It is one of the first SAP-qualified rapid-deployment solutions offered by an SAP partner in Canada. The solution combines SAP software and content with fixed-price and -scope implementation services from Ideaca; supports iPad, iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows mobile devices; and allows clients to achieve benefits quickly and affordably in six to eight weeks. The solution provides sales representatives with relevant, real-time information at their fingertips. Through access to the SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM) application, users can securely execute lead-to-quote-to-order processes on their smart phones, tablets or laptops, whether online or offline.
"Ideaca is proud to extend our offerings to include this rapid-deployment solution for SAP Mobile Sales," said Mike Alkier, managing partner, Ideaca. "We are committed to delivering value-based solutions and are looking forward to helping clients across North America increase revenue, accelerate buying decisions, and maximize team productivity while on the go."
Rapid-deployment solutions are ready-to-use combinations of best-in-class software, pre-configured content and pre-defined services that have been specifically tailored to industries or line-of-business needs, with a fixed price and implementation timeframe. They offer a quick, cost-effective method for standardizing processes and adopting the latest technology innovations with fewer migration risks. The average timeframe for a typical deployment is less than 90 days, which helps customers lower the cost of implementation and speed time to value, while retaining the flexibility to extend the solution wherever needed. Rapid-deployment solutions allow partners to extend their SAP coverage beyond ERP into new areas, such as line-of-business and industry-specific solutions or innovation areas. They enable partners to approach dormant accounts with a modular, yet integrated solution.
"Rapid-deployment solutions are fast becoming the new norm in how SAP and its partners deliver value at high speed to our customers. They address all areas of the SAP solutions portfolio, enabling our partners to immediately hit the sweet spots of the market," said Steven Birdsall, senior vice president and general manager, SAP Rapid Deployment solutions. "Together with partners like Ideaca, we are helping customers to adopt new innovations quickly and easily, reduce implementation time and cost, grow sustainably and predicatively, and ultimately to run better with SAP solutions."
