Sage v SAP Business One

If your company has outgrown it’s current accounting software and you’re looking to upgrade, maybe it’s time to consider a more comprehensive solution.

SAP Business One has been specifically designed and developed to help SME’s. As a result, it allows you to manage all your core processes and streamline your operations. Above all, it will give you a clear view of your entire business.

SAP Business One will:

  • Integrate all the functions of the business on a single system
  • Provide instant access to data, allowing timely and accurate decision making
  • Do away with manual process, duplication and inefficiencies within the business
  • Provide full multi-currency and multi-language support as standard
  • Be configured to meet your companies specific requirements
  • Will fully integrate CRM

Why switch to SAP Business One?

James Mills, Director, Talar Made Ltd

“We considered Sage 200 when we were looking for a new system for our business. However, it just didn’t compare with SAP Business One in terms of it’s ability to integrate all our business functions and the overall cost effectiveness.”

Lynn Jones, Accountant, Codel Ltd

“I’ve never had an audit that has been so efficient. I’ve worked with other systems before but SAP Business One really is a breath of fresh air. The ability to find documents for an audit and the ease in which you can trace which document goes with which order and payment is fantastic. The way the modules are all set up makes navigation really easy. And being an accountant its time saving efficiency adds up for me.”

Steve Graves, Director, Austin Hayes Ltd

“Five years ago, our business decided to upgrade our accounts software and we conducted as an in-depth study into the options available. Our MD at the time was an accountant and knew the difference that the right software would make. Our accountants were recommending that we go down the SAGE route. However, our research led us to SAP, which we felt would better meet our business needs. Both myself and Nick Egleton are from a production background and we could see that there would be a huge business benefit from linking SAP and making it integral to our production process.”

FastClose provides flexible, real-time, multi-dimensional operational reporting. While it also offers the capability to drill down into the detailed transactions within SAP Business One .

It’s an easy-to-use, fast-to-deploy operational reporting and enquiry solution. So, you can quickly build powerful management reports directly straight from your SAP B1 data at a fraction of the cost and complexity of a Business Intelligence system.

Built to work directly with SAP Business One, FastClose uses prebuilt templates that are auto-completed by clicking and pointing to key fields from your B1 system. We call this  “Accounting Intelligence”.

“Ochiba, introduced us to FastClose and we took it on trial to put it through its paces. FastClose was installed easily and it unlocked all the GL data as soon as it started up. There are predefined templates that shortcut the process of report building. We’re getting management reports at a balance level with full drill-down to transactions, very quickly.” Alex Grace, CEO, Bananamoon Clothing Ltd
