SAP Business One is an ERP system that can integrate every function of your business into one complete solution. This means all key aspects including finance, sales, purchasing, inventory, production, and HR, can use this single piece of software to gain real-time visibility of information across the organisation.

Integrating all these functions in to one system eliminates multiple points of data entry, saving your business time that is usually wasted from duplications and mistakes.

Here we look at some of the modules and their functionality within SAP Business One that can work for each department.

Finance & Accounting
The finance and accounting module provides visibility of finances across the organisation. Manage general ledgers, journals, budgets, and accounts payables and receivables. Automation is also a key aspect, saving your team time and ensuring deadlines are met.

Reporting becomes so much easier with SAP Business One. Create financial reports such as profit and loss, cash flow, and balance sheets in real-time without having to wait for figures.

Human Resource Management
The Human Resources module is used to store data on all your employees. It allows you to store key personal information such as phone numbers, email addresses, and home addresses. This module also has a feature which can prevent you from creating duplicate entries of the same information.

The module can also automate tasks like applying for leave or vacation providing a smooth experience for all employees whilst saving your HR team time on manual tasks.

Employees can use the time sheets feature of this module to log how long it took them to complete certain tasks, this allows your management team to determine which tasks take longer and whether the workflow can be improved so that those tasks can be done more efficiently.

Customer Relationship Management
SAP Business One's sales and CRM module allows you to manage your entire customer lifecycle from initial contact to post-sale support.

This module stores all your customer information including inquiries, leads, purchase history, and communications. Your sales team can use this to keep track and chase up all opportunities ensuring that none have been wasted.

You can also provide a quick response to any customer service calls and automate sales-related operations such as populating purchase orders and sending email notifications about past or current orders.

Inventory Management
Inventory Management is a module of SAP Business One that helps you manage your product inventory and improve customer satisfaction by ensuring accurate invoicing, order fulfilment and delivery of goods.

The Inventory Management module can be used to:

  • Keep your business running smoothly with invoicing and order management tools.
  • Send out alerts when stock needs to be counted.
  • Keep customers satisfied by making sure they get the products they ordered.

Service Management
SAP Business One Service Management is a module used to help businesses improve customer satisfaction by managing and responding to customer inquiries more efficiently.

The module enables users to track all pending service calls in the queue and monitor various call statuses. It also provides your team with a knowledge base built from existing customer inquiries enabling them to respond quickly when contacted by customers without requiring help from other staff members.

Finally, this module allows users to follow the interaction between a customer and service agent and record the time necessary for responding to each call, allowing your team to see where things can be made more efficient.
