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.

I think SAP is more suited for warehouses and drop shipping clients, not a fan of SAP for other clients services where there could be room for improvement. I think the note taking feature needs to be more compatible with invoices, especially when there is room for client dispute. The note feature on SAP was also not able to show the full details of the conversation. I believe they should adopt note taking from Zendesk.

Pros

  • Retail focus
  • Single source for all inventory control requirements
  • Power-to-cost ratio
  • Training package
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo
  • Cost Effective: even with add-ons from a third party, SAP Business One still wins in terms of cost compared to larger ERP providers such SAP All in One.
  • Stable Accounting module. Financial accounting is no stranger to users who use any other ERP systems, it provides standard reports and operations. The core financial accounting function is stable and accurate.
  • Flexibility to Customize. Users can customize by creating user defined fields, alerts, approvals to define thier own workflow. The UI form can be edited by hiding or moving field. The Query Generator is easy to use, even by a user who is not familiar with SQL. Users can create a customized report.
  • Strong Support. Strong SAP support, a wealth of training materials that are easy to obtain. SAP continuously improves on new functionality. Recently SAP added new functionality such as allowing users to define the bin location for inventory items, define dimensions in cost accounting, add resources in production module etc.
  • Availability of in depth solution via Integration with third party add-on. Add-ons are available in various areas including WMS, project management, POS, and web portals.

Cons

  • 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
  • I think the only issue I encountered was that sometimes things would function, i.e., the generation of invoices. And the next month (because we did it on a monthly basis), they would not.
  • It also tends to freeze.

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.

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

  1. Much cheaper, faster and easier to implement and maintain than its big brother SAP ERP
  2. Rapid learning curve for existing and new employee (simple GUI, ability to export to Excel easily, simple master data...)
  3. Fits well in small organizations with "Jack of all trades" users
  4. Easy to support (well known MS SQL database, runs well on Windows platforms...)

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.

Return on Investment

  • Short training time reduced costs and increased sales which increased ROI
  • Less downtime which reduced costs and increased ROI
  • Good customer support which boosts employee morale which leads to efficiencies and higher sales which increased ROI
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo
  • SAP Business One provides all accounting and tax data accurately, records sales and purchases, and quickly allows for inventory analysis. The ROI on these modules is positive.
  • While Add-on integration causes problems, and involves support from internal staff as well as external consultants constantly, overall it speeds up processing of orders, and improves inventory management.
