Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business One

We used SAP B1 to manage our sales pipeline. As a reseller, I also used it to demonstrate and sell to companies in manufacturing and distribution.

Pros

  • Manages items through BOM, tracking serialized components and batch/lot traceability
  • Manages many aspects of the business; manufacturing, inventory, sales, distribution, service, etc
  • Audit trails, detailed logs of all system activity by the user. Sox compliant.

Cons

  • At times, the on-premise deployment can be a tad slow
  • Not the cheapest price option
  • Maybe too much software for true small business
  • Great tool for companies looking for a more robust option than QB or Sage
  • Great for companies that need rigid & accurate procedures to meet compliance standards (gov’t, pharma, etc)
  • Bring automation to companies that overspend on manual data entry
Pricing, global reach, great fit for certain industries. A robust tool that can effectively run a small business and scale into the tens of millions in revenue.
Companies that have many aspects of their operations would be a good fit, great step up for companies that have outgrown QuickBooks.
