Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business One

It is currently being used for accounting and finance and will also be used by manufacturing when we get to that stage. Entire organization will use it. SAP consolidates everything onto one platform and will help us manage our inventory and manufacturing processes better than QuickBooks.
  • The user interface is easy to navigate.
  • Reports are easily created in order to analyze data.
  • Inventory is tracked in an efficient manner.
  • SAP doesn't allow for there to be updates to inventory items once they have been created. It would be ideal if updates to items could be made.
  • It has allowed us to track inventory efficiently.
Yes - The initial phase included accounting, finance, and inventory modules. The end phase will include the manufacturing module.
The team provided great support and continues to assist with any questions we have with SAP.
SAP business one provided a more complete solution since all modules are included in their package. Other ERP providers charged extra for each module that was implemented. SAP was more economical than other providers.
SAP Business One is well suited for a small to mid-sized company that has inventory and manufacturing processes.

Partner Experience

  • in-person training
We had a couple of classroom style trainings and a couple of one-on-one trainings.
I have not used the online training offered.
When we needed to add additional account determinations in the set up. They walked me through the process over the phone.
Timely and accurate support all of the time.

  • Integration of purchase orders to goods receipt to invoices
  • Set up of the account determination. You really need to know what to do here since this set up drives a lot of the transactions in SAP.

Using SAP Business One

3 - Accounting
Finance
Purchasing
We use Stellar One Consulting for any SAP support needs.
  • SAP has a well developed Accounting module
  • We are still waiting to fully implement SAP (Production module). That is the area that we will see how SAP helps our organization.
  • When we have sales, we will see how SAPs service module functions along with warranty tracking on products sold.
We will definitely renew SAP.

Evaluating SAP Business One and Competitors

Yes - SAP replaces QuickBooks. We needed a more robust software for inventory tracking and production of products.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
The features available was the single most important factor. We wanted a solution that offered everything in order for us to use these modules as we expand our business.

SAP Business One Support

No - Don't require it now. Maybe in the future when we open up the production module.
