Introduction to SAP ByDesign

Ideally suited for upper mid-size businesses and subsidiaries of large corporations, ByDesign offers a powerful foundation to scale and compete with companies of all sizes — without the complexity and cost — so you can grow your business your way.

The only application you need

Instead of buying a number of discrete applications that your IT department has to spend time integrating, get the one application that has all the core functions built into it. One application with one interface is much simpler to use and it doesn’t require a large IT department. It’s stored on SAP’s servers, which means you don’t have to invest in a lot of hardware — that’s more cost-effective, easier to deal with and more secure.

ByDesign is modular, so you only have to use what you need now. But when you need other functions, they’re ready to use. It’s flexibility affords you the edge to stay competitive. It’s designed for company growth; so they can be unified, agile and efficient.
