What is SAP Software Used For?
Last time on the Pioneer B1 blog, we took a look at ERP software, what it is, what benefits they give companies, the whole deal. If you have spent any time on our site, you’ve seen another acronym pop up everywhere: SAP. Not sure what that is? Don’t worry, this time we are going to take it a step further and look specifically at what it is (hint: it’s a software!) and what SAP software is used for.

First, What is SAP
SAP is the leader in enterprise software. Founded in 1972 by IBM engineers, Systemanalyse und Programmentwicklung, or Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing in English were originally rolled out to data centers in German chemical engineering plants. Over the past almost 50 years they have expanded into just about every industry out there. To borrow a stat from their site, “77% of the world’s transaction revenue touches an SAP system.”
So, if ERP is one of the best tools you can use to grow a business, SAP is the best version of that tool. SAP is the Ferrari of ERPs, and it is what we are experts in here at Pioneer B1.
