ERP SAP Benchmark

A company's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is fundamental to its effective management but it can also be very expensive, so it is vital to ensure that it is supported and maintained efficiently and effectively.

Aupec’s ERP SAP Benchmark benefits clients by providing a view of ERP and particularly SAP performance in terms of cost, efficiency, service quality, technology landscape, business processes and usage. Analysis is provided at Enterprise level and for major lines of business such as Corporate Functions, Upstream and Downstream.


“The Benchmark will not only help us set our strategy, it will be used as fact based data to justify our strategy”

“This has given us a view of our environment in a way we have never had before. We can see our data, environment and how we compare in one holistic view”

“This Benchmark has been one of the most complete of which we have taken part of, providing us different visions about our SAP systems management performance regarding spending, technology, sourcing or complexity. It has allowed us to deeply know the reality of our systems and processes compared to others, preparing us to establish an improvement path to follow based on the characteristics of the Top Performers.”

ERP SAP Benchmark Packages

  • ERP SAP Business Perspective Benchmark: This benchmarking package provides analysis of the ERP Systems Evolution, Change and Release Management, Maintenance and Project/Project Management Performance.
  • ERP SAP Technology Perspective Benchmark: This benchmarking package provides in depth analysis of the Technology Landscape, Systems Evolution, SAP Modules in Use and analysis of System Level Data.

The three separate benchmarking packages can be combined in any permutation.
