What is
SAP Business ByDesign?

SAP Business ByDesign is a Cloud ERP for mid-market organisations that are rapidly outgrowing their old business processes. It integrates all departmental functions including Finance, Supply Chain Management, CRM, HR, Project Management and more. It also supports expansion into new countries.

Cloud ERP?

As your business changes, a solid underlying foundation is critical.

SAP Business ByDesign?

It’s time to go digital.

It’s critical to be able to make business decisions any time with real-time access to information. To be able to do that, you need to automate crucial business processes to increase productivity. It’s time to go digital when:

Your system is slow. Someone else is hosting your solution for you, and you’re logging in through a sluggish remote desktop.
You can’t update your old solution because you’ve made so many customisations in the backend that you can’t upgrade to a new version
You’re spending vast sums on IT professionals in-house or outsourced running the system, maintenance, and support.
You’re running an outdated on-premise solution.
Your software is outdated. Uploads and downloads of business information is labour intensive and suboptimal.


As a fast growing company, your needs are beginning to outpace your current system capabilities. As your business grows, you need to put best-practice processes in place.

You’ve grown quickly and you may have bought new systems over the years to facilitate transactions that suited your needs at the time.

These might have been solutions like Sage, Xero, QuickBooks, on top of HR and Project management systems to help manage tax and bank accounts.

You’ve got a lot of systems and are paying for lots of different licenses. However you still have the problem of uploading and downloading information, that is inhibiting your true growth potential.

SAP Business ByDesign sets your business for scale.

You want to
Reduce Costs.

Inefficiencies in your business processes and lack of total visibility makes it hard to realise true profit potential.

SAP Business ByDesign lets you leverage the power of master data and leave silos behind with integration between departments and entities.

The solution gets rid of the problem of having lots of systems in different places and gives you business-wide visibility, allowing you to get a clear picture, support profitable decision-making, and uncover opportunities.


If you’re thinking of expanding into new markets, you need software that will support you. Empower your subsidiary network to harmonize business and intercompany processes.

Let's say you're expanding into three new countries. Rather than going out and buying three different systems and consolidating their transactional data offline, a single solution will save you the trouble.

A group with ten companies trying to find their sales margins would take a long time to find out. SAP Business ByDesign would enable them to discover this instantly.

And as you grow, you can add functionality freely, adjusting the system to suit your needs.  

Financials - the cornerstone of the system

Supplier - businesses that sell stock, they make stock do something to it then sell it

Purchase orders, purchasing contracts, RFPs

Project Management -i.e. Professional services. Selling time and licenses etc.
