SAP Business One would be more useful if it contained tools to acommodate the growing need of online sales. A more complete shipping module which handles tracking numbers with the common couriers would be great.
A built in warehouse management system would be great designed to be used with barcode scanners

Overall I love the program and it is an imperative program for us to use daily now. I would strongly recommend that if you get this program that you have someone that can be fully trained in every way and every program that this program uses so that you can utilize it to the fullest extent.

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.

SAP Business One is one of the best business management software available in the market. SAP Business One can be used to manage the various business areas such as inventory and warehousing, purchasing decisions, sales processes, customer relationship management, service management, project management and financial management. SAP Business One enable to visualize the insight from the business operation in real time and improves in better business decisions making. It is a robust enterprise system and the major business processes are supported for most of the organizations. The limitation of Human resources module of SAP Business One needs to consider for all human capital management functionalities to be performed on a single system without interfacing with the other systems.

Like i said for complex implementations and use with other systems SAP [Business One] is great. You can create automatic warehousing if you want with this system as it base. We used it to integrate CRM systems with the production orders to make a seamless automated order process from purchase to warehouse to costumer. And it works great!

But with this it will cost you for implementing and get it to run, next to the training of people to use the system. So again for big companies i would suggest SAP [Business One], but for smaller ones and even mid... There might be better and cheaper options for your needs!

I am very likely (10) to recommend SAP Business One to my colleagues. I have had a great experience with the system with little to no issues. I like the peace of mind it provides me when performing my duties. Working in Events Management, it is really helpful having a system like this to monitor inventory and provide me with restock alerts.

This version of SAP Business One is ideal for small and medium-sized companies. SAP Business One helps in the process of controlling financial and company assets and it allows for faster communication with suppliers by sending quotation requests from within SAP. I do not believe that SAP Business One is the best tool for CRM. We have other options that are more specialized for this type of relationship.

I think SAP Business One is well suited in almost any company. The key is having a good implementation and regular maintenance. Training is always key for software and I think SAP could do a better job with marketing training courses for its customers. It seems like SAP Business One is a lower level product so they want to push you into using the full SAP.

SAP Business One is well suited for small and medium-sized enterprises. It integrates the basic processes to manage a business. SAP Business One can be extended through modules, but the final price could be very high.

The system is easy to use, intuitive, great for order/customer management and financial reporting. It is a big help to streamline processes in the company. It offers excellent visibility of what is happening. I love the reporting and the Query Generator. But you have to tweak the system if you need special functionalities so you will need a good SAP service provider.

SAP B1

Although B1 seems to be designed for SMBs, it is extremely costly to implement. "Out-of-the-Box" functionality is minimal. It is better suited for medium enterprises who have the budget to customize SAPB1 as needed for their operations.

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 B1 is great for tracking inventory, purchase orders, and customer shipment workflows. It is a really great database engine to have. The one down side is it is often difficult to navigate through the workflows or to quickly find information on your own. Other software is often needed (like a B2B website or barcode scanning software) to allow a user quicker access to information.

The license cost per user is a little expensive, and then annually you have to pay approximately 20% of the total cost of your licenses for the support from SAP, but what you get in return is totally worth it. You get a world class ERP for your company and the support is really good. The main benefit of the system is that you have all the departments in your company connected in real time.
