Plus consider modern interface with intuitive export to Excel, drag-and-relate, users self study and self discovery possibilities. In this small publication we would like to give you SB1 case studies and typical implementation scenarios paragraphs:
1. Discrete manufacturing or light assembly. If your company is small and doesn’t need full-scale production software, typically expensive in both software licensing and implementation services, SBO is excellent candidate to consider. If you are making to order, then SB1 has disassembly Production Order, where you can disassemble cancelled order and place all the parts back on the shelves or their bins
2. Service Warranty Contracts. Warranties are typical business scenario for small manufacturing, dealership and distribution companies and it is probably true statement, that this reasonable market niche is underserved. In SAP Business One you can associate serialized item (with serial number) with Service Contract, and then you can repair the item on as needed base under warranty with free technician support, spare parts, or decide to bill for portion of warranty services. You can also associate technical support knowledge base with your items and contracts
3. Warehouse Management. Picking and Packing functionality allows you to automate paperwork associated with assembly, finished goods and parts storage and release to be shipped to your customers or returned back to your suppliers. There are also barcode add-ons to automate barcoding scanners in real time or batch mode with barcode servers
4. SAP Business One Reporting. Please, consider such industry standard reports design tool as Crystal Reports to be deployed.
