Create a new sales contact for a customer

With Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP, you can view existing and add new sales contacts to a Duet Enterprise Customer Collaboration Workspace. New sales contacts that you add with Duet are stored in SAP, so that they are available to other users that have the appropriate permissions.

When you are offline and not connected to the SAP system, you can make your sales contacts available in Microsoft Outlook. You can create new sales contacts from Outlook and then synchronize them to SAP.
