SAP Business one offers an affordable way to manage your entire business – from sales and customer relationships to financials and operations. Designed specifically for smaller businesses and sold through the largest and most successful SAP Business One partner in Africa, Bluekey, it helps you streamline processes, act on timely information, and drive profitable growth.
Businesses like yours have big goals. But it’s easy to lose focus when a flood of day-to-day operational details, ad hoc requests for information, and nonstop competitive moves demand your full attention. It’s also easy to lose the “big picture” when key pieces of information reside in different systems, applications, or physical locations – impeding response times while creating customer dissatisfaction. Meanwhile, disjointed sales, accounting, and operational processes can result in bottlenecks and reduce productivity.
Whether you’re an independent small business or a subsidiary of a larger company, you need a clear view of all aspects of your business to stay competitive. You must streamline processes and find better ways to access the information that will result in the best business decisions. SAP Business One can help your organization see clearly, think clearly, and act clearly so that you can close the gap between strategy and execution and become a best-run business.
SAP Business One: A complete and customizable solution
SAP Business One is a single, integrated solution that provides clear visibility into your entire business and complete control over every aspect of your operations. It captures all critical business information for immediate access and use company-wide. Unlike accounting packages and spreadsheets, it delivers what you need to manage your key business areas, including:
- Accounting and finance
- Sales and customer management
- Purchasing and operations
- Inventory and distribution
- Reporting and administration
Because every business is different, SAP Business One is designed with flexibility in mind. Whether it’s deployed in your office or in the cloud, you can access it from the road using our SAP Business One mobile app. And because SAP Business One runs on both the SAP HANA and Microsoft SQL Server platforms, you can choose the one that’s best for your business.
What’s more, your employees can start using it from day one. Then, as your business grows, you can customize and extend SAP Business One to meet your evolving needs.
Make smart decisions faster with complete information access
SAP Business One enables sound decisions by capturing all critical information across sales, customers, operations, and finance – making it instantly available company-wide. By integrating this data in one system instead of multiple disconnected spreadsheets, it eliminates duplicate data entry, costs, and related errors. Workflow-based alerts trigger automatic responses when important business events occur, allowing you to focus on the most critical events. You have clear visibility into how your business is performing and greater confidence in the information used to make decisions.
Together with the fully integrated SAP Crystal Reports software, SAP Business One delivers dashboards and reports that provide insight into all business areas. Intuitive, interactive drill-down functionality helps you get answers to your most pressing questions. Employees can address customer needs faster, and managers can accurately track revenues, costs, and cash flow to assess performance and take quick corrective action.
For even faster information access, optional analytics powered by SAP HANA are available for SAP Business One. This solution takes real-time reporting and data analysis to the next level, making it easier for users to search SAP Business One for the information they need and create standard or ad hoc reports in real time.
