SAP announced the availability of the SAP ERP Customer Order Entry mobile app on SAP Store. The mobile app, which is built on is built on the technology of Sybase Unwired Platform, connects an iPhone into the sales and distribution systems of wholesale distributors and consumer product providers, enabling their customers to have mobile access to supply orders in real time. The announcement was made at the SAP Retail Forum North America, held in Dallas earlier this month.
According to SAP, until now a lack of real-time ordering in wholesale distribution and consumer products has contributed to supply shortages and overstocking. With SAP ERP Customer Order Entry, product ordering is no longer locked to a specific location or office. Store managers and buyers on-the-go can view past orders, access item availability, submit new orders, make replenishment requests and pull down detailed inventory statistics.
SAP offers the mobile app as part of the SAP rapid-deployment solution for mobile apps and infrastructure. Business-to-business (B2B) companies unaccustomed to rolling out mobile technology can leverage pre-configured content, mobile customer order entry best practices and pre-defined deployment services for a fast implementation within a fixed scope and fixed price. The average timeframe for implementing a rapid-deployment solution is less than 90 days, with lower costs and fewer risks
SAP ERP Customer Order Entry is free and available for download on SAP Store.
