What is SAP software?

SAP software controls and manages some of the biggest organisations in the world. Companies running SAP generate 87% of total global commerce worth an eye-watering €46 trillion*.

Almost all (94%) of the world’s largest companies are SAP customers, and 99 out of 100 of the world’s largest companies run SAP's S/4HANA ERP solution. However, that’s only a fraction of the story…

Although SAP software is at the heartbeat of some of the world’s most recognisable organisations, around 80% of SAP’s customers are, in fact, small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). SAP is not only the obvious choice for global multinationals, but it also powers thousands of SMEs on a daily basis.

What is SAP software used for?

You name it; SAP software controls it. After being established in 1972, SAP is the market share leader in enterprise resource planning (ERP), analytics, supply chain management, human capital management, master data management, data integration, and experience management.

SAP software is used to control all types of critical business functions. By integrating and automating key processes, SAP helps organisations to run faster and more efficiently.

By storing data centrally, SAP software provides multiple business functions with real-time and accurate insight into operations. This helps companies to simplify operations by stripping back disparate systems, streamline activities and to make better, more informed decisions faster than ever before.

What is an example of SAP software?

SAP offers solutions across a wide range of areas. There’s software available from ERP and Finance, CRM and Customer Experience to industry-specific solutions.

Each year, SAP invests hundreds of millions of dollars into research and development. The company has more than 100 R&D innovation hubs to provide end-users with the latest technology to run their businesses.

As an SAP platinum partner, SEIDOR specialises in selling, implementing and supporting some of SAP’s most popular and innovative ERP software solutions.
