So far, our blogs have mainly referred to the dangers of an uncontrolled cost trap in relation to digital access.
Today we turn the tables and take a look at the financial possibilities of digital access.
Let us assume that you have a large number of employees who have been accessing SAP for years using mobile devices. For these employees, you have duly acquired corresponding licenses from SAP, which are often platform users or have other common licenses. The company is now properly licensed and does not worry about digital access so far.
Passport will, however, count the relevant fee-based documents.
Of course, the company does not have to pay these if they are created by the already licensed employees using the mobile solution that has existed for years.
So far so good! If you look a little deeper into the matter, interesting situations arise from this situation.
There are no other documents beyond those generated by mobile workers. Then you should see whether a switch to digital access will be the cheaper option. The mobile user licenses could be returned and converted into digital access documents. These packages are currently being offered at a 90% discount.

A large number of chargeable documents are created by other users. Since SAP offers to keep an old solution with regard to digital access, it can now be checked whether switching to digital access is cheaper than buying the corresponding licenses for the users involved. A platform license costs 1,200 € according to the list price, but you can currently get 24,000 paid documents from SAP. That could be a real alternative.
The mobile employees do not generate any chargeable documents because they only update or delete existing documents, which is free according to the definition of digital access. There are hardly any other documents that require payment. If the company now completely switches to digital access, there are no additional costs and suddenly a large number of user licenses become free, which can be exchanged for urgently needed other products, for example when switching to
These are just three of the many ways that a company can benefit from digital access. We know most of them!
At our free webinar on 12th August 2020, we will go into even more detail about such possibilities.
The basis of all these variants is the ability to identify the necessary basic data in the SAP systems, which we can implement with our license optimization software samQ and on the basis of which we disclose the most sensible variants to our customers.
Just ask us, it is worth it and samQ ensures automatic license optimization anyway.
