Whether you are a small business owner, head up a subsidiary or are an IT decision maker, you will be tasked with improving business processes and gaining better business insights to make informed and faster decisions. You may have considered SAP Business One in the past and compared it to the likes of accounting only systems. Designed specifically for small to midsize businesses, SAP Business One is a complete single solution to help you improve cash flow grow revenue, improve customer satisfaction and increase productivity. Here are the 7 biggest myths surrounding it and why it has the best features as standard for your business.

1.       We don’t need business management software

If you are running your business on disparate systems and spreadsheets, your business isn’t connected. Without this you can’t easily share your information or operate as efficiently as you could. You may find that instead of growing your business you are merely running it, devoting the time and resources to it, that you could be using elsewhere. SAP Business One is a scalable and affordable single solution which can help reduce these inefficiencies and drive productivity.

2.       SAP is only for really big companies

SAP Business One is a single ERP Solution that was designed specifically for SMEs, with SMEs making up more than 80% of SAP customers.

3.       It sounds expensive for small companies

SAP Business One is specifically for small and midsize businesses. As a market leading ERP solution, SAP Business One is unbeatable on price and can be implemented very quickly to keep costs to a minimum.  Focus on where you will get the most ROI – SAP Business One will help you achieve strategic alignment, predictable performance and confident decision-making.

4.       It can’t be better for us than accounting only systems.

SAP Business One is developed by SAP from the ground up, with huge reinvestment in the product. It has a published product development roadmap so you can be confident of continued enhancement and support. As it’s designed specifically for SMEs, you will find that the tools you need come as standard in this business management tool.

5.       My current solution is enough for now

Although it may be meeting your needs now, can it support your plans for growth and lay the foundation for your business in 5 years’ time? Does it cover these areas?

  • Banking
  • CRM
  • Sales Opportunities
  • Financial accounting
  • Inventory
  • Production and MRP
  • Purchasing
  • Accounts payable
  • Service management

Can it help you streamline applications, analytics, planning and analysis on a single platform that gives you real-time information and reporting? Can you utilise your existing data to give you the most competitive business, with a complete and up to the minute overview of your business?

6.       I’m sure my existing provider will probably do something similar

  • Require core functionality to run the business straight away

Does your current provider give you all that?

7.       It sounds like a lot of change – we don’t have the time or resources for a big IT project

The availability of it on Cloud means that you don’t need to spend time and money implementing an on-premise solution with multiple software updates etc. You can start off as small as you need, and scale it as your business grows.
