SAP Business One provides comprehensive tools to help you efficiently manage your enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes. This application automates everyday procedures and accelerates business processes.
Small and medium-sized enterprises benefit from the systematic approach to the handling of procurement processes, warehousing, accounting, sales and customer management.
- Article master data:
Define production articles, purchase articles and non-inventory items such as labor or travel. Maintain standard information such as standard vendor, purchasing and sales unit or an article-specific value-added tax. You can maintain stock items in different warehouses with different associated item costs. SAP Business One supports the inventory valuation methods Standard Cost and Moving Average, and First In - First Out (FIFO) valuation.
Maintain planning data in the master data of an article. You can define the procurement type (production or purchase) here as well as the order periods in which an item is purchased - for example, monthly, weekly or daily. You can also define the lot size to be ordered, the minimum order quantity and the average lead time. You can use this information in conjunction with the material requirements planning function
- Serial numbers:
Manage items by serial numbers.
Assign batches to products and classify them by shelf life or validity period as well as by freely defined characteristics. The batches for these products must be defined in sales orders, delivery notes or stock movements.
- Alternative items:
Create a list of alternative items if the products selected by the customer are not available. The replacement items are ordered according to the similarity of the item, price or quantity.
- Business Partner Catalog Number:
Maintain a cross-reference table that links customer and vendor item numbers with those from inventory. Instead of inventory item numbers, you can use vendor item numbers from purchasing documents.
- Goods receipt and goods issue:
Enter goods receipts and goods issues that do not directly refer to a sales or purchasing document.
- Inventory transfer:
Post inventory from one warehouse to another.
- Inventory Posting:
Enter opening balances for inventory items and update inventory data.
Streamline inventory counts by determining which inventory items to count. The reminders and reports generated by the application ensure that items of varying importance are only counted as often as necessary.
- Price list:
Define a series of price lists and link them to customers or suppliers. Quickly and easily create dynamic links between price lists that are automatically updated when the relevant price list is changed.
- Special prices:
Define special prices for individual customers or suppliers. Determine prices based on the quantity ordered and a validity period for each price setting.
- Pick and Pack:
Manage the pick and pack process in three areas. Incoming orders are displayed in the open area. You can mark the order quantities as fully or partially released for picking. The "released" area shows all purchase orders released for picking; these can be marked as fully or partially picked. In both the open and "released" areas, you can automatically create pick lists for an order or order group. This function offers extensive drill-down options, with which you can view customer and article master data as well as the original documents.
