With one click you can also start the automatic search for SAP data to sender, subject or selected words of the currently opened email. The search results are shown directly in Outlook or Lotus Notes.
The results list is comparable to that of a Google search – if you move your mouse over an entry, all important information is viewed in a quick overview.
If you want to see further information, you will get to SAP GUI with a click, without having to sign in on the SAP system again. If SAP GUI should not be used anymore, you can use the cuWeb interface.
I.e. when receiving an email regarding a supplier, the supplier record, or the HR master record of an application mail or message of an employee in human resources, can be automatically called up. The same is possible for invoices and respective orders, contracts or postings as well as further common scenarios.
Also Personal Information Managers (PIM), such as MS Outlook and IBM Lotus Notes, receive a direct connection to SAP with cuConnect. When you open your email application in the morning, you are also signed in on the SAP systems via Single Sign-on. Via the integrated free text search you can now search all SAP contents (objects and respective transactions) easily – without having to exit Outlook or Lotus Notes.
Today mobile devices shape our everyday life. With them we are available everywhere and information can be accessed quickly on the internet or via an app at all times. Lots of companies, however, do not fully use special business apps for optimization of SAP-based company processes yet. Most of the time, because apps did not offer adequate integration into ERP and security concepts were not fully developed.
The email application has been playing a central role in the business world much longer. With it appointments, tasks and contacts are managed and information is exchanged. These mostly refer to processes or data that are managed in medium and large companies with ERP systems, such as SAP. Constantly jumping back and forth between email application and SAP is inevitable.
Now cuConnect makes mobile devices, MS Outlook and IBM Lotus Notes “on-the-fly” to the portal for SAP contents – at the highest data security.
