As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

As we have already described, it is an ideal tool for small and medium companies, with a well designed ERP system and adjusted to the reality of the business. It is a sober, reliable tool with extensive experience in the development of administrative tools. The cost-benefit ratio is appropriate for companies of this size. The points of improvement are the integration with other platforms and the visual interface for average users.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • It allows making a real follow-up of the state of the company, without the need to wait for periodic reports. This provides a corrective tool for situations that deviate from the standard.
  • It prevents the business areas from working separately so the information is not duplicated and is managed effectively by all involved. thus avoiding conflicts and optimizing resources.
  • It allows the proper management of the client portfolio, accurately projecting the inputs and outputs of resources, products, orders, and invoices. Therefore, the inventory and cash flow are properly managed.
  • By correctly managing cash inflows and customer requirements, a real plan of goals can be established that is adjusted to the company's capabilities.
  • It is a standardized program in its use, with a parent company with decades in the market and renowned, which provides adequate user support to the tool.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • The learning curve is greater than other programs of its type. You need staff who previously worked with the tool. The learning time is going to be high. Being a more developed tool, the user requirements are high compared to other similar ones.
  • Visually, it is a sober program. I believe that the presentation could be improved by adjusting it to the user level with which it is worked. In order to make it more user-friendly, we must not forget that a tool such as an ERP will be used by all areas of the company, which includes inexperienced personnel up to senior levels.
  • They should improve the integration with other tools that do not belong to the SAP family. In today's world, emphasis should be placed on emails, social networks, mobile applications, applications of calls and messaging, as well as providing adequate storage access on the cloud.
  • The implementation of the tool is in accordance with the type of program, however, for people who have not worked with programs of the SAP family, it will require more implementation time, as well as intensive user training courses.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

I cannot run my business without SAP Business One in place. I only consult on on product and that is SAP Business One. Business volume goes to zero if I don't use SAP Business One. It is the best product on the market - head and shoulders above other ERP packages I have looked at or implemented in the past.

Being a high profile tool, a user level with specific experience and skills is required to use the program. Which deserves special attention in the junior staff, requires a good management of the administrative part to develop all the benefits of the program. For young and inexperienced people the interface is not flashy. Although it is a very complete program.

Over the past two years SAP has added a great deal of new SAP Business One on-line training for version 9.0 and 9.1. Most of the training is very strong, but some is difficult to understand and follow. Additionally, SAP still has a few holes in their on-line training around Production, Bill-of-Materials, MRP and Service.

Conduct interviews with the administrative and accounting areas, ask about the experience with the tool, make free test modules to detect the possibilities of use, as well as, validate the necessary investment for the implementation of the program with the system area, to determine if it is the most viable option

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
SAP Business One is much more straight forward in processes flow than Sage Pro. I find that A lot of Sage Pro was convoluted and difficult for users to follow. Data was buried, and reporting was extremely difficult. We do not have similar problems with SAP Business One.

For most small businesses, the only way you outgrow SAP Business One is if the nature of your business changes radically. Going from 1 to 50 users is quite easy with SAP B1. Going beyond 50 may require moving to the Hana SAP B1 platform to maintain or improve performance, but the path is there.
Add-ons to SAP B1 can also be added as specific needs are encountered that are not closely met by the standard product. These may be required early in the product life because of the nature of your business, or as you expand the use of SAP B1.

  • Capital equipment company heavy user of manufacturing functions: full cost rollup functionality eliminated errors in knowing the full cost of a machine (11 level BOM, 3000 plus parts). Let to proper pricing of end products and improved profitability.
  • Automotive aftermarket company - using SAP enabled them to quickly add and manage 600+ parts to their product mix for a major retail customer - doubling their business with that customer.
  • A manufacturer of arts and crafts products integrated SAP to Amazon and generated an incremental $60,000 in revenues per month.
  • A distributor with sales employees all over North America integrated the sales employee portal to SAP and now allows these employees to have up to the minute real time information on orders, invoices, stock, etc. - on their i-Pads, while at the customer.
