Mobile App: Helps Your Run Smarter

Mobile apps in SAP Business ByDesign make running your business even more efficient – why?

Because you don’t need to wait until you get back to the office to get productive – so much can be achieved on the go and in real time.


  • Staff can record hours & expenses against specific projects
  • Managers can approve requests on the go
  • Check your personalised KPIs
  • Consult reports – set up as you want them
  • Call & e-mail business contacts direct from your mobile contacts database
  • Receive work schedules in the field & plan routes

Looks familiar

The SAP Business ByDesign app shares the same look and feel as your latest desk top version so you can get comfortable with it right away. When you logon via the mobile app you will see your launch pad and your embedded KPIs along with tiles that let you get things done on the go.

Take for example My Expense Reports – a self service app that allows employees to log expenses on the move. As soon as they’re created they’re sent for approval, where they can be dealt with swiftly via the management approval app or via desktop.

KPIs only need to be defined once and will then be brought over to your phone or tablet.

Access the Accounts Management section and go through to a full list of contacts – then call or e-mail while viewing their account history and CRM activities.

The Field Service and Repair order pipeline app is designed for service engineers who might be out in the field on a repair job. They will be able to receive a list of their service orders off base and on the move – allowing them to drill down into customer contact details, along with a list of the work required – then record time taken, costs charged and even invoices.

Also enjoy the benefits of Route Planning. By selecting multiple orders you can get the most efficient route between jobs using Google maps.


Personalise your launch pad by adding or removing tiles in your mobile app e.g. order pipeline, shopping cart and create reports onto your smart phone, displayed according to your personal preference.

Project Management

Real time project recording is here! The SAP Business ByDesign mobile app is perfect for Project Management, allowing you to record expenses against individual projects at source and on the go. Cut costs by using your time more efficiently and delight your finance team with up to date real time project expenses and budgets that can be easily viewed by everyone.
