SAP offers Business One, which is business management software that is designed for small and medium sized businesses. It aims to automate key business functions in operations, financials, and human resources.
Business One currently offers 14 functional models that cover many of the typical functions in a business, such as administration, and financials.
Other modules include production, where bill of materials master data are maintained and production order are created. Additional modules cover inventory, purchasing, resources, and project management.
Key benefits of a good ERP system include able to have one central database where there is no duplication of data, and a single view of the organisation. Some of the drawbacks are usually seen around the expensive and time consuming nature of buying and implementing a system.
This is typically a problem because of the size and scale of the ERP system.
