SKF optimizes personnel processes with Wincor Nixdorf self-service solutions

(PresseBox) (Paderborn, ) SKF, one of the world s leading suppliers of products, solutions and services in the area of rolling bearings, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems, has awarded Wincor Nixdorf a contract to install 50 kiosk terminals at company locations across Germany. Via the terminal solution, commercial employees without PCs will be able to access information and other corporate processes.

The terminals will be used for the first time this month when the annual employee survey is conducted online for the first time at SKF sites in Germany. The necessary infrastructure was implemented within a relatively short six-month period at the following locations: SKF GmbH in Schweinfurt, Lüchow and Mühlheim; SKF Sealing Solutions GmbH in Leverkusen; SKF Linearsysteme GmbH in Schweinfurt and Meckesheim; and Willy Vogel AG in Berlin and Hockenheim.

Access to information and knowledge for all employees underscores SKF s commitment as a knowledge engineering company to deploy innovative and modern systems across the company.

In a further step, the SKF service portal will be developed into a full-fledged employee self-services system. In the future, employees will be able to use a number of services directly at the kiosk terminal, including access to both generally available and password-protected information from the human resources department. They will be able to manage a number of routine processes themselves, such as changing master data and bank account data, printing forms and processing vacation requests. The employee self-service solution will help SKF optimize its HR processes and reduce administration.

Initially, all 6,500 employees at SKF locations in Germany will receive access to the information terminals. Worldwide, SKF employs around 43,000 people at sites in more than 130 countries.

SKF selected the Wincor Nixdorf system because of its ergonomic, easy-to-use design. An additional feature of the system is the printer with an integrated blackening unit that makes confidential information visible. Furthermore, the Wincor Nixdorf solution is specially designed to operate in a manufacturing environment; it is robust and offers a high level of protection against environmental influences.

As part of the tender process, Wincor Nixdorf was also able to show a number of reference manufacturing customers and decades of experience in international rollouts in the banking and retails sectors.

Wincor Nixdorf is a global market leader for the setting of complete solutions in the area of employee self-service.
