October 08, 2012 // By: Alexander Roth // Top 5 Apps for October
SAP recently released an update with several new functions for its still new iPhone/iPad app “Business ByDesign Active Sales”. The app, a mobile extension of the SAP Business ByDesign platform and intended for sales employees, allows users to browse product catalogues, present products, and initiate new orders directly from the catalogue. As long as the user is online, all information about product availability will be delivered in real time.
The offline function is also practical. This makes it possible to carry out previously prepared presentations and create customer orders offline. The next time the user goes online, the data is synchronized automatically. Users can also use copies of previously created orders or customized templates in order to initiate new orders in seconds.
SAP has also improved a few of those everyday tasks. For example, there is now the possibility to add private customers to the system. Here, users have more freedom in the address entry process.
Platform: iPad/iPhone (iOS 5 or higher)
