Does your business need more than a small business accounting package, yet a fully integrated business management solution seems out of reach? Now SAP has bridged the gap between small business needs and budgetary constraints with the SAP Business One starter package.pdf. The SAP Business One Starter Package offers the SAP Business One solution at a reduced scope, and a reduced price. It is an integrated business management solution for small companies and offers the key functionality, facilitating basic accounting, financials, sales, customer relationship management, purchasing, and inventory processes, of the SAP Business One application, pre-configured for small businesses with up to five software users. The solution can be implemented, and up and running between 3 and 10 days, depending on scope of project, and is scalable as you grow (can be upgraded to the full version of SAP Business One at any time without having to invest in new software)
The solution comprises the following core functions:
The SAP Business One starter package helps you manage your general ledger, journals, and accounts payable and receivable. You can conduct all your banking activities – including processing payments by cheque, cash, credit card, bank transfer, and bill of exchange – as well as reconcile various accounts and create financial reports for profit and loss, cash flow, balance sheet, and aging. You can also update account postings at the exact time relevant business events occur.
With the starter package you can create quotes, enter orders, and provide better customer service. You can also track sales opportunities and activities from first contact to the close of sale. The software also lets you manage and maintain customer contacts with full Microsoft Outlook synchronisation, which results in increased sales effectiveness and stronger customer relationships.
Every small business needs a systematic approach to managing the procurement process, from creating purchase orders to paying vendors. The starter package helps manage the complete order-to-pay cycle, including receipts, invoices, and returns.
The starter package also lets you readily manage your inventory and operations, including delivery, and billing. You can perform inventory valuation using different methods such as standard costing, moving average, and FIFO. You can monitor stock levels and track transfers in real time and across multiple warehouses. In addition, you can run real-time inventory updates and availability checks and manage pricing and special pricing by automatically applying volume, cash, and account discounts to transactions with vendors and customers.
The starter package provides powerful integrated analytic and reporting tools to help you access the critical business information you need. With fully integrated SAP Crystal Reports software, you can gather data from multiple sources and generate timely and accurate reports based on critical company data across financials, sales, customers, inventory, and operations. The starter package offers additional functionalities such as "drag and relate" and the ability to drill down through multiple levels of relevant data to get complete information instantly.
