Most of the accomplished players across industries perform an intriguing maneuver to cut IT costs— they use the inbuilt functions of their SAP technology landscape instead of buying and integrating yet another software solution. “Also, in order to push for standardization, they are unifying their SAP systems and processes,” says Christian Bartels, Managing Director, Evora IT Solutions US. Catering to these needs is Evora IT Solutions, a consulting and software provider, specializing in mobile workforce management. The company’s mobile offering on SAP standard components and products enable them to deliver a perfectly integrated solution with a significantly lower total cost of ownership.


Using the latest in SAP User Experience (UX) technology, we add significant value to existing processes without increasing the complexity of the landscape


Evora IT confers a comprehensive service and support portfolio to all SAP mobility customers. “Using the latest in SAP User Experience (UX) technology, we add significant value to existing processes without increasing the complexity of the landscape,” explains Gregor Bender, Managing Director, Evora IT Solutions Germany. This proven approach will be of high importance as more customers look for a SAP Fiori-like experience when accessing their system. SAP UX ensures that the complexity is hidden, and data and processes are at their customer’s fingertips. To create standardized mobile solutions for enterprises, Evora IT leverages SAP Mobile Platform (SMP) for a variety of use cases. “For mobile plant maintenance and service processes with the requirement for offline capabilities, we utilize the SAP Work Manager and SAP Service Manager standard solutions,” notes Karthik Setty, Managing Director, Evora IT Solutions Holding.
“We deploy these solutions on SMP’s Agentry stack and tailor them to our customers’ needs.” SMP is also used as a secure gateway to the customers’ existing SAP and non-SAP systems. This creates the opportunity of deploying innovative mobile solutions on top of SMP, using leading technologies like HTML5 in combination with Kapsel.

Evora IT also offers scheduling solutions like EvoPlan, SAP Multi Resource Scheduling (MRS), and Click Schedule by ClickSoftware. “If the use case requires map integration and reporting functions in order to follow job progress as well as tight integration into SAP, EvoPlan is the right choice,” remarks Bartels. SAP MRS and ClickSchedule provide the resource planner with an intuitive graphical interface that contains information about open demands, resource utilization, and any conflicts with current resource planning. This true visual scheduling allows the planner to assign jobs to technicians to the minute. “The solutions offering this kind of planning, both manually and automatically, on a Gantt-chart are SAP MRS and ClickSchedule,” adds Bartels.

The technology solutions furnished by Evora IT are aimed at two things—evolution of customer processes and acting ‘rapidly on the leading edge of mobility. The name Evora IT was coined from these principles. The list of clients that Evora IT serves stand as a testimony to the company’s ability. In one of the cases, an international car manufacturer wanted a quicker way to use SAP functions on the shop floor. “We provided a custom HTML5 application based on SMP, allowing the technicians to quickly confirm the time spent on different jobs,” explains Bartels. Evora IT is now organizing workshops to optimize the next set of functions which requires an increased user experience.

Evora IT has invested a lot in innovation for their satisfying and efficient solutions. One of their next innovations will be to strengthen the SAP Work Manager with Smart Meter capabilities. “We are also looking at the future mobile inter¬faces to HANA in the cloud,” says Bartels. SAP is increasingly focusing on the cloud as the strategic driver for lowering TCO and delivering seamless innovation. “As always, we will provide secure evolution at the rapid speed of our customers,” remarks Bender.
