About SAP

Does your business need a platform to automate processes and support growth? Then talk toSAP, the company enabling 47,000 organisations worldwide achieve their potential and become Best Run Businesses. SAP has enterprise software solutions for businesses of all sizes. SAP provides a comprehensive, industry-specific, range of software applications for automating business processes, including finance, human resource (HR), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain and business intelligence. If you are a small to medium sized business (SMEs) you may be thinking: We can’t afford SAP. Think again. SAP has enterprise software solutions for a business your size.  In fact 85 per cent of SAPcustomers in Australia and New Zealand are SMEs.

Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP)

The SAP ERP application is the software foundation enterprises trust to achieve business excellence and innovation. Leveraging this foundation and integrated industry specific functionality, customers can build the business processes they need today – and tomorrow. Based on industry best practices, SAP ERP draws from 35 years of experience with more than 47,000 customer implementations. SAP ERP delivers the powerful functionality, global orientation, flexible enhancement package options customers need to gain a sustainable, competitive advantage and position for profitable growth. SAP ERP supports a broad range of business processes.  These include financial management, human capital management, procurement and logistics execution, product development and manufacturing, sales and service, and corporate service. Using the robust functionality that SAP ERP provides for these business processes, organisations can:

  • More tightly link business processes and improve visibility
  • Extend your enterprise network and enable collaboration with customers, partners, suppliers
  • Enhance financial management and reporting
  • Effectively manage your workforce – both locally and globally
  • Achieve superior flexibility for addressing new business requirements
  • Gain easier access to enterprise information and reports
  • Lower the cost of deploying industry based processes
  • More easily integrate add-on applications and processes
  • Reduce total cost of ownership.

SAP’s ERP offering scales to meet the business requirements of small, midsize and large enterprises in industries with local or global reach.

Small business solutions

SAP provides affordable, easy to use business management software designed specifically for small and midsize enterprises.

SAP Business One supports the management of critical business functions across sales, distribution and financials, all in a single integrated system. With SAP Business One, organisations can easily access a complete and up to the minute view of the business, enabling them to respond to customers more quickly and improving productivity. SAP Business One is aimed at customers with between 10 and 200 users.

Solutions for growing businesses

SAP Business All-in-One is SAP’s industry specific on-premise solution with the flexibility to adapt as an organisation grows.  Customers can chose from an industry configuration with deep industry best practices built in or a Fast Start program, which starts with the basics and delivers quick results, while establishing a platform for increased capabilities in the future. SAP ANZ offers a purpose-built Australian version of SAP Business All-in-One, which delivers a Fast Start ERP for midsize companies in six to eight weeks.  The Fast Start Program delivers fixed price, fixed scope ERP and comes pre-packaged with an IBM x3500 server.  The solution has been purpose-built for the Australian market by SAP’s SME Solution Centre and is designed to meet the needs of fast-growing enterprises with between 100 and 500 employees in services, manufacturing and wholesale industry sectors.


The SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) application provides best-in-class functionality for marketing, sales, and service. By supporting customer-facing business processes across multiple interaction channels, SAP CRM enables organisations to focus on strategies for customer-driven growth and to differentiate themselves in the market by providing a superior customer experience. With SAP CRM, you get the help you need to delight your customers, empower your teams, and grow your business.

Human Resources

SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) is a complete and integrated human capital management solution that delivers unmatched global capability. SAP ERP HCM gives organisations the tools needed to manage their most important asset: people. The solution equips executives, HR professionals, and line managers to hire the best talent, as well as train and cultivate the skills of their workforce. SAP ERP HCM helps organisations throughout the world increase performance with an efficient, committed, and motivated workforce. With integrated building blocks and an unmatched partner ecosystem, the solution supports shared services and business process outsourcing – reducing cost and risk for these deployment models. The software solution automates all core human resource processes, such as employee administration, payroll, and legal reporting, increases efficiency and supports compliance with changing global and local regulations.

Build and extend as your business grows

Organisations that use SAP can add CRM, supply chain management, product lifecycle functionality as their needs evolve which reduces cost and facilitates change.  SAP is a platform for growth, innovation and operational excellence. In today’s business climate, companies must address challenges such as industry consolidation, talent shortages, heightened expectations from customers and stakeholders, and increased regulatory demands.  To meet these challenges, organisations must be able to respond quickly, simply and with minimal additional cost.  Business leaders need IT that is flexible, robust and secure.
