The software solution SAP Business ByDesign now provides integration of the Web sites used most in daily business: Google, Business Wire, GoYellow, Hoover’s, and Morningstar. In addition, users can access map services and route planners such as Falk Online, MapQuest, and NAVTEQ/Map24. The goal is to make business users’ everyday work easier and combine the solution’s functions with online information services.

For example, these online portals enable users to obtain image material and videos or subscribe to RSS feeds of current business news at any time. Hoover’s is an information portal through which companies and branches of industry can network with other experts and managers. Morningstar, meanwhile, provides independent investment analyses and financial data.

To make sure that their next business trip remains free of traffic jams and dead ends, users of SAP Business ByDesign can now also access map services and route planners. Along with Falk Online’s services for Germany, NAVTEQ/Map24 keeps travelers on track in Great Britain, France, Italy, and Spain.

Users in Germany, China, France, Great Britain, India, and the United States can currently access these Web services through SAP Business ByDesign, and an expansion to further preconfigured services is planned for the solution’s next release in the fall.
