Why you DON’T have to be BIG to run SAP
Do you think your business is too small to run SAP? Think again, think SAP Business One
Myths and misnomers litter the business world. All small businesses are agile, all enterprises are big corporate entities, sales figures are the most important, customers will always buy the best product. As we all know, these don’t stand up to scrutiny. Some large businesses are agile, some small businesses aren’t, cash flow is more important than sales and the best product isn’t always the most popular – just ask fans of Betamax. Business people can’t afford to make assumptions. That’s why we do our research and base decisions on facts.
The majority of businesses we work with are small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). We help them automate processes and gain valuable insight into their businesses with SAP software. By doing this, these businesses take assumptions out of the equation – it means that instead of relying on anecdotal evidence, they work with the facts. The result is they find it easier to spot opportunities and identify areas to improve.
“With numerous programmes and projects running, some spanning years, we needed a versatile and robust business management system that could essentially bring everything together and provide a central, enterprise-wide platform for managing finances, monitoring the progress of projects, reporting and delivering access to information.” Jill Thorne, General Manager, Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation.
However, before these businesses start dealing with the facts, they often need to challenge another set of preconceptions. One we come across frequently is that SAP only works with enterprise organizations. But this isn’t the case. More than 77% of SAP’s customers are SMEs. That’s about 88,000 businesses. What’s more, SAP has been working with SMEs for nearly 40 years. As a result, the company understands the unique challenges they face and the tools they need to grow.
Rather than adopt a small business accounting package and, with increasing functional requirements, then go through the disruption of switching software later, choose the SAP Business One Starter Package. You will gain instant visibility and control while building a stable software foundation to support your evolving and growing business needs. With 1-5 users, the SAP Business One Starter Package caters for the smallest of companies and provides them with the opportunity to become a best-run business.
