.

The link between ESCRIBA software and existing backend systems is the ESCRIBA Integration Server (EIS). The EIS acts as a data hub that can read, process and even write back information between our apps and ERP systems. For example, if SAP HCM master data is adjusted in an ESCRIBA app, the associated record in SAP is automatically updated. EIS also allows multiple backend integrations to be used simultaneously in one application. Hybrid scenarios of on-premise and cloud solutions are also possible without any problems. Integration is therefore not just an empty phrase with us, but a concept that opens up endless possibilities for you.

With the help of our clever integration approach, we can provide excellent extensions for SAP On-premise, S/4HANA, SuccessFactors, Workday, and many other systems that are not included in the scope of functions by default. This enables you to better cover your individual business case, fully exploit digitization potential and secure competitive advantages.
Alternatively, ESCRIBA can act as a standalone backend system and replace your data-holding systems. Market-leading systems such as SAP and Workday are true powerhouses, but in day-to-day business, most departments only use a small portion of the full functionality – at full cost. A custom solution from ESCRIBA that can do exactly what you need is more cost effective, performant and manageable.

ESCRIBA is your certified partner for SAP enhancement implementation

SAP is the leading ERP system in Germany and is now used by 40% of all German companies. Despite the enormous scope of SAP, many users want add-ons and functions that are not included in the factory. Our innovative SAP tools based on no- and low-code are therefore naturally deeply integrated into SAP – regardless of whether you use SAP on-premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid scenario.

In addition to implementing pre-built extensions, we can also develop individual solutions for SAP. Our ESCRIBA Integration Server (EIS) is successfully certified by SAP for HANA Cloud.

Data maintenance in SAP made easy

ESCRIBA can read and write all data from SAP via its bidirectional interface. In SAP, every existing data field can be read by ESCRIBA and even edited by means of data write-back. The data originates either from entries in the wizard dialog or from calculations with existing backend or manually entered data. Thus it is possible for us to program depth-integrated extensions for SAP without causing data chaos or duplicate entries.

ESCRIBA is particularly helpful in contract management but also for other documents in order to be able to process the procedures.“

Especially when it comes to document management and digital processes, business tools from ESCRIBA such as HR service management and automated document creation are indispensable.

These companies trust in ESCRIBA

Fast. Faster. No- and low-code.

Existing systems into which you have to integrate new things make IT innovations notoriously difficult. The path from the idea to the digital product is much longer, technical trifles slow down innovation. Fortunately, there is ESCRIBA’s no- and low-code platform.

Our applications are based on our own software platform. Using this environment, we can develop our software up to 5x faster than with traditional coding.

Apps from ESCRIBA are less error-prone because our developers can reuse proven modules and code sections over and over again. Eliminating redundant steps and keeping our teams agile leads to shorter release cycles and better results. Over time, this has allowed us to build an impressive portfolio of ready-to-use products for a wide variety of departments. No-coding elements allow departments to make changes to the software themselves and tailor it to their personal needs.

ESCRIBA is the solution if you cannot decide between a classic ERP system and an agile solution. With deeply integrated no- and low-coding solutions in SAP, SuccessFactors and Workday, ESCRIBA blurs the lines between the two worlds.

Generate digital documents from SAP, SuccessFactors and Workday

DDocuments are still one of the most important points of contact with customers, employees and partners. That is why our EDS (ESCRIBA Document Services) is particularly strong in all processes that involve documents. This innovative module can be used together with all our ERP extensions – thus we consistently avoid media breaks. Benefit from our experience from more than 300 projects in the context of ERP systems and document management.

Create any form of correspondence – whether contracts, documents, mails, attachments, brochures – highly automated: ideally with a single button click from the ERP system. Of course, multiple systems, whether on-premise or cloud-based, can be connected simultaneously and the data from the different systems can be mixed in the document.

In ESCRIBA SAP Generator, the event-driven and free generation of individual and quantity documents from any external system takes place. The document generation and management is available to the end user via an interface integrated in the SAP GUI.

Documents are automatically assigned to various persons and processes in the system, for example, by assigning them to the employee concerned, to the SAP user creating the document, or even to contracts or accounts in customer relationship management.

Digital document management has never been easier.

Integration Software made by ESCRIBA – The EIS

The ESCRIBA Integration Server (EIS) was developed to connect ESCRIBA to external systems and to transfer data. The EIS is used to manage document orders, to obtain data from any external (third-party) systems and to store the generated documents – either in a separate data storage or via open interfaces in an electronic file or storage solution.

The web-based User Manager for user and role administration is available for the EIS connections. Users can only perform the actions and tasks for which they are authorized. This protects your data from unauthorized access and ensures a high compliance standard at all times.

In addition to SAP, the EIS can connect to the following external systems:

  • SuccessFactors
  • Workday
  • Relational databases via JDBC (e.g. Oracle).
  • Digital files
  • File adapters (for Excel files, for example)
  • HR software such as Kidicap and d.vinci
  • Other applications via web services

The connection of other data sources can be done on request. Feel free to contact us for an individual consultation.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that ESCRIBA Integration Server meets the guidelines for operation in the Business Technology Platform (BTP). Partner applications built on the BTP provide cloud-native functionality for SAP Saas solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Fieldglass®, and SAP S/4HANA®.

ESCRIBA as SAP / ERP alternative

Most service organizations use ERP systems to support their daily work. Often, companies opt for comprehensive tools such as SAP, SuccessFactors or Workday. In our experience, however, these suites are often oversized, with companies paying the full license and operating fees but using only a fraction of the functionality.

In the past, ESCRIBA has successfully replaced ERP systems in individual departments or company-wide. To do this, we review your software portfolio and replace costly software with reliable and cost-effective no- and low-code solutions. These are tailored exactly to your processes and are easy to use and adapt even for non-IT staff. Especially for small and medium sized companies ESCRIBA software can be a worthwhile alternative to the classic top dogs in the software market.
