SAP ERP implementations ‘speeding up’

The speed at which enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems provider SAP can implement its software is becoming quicker, it has been claimed.

Writing for IT Business, Jeff Jedras suggested the company, which has created ERP systems such as SAP Business One, may be able to realise its aim of 100 per cent channel centricity in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through faster implementation in the future.

The industry expert stated that this will also become more realistic as ERP solutions continue to become cheaper and easier to install.

He reported that such advances would "allow partners to spend less time on integration, get more customers up and running and spend more time focusing on higher-value service business".

The software is sharply reducing query times and is "transforming business intelligence architectures", he added.

SAP recently announced that its SAP Business One package is being embraced worldwide, with the product becoming increasingly popular in Latin American countries.
