SAP Business ByDesign is an affordable, easy-to-use enterprise resource planning system (ERP) specifically designed for fast-growing small to mid-market businesses and subsidiaries of larger companies.
From financials and inventory to customer relationship management and human resources, SAP Business ByDesign integrates all major aspects of your business for end-to-end visibility, added efficiency and improved operational control. By serving as the nerve-center for your business, with all data flowing into a single, centralized system, SAP Business ByDesign enables real-time data access for faster, complete, more nimble decision-making.
SAP Business ByDesign comes with workflows and best practices that help your business run operations more efficiently from Day 1. It also scales with your business, so you don’t have to change systems as you grow.
Suite in a Box
SAP Business ByDesign serves as an integrated solution that comes with all you need to run your business out of the box. It brings complete visibility and control over every aspect of your organization, and it captures critical business information for immediate, real-time access company-wide.
Unlike spreadsheets or standalone business software, SAP Business ByDesign brings together all areas of your business for faster, more complete data access and control.
Turnkey with Best Practices Built-In
Standard processes and industry best practices are built into the system by default, so companies can grow faster and focus on their core strengths instead of reinventing common processes. Prepackaged industry solutions and standard implementations also can cut ERP cost and setup time by more than half, enabling businesses to roll out the solution in weeks instead of months or years.
At the same time, SAP Business ByDesign is highly customizable and comes with a software development kit (SDK) for deep customization if required. You get the exact functionality and processes you need for your business without compromises.
Built for Growth
Use the same software solution for running your business whether you have 20 employees and one location or 10,000 employees and operations that span the globe. SAP Business ByDesign supports rapid growth by scaling with a business, and firms can adopt the suite for one part of a business and add functionality later as they expand.
Because SAP Business ByDesign is hosted in the cloud, firms pay for only for what they need today, with the option to add additional capacity seamlessly later on.
Businesses also can easily move from Business ByDesign to SAP’s industry-leading enterprise ERP solutions when the time comes, ensuring process continuity and uninterrupted growth at any scale.
Total Financial Control
With a complete set of tools for managing and streamlining your financial operations, including analytics, SAP Business ByDesign gives you total visibility and control over your company’s financial picture.
Automation also improves accounting tasks such as tax calculations, maintenance of ledger and journal entries, and multi-currency transactions.
Purchasing Optimization for Better Margins
A systematic approach for procurement helps drive profitability and avoid supply chain disruption. SAP Business ByDesign supports the complete order-to-pay cycle from requesting vendor quotes and creating purchase requests to handling receipts, invoices, returns and supplier payments.
Reporting tools built into the system help your business easily compare suppliers based on price, quality and other factors such as shipping times, which helps with spotting cost savings and strengthening your supply chain.
Transparent Inventory and Distribution
Track and manage both inventory and distribution with complete visibility.
SAP Business ByDesign provides real-time access to stock levels, inventory updates and availability checks. Inventory can be valued using costing, moving average, FIFO or other methods.
Inbound and outbound shipments, including transfers and item location, can be monitored in real-time. Standard and special pricing can be managed and applied by volume, cash or customer discounts, and automated reports can show their impact.
Powerful Business Intelligence, Analytics and Reporting
Make better business decisions with analytics and reporting tools that aggregate your operational data and highlight opportunities for additional growth.
Automated report generation, more than 500 standard reports, and real-time analytics help you understand your data. Role-based dashboards and Microsoft Excel integration also make it accessible.
SAP Business ByDesign uses an in-memory analytics platform for faster analysis. It also integrates with SAP Crystal Reports, one of the most powerful and complete analytics tools for generating ad hoc indicators and reports.
Empower employees to make faster, more informed decisions by capturing data company-wide and making it available in real-time. With SAP Business ByDesign, you can capture all sales, customer, operations and financial information and make it accessible to employees on an as-needed basis.
By having all your business data in a centralized system instead of disconnected spreadsheets, you also can cut down on data entry and unnecessary employee costs.
Customize your ERP system for your particular business and industry needs. SAP Business ByDesign comes with all you need out of the box, but it also was designed for easy integration with best-of-breed and industry-specific solutions from other software providers.
With more than 255 integration points and a robust software development kit for customized code, SAP Business ByDesign both works as a turnkey solution and in conjunction with other systems.
Built on the SAP Cloud and run on industry-leading cloud provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS), SAP Business ByDesign features wide connectivity with other online software platforms, a robust API, and support for all major browsers and mobile devices.
By moving processes to SAP Business ByDesign, companies can quickly and easily achieve digital transformation and end-to-end cloud-based operations.
