EPI-USE, your global SAP HR/Payroll and S/4HANA Specialist.

EPI-USE is a member of Group Elephant, a global group of boutique services firms and software companies, employing 3,700 people in 42 countries. Largely employee-owned, the Group is a mini conglomerate comprising circa 20 trading brands, the best known of which is EPI-USE, the world’s largest and most experienced independent SAP HR/Payroll specialist. EPI-USE has emerged as a leader in designing, building, and implementing Cloud-based, hybrid and on-premises HR/Payroll systems for large, complex multinational corporations and public sector agencies.

In addition to the SAP-focused businesses, Group Elephant includes separate boutique brands specializing in business critical, non-core software and services businesses, traditionally focused on MNCs and large public sector agencies. The Group has services partnerships with all of the hyperscalers, but with an emphasis on AWS.

Group Elephant is characterized by a primary strategic imperative in terms of which it goes ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ in its day-to-day activities, and operates through a hybrid business model through which it funds and operates non-profits and impact investment businesses. Primary focus areas are the preservation of at-risk Elephants and Rhinos, through the economic upliftment of rural People in areas adjacent to the threatened species, or another definition of ‘ERP’, if you will. The hybrid business model has been the subject of two University of California Berkeley Haas School of Business case studies, in 2016 and 2021.

Beyond Corporate Purpose:
Elephants, Rhinos & People (‘ERP’)

EPI-USE’s primary imperative is to go ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ in day-to-day activities. Rather than implementing a traditional corporate social responsibility program and simply donating funds to charities, with ‘Beyond Corporate Purpose’ we operate a professionalized, institutional non-profit delivery capability, the primary focus of which is the protection and conservation of Elephants and Rhinos in the wild, through an unusual strategy based on the economic upliftment of impoverished rural People in areas adjacent to the threatened species, or another definition of ‘ERP’, if you will.

To ensure successful engagement, EPI-USE channels one percent (1%) of revenues to projects in our not-for-profit zone. We have also employed a corporate social responsibility partner who manages the application of these funds and provides reporting.
