Time is money. And most employees struggle with time management. As a business manager, your #1 priority must be helping your staff manage time effectively. What can you do to help your personnel manage their schedules? For starters, increase the visibility of your business processes. Improving the process visibility is a challenge manually. And the challenge will become more intense if your business is growing at a fast pace or has more than 100 employees.

Investing in SAP S/4HANA ERP is the best way forward. This ERP solution augments a business manager’s capability to keep tabs on the schedules of different employees. But your workforce may be reluctant to work with SAP S/4HANA. Some of your employees may not be ready to ditch their legacy business solutions. Why? Because of the supposedly steep learning curve that the newer ERP system may bring.

If this scenario resonates with you, we have got this guide for you. Here, we will explain how your employees should use SAP S/4HANA to raise their productivity.

Use SAP Fiori Launchpad

SAP Fiori delivers improved user experience (UX). Let us admit this hard reality—the first thing any business user would notice on landing on SAP S/4HANA is its intuitive user interface (UI). Things, however, were not that simple earlier. Back in the day, users spent a large chunk of their time picking their way through the clunky SAP GUI. The process of searching for programs was confusing because users had to memorize T-codes to navigate applications. Enter SAP Fiori Launchpad, which changed things for the better. This revamped UI centralized every application that made navigation easy and fast. The maneuverability of a user was improved with hyperlinks and hyperlinks. It will not be a bit of a stretch to say that hyperlinks and tiles have dramatically elevated the UX.

Leverage Blazingly Fast Search Capabilities

SAP S/4HANA has a nifty search bar. Users key in their keyword in the search bar to identify every part of it easily and quickly. The best part? This search bar works with your keyword even if you have misspelled it. And once it has identified your keyword, it scours its HANA or High-Performance Analytic Appliance database to give you the right match. Moreover, the search bar even offers the primo capability to filter keywords so that you can discover specific datasets based on your requirements. For example, if you have a purchase order, you will be able to filter this dataset for different parameters—purchasing group, user, supplier, etc. The result of having these streamlined search capabilities? Well, this capability helps you save truckloads of invaluable time for a business user. That way, a user will be left with a lot of time to perform value-added activities.

Capitalize On In-App Training

Fiori’s Enable Now is a godsend for users who may be confused about a feature of this ERP. The fact is that SAP S/4HANA comes with a dizzying range of features. It is true that the sheer range of these features can overwhelm even the most seasoned SAP users. So, not remembering how to use a particular function of this ERP solution is quite understandable. But is it understandable from a business standpoint? No. Fortunately, the team supporting the upgrade plans of SAP S/4HANA understood this challenge. That is precisely why it created Enable Now. This built-in tool lets users rapidly access click-thru instructions explaining the working of a particular feature in SAP S/4HANA. The best part is that you can work with this tool without having to exit the ERP portal. The result? You may use Enable Now whenever you fail to understand or remember how a feature works. 

Optimize Workflows

Good communication supports seamless project execution. However, the reality is that time-sensitive tasks often get buried in unending trail mails and crowded inboxes. The result is massive lag times that delay projects. Fiori has a solution. As a matter of fact, Fiori has an excellent track record of sending instant notifications. These notifications can ensure that mission-critical workflows do not get disrupted, lost, or forgotten. Even better, these notifications appear on SAP’s mobile app. That means every action is instantly viewed and approved, no matter what your coworker’s time zone is.
