SAP is usually viewed as too complex and too expensive for the small and mid-market. Often overlooked is the fact that SAP has more than one product and SAP Business One is their answer for the mid-market.
SAP Business One is a role-based solution running on two database platforms, MS SQL and SAP HANA, SAP’s in-memory computing platform. It offers functions covering financials, sales, customers, vendors, e-commerce, inventory, and operations. Its UI allows for easy navigation and the ability to easily add user defined fields and tables with the ability to query any field or table and run reports. For example, it is quite easy to take your reports and turn them into a graphic representation, then add them to your dashboard. A unique drill down feature reveals a graphic relationship map making navigation intuitive and easy. There is also an interactive analysis tool that allows users to analyze data and create pivot tables without ever leaving the system or exporting your data elsewhere.

AchieveIT’s Resolv to Power Distribution Networks on SAP Business One
Achieve IT Solutions focuses on small, mid-market companies, and subsidiaries of large organizations with wholesale and distribution, as well as light manufacturing operations. To further support wholesale and distribution operations, they have developed enhancements and add-ins called Resolv. These add-ins include functions such as UPS and FedEx integration, container management, EDI, quality control features, and a warehouse management system capable of being run on mobile iOS, Android, or Windows tablets and smart phones.
AchieveIt offers Business One as an on premise or SaaS model hosted on Amazon’s Web Services (AWS), among other hosting services, and includes a managed services option. This offering makes AchieveIt attractive to the small and midmarket companies, which often have limited IT resources. In addition, SAP’s partnership with AWS means there is a team of people managing your infrastructure, with all support issues handled through AchieveIt.
With enhancements for distributors, a managed services offering, a partnership with Amazon Web Services, and an affordable price tag, small and mid-sized companies can consider AchieveIt and SAP Business One a viable option when evaluating new ERP systems.
