Aralco Inventory Management

Aralco Inventory Management is well suited for a retail operation with one or two locations that is expanding to 5+. At that point, there is small enough start-up costs and significant benefits available for this software to assist a company with the inventory and POS challenges associated with rapid growth. Aralco Inventory Management is also particularly helpful for retail companies that have complicated sales orders or a sales fulfillment time that is longer than a day or a week.

In our case, SAP worked great for handling our unique business needs. We were able to construct, deconstruct, and reassemble our products to meet consumer demand. SAP is great for companies that are looking for a centralized place to store their data, and provide reliable, audit-able, transaction data. For a small business with a simple selling structure, or with no inventory, SAP may offer too much for them to fully utilize it.

Pros

Aralco Inventory Management

  • Retail focus
  • Single source for all inventory control requirements
  • Power-to-cost ratio
  • Training package
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

SAP Business One

  • 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

Aralco Inventory Management

  • Lengthy set-up process that requires strong management
  • High base hardware requirements (can't be used with just a phone, for instance)
  • Inventory forecasting is not linked to any external or macro forces
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

SAP Business One

  • 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.

As I said before, it is a first level tool, well developed, and with very strong development support, although the learning curve, its implementation, the cost-benefit ratio, the price and the user experience is not the most suitable for small and medium-sized companies. It is a company with extensive experience, market positioning, technical support and expanded use

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.

The SAP Business One software is up and running every time
you need it as it was planned. In more than 6 years that we have been
using the product, it has never been unavailable and if it ever was, it was because of a planned maintenance window scheduled in the company.

SAP Business One performance depends mostly on the speed of your internal servers, should you have the solution on premise as we do. Sometimes the system tends to be a little slower for some users when others are executing really big reports of performing some batch loads, but generally, the performance is acceptable to all the users.

Even though the price of the support for SAP products in general is a little expensive, you really get what you are paying for. The
support team is really well trained and mostly they will get to the
root of the issue really fast and will always try their best to resolve
your issue ASAP.

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.

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.
