Display of project resources by role
The project performance (hours worked on a case file or internal project) is easy to enter via CATS (Cross Applicati¬on Time Sheet), not
only for internal staff but also for subcontractors and is subsequently released by the partner or attorney in charge. Only then, the file
is charged and the client will be billed. Furthermore, additional features of Employee Self Service, such as the recording of absence
times, order processes including the respective authorization workflows, or the processing of travel costs, are optional.

management of external serviCe Providers
Beside the planning of internal staff, the integration of external service providers and experts is becoming increasingly important.
Controlled adminstrative handling via internal purchase requisitions, and the orders generated from them, guarantee, that the sub-
sequent invoice for the services rendered, can be verified quickly and allocated to the correct account. The complete process is inte-
grated into controlling and can be easily tracked by the user.
