SAP partners add more vertical applications for SMBs

SAP's partners have introduced variants of the company's mySAP All-in-One ERP software for 39 new vertical markets.


Partners of SAP have launched 39 new mySAP All-in-One software packages tailored for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) in specific vertical markets, according to SAP.

SAP already offers industry-specific versions of mySAP, with appropriate business processes templates included, but SAP partners can further tailor those versions to produce All-in-One packages adapted to a particular country and industry.

The new packages target the pharmaceutical industry in India, Belgium, Canada and the US; retailers in Spain, Hungary and Australia, and the automotive industry in Belgium and South Korea, among others.

Each one addressed the legal requirements, regulatory compliance and industry requirements applying to an SMB doing business in those countries, SAP's vice-president for global SMB development, Robert Viehmann, said.

Building an All-in-One package for a particular market and ensuring regulatory compliance would typically take a partner three months, Viehmann said. Then, integrating that into a customer's IT system would take between 50 and 100 person-days of work.

The 39 new country-industry combinations brought the total number of All-in-One partner products to nearly 600, SAP said.

Pricing for the packages was set by the partners, based on SAP's per-seat license price for the mySAP products, Viehmann said.

Typical All-in-One installations would have 70 or more seats, with typical deal sizes ranging from $US50,000 to $US125,000, the company said.
