SAP Launches Business ByDesign For Mid-Size Enterprises

Business planning software vendor SAP has launched its Business ByDesign suite, targeted at mid-sized companies, at its Sapphire conference in Orlando, Florida.

Business ByDesign is a 'software-as-a-service' suite, enabling enterprises to manage HR, customer relationships and resource planning in real time. The company said the new suite offers advanced tools such as "customizable reports, forms and user-interfaces".

Introducing the software, SAP's executive vice president for small and mid-sized enterprises, Peter Lorenz, said: “We aim to make a huge step forward in scalability and innovation while we enable our users to collaborate more effectively, make better decisions, and improve their productivity.”

The company added that the new suite comes with real-time analytics, support for mobile devices, an enhanced user interface and great flexibility.

SAP said the software was already being used by around 100 mid-sized clients, with more businesses making enquiries.

Business ByDesign is currently available in the US, UK, India, Germany and France.
