When you run a small business, business is personal. You have to carefully think through the implications of every decision – and also know when to just go with your gut.

That’s because the SAP HANA platform is designed for scalability, easily handling more data and delivering even better performance as more users access the software at the same time. So as you expand your workforce and have more users accessing the application, you won’t have to worry about outgrowing SAP Business One.
SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, delivers real-time simulation and planning functionality to help you tackle previously unsolvable problems.
Embedded analytics support users every step of the way
SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, revolutionises all of your critical business reporting. It quickly searches through your SAP Business One application data to give you the answers you need right now. Reports that used to take days or hours to run and compile now take only minutes, if not seconds. And even if your small business accumulates huge amounts of data, you can still run highly complex and data-intensive analyses in real time.
The application also includes new embedded analytics functionality that delivers critical and timely information to all those who need it, when and where they need it. You’ll benefit from highly visual and contextual dashboards that are embedded in the familiar SAP Business One screens. For example, when a customer’s name is entered into a sales order screen, a side panel on the screen opens showing the products most often purchased by that customer. This enables your reps to make informed recommendations at the point of sale. Your business transactions can be completed faster than ever before while giving your customers the personal service they deserve.
Smarter business processes for greater business agility
SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, includes new and powerful functionality that can accelerate business processes and improve your bottom line. It offers an advanced available-to-promise (ATP) app that provides real-time visibility into current inventory, ordered stock, replenished stock, and stock being delivered. You can immediately reserve current stock for future delivery dates and reschedule existing orders to ensure on-time fulfillment of your best customers’ orders and to optimise product movement.
SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA, also delivers an improved cash-flow forecasting app that dramatically improves your cash balance visibility. This is a critical need for small businesses where the quality of cash-flow forecasting can mean the difference between staying in business and closing for good. The advanced app takes cash-flow forecasting to the next level of performance by tracking sales orders, POs, down payments, recurrent postings, and other critical cash-related transactions in its calculations.
