Efficient business operation, accomplishment of profitable growth
The SAP® Business One application provides a single cost-efficient method for managing the overall business, ranging from sales and customer relations to finances and operation. This solution is especially devised for SMEs to support them in efficiently controlling the process, making decisions based on timely information, and achieving profitable growth.
Use of cost-efficient applications devised for SMEs
Like decision-makers of many other SMEs, you may want to concentrate on the business growth, but in reality find yourself busy processing operation affairs pouring every day, frequent requests for information, and limitless competitive actions. Solving such problems is hard and time-consuming. When important information is dispersed in various systems and locations, the response time is delayed and the customer satisfaction can drop. If sales, accounting, and operation processes are individually managed without association between them, a bottleneck phenomenon will occur at last with lowered productivity. In addition, when you operate several systems, extra work, like copying data items, occurs, so it is more likely to have errors and delays. At the same time, there are more and more competitors and it is becoming harder and harder to discover and maintain customers.
Under such circumstances, in order to occupy a competitive advantage, you need to clearly identify the overall business, efficiently control processes, improve information access methods, and secure capabilities for making the best business decisions. For instance, if you can effectively track and access all customer-related information, you can provide each customer with special services in all aspects to meet their needs, thereby increasing their loyalty and drawing their repeated purchases. In addition, if you want to precisely monitor and control profits and expenses, you can optimize the flow of cash and liquid assets, thereby making your financial structures more robust and possessing flexibility to deal rapidly with business opportunities when they occur. The SAP® Business One application will support your company to clearly see, determine, and act successfully by narrowing the gap between your strategies and practices.
