Ariba Procurement is an end to end product cloud-based product. With this tool, we can collaborate and share internally, collaborate and share with suppliers on a single platform, track events and get alerts – this feature is useful for risk management. On the other hand, there is no hesitation to recommend this product.

Since I mostly implement distribution and manufacturing systems, let me address those areas. In those companies the accounting functionality of SAP B1 is very complete and there are no holes.Inventory handling of bins, warehouses and items is superb. The system handles serial controlled items (1:1), batch controlled items (1:many) and normal stock items. The number of SKUs is not an issue - I have one customer with 150,000 SKUs. Hand held devices for data collection are third party add-ons, but there are several options available. The inventory is set up for discrete parts handling. There are few distribution industries where SAP B1 would not be a good fit.The manufacturing functionality was weak until the latest release of SAP B1 in 2014. Now the BOMs support routers and processes - as they should have. Plants making discrete products that follow specific routing steps are excellent candidates for SAP B1. The MRP functionality is very good and allows for quick creation of POs and production orders from the results. New functionality in SAP 9.1 allows for import of transaction data to most SAP processes - so integration to data collection functions on the floor have been streamlined.

Pros

  • Cost Reduction: Definitely this goes well as you are able to get different suppliers with different pricing and you can now select what pricing best suits your present needs.
  • Supplier management: Different suppliers can be easily manage from one tool.
  • Suppliers enjoy visibility of the recruitment bidding process. One can also save the time to respond to online emails by using the platform to communicate with clients.

  • Strong database structure: All documents are interconnected which helps navigate from different documents to financial or inventory information. Also it allows you to have more visibility of the complete process from quote to invoice.
  • Easy to Use: Modules are very self explanatory and windows based software, as you enter data into documents several information comes up automatically as long as it has been setup in the master data records.
  • Ability to customize: SAP Business One has the ability to be customized through add-ons on almost every module.

Cons

  • The system we use is not user friendly, you need a detailed tutorial to understand the processes better.
  • Once the network is not so great, it can take a while trying to upload a document to the cloud.
  • User interface
No photo available
  • Production Module: Allow batches to be reserved for production and expand the functionality more so it is not so basic.
  • Reserve items in sales documents, more specifically Batch Number reservation.
  • When an invoice is credited, it should open the previous sales order to continue with the process rather than keeping it closed.

It is a very complete software, SAP is always releasing new versions to make it more efficient and to provide help on found issues/glitches. If used the right way it can be a very powerful tool on all aspects of the company and can help standardize business processes to make them more efficient and save costs in different areas.

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

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.
