Thousands of mid to large size companies worldwide use SAP software to run the majority of their day-to-day business transactions and processes.

Lets have look at some of the uses of SAP

  1. Integration – Integration can be the highest benefit of them all. The only real project aim for implementing ERP is reducing data redundancy and redundant data entry.
  2. Efficiency – Generally, ERP software focuses on integration and tends to not care about the daily needs of people. Individual efficiency can suffer by implementing ERP.
  3. Cost reduction – it reduces cost only if the company took accounting and reporting seriously even before implementation and had put a lot of manual effort in it.
  4. Less personnel – Same as above. Less reporting or accounting personnel, but more sales assistants etc.
