3. Work simpler and with more fun, with SAP Fiori
The SAP Fiori user interface of SAP S/4HANA revolutionizes the user experience and makes working more fun, as it has a contemporary look and feel and truly focuses on ease of use. When users log into SAP S/4HANA, they see the SAP Fiori Launchpad: a collection of tiles that represent business applications. Some tiles can display live status indicators, such as the number of open tasks to be completed (e.g. the number of payment proposals to be reviewed), or KPIs like the total amount of overdue receivables or accounts payable. By clicking the tile, the user launches the related business application and sees more details on which to take action.
“The SAP Fiori Launchpad is always role-based: it displays only those applications the users need in their jobs. That means that CFOs see a totally different launchpad than colleagues who take care of more administrative tasks. “The Launchpad is a step-change difference in the way finance teams work,” Stef says. “From experience, we see that it does require some time to adapt – but once they get the hang of it, everyone agrees that it’s really lean and self-explanatory. Moreover, the analytical information that is pushed to their Launchpad helps them work more effectively.”
