ALE connection between HR and R/3 system

Hi Experts,

Scenario: Salaries are paid using HR (GPS system) and postings are to be made in FI R/3 system. For this we need to configure ALE . Is it a good option.

With the belief that we are going ahead with ALE, how do we trace which message types and partner profiles need to be used? I believe we need to get the distribution model also in place... do let me know what all needs to be considered apart from cost centers and company codes ?

Thanks
