Our Duet roundtable by invitation only with Dr. Pepper was a full house session. Dr Pepper Snapple Group is a leading producer of flavored beverages in North America and the Caribbean. Over the past 3-5 years Dr Pepper Snapple Group has invested heavily in their SAP transactional business systems. In order to deliver a solution that has a familiar Microsoft style user interface Dr. Pepper Snapple Group implemented a new mobile purchase requisition approval process utilizing Duet Enterprise. With that Dr Pepper Snapple Group has been able to increase adoption, speed in the process, increase accuracy of purchase orders, and increase productivity.

One more fun event today for the onsite team was the ASUG TV Studio interview about “SAP, Microsoft and Duet Enterprise”. Our GW and Duet solution management colleagues Himanshu and Ella were interviewed together with Bill Newman (ASUG Volunteer of Newport Consulting). Some highlights of the discussion are:
- Duet Enterprise is not the old Duet product, do not mix them up
- For today’s business users user experience is the key
- SAP and MSFT are better together for join product like Duet Enterprise so companies already invested in both technologies and skillset can leverage their existing software and resources
