SAP Personas

SAP Screen Personas provides a non-technical approach to modifying traditional SAP GUI screens at a no license cost to SAP customers. SAP Screen Personas is based primarily on user centric enhancement, providing users with role-specific data in the right context, at the right time and in an intuitive format. Representing the paradigm shift often termed “the consumerization of IT,” SAP Screen Personas offers an innovative solution for unlocking business user productivity by providing a 21st century renovation to SAP GUI interface design.

Because SAP Screen Personas is built into the foundation of SAP software, it installs quickly, leverages existing security settings, and follows the standard transport process to bring new screens into the production environment.

SAP Screen Personas provides an amazing ability to create a vastly simplified user experience with a high degree of personalisation without programming to fit individual working styles. Using browser-based software to personalise SAP GUI screens and a drag-and-drop interface, you can hide the fields that users may not need, streamline tasks by automating repeated keystrokes, and improve visual appeal by exposing only the information needed to complete a transaction.

What can be achieved with SAP Screen Personas?

  • Self-intuitive, task-user specific data format.
  • Business specific mandatory field assignment to ensure data integrity.
  • Provide user friendly cross functionality to relevant SAP transactions.
  • Embedded business process logic.
  • Pre-scripting to reduce keystroke entry & mouse clicks.
  • Automate replicable data lookups & data entry tasks.
  • Powerful screen, data tab & data field merging capabilities.
  • Elimination of irrelevant data fields and buttons.
  • Overall, improved user productivity, efficiency & satisfaction.
  • Powerful UI design & corporate branding capabilities.
