There was a time when providing laptop access to employees represented the ultimate advancement in worker mobility outside of the office. Today, it’s about giving employees those same abilities from a phone or other mobile device. Companies who invested heavily in implementing SAP ECC may be wondering how they can manage to keep up with the needs of their workforce when it comes to providing that added mobility.
Why You Can’t Afford to Wait
Most businesses chose the ECC version of SAP because it could be configured to match the unique needs of individual companies. They weren’t forced to go with a cookie-cutter approach and were willing to finance a customized solution. The idea of configuring FI or SD components for mobile devices may not have been in scope during the initial launch.
Constraints on Your Workforce
When you work in jobs requiring you to be out in the field regularly, mobility becomes essential to do your job efficiently. Salespeople need a way to quickly update company systems about available inventory based on a sale they've just closed so that it displays back to customers viewing a company's stock on hand.
Service technicians out in the field might want to communicate the time it’s going to take to implement a fix so those affected can know when the repairs will be completed. Customers might also want to send inquiries and get a fast response instead of being forced to wait for a callback.
Your workers might not have a laptop on hand in every situation, but they’ll likely have a mobile device. Wouldn’t it be better to configure your SAP implementation to work on whatever they’re currently accessing? Why force them to wait until they can get to a computer and log their updates? What if the delay ends up affecting customers negatively? That could lead to poor customer service ratings and frustration among your workers and clients.
What May Be Stopping You
The idea of making changes to a legacy SAP implementation can bring about resistance within the company. What happens if something goes wrong and no can access the SAP system because of a bad update? The idea of adapting some of the complex GUIs components contained in many SAP interfaces can seem daunting and even impossible.
