Success story Detecon

Complying with EU-Directive requirements automatically

How Detecon complies with EU-Directive obligations and how its employees benefits using the neylux A1 solution.

The tightening of EU-Directive guidelines a few years ago prompted Detecon to take on the challenge of lengthy paper processes—with the help of SAP Concur and neylux.

The collaborative project with Detecon had several stages. It started with the native integration for booking travel expenses in SAP FI through Concur workflow adjustments and support issues, up to the integration of Concur Request with a visa service provider.

In practice, the structure of the solutions looks like this: The Concur travel request workflow (adapted to internal travel policies) initiates the follow-up processes of the neylux connector. This gathers relevant travel data and retrieves employee master data from SAP HCM. Travel data and employee master data for each employee are delivered to the visa service provider via SFTP file transfer (including access to the electronic personnel file). Depending on the request, either an A1 certificate or EU reporting obligation is applied for and sent directly to the traveling employee after issuance.

The developed solution has clear advantages for both the company and the traveling employees. While employees enjoy a fast, easy, and user-friendly travel request process, the company can provide a GDPR-compliant, legally compliant, and digital process. The internal request approval workflow is expanded to include a digital interface to a visa service provider, which handles A1/EU reporting and visa applications.
