SAP stands for Systems, Applications, and Products. It is a centralized software system used by companies for enterprise resource planning (ERP). SAP enables every person and department in the business to share, edit, and use shared data. It consists of a suite of software modules that handle different parts of the business process. There are SAP modules for human resources, project management, warehouse management, customer relationship management, sales, and many other business functions. What makes SAP important to business is that all of this functionality and all the data the enterprise uses every day is available 24/7 on the internet. Each business user can update this data with necessary changes and have it instantly available to other users in the business, making it easier to run an operation that has more than one location and remote employees.
