Return on Investment

  • Great tool for me as a salesman, visibility into all my accounts and contacts. Great ROI for me personally as it helps me track my business prospects.
  • Easy access via the cloud for home, office, or on the go. Has mobile apps that are effective for simple tasks and reminders.
  • Great community to be a part of, tons of online resources. Also, have the ability to connect with SAP directly and with partner network, there are many layers of support.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - Access to the real-time reporting allowing for faster decision making especially when fixed price projects are heading into an over budget position.
  • Positive - Complex KPI can now be tracked and as a consequence intensive plans can be made to capitalise on this level of reporting. Staff also have clear visibility over their own performance.
  • Negative - We are a bit on the small side at 30 employees for a ByD solution so it was relatively expensive for us. It would be a much better value preposition above 50 employees.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to implement the project under our $100k budget.
  • The sales team moved back to Salesforce, which caused the company to use a separate person to enter the quotes in SAP as well as Salesforce.
  • We have improved tracking of support costs as well as whether a customer has an active support contract or not.
  • We have improved our inventory control for tracking changes to BOM costs or BOM items.
  • We have better control of ensuring that only products that are on the sales order and that tie to the customer purchase order are released to the customer. Extras are controlled.

Return on Investment

  • We have several entities in ByDesign, and the application was not able to consolidate financial reporting for all of them. We had to build a costly bolt-on application (EPM) for our consolidation, financial reporting, and forecasting needs.

What is SAP Business ByDesign?

SAP Business ByDesign (ByD) is a cloud enterprise resource planning software (Cloud ERP) that is sold and operated as software as a service (SaaS) by SAP SE. It is designed for small to medium-sized enterprises as well as subsidiary businesses. The software is designed to provide business processes across application areas from financials to human resources with embedded business analytics, mobility, e-learning, and support.

SAP Business ByDesign is built on the principles of a service-oriented architecture (SOA). The underlying technology is leveraging SAP's in-memory HANA database.

A comprehensive set of prepackaged integrations as well as SOAP and oData webservices ensure easy integrations to other SAP or non-SAP applications.

The main application areas:

  • Financial Management
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Project Management and Professional Service Automation
  • Supplier Relationship Management and Procurement
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Human Resource Management
  • Fund and Grant Management
  • Business Analytics
  • Executive support and compliance management.

ByDesign is deployed in 144 countries and supports 12 languages.

SAP Business ByDesign is available for a monthly software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription, based on a base package, user types, and number of users. The price includes hosting, unlimited storage, access to all application areas (see above), support etc.

Updates are delivered automatically four times a year with no IT staff required.
