SAP Business One Overview For The CEO
Artificial intelligence, the internet of things, smart devices…new technologies are being developed each day. In a world where advancements happen so quickly, businesses who are taking advantage of cutting-edge automation are skyrocketing above the competition. Are you keeping up?
Modern day CEOs need to be proactive rather than responsive. To run a successful business and stay ahead of the curve, you need to make effective decisions based on accurate information and forecasting, rather than responding to problems as they come up.
With constantly increasing expectations from consumers and a digital marketplace expanding the competition, CEOs of small and midsize business are turning to Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to help them make better management decisions. A robust ERP system integrates every aspect of the business under one umbrella, so you have a complete picture of business operations at any given point in time.
SAP Business One is a single, integrated solution designed to grow with your business. It provides clear visibility and control across all your company operations, capturing all critical business information for immediate access and use company-wide.
MAKE RAPID, DATA-DRIVEN DECISIONS
SAP Business One empowers your employees to make confident decisions faster by capturing all critical information across sales, customers, operations, and finance – making it instantly available company-wide. Real-time updates across all lines of business and customizable reporting allows you to make smart business decisions fast. You can even use your mobile device for instant approvals, updates and alerts.

BOOST SALES & IMPROVE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
In today’s digital age, consumers have more choices than ever, and they expect a seamless customer-experience. On-time delivery, the right level of inventory to meet demand, and consistent quality are all essential to keep customers happy and boost sales. This requires full visibility into the production and sales process, from the time an order and raw materials come in to the time a product is delivered and signed for. SAP Business One allows you to view all this information and more from your handheld device, so your team can make sure they are meeting customer needs. Furthermore, the Customer Portal makes it quick and easy for your customers to place their orders.

SOFTENGINE SATISFIED CLIENTS
The good news is that SAP Business One's Sales Analysis capabilities enabled us to evaluate the results of that campaign and then make adjustments for future promotions. Specifically, we can check the number of transactions, discount levels and net gain or loss per promotion and per location. We have to be very careful with how we spend our precious marketing dollars and the new system gives us the tools to optimize our investment in that area.
Denise Ost, Chief Operating Officer, Goodwill Industries, San Joaquin Valley,
“Anyone you tell that you’re going to a new ERP system, they all give you that ‘pained look.’ To think that we’re on a year from when we did discovery to now three months into our live implementation, and all we’re working on is some fine-tuning. Some of these fine-tuning tasks are those little things that make our life so much easier, but this wasn’t what I expected when we went live because people told me so many horror stories. I was thankful for the effort on both Softengine and Baronet teams.”
Bruce Goldsmith, Family Owner, Baronet Coffee,0
Our experience with Softengine has been extremely positive. Any time we call for assistance, they always assign someone who’s highly professional and gets the job done quickly. Interestingly enough, I’ve become so much more educated about IT-related matters since working with the Softengine team on this project. Every time we need to upgrade the system, they walk me though all the steps to make sure that I completely understand what’s happening, which contributes to the overall success of the upgrade. It’s been a pleasure to work with them.
Virginia J. Gregorian, COO, Turbo Wholesale Tires,
The Softengine team was able to tailor SAP Business One to deliver all the traceability Swabplus needed, including all the applicable reports. Softengine enhanced the core system to enable creation of new batch numbers if components don’t already have them and the option of batch-costing. They also added fields for escalation dates, expiration dates and additional inspection data (e.g., who inspected and when), which could be incorporated into each Certificate of Analysis.
Justin Ku, Administration & Operations Coordinator, Swabplus,
We feel like we are in great hands with Softengine and the SAP Business One system they installed. It’s nice to finally put all those unreliable ERP systems and redundant procedures in the rear-view mirror.
Ray Lacorte, VP of Operations, Choice Organic Teas,
We decided to find a partner we could put our trust in. Softengine is very experienced and systemized in its approach. We were very confident we’d made the right choice. Small businesses might be intimidated by SAP software. What they don’t realize is that SAP offers solutions designed specifically for small to midsize companies like ours.
Leonard Kang, Operations Manager, Christopher Lena,
Softengine has been a key contributor to our rollout of SAP Business One. The company's consultants were excellent and helped ensure that we had a successful implementation.
