Build a Recruitment Travel & Expense Management Dashboard

Build a recruitment travel & expense management report with SAP API Business Hub

Overview

Recruiting new talent frequently requires reimbursing some or all of the interview candidate’s travel expenses. The overall cost associated with candidates’ travel could be difficult to predict and manual reimbursement processes make the impact of recruitment travel difficult to manage. Automating recruiting expense processes will help managers to reduce confusion and provide increased visibility over costs.

With SAP Cloud Platform and SAP API Business Hub, organizations can discover and consume digital content packages with APIs, pre-packaged integrations, and sample apps from SAP and select partners. This dashboard consumes APIs from SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Concur to integrate workforce planning and talent data with travel & expense data to automate the reimbursement process for recruitment. Using sandbox APIs for the SaaS solutions helps developers build the PoC quickly without having to know the user ID, password or authentication mechanism for each of these systems, or to do additional configuration.

The solution diagram above illustrates a basic architectural pattern for extending cloud solutions like SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Concur, to improve the visibility into job candidates’ travel expense, using the SAP Cloud Platform on the Cloud Foundry environment and APIs from the SAP API Business Hub.
