SAP Doesn’t Have to be Expensive

man counting coins

SAP is perhaps a victim of its own success.

One of most common misconceptions is that SAP is too expensive for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). While this is understandable as 85% of Fortune 500 companies run SAP, this notion is so wrong!

Read on to find out more.

1. SAP Business One – ERP for SMEs

SAP has different tiers of products to handle the requirements of businesses. Business One is SAP’s SME solution and is the selected ERP solution by over 70,000 SMEs and multinational subsidiaries. The ERP project costs for SAP Business One are far lower than SAP Enterprise solutions, so are the fees to maintain it.

Although priced for SMEs, it does not mean that Business One is lightweight in terms of functions and capabilities. It has rich functions that are able to support your sales, manufacturing to inventory, accounting and reporting requirements. In addition, it contains all of SAP’s leading technologies like business data visualisation, machine learning and predictive analysis.

2. Get SAP Business One on the cloud at an accessible price

Running SAP Business One has never been simpler!

You pay a monthly-subscription fee and this fee includes the SAP software licenses, software maintenance, application hosting and security protection for your ERP system.  

This SaaS cloud solution minimises your upfront ERP investment and can be scalable to hundreds of users when your company grows.

3. Configuration Tools and Pre-configured Templates

SAP Business One can be implemented rapidly. The configuration tools can be used to tailor the solution to handle your business processes, internal controls as well as change the application logic to suit your unique business practices. As all these changes do not affect the core ERP source code, the costs to maintain and upgrade the solution are kept low.

To add icing to the cake, Inecom delivers preconfigured industry templates so that you do not have to setup or customise your requirements from scratch. These templates include business processes, best practices and business intelligence cubes that will greatly reduce your ERP investment.


SAP Business One is a powerful ERP system available at an accessible price point for SMEs and multinational subsidiaries.
