Corona situation: Working with SAP Business ByDesign


right now countries are considering different strategy against Corona Virus. Most of them have in common that you should practice social distancing which means home office for most of the people. To meet this challenging times, SAP Business ByDesign Cloud software gives you the best possible foundation.

Time models, printer queues, liquidity planning

There are a few topics that are particularly important in the current situation which can be mapped in SAP Business ByDesign.

  • Time administration “short-time work”

In a few countries it is possible to change to “short-time” work. Mapping such models in SAP Business ByDesign requires only a few settings in time management.

  • Output settings and print queues:

If you print documents in your home office, the configuration of output settings and printer queues must be adjusted to ensure that work in the home office runs smoothly.

  • Short-term liquidity planning:

In SAP Business ByDesign, it is possible to map a part of your data basis in order to prepare for possible liquidity bottlenecks. The system provides data that develops a realistic plan for your solvency, which can be checked continuously and thus keep the cash flow (not only in times of crisis) at the top.

  • Year-end closing activities:

Year-end closing activities: Because of lower operating capacity utilization, you now have time to take care of year-end closing activities – correctly closing fiscal years in SAP Business ByDesign is very important.

  • Reporting / Analytics:

Are you looking for a customized, professional dashboard to monitor and optimize your mission-critical business performance? With integrated reporting in SAP Business ByDesign, you can create key performance indicators (KPIs) and interactive dashboards – so you can focus on the metrics that matter to you.

The new possibility to do home office can be quite a challange, but with SAP Business ByDesign a company can continue to operate effectively and efficiently when faced with incidents beyond its controll. Focussing now on your core business can give you an advantage and can help getting through the crisis.

All the best + Stay healthy
