SAP Business One

SAP Business One provides a comprehensive and sophisticated financial system that also easily extends to add the functions of a true ERP system including modules for production, HR, CRM, and MRP. I think it represents the company's small to midsize enterprise offering.
Some important benefits of choosing SAP Business One is that it is a complete [set of] small-business essentials in a single system and it helps you to save money for implementation.

The biggest pro is that everyone can easily use Zoho Books. Secondly I would say Zoho Books is the world's best accounting software which is very helpful by helping me in managing money flowing in or flowing outside of our organization. It has played a key role in making our decision making power strong.

Pros

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.
Ronald Socorro | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Books

  • Zoho Books invoicing and receipting features are second to none. We find it easy to quickly invoice clients and add items to their bills and also for our own receipting internally.
  • The accounting features are great for our accounting team to be able to see where we are financially and how the business is doing.
  • The ability to add contacts and run a mini CRM channel with clients within Zoho is invaluable. Since we use this in conjunction with our other CRM channels, it helps to have a centralized place to follow up and see through a sales funnel.
  • Zoho Books allows us to take payments from clients around the globe a feature we didn't have when we used another accounting system.
  • The pricing for Zoho Books is fairly reasonable for an SME organization which is a great for us as it pays itself back many times over every month.
Nathan Sichilongo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

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.
John SCOTT Livingston | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Books

  • When converting to Zoho Books from another accounting software, this seemed a bit difficult but this process is never easy.
  • There are certain restrictions within modules (estimates/sales orders/invoices/payments) that make it difficult to edit transactions. In many ways this is good, but different from what we have experienced with other accounting software solutions.

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 can help in optimizing the existing business process and enables streamline business processes for the daily activities for all users across the entire organization. The importance realization of SAP Business One implementation is based on the selection of the good reputation partner and its approach for the entire implementation. SAP Business One is a user-friendly and easy to use Enterprise system that the organization can benefit its features and functionalities by utilizing it.

Some features lack of depth in its functionalities as they give the impression that they are incomplete or half-way developed, so it is necessary to optimize some features already present in the software so that it can provide maximum performance and provide a real value to the software. It should be noted that there is a steep in the learning curve when using Zoho Books especially if you are a user who comes from using another accounting software, so you will have to get used to its workflow and operation.

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.

Performance

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.

The people are great. They follow the party line when working with us. There is clearly no intent to provide integration to the employee expenseThere is no intent to make the bank reconciliations system work in a manner consistent with US Accounting principles. There is no intent make the payroll system one that can easily cut a paycheck. Which brings up the fact that adjusting the printing on a check is very laborious and you only get close.

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.

These implementations are not easy. Even a standard implementation can be difficult. With a never-been-done-before implementation, the implementation team and the user team need to be thorough with planning, make a decision on key points, and stick to them before any design happens. Our biggest challenge was not from StellarOne, rather it was from the mid-implementation decisions from our internal team. StellarOne did a great job warning us, implementing our decision, and then helping us adjust our SAP to handle the new direction we took.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Business One

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.

Zoho Books

We had a lot of problems with Exact Online, support-wise and price-wise. So Zoho Books wins on every point there. While Exact offers way more options, it tends to be really slow... and complex. Again Zoho Books wins. If you want an easy-to-use tool and not pay a lot of money, or if you are a small administration office with a few clients, this tool will be perfect for you.

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

SAP Business One

  • 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.
John Bird | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Books

  • Integration: Zoho Books offers out of the box integrations to extend the functionality and connect with the applications you love like MailChimp, Microsoft Outlook, PandaDoc, and Quickbooks, etc.
  • Flexibility makes Zoho Books great!
  • Since I can use forecast reports, I can create customizable sales forecast data from the dashboard to accurately measure revenue forecasts and establish sales quotas.
