One of the things that I really love about working with SAP Business One is the solution’s flexibility. Not only is the application ideal for any type of SME looking to streamline key processes, but it’s also a really attractive option for larger organisations looking to create a two-tier ERP solution as part of their IT strategy. Let me explain…
Business management solutions are traditionally classified by tiers. These help clients to quickly identify what solution is right for their business. Tier 1 solutions are aimed at large organisations who may work across different countries. It’s what people usually class as ‘Big SAP’. These solutions can have anywhere from 200 users submitting vast amounts of data.
Alternatively, SAP Business One is a market-leading ERP solution which falls into the Tier 2 category. This is a complete, end-to-end business management system for anywhere between five and 200 users. Not only is this an ideal tool for SMEs looking to manage critical business functions in one solution, but it can also be a key component for global organisations wanting to control local subsidiaries.
Subsidiary Management in SAP Business One
There are already thousands of multi-national companies who use this Tier 1/Tier 2 approach successfully. Because SAP is a vendor of both Tier 1 and Tier 2 solutions, Business One can seamlessly integrate into larger applications. It’s the perfect component for any organisation searching for a two-tier ERP solution. This means organisations can enjoy increased data visibility and accuracy, alongside a host of other benefits. Organisations who link SAP Business One back to their HQ or ‘main’ system can quickly uniform and streamline common activities.
Organisations can also view activities without requiring manual reconciliation or data duplication in real-time. And because data is stored and accessed effectively in one database, reporting is so much easier and faster.
Another reason why SAP Business One is so popular in this model is the way it has been designed. Because it is an out-of-the-box solution used globally, it’s an attractive option for those looking to create a multi-tier solution without paying for huge amounts of customisation. SAP Business One already has more than 40 country-specific localisations, is available in 28 languages and is used in more than 170 countries – and it’s always in development to add new features.
