When you run a small or medium sized business, business is personal. You have to carefully think through the implications of every decision – and also know when to just go with your gut. Either way, your business software has to provide you with information you can trust and help you execute on those decisions quickly and cost-effectively.
That’s why customers around the world trust the SAP® Business One application to run their small businesses. And today that choice is even better with the SAP HANA platform. With this version, the application and all of your data are powered by SAP HANA. Along with helping to speed your processing times, this enables you to maintain a streamlined IT landscape.
It also means that you can take advantage of real-time analysis as well as extremely fast application performance. You can speed planning cycles, sales and production processes and financial transactions while taking advantage of innovative business functionality to enhance the agility and effectiveness of your small business. And by simplifying your reporting landscape, you can reduce your technology ownership costs.
SAP HANA, revolutionises all of your critical business reporting. It quickly searches through your SAP Business One data to give you the answers you need right now. Reports that used to take days or hours to run and compile now take only minutes, if not seconds. And even if your small business accumulates huge amounts of data, you can still run highly complex and data-intensive analyses in real time.
The application also includes new embedded analytics functionality that delivers critical and timely information to all those who need it, when and where they need it. You’ll benefit from highly visual and contextual dashboards that are embedded in the familiar SAP Business One screens. For example, when a customer’s name is entered into a sales order screen, a side panel on the screen opens showing the products most often purchased by that customer. This enables your reps to make informed recommendations at the point of sale. Your business transactions can be completed faster than ever before while giving your customers the personal service they deserve.
