Workforce Authorization Management (WAM)

Dassian WAM helps you manage personnel and authorize labor charging and travel expense assignments in your SAP® environment, without using SAP HR or cost center organizational assignments.

Flexible workgroups allow project and department managers to work from personalized resource lists. Personnel authorization for time and expense entry is as easy as drag and drop. WAM validates their time charges and travel expenses in real-time. You can also use this highly configurable solution to control exceptions such as overtime by validating absence and attendance types. WAM can be used on a subset of your company’s labor activities or applied to all time charging.
