SAP Business One

SAP Business One is business management software designed for small and medium-sized enterprises. As an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, it aims to automate key business functions in financials, operations, and human resources. Designed specifically for small businesses, SAP Business One is a single, affordable solution for managing your entire business with greater clarity, including accounting & financials, sales, basic CRM, inventory, production, reporting, purchasing, and operations.


Seamless Purchasing Process

Purchase requisitions can now – for the first time – be fully processed within the system. Where employees previously had to send the Purchasing department an Excel list detailing their purchase orders, they can now do so in the system itself. “Manual requests are no longer necessary.

Optimal Inventory Management

For those who need optimal management of their inventory items, this is also possible with the new “Integrated Fixed Assets.” Country-specific requests, which previously could only be posted via an add-on, are already listed in the tool.

Improved Data Exchange

It is possible to exchange data via EDI or EDIFACT as well as via other interfaces . You can also go for a faster system through SAP HANA in-memory. The SAP HANA in-memory database stores its data in the main system memory, making it up to 300 times faster.


A typical SAP Business One server specification might look something like this:

  • Operating System: Microsoft® Windows Server 2012 64 Bit (x64)
  • Database: Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 64 Bit (x64)Standard, Business Intelligence & Enterprise Edition
  • CPU: 3-20 Users: 1x Intel® Xeon® E321-75 Users: 2x Intel® Xeon® E375+ Users: 4x Intel® Xeon® E3

  • HD Space: MS SQL Server – System partition 100GB/Data partition 100GB
