German ERP software developer SAP has joined the stampede of business software suppliers flocking to Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

Last week SAP unveiled an iPhone app for its Cloud-based Business ByDesign software suite, which should be available soon as a free download in Apple’s iTunes online store.

The application is available for free to all customers of feature pack 2.5 for SAP Business ByDesign. Users of BlackBerry and other devices will also be getting access to similar tools in the near future, SAP said.

Designed specifically for small to midsized businesses, the free SAP Business ByDesign mobile app for the iPhone provides customers with real-time data to run businesses with a mobile workforce. Users will be able to manage tasks and create new requests as if they were at the office, the company said. As an added twist, shanking the iPhone will update the Business ByDesign task list”.
“Customers today have to run real-time businesses with a mobile workforce that needs to quickly make decisions no matter where they are,” said Peter Lorenz, executive vice president, Small and Midsize Enterprises, and corporate officer at SAP AG. “This mobile app for SAP Business ByDesign is an integral step in delivering greater value for all users and expanding our on-demand business.”

The app is principally designed for management and sales roles, enabling the instant approval, rejection or forwarding of items that require immediate attention, such as price lists or payment approvals, as well as mobile lead and opportunity management, and account and activity management.

SAP is already planning for the next iteration to not only support other mobile devices such as BlackBerry and Android, but also aim to enable partners to create supplemental content.
