Much of the data being uploaded into SAP already exists in a digital format such as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets or Microsoft Access databases. Moving data out of these spreadsheets and databases requires either manual data entry or ABAP development resources.
Quadrate has an easier solution. For a fraction of the cost of a regular inflexible custom-built ABAP upload program, ERP² can be used to upload Excel files and Access files directly into SAP without any ABAP programming or technical expertise. Utilizing the Microsoft Office suite as the data management platform, users can manipulate and prepare data for upload without any additional training or software.
ERP², pronounced ERP Squared, is a desktop application that is installed directly onto the users’ workstation without any need for changes/installations to the SAP systems. The installation process is quick and simple, and the user-friendly interface can be mastered in a couple of hours. Most customers are creating their own templates and uploading data the very same day that ERP² is installed.
ERP² can be used for a variety of applications within the different SAP modules. Common uses are Mass Uploads of SAP data, Mass Maintenance of SAP data, SAP data migration and the automation of SAP data entry.
