Walk away with lessons and insight from an SAP Mobile Time and Travel implementation. Gain a critical overview of functionality that could benefit your organization.
Key Concept

The SAP Mobile Time and Travel (SAP MTT) bundle allows travelers to record their working time and travel expenses on their laptop without a network connection. SAP MTT has the same look and feel as the Employee Self-Service scenarios in SAP NetWeaver Portal.

With SAP Employee Self-Service (SAP ESS), employees can access SAP Travel Management and Cross-Application Time Sheet (CATS) via SAP NetWeaver Portal. New advances in mobile technology bring enhanced convenience. Did you know that SAP Human Capital Management (HCM) users can now track their time and travel expenses from any laptop, any time, even without a network connection?

SAP Mobile Timesheet (MTS) and SAP Mobile Travel Expenses (MTR), offered as the SAP Mobile Time and Travel (SAP MTT) bundle, extends SAP NetWeaver Mobile functionality to provide improvements for SAP HCM users. In this article, we’ll examine the enhanced features SAP MTS and SAP MTR offer, dissect the technical landscape and its requirements, and share lessons learned from our recent implementation of SAP MTS and MTR. You can use the information in this article to evaluate how mobile technology could streamline your time and travel records.
