NSW Trade and Investment has signed a $14.5 million, three-year agreement with German business software company SAP to use its ByDesign software, hosted on a German server, to run finance, human resources and payroll functions for 16 member agencies.  The agreement will eventually see ByDesign taken up by up to 8500 users, and SAP says it is the largest roll-out of ByDesign world-wide.


The agreement also covers the use by NSW Trade of SAP’s payroll and human resources application.


The Department is hoping to save up to $12.5 million annually as a result of the new system.
