When it comes to the types of platforms that trains pull up to, Spanish railway company Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat Valenciana (FGV) is an expert in its field. But when FGV wanted a central information and service platform that would enable its employees to access the portal at any time, they trained their eyes on SAP NetWeaver Portal.
When implementing the portal, FGV had three objectives, according to José Antonio González Redondo, head of HR: “First, we wanted employees to be able to access the portal at any time. Second, we needed employees to be able to access self-services and commonly used applications for HR. Finally, we set out to drive active participation and collaboration among our employees.”
SAP Portal’s tight integration with SAP ERP enabled the automation of services in the company’s HR department, which means FGV employees can now access the latest information and self-services they need via the Internet, terminals, or the intranet. And they’ve formed online workgroups on the portal to share documents and exchange ideas to boot. Find out more in this new feature story from SAP Spectrum: Next Stop: Your Portal
