SAP Business One costs Maintenance

There are two different ways to run SAP Business One:

  • On Premise (The ERP system is integrated into your IT infrastructure)
    As a complete solution, all functions are seamlessly linked together so no interfaces or additional modules are required. 
    Maintenance and support are charged separately.

  • Cloud (all existing data is hosted on demand)
    Cloud computing in ERP projects is the phrase on everyone's lips and is growing unstoppably. Unlike traditional licensed products (on-premise), on demand or cloud computing is rented and operated in the cloud by the provider.

SAP Business One Kosten

If you have decided to equip your company with an integrated software solution such as SAP Business One, accurate planning provides the best overview of all the resources you need. This way you know in advance what is coming and can better adjust to the effort required.

Pure software costs are one of the factors you will consider when preparing your budget. They usually depend on the number of user licenses you need. Depending on the complexity of your solution, you may also incur costs for transferring your data to the new solution, customizing user interfaces and integrating existing applications into the new system architecture. In many cases, simply exporting your data to SAP Business One will be easy. In more complex applications, we will have to work more extensively with you to transfer your data from existing applications.
