5. Next expectation

- Linking to SAP -

 At M company, there is a schedule to implement ERP package named [SAP]. The schedule is to start go-live of Asprova with linking to SAP on June 2018. Toward linking to SAP, Asprova training will be started again from January 2018. For that task, CSI have already discussed about requests toward current usage of Asprova.


- Next expectation toward Asprova -

 Current Gantt Chart is hard to see because of too many numbers and letters on it. Then, though the displayed information could be decreased, but it is still hard to explain detail to manager. For example, if it is able to show such as how much percent of the rest and how long until reaching due date, it would be usable as report for manager and it is preferred. Also, progress information is also preferred. About this scope, the user want to consult with CSI later.

 Beside, it would be good if multiple staffs are able to use. Currently, staffs are able to use Asprova by only 1 PC. If able to work without limiting number of staffs, such as 1 staff for drafting schedule and 1~2 staffs for checking at the same time, it would be more convenient. And, if authorized staff is able to see Asprova screen instantly, it would be able to show Gantt Chart to other staffs, and the user think they could expect better effectiveness.
