It is usually managed with a mix of flexible on-site resources and remote support, depending on your budget and requirements. With Incident Handling, our first goal is to eliminate the impact on your business as quickly as possible. Although we cannot guarantee to solve the problem immediately, we will always set up a workaround so that you can maintain business continuity.
The tool records specific process steps, while the user operates the SAP R/3 4.6C application we use. Here's how. Together with the user of a department, a transaction is triggered in the ERP system. The recording of the process takes place simultaneously in the background. It can then be displayed as often as you like in the "see it mode" of the ondemand software. An extension is the playback in the "Try It" or "Do It" mode. In this case, the tool moves the end user to the appropriate input fields of the mask during the SAP session with the cursor. It does not matter whether the user works in a test environment or in the production system for self-training. The Do It variant shows the ERP user in a small window, where the next step in the SAP application has to be taken. In this form of knowledge transfer, the specialist user works independently according to the workflow scheme configured in the SAP system. The advantage: After a basic instruction, the other intensive support is almost completely eliminated. If there are changes in the process flow, the recorded film can be adjusted in the right place. After republishing the sequence, it will be available to ERP users. In our company, we have stored and published the complete instructions on the intranet. All SAP users can view the films recorded in XML format. If the employee has appropriate permissions, he or she will be guided through the transactions. If he has any questions, he has an online help. If it is not enough, the records can also be published as a Word file. For 18 different reports in the SAP module for project control, Word documents in a volume of about 100 pages are generated automatically by the ondemand tool. These files are available with full table of contents, page formatting, screen screens and, if necessary, reports (in Excel format). In about four weeks we recorded all SAP modules using the Personal Navigator and documented them as described. The offer can be revised and extended at any time. After a rollout, users often want more advanced functions that go beyond the standard runs. The tool is also suitable for documenting these. For a later integration test, the records shall be used to compile the documentation.

We also publish best practices for analysis and quick solutions to technical problems in SAP Knowledge Base Articles.
SAP ONE Support is not a separate support offering. It does not incur any additional costs and is provided via the existing SAP Enterprise Support offering. SAP ONE Support includes and complements SAP Enterprise Support. SAP companies SuccessFactors and Ariba already have a similar level of support. The basic offer can be supplemented by the premium offers SAP ActiveEmbedded and SAP MaxAttention. With the consistent support via SAP Enterprise Support and an optional unified cooperation model via SAP ActiveEmbedded and SAP MaxAttention for all solutions, SAP offers consistent support for all solutions, regardless of the operating model. SAP ActiveEmbedded and SAP MaxAttention for On-Premise solutions can be supplemented with premium support offerings from SuccessFactors or Ariba for cloud solutions.
Some missing SAP support functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
Our extensive support offerings include long-term support plans, on-site support and remote support.
