We also provide worldwide coverage, with 41 local country versions in 27 languages, so you won’t outgrow your software solution as you expand your operations.

Stay current and agile

Worldwide, a wide range of trusted SAP partners offer SAP Business One Cloud as a managed solution. This means that they host and manage the software, and they keep it updated so that you always have access to the very latest functionality. Because the software is delivered as a service, there’s no lengthy rollout, no requirement for time-consuming IT training, and no need for ongoing maintenance. You can get up and running quickly and with minimal disruption to your day-to-day operations. Also, your IT staff is freed up to focus on other tasks. With help from Blue Ocean, you can also “switch on” new functionality and solution extensions as you need them, quickly and easily. This helps you react in an agile way to take advantage of new market opportunities and overcome challenges, achieving a competitive edge.

Keep costs down and see value early on

By accessing SAP Business One Cloud using a software-as-a-service model, you can focus on your business, not your technology. Because you don’t need to invest in hardware infrastructure or experienced IT experts to manage and support the solution, the total cost of ownership is kept to a minimum. Costs are affordable, easy to understand, transparent, and predictable. Payment terms are based on the number of users and the length of your contract, starting at 12 months. So you can tailor the terms to fit the precise needs of your business. In addition, by accessing the solution from the cloud, you can deploy the software quickly across your entire organization. This means you accelerate time to value and quickly start to see a return on your investment by leveraging the benefits of an integrated approach to business management.
