SAP has launched SAP Direct, a line of 50 prepackaged solutions that offer "quick fixes" to common business problems such as data archiving, fax and E-mail automation, and purchase order and requisition approval processes. The solutions are immediately available in the United States and have previously been available in the United Kingdom.

SAP works with complementary third-party software developers such as Easy Software, Esker, and Readsoft to create prepackaged services for customers who want to augment existing SAP implementations. SAP Direct is an extension of what SAP has done in the past by combining the offerings of SAP software partners and services providers to help companies streamline business processes.

Before SAP Direct, if a business wanted to integrate automated fax and E-mail into its SAP system, it would have had to search for software and implementation vendors, evaluate proposals, and then implement the solution. The SAP Direct fax and E-mail solution, by contrast, includes the software, installation, configuration, and training, implemented in less than 30 days.

Among the 50 SAP Direct prepackages solutions are those for data archiving, automated purchase invoice processing, Web vendor-managed inventory, fax and E-mail automation, and requisition approval processes among others.

"SAP Direct offers customers what they need: a quick, affordable solution to address a specific need in their business operations," Kevin Young, SAP America's VP of field marketing, said in a statement. "With SAP Direct packaged services, SAP is focused on delivering a targeted set of solutions that will improve, simplify or automate our customers' existing SAP implementation to deliver immediate additional value to their SAP investment."
