Implementing a mobile handheld device to automate and process your SAP transactions can be an expensive and complex affair. Automating critical SAP transactions such as work orders, inventory management or a point of sale solution require the ability to scan bar code through a mobile handheld device. However, these mobile handheld devices can be an extremely expensive proposition with devices ranging anywhere between $2000 - $6500, depending on your configuration and requirement with associated complex infrastructure to support offline requirements. A cost-complexity-benefit case analysis has traditionally limited the use of handheld devices to automate critical business locations, users and SAP transactions. However with the advent of smart phones, tablets and secured bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, your employee’s smart phones or corporate owned devices can be converted into handheld devices using disruptive RFID peripherals. These RFID peripherals now provide the ability to further automate SAP transactions that fell through the cracks in your cost-complexity-benefit case analysis of a handheld device.
