SAP launches business iPhone app

Apple iPhone 4
SMEs across the globe are increasingly taking advantage of the burgeoning smartphone market to run their businesses from a multitude of locations at any time of day. To tap into the growing demand for business insights on the move, SAP has developed an iPhone application for its BusinessOne software that provides constant access to data and analytics.

The application, called BusinessObjects Explorer for iPhone – which also works on the iPad – is available for free as part of the maintenance contract with SAP to those with a professional user license for SAP Business One 8.8 patch level 12 or higher. Easily downloadable from the Apple iTunes store, the app allows small and medium sized businesses easy and visual access to relevant information no matter where in the world they may be.

Featuring simple and fast search and intuitive data exploration and visualization, BusinessObjects Explorer allows users to check on inventory and customers, access reports, receive alerts and process approvals. With the mobile application, users have real-time access to data and can easily navigate, respond and trigger remote processes.

Pankaj Pema, Head of Business One in Africa, says: “With today’s technological advances, there is a growing need for connectivity and information accessibility. Our customers expect constant access to up-to-date information at their fingertips, which is exactly what this mobile application provides. They can now literally run their business from any location in the world, at any time of day, using only their smartphone.”

The mobile application is available for the iPhone or iPod touch with a minimal requirement of version 3.2 of the Mac OS. It is free and available for all to download and view in demo mode at the Apple iTunes store. A short video introduction of the iPhone app can also be viewed at SAP Business One Mobile App for iPhone.


  1. Makes sense really, every company is getting an App now and slowly we will be moving towards the era of the Ap store. However, it’s good to see that mobile/digital marketing is really taking off!
