Course Summary

SAP Business ByDesign is SAP’s cloud-based ERP solution for SMEs, and enables you to manage your entire business with a single cloud ERP solution. It is ideally suited for upper mid-market companies and subsidiaries of large corporations (2-tier approach).

In this fifth openSAP course on SAP Business ByDesign, you’ll learn about both customer-facing and internal project-based services and their tight process integration within the different areas of SAP Business ByDesign, such as sales, invoicing, purchasing, and financials. Our team of experts will explain how SAP Business ByDesign supports the stakeholders of project-based services, and what business processes are supported. You’ll learn about the project management functionality provided, and about selling project-based services. This will be followed by sessions detailing aspects that you may often encounter: time recording and resource management as well as procurement and expense reporting. To round off the course, we’ll give you an overview of project cost and revenue management aspects.

All the weeks are complemented by demonstrations in the systems. These will help you link what you’ve learned in the theory to your daily work activities.
