SAP Business One: Purchasing and Operations

Every small business needs a systematic approach to managing the procurement process, from requesting vendor quotes to creating purchase requests to paying vendors. SAP Business One helps manage the complete order-to-pay cycle, including receipts, invoices, returns, and payments. Integrated reporting tools let you easily compare suppliers and prices to negotiate more beneficial deals and identify opportunities for cost savings.

SAP Business One includes functionality for managing purchasing and operations, including:

  • Procurement: Generate purchase requests, POs, and goods receipts; link purchasing documents and view document trails for audit purposes; and manage returns, additional expenses, and multiple currencies
  • Master Data Management: Manage detailed data in a user-friendly interface, view account balance and purchase analyses, and maintain detailed item purchasing information with price lists and tax information
  • Warehouse and Accounting Integration: Achieve real-time synchronization of goods receipts and inventory warehouse levels; process accounts payable invoices, cancellations, and credit memos with a PO reference; plan your material needs; and schedule your purchases accordingly
  • Easier, Up-to-Date Reporting: Create reports with real-time data and display them in various report formats or dashboards
