Business One 8.82 Focuses on Business Improvements

SAP’s Business One is well-known in the small business world as a reliable and affordable performance driven business application. Staying true to their stellar reputation, SAP released version 8.82 addressing specific product needs for small businesses.

What is Business One?

Business One is an application that integrates all core business functions, eliminating the need for multiple modules. Indeed, Business One assists with managing multiple departments, such as: accounting and financials, sales and customers, purchasing and operations, inventory and distributions, and administration. Integrating your entire business cuts inefficient energy and time, because multiple systems means additional work and duplicate entries. Information is streamlined and profitable growth is accelerated.

Business One’s software application creates quotes, enters orders, tracks sales opportunities, initiates marketing campaigns (by using templates for mass emails) and provides support for customer service contracts and warranties.

Business One 8.82 keeps small and mid-sized businesses in mind

Business One 8.82 captures a range of improvements specifically answering small business needs. For example, their customer service management (CRM) application allows companies to develop and manage multichannel marketing programs. Or, the configuration wizard guides users through essential settings with an assortment of application areas.

Other great feature includes the “pick and pack process,” which allows better management and support for back-order functionality. Also, this allows greater flexible material requirements planning (MRP) and achieves effective long-term business planning.

Keeping in line with MRP, the process has also improved. Small businesses have greater control and flexibility over MRP parameters, which allows better inventory levels. In addition, improved weekly display options allow for better forecasting capabilities.

Businesses can record blanket agreements to reflect long-term sales or purchasing agreements that have been negotiated with business partners. Sales or purchasing documents can then be linked to blanket agreements and used for quantity reservation, revenue forecasts and capacity planning. Blanket agreements are involved in cash-flow calculations, MRP runs and the procurement process.

According to SAP CEO, Business One 8.82 has reached an improved and different maturity level, he said. “It has now unfolded its full potential, embracing innovations like mobility, to become the de facto standard for the needs of small and midsized companies.”

SAP Business One 8.82 is available through starter packages and subscription-based hosting options.
