What is SAP Business ByDesign?
SAP Business ByDesign™ is an on-demand business management solution designed for dynamic small and midsized manufacturing, distribution and service organizations that want the benefits of large-scale business applications without the need for a large IT infrastructure.
Provided as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, SAP Business ByDesign enables preconfigured process best practices for managing financials, customer relationships, human resources, projects, procurement and the supply chain .
Why choose SAP Business ByDesign?
See Clearly: With SAP Business ByDesign, a single integrated system gives you real-time visibility into all aspects of your operations.
Get Real-Time Analytics: SAP Business ByDesign helps you gather and synthesize internal and external data, then uses comprehensive business intelligence and reporting solutions to drive transparency and further accountability. Easy-to-use reports and powerful, embedded analytics enhance productivity and collaboration, increase transparency, and deliver crucial insight into all areas of your business. Use executive dashboards to track key performance indicators (KPIs) such as supplier performance, capacity utilization, and customer profitability.
Finite Resources. Infinite Demands: IT rarely tops the funding list, but the demands aren’t exactly easing. How can you do more with less? You need an infrastructure that runs the business – whether that means offering support across time zones or complying with new accounting regulations. That’s when outsourcing to SAP makes sense. Let go of the constant worries about infrastructure stability, equipment obsolescence, and support requirements. With SAP Business ByDesign, you can keep up-front infrastructure costs low, and put your resources to work on more important things, such as implementing ideas that help move the company forward. SaaS significantly reduces equipment and support costs and gives you great software for an affordable monthly licensing fee.
Cut Admin Time with Automation: You spend way too much time on manual tasks and inefficient operations. Multiple systems waste time and resources on rekeying data – and increase the likelihood of mistakes. SAP Business ByDesign keeps it simple and accurate: you enter data into the system only once. You can automate and streamline core processes and cut the time it takes to process invoices and delivery reports, prepare schedules, and create proposals. SAP Business ByDesign provides integrated operational processes that improve productivity and increase transparency, such as:
- Automated quote generation and processing
- Automated and flexible pricing
- Product availability checking
- Demand planning
- Exception processing
The result? You save time, increase cash flow, and ultimately spend more time on what’s important to your business.
The Only constant is Change: The business you support is rapidly changing. Demand is growing, the competition is encroaching, and customer requirements are a moving target. As your business evolves, business processes become more complex and transaction volume increases. Your ERP system needs to do more than keep pace – it needs to support the business and drive informed decision making. The on-demand SAP Business ByDesign application can adjust with your business model over time, and support growth regardless of IT constraints.
Improve Management and Financial Accounting: Delinquent receivables, reporting delays, dwindling cash flow… as your business takes off, it gets harder and harder to account for and report on financial and operational results. SAP Business ByDesign gives you an integrated accounting system that quickly, easily, and accurately generates the financial reports – both managerial and statutory – you need to inform decisions and ensure compliance. A centralized closing cockpit and automated reconciliations, accruals, and inventory valuation further streamline the financial close.
