Combination of On Premise and Private Cloud as a goal
Basis for effective management and operation of your SAP solution and the maximum benefits
For training in the rollout phase, the above documents and records proved very helpful. The tool has supported our SAP instructors in user training. The automatic documentation in Word serves as a training manual. Recorded processes are particularly useful for SAP transactions, because no one can remember all the transaction steps of a main process. All areas of work are directly accessible via a table of contents. To answer questions from SAP users not only orally but also in the form of screen recordings, key users and support staff can quickly "film" and publish the processes in question. The user can view both his input and the results in the Personal Navigator. This means that the errors are almost completely eliminated. There are also other offers on the market, but this tool has proven itself in practical use.
