Last May SAP reached yet another milestone; their integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for small to midsized enterprises surpassed its 60,000th customer. Let’s look at a few of the reasons underlying the success of the leading ERP solution for the midmarket enterprises and large enterprise subsidiaries.
Flexibility to Meet the Needs of Businesses
No two businesses are exactly alike, and neither are the systems needed to run their business. That’s why SAP Business One is designed with flexibility in mind. With its flexible architecture, it can be customise and extended to meet unique and changing needs of the user. Out of the box, SAP Business One offers and affordable way to manage your entire business from accounting and financials, purchasing, inventory, sales and customer relationships, and project management, to operations and human resources. You can start small and add industry-specific functionality using the software development kit or choose from more than 500 certified add-on solutions as your business grows or new challenges arise.
Two-Tier Software Strategy for Your Subsidiaries
SAP Business One is a scalable ERP solution that grows with your business making it the right choice for small to midsized enterprises. Equally, it's the right solution for large enterprises that want to manage subsidiary operations. SAP Business One enables subsidiaries to be nimble, to fulfill their strategic objective whether it’s to grow the organisation, penetrate a market, reduce costs through global sourcing or manufacturing. That's because SAP Business One works in tandem with other SAP enterprise solutions as part of a two-tier software strategy for large enterprises.
Tier-one software like the SAP ERP application runs at your larger operations, while tier-two software such as the SAP Business One application runs at a subsidiary. The two software solutions are then integrated into one coordinated operation, bringing together your processes, applications, and data.
