INFORMATION FOR DEPARTMENTS
Please select your department:
Take data exchange between Excel and SAP into your own hands.
SimDia² is the only data exchange solution specifically designed for SAP users. With SimDia², SAP users for the first time are able to perform all data transfers between Excel and SAP completely independently. Unlike with other tools, no IT support is necessary – if so desired.
SimDia² works entirely without programming and can be applied by any experienced SAP user. With SimDia², you can easily automate SAP processes of any complexity, from simple field assignments to extensive transaction sequences.
SimDia² integrates itself seamlessly into the familiar SAP GUI user interface. The entire handling works via simple button clicks, and the data exchange is performed transparently and always traceable within the accustomed SAP masks. This means you don’t have to get used to a new program and can get started right away.
The integrated Recording Wizard supports you step by step during the preparation and processing of the data transfers. This allows you to create the complete recording for an automatic data transfer faster than even transferring a single data set manually.
90 percent less effort – 100 percent safety.
With SimDia², all data input is made via the SAP GUI instead of accessing the database directly (here the link to the official security assessment of SAP GUI Scripting by SAP). This guarantees that the SAP roles and authorizations concept is fully complied with and that all checking and validation measures provided by SAP are implemented. This ensures that SimDia² users can only perform actions in SAP that are specifically permitted for them by the SAP system.
In addition, you can individually set the authorizations of each specific SimDia² user via the supplied admin tool. For example, you can specify that only the IT or individual key users may create and edit recordings, which are then forwarded to the departments for performing the subsequent data transfers.
Highly compatible & ready-to-use
- with all current versions of Windows, Excel and SAP (incl. S/4HANA)
- with all databases including HANA
- locally and in remote environments (e.g. Citrix)
- with all SAP modules and transactions
- without modifications to Excel or SAP
No installation, integration or setup in Excel or SAP is required.
Crucial data can be found throughout your enterprise. But often not where they belong.
Avoid poor data quality and availability
Data exchange between Excel and SAP is a common part of daily work with SAP systems. Despite the increasing use of platforms for central data management, enterprise-relevant data is often still scattered and available only in simple Excel tables.
Getting this data into the central SAP system is currently taking up a lot of time and effort. It either requires complex programming or is still done by hand, which is both highly laborious and error-prone. As a result, essential data often only makes it into the SAP system late, incompletely, or even not at all, with the corresponding consequences:
- Delays and stagnant processes
- Inconsistent or duplicate data pools
- Enterprise planning based on incomplete data
- Misdecisions caused by outdated or incorrect information
Gain higher productivity, more capacity and lower costs
SimDia² solves this problem by automating the data exchange between Excel and SAP. In this way, you not only ensure significantly better data quality in your company, but also create free capacities in specialist departments and IT.
This is due to the fact that SimDia² reduces the time and effort required for data exchange by more than 90 percent compared to previous methods. In addition, SimDia² does not incur any one-off costs and amortizes itself from as little as one saved hour per month.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
The following is a real case from a large German industrial corporation:
Annual recruitment of 2400 trainees
For the annual recruitment of 2400 trainees, their basic data needs to be transferred into the SAP system. The collection and provision of the basic data takes place over the year and is distributed over about 80 individual Excel files. The data is transferred to SAP using transaction PA40 (personnel measures), where several screens must be filled in for each data set. This transfer was previously performed manually and took about 5 minutes per data set.
After the migration of this process to SimDia², the data transfer to SAP is now done fully automatic. The time required to prepare and start a transfer is less than 1 minute per Excel file. The import is then performed automatically in the background.
The process itself was successfully migrated in less than an hour – from unpacking the software over setting up a directory structure to the completion of the import project.
Comparison: Manual data input vs. Automatic SAP import with SimDia²
|2400 data sets|
x 5 minutes per data set
= 200 hours
|80 Excel tables|
x 1 Minute per table
= 1.5 hours
x 60 Euro / hour*
= 12,000 Euro
x 60 Euro / hour*
= 90 Euro
*) Full-cost hourly rate assumed for calculation example
For our case, this translates into annual savings of 198.5 hours and 11,910 Euro – for one single process automated with SimDia². If you want to know just how much time and effort you can save in the future with SimDia², then simply use our savings calculator:
CALCULATE YOUR SAVINGS POTENTIAL NOW
Of course we are aware that your exact effort is influenced by many more values and can fluctuate considerably every month. Above all, the time and effort per imported data set depends on so many criteria (SAP transaction used, complexity of the data, number of data fields per data set etc.) that only an approximate average value can be given here.
The savings calculator should therefore only provide you with an orientation aid on how high your current effort for data exchange between Excel and SAP is, and whether the use of SimDia² is profitable for you. In general, if your current effort amounts to more than one hour per month, you should take a closer look at SimDia². We would be happy to tell you more about it!
We would like to point out in this regard that the price for SimDia² is not included in the result of the savings calculator. This is simply due to the fact that the license requirements are very different for each company and therefore a serious blanket price statement is not possible. For this reason, we will analyze your individual situation in detail together with you and, based on this, prepare an offer tailored to your company’s needs which exactly matches your intended use.
We will gladly take the time to analyze your individual use case together with you and find out how SimDia² can best support you. Just get in touch with us!
