The mobile app is a fantastic addition to the usefulness of the software!

The initial set up for SAP Business One is difficult for many users. The customer service dept. is very helpful when we get new sale people.

Pros

SAP Business One is the "little brother" of main SAP ERP, but it has nothing less of the big one. In addition it's easy to implement and use and also with an effordable price. All the business areas are well covered as per the "big brother".

Cons

Support in my opinion, can be improuved; there are too long queues for having an answer from local/remote support.

I have used SAP in two previous jobs. I love what it can do, but a common issue I have seen are companies wanting what it offers, but balking at the cost to implement and/or maintain. A poor implementation can be a disaster - make sure the "experts" you rely on have a good track record. Also, lack of training and/or in-house experts (post implementation) can result in poor use of the system, excessively complicated processes, and offline processes (thus defeating much of the real value of the system).

Pros

Very powerful software, very reliable, very good documentation, good training courses available, and an extensive user group (very helpful to get involved with)

Cons

Not easy to just sit down and figure it out, training can be very expensive, implementation and on going in-house support are critical and can also be very expensive

Pros

Before having a real ERP we were using google for pretty much everything. It is so good to finally have everything in the same page especially for inventory - inbound and outbound etc.

Cons

As we were used to work on google before it is been a little challenging to clean all the data before we were able to transfer them to the ERP system. Also here we do not see who changes what so we had to put in place restrictions per department.

The flexibility to modify the product/modules without having to pay a programmer. End User capabilities are good.

I have to use the accounting module of SAP. However, this system is a very dynamic ERP software that can gather data from various areas of your business. This allows for easy access to information in terms of sales, customers service quality and many others.

Pros

It can handle a large amount of data, information can be access with ease and it can capture both quantitative and qualitative information.

Cons

It can be expensive to implement, therefore look at the cost benefits analysis. Also, this is a software for mostly medium to large firms

Advice to Others

Engage the services of a professional to have the system implement and proper training for your staff.

Pros

I usually use the bank management module is very friendly when creating seats and visualize movements in bank, to register suppliers or customers is great because it links the information of the RIF directly with the seniat platform so there is no error at the time of creating a new client, what I like about the system is that it is not integrated like others that have an administrative system and another accounting system that has it all in one single and at the moment of making a record they can be visualized in the reports .

Cons

What I liked the least about this software is that it does not have the necessary support by the company that implements the system, they do not have timely answers to some questions which makes it difficult to work, on the other hand when creating seats if There was an error in the project if you let the change, however, the same thing does not happen with the distribution rule. I feel that it should not happen because it does not cause more impact, as it would be to modify the amount and / or the date of the seat.

Through this tool, I was able to improve the efficiency of the company and have greater control over the activities carried out in the shortest time through a single system, as well as presenting updated information for better decision making and projections. It also allows to control the materials used in the work.

Pros


What I like the most is that it can allow me to optimize the company's operations in an integral way, having access to complete information and therefore helping the company's growth. It also facilitates the control of payments to suppliers and delivery of orders, and improving the control of inventory and costs by unifying several departments of the company.

Cons


What I like the least is that it is expensive to obtain it not only because of the software but because it requires an adequate infrastructure, it is complex to learn how to use it and it does not have a region to enter the payroll

SAP Business one if a very efficient ERP system for small l and medium-sized businesses. The biggest benefit I got from the software is the reporting module which offers reporting capability to pretty much aspect of the business.

Pros

What I like most about this software is the business reporting capability. The software makes it easy to generate financial reports. The other thing about this software is that is it an all in one solution to small and medium sized business. The all important modules like the finance, sales, purchasing, banking, accounting modules are all integrated in the software.

Cons

The only con about the software is that it is that the licence is a bit expensive for some small businesses to afford.

Easy-to-use ERP System with not-so-complicated functionalities.

Pros

SAP Business One is an ERP System that is designed for Small and Medium Entities.

With a highly interactive Graphical User Interface (GUI), it allows users to easily navigate the system within a few minutes of using it.

Another good feature of SAP Business One is how it divided the different business functions by modules which allow a point-and-click capability to users.

Unlike its more complex counterpart, SAP All-in-One, SAP Business One removed the need to use T-codes which is a huge advantage for users who are not particular in memorizing hundreds of codes to process transactions.

With that in mind, SAP Business One still covers almost all of the fundamental business process of entities along with the capability to be customized using Table and Fields Management Queries.

Cons

Considering that it is an ERP Software, the adaption of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles is not fully maximized. Users that are particular in accounting might notice that some of the journal entries are not in accordance with the applicable standard in their country. This is due to the fact that there's only a limited option when it comes to the Chart of Account to be used as well as the customization of accounts.

Cons

From previous versions, the Software Development Kit (SDK) has had some errors that are still not fixed in the newest versions of the product. You can not affect the database directly trough SQL queries, so if you want to develop new functions inside the app, you have to use the SDK that includes method for each object in the system.

SAP Business One is an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suite which primarily serves small to medium-sized businesses with up to one hundred employees and less than $75 million in annual revenue. SAP Business One was originally developed by Israel-based TopManage Financial Systems, which was acquired by SAP in 2002. This move was a bold signal that SAP intends to serve businesses well downmarket and an acknowledgment that a new, specialized product was needed to address the requirements of those companies. SAP Business One has been well-received within the manufacturing, retail, service, and distribution industries, and can address other vertical market needs as well.

Flexible and Robust
SAP B-1 software is the perfect fit for a small-midsize company that would like a fully integrated ERP system.
I was able to implement the system in less than 5 months from start to finish with the assistance of a couple of consultants. This included fully integrated Sales force and customer service, inventory and cost of sales, AP, AR and financial reporting.
It is a highly flexible system allowing for multiple custom codes and fields for the user to assign for reporting and extracting information. We were able to report complicated sales and commission on a multi- tiered structure with ease.
Flexibility is also built in as you can add modules as you go, allowing the system to grow with your business and your changing needs.
They also offer industry specific solutions, right out of the box.

Pros

This software is highly customizable and allows for reporting on a complex and growing business.

Cons

It is a little more complicated to install because it has so much flexibility. It takes a lot of foresight to insure the coding structure is set up correctly.

Advice to Others

This software, once installed is very user friendly and gives you so much insight into your business.
I installed this software when I was Controller of a privately held company.
