Ruum by SAP: Integrations

For decades, enterprise systems have been disconnected from productivity apps: Work starts in SAP and moves to the phone, emails, or spreadsheets. Even the best teams lose productivity in the transition from back office to front office. Ruum by SAP closes this gap and translates your business processes into actual project plans to enable faster work, fewer dropped balls, and better business — helping your teams to deliver at their best.

Project Management for Everyone

Almost everything we do in business is a smaller or more extensive project, which is why Ruum supports non-project managers in project managing their work:

  • You get access to a simple, shared workspace for teams; as easy as email, but with simple project management features such as tasks, timelines, and file storage to boost productivity.
  • Digital assistant ‘Ada’ takes over follow-ups with all team members to help you focus on what matters: moving your projects forward.
  • Ruum seamlessly integrates with all your business processes — from any SAP screen, you can spin up a project, add relevant business data, and bring the right people together to close the loop.

At SAPPHIRE NOW, we are excited to release integrations between Ruum and various SAP cloud applications, including SAP C/4HANA, SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Demand Signal Management, and SAP Fieldglass. Additionally, we are releasing Microsoft Teams and SharePoint integrations, providing an end-to-end solution across collaboration, communication, and productivity.

With this tight integration into business processes, Ruum provides a seamless user experience for companies of various sizes. One of Ruum’s early adopters is the global skincare giant Beiersdorf AG, which rolled out the project management-as-a-service solution to employees worldwide.

Chief Digital Officer Martin Böhm recently shared how Ruum enables Beiersdorf to make better decisions faster and optimize productivity: “Ruum stops endless, cluttered email threads. It brings together the right people and the right information at the right time.”

The Team Behind Ruum

I used to work in sales, where I spent 50 percent of my days with internal coordination activities. Ever since, it is my fundamental belief that if we take over project management work for all those non-project managers out there, we can make people’s lives so much easier — take any domain, from sales to marketing, HR, or logistics.

That’s why I decided to found Ruum by SAP together with Stefan Ritter. Through SAP’s intrapreneurship program, we took our idea to a fundable stage and joined the SAP.iO Venture Studio for incubation. We’re still SAP employees but stepped away from our day jobs to run our Berlin-based startup team, which is working day and night to boost productivity and teamwork on top of any business process.
