The integral business intelligence capabilities of SAP Business One, including SAP Crystal Solutions offers the user choice and flexibility for their Business Intelligence requirements.

“After looking at a number of systems we chose SAP Business One, primarily because we could customise the solution to our needs. This provided us with greater flexibility to manage the varying requirements a business like ours has, and wasn’t something we saw in many other packages.” Nick Carter, Technical Director, Raffenday

SAP Business One provides an array of reports to aid analysis and decision making. These include accounting, enterprise, stock and financial reports as well as interactive dashboards. Users can export any report to Microsoft Excel with a click of the mouse.

Integral Business Intelligence Features

Drag & Relate

SAP Business One is the only solution that uses Drag & Relate to provide users at all levels with end-to-end visibility of complete operations and the ability to instantly understand key relationships and transactions within the business.


Query generator

This tool features point and shoot query generation for creating database queries and defining reports. The data from any field can be used to create a detailed or summary report. Once a query is defined, it can be saved in the query library for future use. The report editor can be used to refine and change existing queries.


Query wizard

This tool is similar to the query generator, but it allows users to generate queries using a wizard to step them through the process. This tool is helpful to users unfamiliar with SQL syntax who want to build queries.


Predefined reports

SAP Business One provides a series of predefined, built-in reports for each functional area of the application. Each report looks at specific areas of the business and users have the ability to customise the output. Once the report is generated users can deliver the report by print or e-mail and export it to a variety of different formats including Microsoft Excel and PDF.
