  • West Trax designed the Benchmark Express® family of services specifically to provide metrics that would help organisations establish and continually optimise the value and strategic benefits gained from their investments in SAP. The services help clients measure whether they are currently getting the optimal return by focusing on the following questions: How much custom code is in the system and how much is being used / unused? How much does it cost to support the custom code? How much can be saved by optimising the amount of custom code? How much SAP standard functionality is being paid for and how much is used? In which Enterprise Areas? How much unused standard potential exists for each Enterprise Area? Are there performance problems? How can they be minimised? Are the users using the system as intended? Are there quality and compliance problems? How can they be eliminated?
