Off-the-shelf or made-to-measure X’Apps !
are the ultimate productivity tool allowing you to match your detailed business requirements while using your SAP solution to the fullest. X’Apps are mainly Excel-based, but can also exploit other MS Office programs like Outlook, Word or Powerpoint, should you need it. X’Apps provide you with a direct and easy connection to your single or multiple SAP systems, pulling data out of SAP, letting you present it and enrich it the way you want (charts, calculations, simulations, etc.), and upload calculated results back into SAP. X’Apps can save you considerable time versus a classical data verification and input through SAP GUI, but mostly give you the flexibility to work on essential business optimization issues, while freeing you from the inconvenient and lengthy usual SAP data retrieval and upload routines.
X’Apps can be acquired off-the-shelf from our existing library of applications (see below), or designed to measure according to your specifications. You can also ask your IT department or internal expert to develop your own X’App with XSBS STUDIO.
