One of the strong and integrated solutions for ERP is SAP Business One. It is mainly useful for small, medium-sized companies and is the best solution for handling the various aspects of the enterprises. By combining the main functions for a streamlined operation, the program provides a versatile way to handle the entire business. This brings together core functions such as inventory, distribution, accounting, finance and project management allowing better business choices.

This platform is popular among companies as it is cost-effective, comprehensive, modular, scalable and personalized as per its requirements. It serves many sectors such as the food and beverage industry, the automotive industry, the electronics industry, the retail market, wholesale distribution and many more.

In the cloud or on the premises, it is available. There are advantages to the cloud option such as predictable costs, less deployment time, flexibility to introduce the latest technology and reliability, even if a new upgrade is available. The premise choice provides advantages such as compliance with data, customization and integration, enhanced implementation process control etc.

SAP Business One is believed to appeal small and medium-sized businesses as it is sufficiently inexpensive and can be purchased as per month or annual subscription mode at the user’s convenience. It was founded in Germany in 1972, related to its roots.
