There are plenty of ERP options out there, but which one is right for your needs? Acumatica and SAP Business One are two of the popular options for SMB's. Let's take a look at how they compare.
SAP Business One is designed to help you manage your entire business – from accounting, customer service to sales and inventory. It's a single solution that covers all aspects making it easy for you to keep track of everything going on in your company.
Acumatica takes a different approach by offering separate applications for each area of business management – so if you want something more focused on inventory management or distribution management then you have the option to choose just those modules.
Likewise, SAP Business One can be configured exactly as you need, even if it's just to cover certain areas of your business such as accounting and finance. You can add more modules and functionality as you grow.
Acumatica and SAP Business One both offer a range of integrations.
SAP Business One supports integration with apps like WooCommerce, ZenDesk and Shopify. It can also be integrated with other systems such as SalesForce. Business One also has its own library of add-ons which can help you tailor the solution further.
Acumatica have pre-built applications on their marketplace, which you can buy. Some of these include DocuSign, Paypal and Magento.
Both Acumatica and SAP Business One offer great benefits and it all comes down to choosing the one that best aligns with your goals and objectives.
However, if you're looking for an all-in-one solution to streamline your business, then we recommend SAP Business One as it contains all the necessary modules and has the flexibility needed in a system.
