On the other hand, there is no hesitation to recommend this product.

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.

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

Ariba Procurement

  • Ariba Procurement could be more user-friendly. Currently, it requires at least 1-hour to train external users to enter their own invoices in the system.
  • Ariba Procurement could improve on the eSourcing module, making it simpler for suppliers to gain access and participate in the events.
  • Ariba Procurement could improve the SAP > Ariba communication. Certain actions done in SAP are not communicated back to Ariba.
  • The Credit Memo process could improve. When credits are created (CM-CWT) they are reflected in Ariba, but SAP does not fund the actual order.

SAP Business One

  • Following a bench mark process - this seems contradicting to flexibility however we have wished we could follow more of an industry benchmark. Our challenge as a small company has been knowing how to properly use the system. We have discovered that we have set up the system wrong based and are using it improperly which has cause a lot work to correct.
  • Better live reporting options - current we are on prem SQL. Yes SAP is moving to HANA however smaller companies like ourselves are not ready for that. We need to be able to maintain our existing SQL DB. We also have a demand for live BI Reporting. It has been difficult to do this with our current set up.
  • Error handling - have found it very difficult to troubleshoot. Errors are not always clear and answers are hard to find.

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.

SAP Business One is one of the best ERPs for a medium or small business
in the market today. It has a wide variety of modules and it is really
easy to use and set up. You can trace every transaction and know what
user performs it, at what time, and in which date, for all your audit
needs. When comparing SAP to its competition, SAP provides the best
overall solution for the price you are paying. If your business grows,
you'll always have the possibility to upgrade to a much complete version
from the same manufacturer.

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.

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 provides the most robust solution, with modules available for all department managers and even options for customization according to the company's special needs. We especially used the Crystal reports options to provide reports for each module. Overall, even if it's not the least expensive option, it has the best value for money.

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

Ariba Procurement

  • It's helped in reducing supply chain operational costs.
  • Positive: It's cut down on unintended cash flows having a better and formalized payment terms.
  • Positive: It controls unnecessary spending and improve transparency. Now suppliers who cannot meet up with demands are easily disqualified from the process. Also helping to stick with just your preferred specs.

  • Employee efficiency has definitely increased with SAP Business One. This is attributed in a lot of ways to information visibility. Our employees are able to gather the data they need, quickly, and effectively.
  • Identifying inconsistencies in pricing has also been accomplished through use of reporting off individual tables. Previously, we weren't able to access our data in such a way as to enable us to write custom reports in-house.
  • We have also benefited greatly from having a single source of all business information. We utilize SAP Business One exclusively in-house. All documentation is attached to specific orders and Business Partners, as well as serialized equipment that has been sold.
