SAP’s sophisticated Business One suite is now available from £26 a month through a hosting arrangement with Online 50.

Best known for hosting Sage 50 Accounts and other productivity and accounting tools, Online 50 has long been aware of the need to cater for fast growing companies whose requirements go beyond Sage’s capabilities, managing director Rob Lambden told AccountingWEB.

A meeting with SAP executives at last year’s Practice Excellence Awards ceremony opened the door to collaboration with SAP.

The result is a hosted version of Business One accompanied by Online 50’s own “Ambition” package of data routing forms that make it possible to collect data outside of the core application, but then feed it back in.

Although Lambden doesn’t want to frighten off users with the term “enterprise resource planning”, Business One is a multi-currency, internationally capable ERP suite that includes modules covering:

Financials - including flexible accounting periods, budgeting and  cost accounting

Sales management and order processing with support for campaign tracking, credit control, and period/volume discounts.

 Purchase order processing, incorporating landed costs and Intrastat reporting.

 Stock Control with tracking and warehouse management

Production and manufacturing, including production orders, bill of materials, forecasting and life cycle management

 Service management.

“We’ve seen growing demand from people bumping up against their existing software, and also from accountants who are trying to deliver better analysis to clients, but not hitting it with their existing products,” Lambden said at the recent Accountex event (see video below).

“We’ve got a world leading product and partner. It’s an opportunity for people to get on board with best of breed products at a price that compares very favourably with other products in the market.”
