Keep it short and simple, this may seem like common sense, however your CXO gets a lot of information and great ideas thrown at them day in and day out. Your pitch should be short. This means you´ll have to do the homework with the information provided below ahead of time.
You can transform your IT to a strategic team. If you decide to go with Liquid UI, you´re ABAP´er can focus on higher level business process issues, and involve users early in the design process with quick turnarounds. Day to day programming that typically fills up your IT team´s agenda is eliminated, thus giving them the freedom to work on strategic initiatives. Documentation for our technology can be found below.
Come with a timeline. Liquid UI comes with a major benefit - you can get up and running relatively quickly vs. months of hard-coded development in a low-level language. Bring your CXO a timeline and an easy project to get started with. Don´t bite off more than you can chew, starting with an easy project will safeguard the rest of your company´s transition.

Higher revenues with increased sales. By helping employees work faster, they become more productive. New recruits will quickly learn how to carry out common tasks and all employees will learn how to use new functions more quickly. But most importantly, your SAP master data maintains a higher level of quality that is critical for transactional data that run your business operations to mitigate risks and comply to regulations.
Boast about a non-disruptive approach to mobility. Think about a seamless transition between desktop usage and mobile usage. Think about the functionality required for certain roles in your organization and the subset of a business process that your users want to do. With users spending their day navigating through screen after screen of buried input fields and irrelevant information, think about screens that are relevant to users whether they are sitting at their desk or on a mobile device, providing mobility and freedom, connected and collaborative at all times of the day, without any obstacles. So in CXO speak, "higher productivity, innovation, and collaboration" - even for his/her busy schedule. You can download sample presentations below.

Samples ROI - Tyson Foods
With complete visibility of the entire fleet´s PM schedule, Tyson was able to manage preventive maintenance more effectively. For soft dollar savings, Tyson now had a usable system to do proper inspections and maintenance while viewing the fleet as a whole so that the different fleet directors could ensure their equipment was being maintained properly resulting in less breakdowns, and running more miles with less equipment.
The warranty process alone returned $4.3 million over the last 6 years
Over $75,000 savings in decommissioning the Vehicle Legacy System
Once the benefits were proven in the 42 shops for Fleet Maintenance, GuiXT was then deployed to other departments for Plant Maintenance and Material Management. These were much larger endeavors with 130 plants using PM, and 20 hatcheries, 20 feed mills, and 8,000 users now using GuiXT successfully.
Tyson staffs one person to do all the GuiXT work. This person has an IT background and is usually fresh out of college who starts out working with GuiXT, then grows into other parts of the business.
