Helping organisations across the world to better manage their entire business, SAP Business One integrates, synchronises and monitors all business processes. It optimises efficiencies across the board and provides end-to-end business visibility and control. All for that all-important competitive advantage. So, what exactly is SAP Business One and how is it benefiting so many businesses across so many different industries?
Designed specifically for SMEs and subsidiaries of larger companies, SAP Business One brings together all vital business functions within a single, centralised solution. Replacing multiple legacy systems and manual processes, it amalgamates such diverse business functions as sales, CRM, HR, finance, inventory, supply chain, purchasing and project management, to name but a few. It streamlines processes and provides comprehensive, real-time business-wide data to the right people, at the right time, in the right context. What’s more, the addition of advanced analytics turns this data into real business insight, driving rapid, robust decision-making to improve business agility.
While once ERP was the sole preserve of larger organisations, SAP Business One is now designed to meet the specific needs and budgets of SMEs. With the added benefit of being both flexible and scalable, it will be able to grow alongside your business. SAP Business One can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. Its open architecture and ability to easily integrate with other solutions means that it won’t hold your business back, giving you the ways and means to exploit any new growth opportunities that arise.
