SAP ByDesign Overview

Marketing
By helping you better manage your marketing and pre-sales activities including market development, lead generation, and lead qualification, the SAP Business ByDesign solution gives you more control of your sales and service deals.

Manufacturing, Warehousing and Logistics
You can control physical inventory and stock transfers. You can also manage supplier deliveries, customer returns, and returns to supplier. You can use identified stock – such as batches or lots – labeling, and logistics units to enhance tracking and tracing procedures. You can integrate quality assurance tasks such as final inspections in production.

Sales
Comprehensive access to customer-related information about opportunities, quotes, orders, and invoices. Your employees can use data in SAP Business ByDesign to verify product availability, perform accurate forecasting, predict future sales, and identify cross-selling and up-selling opportunities. SAP Business ByDesign helps your sales staff fill the sales pipeline, focus on the most promising leads, and accelerate the sales process.

Project Management
The SAP Business ByDesign solution helps your organization achieve optimal efficiency and transparency in its management of projects – from end to end. SAP Business ByDesign enables collaboration within a project team. Project managers can plan and structure projects the way they want, with instant access to the tools and visibility required to ensure efficient execution and ongoing control.

Service

SAP Business ByDesign enables your organization to offer customer service that differentiates it from the competition and helps ensure a high degree of customer satisfaction. The solution helps increase your service agents’ effectiveness to provide a customer service experience.

Cash Flow Management
Cash flow management supports your organization in tracking and optimizing cash flow and keeping tight control of receivables, payables, payments, and liquidity. Automation speeds the collection of receivables, and analytical functions assess your cash position in real time. SAP Business ByDesign helps you optimize your liquidity, so you have sufficient financial resources available at all times.
icon
Sourcing
The Sourcing business area allows your company to plan and determine its long-term purchasing activities. Sourcing uses request for quotation (RFQ) and contract management processes to achieve long-term cost savings and improved service levels among chosen suppliers. It enables the automation of many sourcing activities including the creation of contracts with suppliers. Your employees can effectively collaborate with your suppliers and can track and monitor your suppliers’ performance according to the commitments they have made.
icon
Financial and Accounting
Integrate your core business processes and financials so that you have a single, up-to-date view of the financial state of your business. This single source of corporate truth serves as a centralized general ledger with related subledgers and includes standard accounting logic. It helps you make informed business decisions and at the same time serves as the basis for your financial reporting.
icon
Purchasing
Manage your purchasing cycle. This covers activities to control and centrally manage purchase requests, purchase order collaboration, and goods and services receipts for delivery of products. You can integrate and automate your purchasing tasks, such as creating purchase orders, receiving purchase order acknowledgments, and verifying supplier invoices, which reduces errors and streamlines your entire procurement process. In addition, self-service procurement lets your employees create, monitor, and control their own shopping carts.
icon
Human Resources
Integrate your HR processes with other core processes, which ensures that appropriate HR data is available to employees when they need it. The software has built-in workflows and functionality such as HR-related forms and reports to help your employees better manage and complete their tasks.
icon
Product Development
Control and monitor your product design and configuration process. You can use this business area to create and edit product designs, product specifications, product models, product properties, and materials. A template-driven approach helps to speed and control the creation of new product specifications. The integration of external engineering systems enables you to smoothly transfer CAD designs to SAP Business ByDesign.
icon
Business Performance Management
Do your managers want to gain more control over the business and make better-informed decisions? With SAP Business ByDesign, your managers can easily spot trends and opportunities and detect variances from plans. And they can readily access the information they need to better plan and organize business activities. In addition, companies can adapt SAP Business ByDesign flexibly to match organizational changes as the business grows and changes.
icon
Supply Chain Management
The solution provides a view of the distribution network to customers, as well as an internal view of a site, such as the layout of a warehouse or production site. You can also manage the flow of products within your warehouse, and between your warehouse and manufacturing as an integrated process. You can achieve business process transparency between planning and execution using scalable production models that combine both the bill of material and bill of operations.
icon
Communication and information Exchange
Your employees can embrace a collaborative style of working that frees them to do what they do naturally: exchange ideas, work through problems, compare notes, and get feedback. The software provides easy-to-use functionality that supports your employees in working together more efficiently – internally as well as externally.
icon
Corporative Governance
The Compliance business area provides transparency into aspects of your business such as IT-related changes. It also enables you to provide auditors with access to your system for financial and system audits. If your company trades goods with countries outside of the EU per example, SAP ByDesign assists you in creating and issuing export declarations.
icon
General Business Data
Ensuring that you have an organizational structure that reflects your company’s requirements, as well as up-to-date and accurate information on your products, business partners, and product and service pricing is vital to the success of all companies. By helping you manage your master data, the SAP Business ByDesign solution gives you more control over the essential data needed to run your day-to-day business.
icon
Built-in Services and Support
Focus on running your business instead of running your software. The built-in learning environment delivers training content in a web based format. Guided instructional content is available in the Learning Center, and contextual help is available in the Help Center. SAP Business ByDesign is updated frequently to ensure that the software remains current with regulatory mandates. The solution monitors itself with frequent health checks to ensure that you have uninterrupted operations.
