SAP Business ByDesign Pricing

Explore the different aspects of ERP solution pricing

Why SAP Business ByDesign?

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.

What's the Difference Between Cheap and Good ERP Systems  

The cheapest ERP system might require middleware or custom coding to make it perform like your company needs, and quickly the cost of developing and maintaining these custom solutions far exceeds the savings of the “cheaper” option. The more expensive ERP solution that connects with everything out-of-the-box actually costs less.

A good ERP system enables widespread process automation and both the collection of all company data and analytics that help businesses act on that data. Read the success stories of businesses that have adopted the most popular ERP solutions, and you invariably read about new revenue streams, 20 percent jumps in revenue, and other tales of massive financial upside.

Now onto pricing. . . and why it's tricky to set a one price fits all with ERP. 

As you've probably heard, many ERP deployments fail. However, most of these failures come from poor planning, limited consultation and buy-in from key stakeholders, and inadequate needs assessment. These problems usually start during the ERP evaluation process.

Before you can accurately evaluate and put a price on an ERP solution and implementation, you must define key aspects of your organization and its needs.

Your selection team needs to assess all lines of business, key stakeholders, headcounts, and other specifics such as the software currently in use within the business (both software officially
used within your organization and the shadow IT adopted by employees when official solutions prove inadequate). In addition, you should define your organization’s goals for the new system, how you will measure project success, and the timeframe needed for completion of the ERP deployment.

We've created this ERP Evaluation guide to help you define key aspects of your organization and its needs.
