The app, now available through the App Store, requires no additional infrastructure for users to experience SAP GUI re-designed and re-imagined for iPads, iPhones and iPod touch devices.
Synactive also announced the Liquid UI Platform that enables new mobile applications to be built on top of existing SAP transaction logic through a innovative “record once, run everywhere” technology, without Java or ABAP programming. A single script can create front-end changes to SAP GUI, scan guns, web browser and smartphones/tablets. “Just start from any SAP ERP module and build upon it,” said DeeDee Kato, Director of Marketing at Synactive. “Liquid UI connects to SAP ERP via highly efficient native connectivity protocols, without the need for browsers, Web servers, ITS, or the Sybase® Unwired Platform. An additional benefit to the connectivity protocol is that all existing SAP security and authorizations remain intact.”
“Creating the best possible SAP ERP experience for all touch points, including all iOS devices, remains our focus” said Thomas Ewe, CEO and founder of Synactive, Inc. “We’re seeing companies moving away from expensive handheld scanners to more cost-effective iOS devices. Liquid UI for iOS plans to support every industry-standard sled attachment, so companies can deploy a POS solution for SAP, like what they have in Apple Stores, within a matter of days.”
Additional features introduced in the Liquid UI Platform include:
- Encryption, ensuring the connection from a device to the SAP system is stable and secure
- Workflow integration through email that launches Liquid UI for quick approvals
- SAP session persistence even when network connectivity is lost or iOS app is shutdown
- Barcode scanning is supported with the device’s built-in camera. Third party scanning sleds will be supported soon.
