The tools enable you to generate documentation 50 percent faster, secure the segregation of duties already in the design phase and sync up with SAP® systems faster. They are the result of the vast ARIS insights and experience gained by Software AG’s GCS in some of the most demanding real-world projects. In detail, our ARIS tools are: 
Document generator for ARIS
Document generator for ARIS helps you generate manuals in Microsoft® Word in half the time and, at the same time, reduce errors, gaps and redundancies. Choose from different manual design variations and quickly modify the design with just a few clicks. 
Segregation of duties for ARIS tool
When designing processes and applications, you need to consider the functional separation of organizations and roles that legal specifications often require. Our segregation of duties tool helps you analyze violations predictively and quickly. You can more easily keep processes compliant by updating governance, risk and compliance rule sets. This tool also automatically recognizes new conflicts and violations in the design phase. 
Synchronization preparation in ARIS for SAP® Solution
Before synchronizing ARIS for SAP Solutions to SAP® Solution Manager, certain prerequisites have to be fulfilled. Using our sync prep report, instead of manually maintaining attributes and symbols, will save you time, reduce errors and check for breaks in modeling conventions.
