What can additional SAP cloud product support do for your organisation? How can your business benefit from additional support from the side-lines? Let’s take a look and find out.
Help tidy up any minor issues you’ve spotted with your software: Most people are absolutely delighted with their SAP procurement solution, whether they’re a smaller organisation using Ariba Snap, or are a large enterprise with a fully integrated procurement and ERP set up such as SAP Ariba Cloud and S/4 HANA. However, sometimes companies find there are a few areas where their SAP software could do with a few more tweaks.
The sorts of things that might crop up are often things that you wouldn’t notice until your organisation has been using the software for some time – things like minor changes to how contracts or invoices are handled, a missing option in the user interface that’s only come to light with daily hands-on use by the whole procurement team.
The SARS-Cov-2 epidemic is the perfect time for businesses to take time out to deal with minor (and even not-so-minor) issues that might have cropped up with their SAP Ariba deployment.
Find out in detail what a software installation or upgrade would entail: Change management is a vital part of any new software deployment, and many businesses will want to take advantage of the epidemic’s reduced workload to plan and undertake major changes to their software infrastructure. Step one of this is of course finding out what sort of timescale and levels of disruption you’ll be facing.
Often there will be a few different choices depending on the level of change your company can cope with, making it a good idea for many to sketch out a few different rough plans. Others already know what they want, but need to know the minimum disruption levels, including details of how their new deployment can be carried out remotely to avoid spreading disease.
