SAP Screen Personas

SAP Screen Personas provides a non-technical approach to modifying traditional SAP GUI screens at a no licence cost to SAP customers. SAP Screen Personas is based primarily on user centric enhancement, providing users with role-specific data in the right context, at the right time and in an intuitive format.

PSAP Screen Personas HR Solution - Example

The Problem

Productivity Implications — Users had to navigate through a number of differing screens in order to complete a single end to end business processes, often executing a number of replicable, system required keystrokes along the way that required a high degree of SAP HR transaction knowledge as a pre-requisite.

Under-usage — SAP HR data entry and lookup is often a complex, disjointed & time consuming process challenging users unnecessarily in the pursuit of task execution and process adherence. Users often had to make judgmental decisions on data entry and business relevance in the presence of a myriad of SAP data functions and fields, often not related to the task or business process being executed. User research during workshop collaboration found that data displayed over a number of different HR info-type screens increased the likelihood of user error incidence rate.

Risks to Data Integrity — Simple, self-explanatory screens reduce the risk of bad data entry incidence and reporting abnormalities. Mapped user options, logical to the task or process being executed can yield significant data integrity improvements. Simply changing the appearance or labeling of a key HR data field(s) within the business process can yield significant data validity & reliability improvements.

Overall Costs — Inefficiency (non value adding data entry), IT service help desk calls, data error rectification & user training all have significant, underlying business & user empathy costs. According to a business survey conducted by Experience Dynamics (2009) found an 80% reduction in help desk calls following user centric design implementation.
