When an outdated software solution needs to be replaced, many companies hastily start an implementation project and then wonder why the new software does not meet their expectations. The Ingolstadt Hospital took the first step before this actually second one and thus laid the foundation for a future-ready HR information system.
A total of 22 clinics and institutes belong to the large Bavarian hospital. With more than 3,000 employees and 1,166 beds and therapy places, the hospital represents medical competence, first-class care and individual support. Nationwide, the Ingolstadt Hospital has established a reputation as a family-friendly and innovative company by introducing modern working time models. Ingolstadt's second largest employer also has an important position in the region as a training company, which trains young people in various medical professions in cooperation with the Ingolstadt Health Vocational Training Center.
In order to be able to meet the high demand for well-trained and competent personnel on the one hand, and to meet the needs of the employees on the other hand - four generations work together in the clinics and institutes - the Ingolstadt Clinic emphasizes lean and effective processes in HR. These should involve as little administrative effort as possible. "We had reached our software solution's limits, for example in the areas of e-recruiting or training management," explains Renate Frischkorn, head of the Human Resources, IT and Organization department. Thus, the existing IT solution is to be replaced step by step by SAP and extended by additional HR processes and functions. Moreover, the clinic considers it important to be provided with holistic, integrative IT support. Since SAP is already being in use in Controlling, Materials Management and Finance, this new software solution is to be realized accordingly by means of SAP ERP Human Capital Management (HCM).
