SAP Business ByDesign
- Introducing SAP Business ByDesign
- Agenda: Why an Integrated ERP Suite? Key Benefits of SAP Business ByDesign and Our Commitment to You. As you can imagine, we get to talk to a lot of businesses at various stages of development. And through those conversations, we have found that there are many organizations who are at an interesting crossroads.
- Manual processes and disjointed systems inhibit growth
- Businesses are growing, but technology is constraining that growth, instead of enabling it. Critical parts of the their business—like their financial system--don't connect to other critical parts of their business—like their inventory system. Or they're using lots of spreadsheets and manual workflows to try to either manage a process or bring data from one system to another. As a result, they can't see what's happening across the entire business and how the data from one function intersects with the next. They don't have a single view into everything they need. They can't respond to competitive pressures or new opportunities. They can't collaborate with partners and suppliers—or share information investors need. And of course, they can't deal with changes—like acquisitions, mergers or IPOs—or scale as fast or effectively as they need to. In other words, their systems are constraining the true potential of the business, and traditional IT solutions are too expensive and too slow.

It has built in processes (e.g. order to cash or procure to pay etc.) for everything from finance and sales to product management and purchasing. This means you'll be up and running FAST with the best in class processes driving your business. No endless configuration of every aspect of the system like other solutions require. And, you can put 40 years of business process experience to work for your organization and focus on what you do best. That means you don't have to spend time developing or rethinking back-office processes for HR, finance or any other part of the business. Plus, BYD is quickly configurable, using basic business questions to adapt the solution to fit your business.

BYD features simple, clear pricing, so you know what your costs are going to be for the duration of your contract and build your budget accordingly. No surprises and no extra costs—just a clear understanding of what you are paying. Finally, BYD has an intuitive, easy-to-use, modern user interface – which is consistent across the entire suite. BYD is also natively mobile friendly and responsive for all devices, so that you can access you system and data anywhere, anytime. Because it is hosted in the cloud, no matter where you log in, you will always have the most up to date information. And we offer a series of targeted apps – included as part of the suite, designed specifically for day-to-day tasks like time and expense reporting, project management and analytics.
- Embedded analytics, right out of the box
- Insightful: Analytics, however are not an add-on, they are a part of every process, so you can get full transparency into every aspect of your operation and the insight to make business-growing decisions. Because analytics are embedded into every process, you can share and see data across functions and departments and arm your team with the more accurate, timely and complete insight they need to make informed decisions
You can give users an easy, clear view of the metrics that matter for their specific roles, showing issues and opportunities that require attention right from their dashboards, so they can quickly see what needs to be done and take action. And you can tap into more than 500 standard reports, dozens of pre-built KPIs and Excel integration—all right out of the box—so you can bring transparency to the business immediately and give your team the tools they need to easily analyze and share data.

We have a rich ecosystem of partners to support you and a flexible solution to meet your specific needs. You can also start using one function – like financials/accounting as a foundation, and then add another module later on as your needs grow. Or, you can integrate with Best of Breed solutions you already use or plan to use. BYD also scales -- from 20 to 10,000 users and allows you to easily re-configure processes, so you can add more employees as business grows, quickly adapt how you work as business changes and always keep your business moving forward.
- Connect to what you’re using today and what may come next

With robust analytics, you will keep data moving across your company even as your company grows and changes. For example, one partner, Elixir solutions, integrated Business ByDesign’s CRM module with Hubspot to improve operational efficiency around lead management. For example, based on pre-defined criteria outlined by a customer's marketing department, Hubspot can be automatically triggered to create leads in BYD for sales rep follow-up. This sort of integration improves the effectiveness of the customer's sales organization. Moreover, when you combine this with the power of BYD's built-in analytics, the customer is better able to understand it's customer journey and diagnose what is working well, what needs to be optimized and overall ROI.
