How does the Remote SAP Access work?
Access to our SAP training systems is via the internet - all you need is the SAP GUI version 7 or higher. If you don't have a GUI we will send you a download link and installation instructions.

Our system offers you access to all user and configuration transactions for all modules (except for user maintenance and basis/system administration functions). You can play & practice as much as you want, including setting up your own entities, configuration, master data and transactions.
 
What is the difference between individual SAP access and private SAP access?
When you sign up for individual SAP access you will be assigned a user ID in our public, shared SAP systems. With a private SAP access subscription you do not have to share the system with anyone. You control the configuration and do not have to worry about someone else overwriting or changing it. This protection is critical when you rely on the system for sales demos, training scenarios/exercises or as a development platform.

How quickly do I get my user ID and password?
It typically takes just a few hours to activate your account if we receive your order during our business hours - if not, we'll set you up within 1 business day. We will send you an email with your user ID and password.
  Top top
 
What kind of internet connection do I need?
We recommend a high speed connection via DSL or Cable. If you have a ISDN or dial-up connection you can still connect to the SAP systems but it will be slow.
  Top top
 
What kind of computer or operating system do I need?
If you purchased your computer within the last 10 years or so and are running a Windows (WIN 95 or higher) or MAC operating system it will work just fine.
  Top top
 
I have a MAC computer - will that work?
Yes, it will. You can use the SAP Java GUI that allows you to run SAP on your computer.
  Top top
 
Is the system available 24/7?
Yes, it is! However, we take the systems down on the first Saturday of each month for routine maintenance and back-ups. This downtime typically lasts for about 8 hours. Like everyone else we are not immune to technical glitches and have to work through issues which may take extended periods of downtime. In these rare cases we will offer either a refund (full or partial) or free access time.
  Top top
 
Does this subscription renew automatically?
Yes, it does. All SAP access subscriptions renew automatically until you cancel it. To cancel simply send us an email before it renews - that's it. If you don't want your subscription to renew automatically send us an email - we'll make sure you don't get charged automatically.
  Top top
 
Can I use multiple computers to access the systems?
Yes, you can! You can use any computer and switch back and forth (i.e. between a work computer and a home computer) - however, please remember that you may not share your user ID with other people.
  Top top
 
How fast are the systems? How many people are on it?
We have a dedicated T1 line and have users from all over the world! Connection speed has never been an issue for our students. Also, we keep the number of users per server to a minimum and typically have an average of only 20 users online!
  Top top
 
How often do you refresh the systems?
We typically refresh our systems every 6 months. That means your data will be available for a long time and you don't have to worry about re-doing all your work every 30 days.
  Top top
 
Can I switch between systems?
Yes, you can. We can switch your subscription from one system to another free of charge once every month.
  Top top
 
Do you apply OSS notes and Hot Packs to fix bugs?
Yes, we do. While we do not implement individual OSS notes (there are simply too many of them) we do apply SAP's Hot Packs and other patches on the first Saturday of every month.
  Top top
 
Do I have access to all transactions & modules?
You have access to all user and configuration transactions for all functional modules, incl. FI/CO, MM, SD, HR, etc. However, we do restrict access to certain user maintenance and basis/system administration transactions to ensure a reliable environment for all SAP users. If you require SAP_ALL authorizations we offer a special ECC 6.0 server for this.
  Top top
 
What about access to System Administration and other Basis functions?
We have a special ECC 6.0 server where we offer SAP_ALL authorizations for people that want to learn these functions.
  Top top
 
Can I get ABAP access?
Yes, you can for an additional fee. We have a number of developer user IDs available for all systems. Development user IDs are assigned on a first come, first served basis. We reserve the right to re-assign you to a different user ID if we find that there is no development activity.
  Top top
 
Why do you charge extra for ABAP access?
Because SAP charges us extra for a developer's user ID - therefore, we need to charge a small extra fee for developer user IDs.
  Top top
 
Do you have IDES installed and do your systems have sample data already?
Yes, we do! The IDES (International Demo and Education System) provides a fully functional SAP system, including full configuration, master data and transactions. You can see how SAP configured the system and learn from their set-up. Also, the IDES data includes full sample data like master records and transactions in all modules.
  Top top
 
Do you have any add-on systems such as BW, CRM, PI, etc.?
Yes, we offer many different systems based on demand. We have BW/BI, CRM, Netweaver Portals, Solution Manager, etc. and all systems are connected. To see a list of all available systems click here: SAP Access
  Top top
 
Do you offer multi-user or long-term discounts?
Yes, we do! If you have 5 or more users we will extend a 10% volume discount. Also, if you sign up for SAP access for 3 months or 1 year we will extend a discount ranging from 20-25%.
  Top top
 
Do you offer any support?
Absolutely! We offer email support 7 days a week via our online help desk system! Simply open a help desk ticket here: http://sapaccess.helpdeskconnect.com

We respond & resolve most issues within 1 business day. We support all issues related to system access and security and we will, of course, help you get set up. We do not, however, offer configuration or desktop support, nor do we provide one-on-one training.

Is this legal?
Yes, we are an official SAP customer and own our SAP license. All our systems are fully licensed versions of SAP - not some demo version like you find with other SAP Access providers.
  Top top
 
What if it just doesn't work for me after I buy access?
We want you to be 100% satisfied with your SAP access! If you don't like our service or support tell us in the first 10 days and we'll refund your money - no questions asked!

Can I access the SAP systems via my iPad?
Yes, you can. All you need is this app: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sap-launcher/id423475534?mt=8
