Lost productivity by jumping between applications

According to a McKinsey study, employees spend 28% of their working time processing emails and 20% of their time searching for information.

SAP users who work with both SAP and Outlook spend a significant amount of their time jumping back and forth between the two applications, at the expense of productivity.

With the help of this Outlook integration, employees can create new SAP transactions and edit existing processes directly from their inbox. Important e-mails are linked to the appropriate SAP object with one click. The integration automatically matches incoming e-mails with the corresponding SAP business partner and displays the relevant data directly in Outlook. By storing e-mails and documents, not only the individual processor, but the entire team can view the history of communication in SAP at any time.

Why emails from Outlook
centrally stored in SAP?

Users receive numerous e-mails in their inboxes every day. Some of these relate to operations in SAP. These are often messages with important information about an SAP business transaction. When customers and suppliers ask questions, employees search for these mails in both SAP and Microsoft Outlook. This is expensive and takes time and nerves. That’s why we added the SAP Outlook Connector to the MailCenter. This allows you to move important messages from the Inbox to the SAP ERP system. In any case, transparency significantly relieves the employees. In addition, fast access to information and service quality are important success factors today.

Find out now for which scenarios you can use our solution.

Basically, the problem exists in all departments. Sales employees receive additional information about offers. Purchasing employees receive feedback on inquiries. Suppliers confirm orders. Colleagues in the service receive inquiries about existing service messages. Without a central storage of e-mails in SAP, the processes are incomplete for the users. As a rule, there is no access to the inbox of your colleague. As a result, processes are difficult to understand and non-transparent. As a result, employees need more time to find information.

In any case, the program is easy and quick to implement. They didn’t need any more hardware or software. Simply store the mails in SAP. Turn your SAP ERP into a digital post office.

What scenarios does the add-on support?

SAP “Deposit Document” scenario

In many cases, you will lose valuable time in the event of inquiries from customers and suppliers. During the phone call, the search for the associated e-mails for the operation takes place. Sometimes the incoming messages are dormant in a colleague’s mailbox. As a result, these documents cannot be accessed.

But how can incoming documents be connected to the business objects in SAP? Some users realize the assignment of the e-mails to operations manually via SAP upload. However, this is cumbersome, time-consuming and error-prone. In short, this integration is easier. This is because you place e-mails from the inbox directly in the SAP system. This creates a link to the associated business objects, such as sales order or purchase order. As a result, users will find these emails directly on the SAP object. This makes operations more transparent. Search times are reduced. This makes the work easier, faster and better.

SAP Scenario “Create, Change, and Display Business Object”

Why do employees in the service manually create messages in SAP from inbox operations? Without an add-on, the process often looks like this – after receiving the message in the inbox, you enter a message in the ERP. Then save the mail to your desktop. In a further step, you link the incoming mail to the created message. This process is cumbersome. As a result, it costs the employee time and is prone to errors.

With this SAP Outlook integration, on the other hand, you create or change SAP objects directly from the inbox. In addition, you link the Outlook mails to the created SAP object. All this works at the touch of a button in one step. This make the process simple and safe. Finally, you always have the complete documentation of mail traffic in the GOS attachment of the message. Consequently, the linking of Business Object and incoming mails ensures transparency for the user.

Regardless of which of the two scenarios is of interest to you. With this management solution, you can connect Outlook to your SAP ERP system.
