Port of San Diego utilizes SAP cloud apps
The Unified Port of San Diego, a federal agency that manages port activity, has said that it sees significant benefit in adding SAP cloud applications to its core ERP estate software.
Joy Hunter, senior business systems analyst at UPSD, is currently managing a project to implement SAP’s Cloud for Travel solution, which will integrate with its ERP estate (version 6.6).
Hunter said that the port wants to use as many cloud-based solutions as possible because it is cost effective and they need to make ‘money work for the public.’ Cloud for Travel lets UPSD eliminate paper receipts, using images submitted through mobile-based applications instead.
525 port employees will use the cloud app once it’s deployed. Hunter said that once it goes live, Cloud for Travel, the time it takes to process put qualifying expenses for employee trips will drop from up to 18 hours to three.
