Baseline and project objectives

The problem was the inconsistent system environment for processing the personnel and payroll agenda in a group of plants in the Czech Republic. It was necessary to unify key processes across plants while maintaining the necessary local specifics of the solution. It was necessary to build a stable and reliable support system to ensure the operation of HCM systems and the continuous development of HCM systems, operational structure changes and HR processes in the group.


  • A single platform within the Continental Group for the joint solution and development of the HR and payroll agenda
  • Seamless operation of HCM systems across the Group, provided by Sabris specialists who have a deep understanding of the environment, issues and processes
  • Increased efficiency through better control and operational management of processes within the Group and at individual sites
  • Expansion of in-house expertise through the transfer of know-how from Sabris consultants


Sabris implemented SAP HCM systems for new Continental Group plants using various local payroll systems. The first stage included plants in Brandýs nad Labem, Adršpach, Trutnov, Jičín, Frenštát pod Radhoštěm and, as part of the unification of the payroll system on the SAP HCM platform, Barum Otrokovice, CTS, AZ Czech, Conti Tech and others. Continental appreciated the cooperation with Sabris in particular for its expertise and very good communication, thanks to which all implementations were carried out according to plan, on time and without complications. 

Sabris implemented the setup of the time and attendance system in SAP, the so-called positive time and attendance. In the other plants, the connection to various external time and attendance systems, according to the specific needs of the customer. 

Sabris provides long-term support for the Continental Group plants so that the correct functionality of the HCM system is ensured despite the differences and specifics of the internal processes set up within the individual companies. The result is the gradual centralization and unification of processes across plants and the connection to third-party systems used by individual plants. At the same time, the connection to the Group's global systems is underway. 

Sabris was also significantly involved in the Vitesco spin-off project. At the same time, it has become the main partner for the primary support of this new company.
