SAP Business One

Run Simple,Run Better

The SAP Business One application offers a single, affordable way to manage your entire business from sales and customer relationships to financials and operations. Designed specifically for small businesses, it helps you streamline processes, act on timely information, and accelerate profitable growth.

SAP Business One is an affordable, award-winning product built exclusively for small businesses. As a complete, integrated software application, SAP Business One eliminates the cost and hassle of integrating multiple standalone applications. Its intuitive interface and vast configurability minimizes IT complexities for implementation and ongoing maintenance.

To maintain an edge, you need to streamline processes and find better ways to access the right information to make the best business decisions. If you can effectively track and then access all customer related information, for example, you can service your customers more personally and more intelligently at every point of contact – locking in their loyalty (and repeat business).

By seamlessly integrating sales, customers, financials, and operations, SAP solutions give you the cross company visibility you need to make decisions based on real-time information. Armed with insight into every aspect of your business, you can easily monitor performance, eliminate inefficiencies, and, most important, identify profitable opportunities.

Our Consultants work closely with you to understand your business functions, processes and procedures, including your business requirements and needs before implementing any solution. When implementing a new system, selecting the right software is only the beginning. The true work begins when the actual implementation starts. By applying our exceptional methods to work, our implementation services capitalize on an “out of the box” product functionality to get customers up and running quickly, efficiently and with minimal financial investment.

MINDQUAD delivers its project by using The SAP ASAP Focus methodology. This proven and tested methodology over decades aims at quick implementation of SAP Business One within decided budgets and time frame.

Under this approach MINDQUAD team works with the business and IT team of the organization to help improve their business processes, identify to-be processes and map their business requirements to the functionality available in the SAP application through configuration and customization. Extensive testing and effective change management are key elements of this project. The key phases and activities are defined by SAP’s ASAP methodology as highlighted below.

 

 

Phase 1 – Project Preparation

The purpose of this phase is to provide initial planning and preparation for the project. Every project has its own unique objectives, scope, and priorities. The steps in Phase 1 identify and plan the primary focus areas to be considered.

During this phase, we will undertake the following activities:

  • Definition of project goals and objectives
  • Clarification of implementation scope
  • Definition of implementation strategy
  • Definition of overall project schedule and implementation sequence
  • Establishment of the project organization and committees
  • Assignment of resources
  • Addressing these issues early in the implementation provides a solid foundation for the project and helps ensure that the project proceeds efficiently.

Phase 2 – Business Blueprint

The purpose of this phase is to create the business blueprint, which is detailed documentation of the results gathered during requirements workshops. The business blueprint documents the business process requirements of the company and helps to illustrate how the company intends to run its business within the SAP Business One.

Other activities in this phase include:

  • Refinement of the original project goals and objectives
  • Definition of the baseline scope
  • Refinement of the overall project schedule and implementation sequence

Phase 3 – Realization

The purpose of this phase is to implement business and process requirements based on the business blueprint. The objectives are as follows:

  • Final implementation in the system
  • Overall test
  • Release of the system for production (live) operation

Phase 4 – Final Preparation

The final preparation includes testing, end-user training, system management, and cutover activities. The final preparation phase also serves to resolve all crucial open issues. On successful completion of this phase, the customer’s business will be ready to run with the new live SAP Business One.

Phase 5 – Go-Live and Support

The purpose of this phase is to cut over to live productive operation and to continuously support and improve live operations. This phase encompasses two distinct periods, as follows:

Project End

When the system first goes live, all issues and problems will have been resolved, transition to the production support team will have been finalized, knowledge transfer will have been completed, and the project will have been signed off.

Continuous Improvement

Once the project is complete, the production support team will monitor the system and resolve live business process issues. Proper change management procedures will be established, and ongoing end-user training will be conducted. Plans will be made to continuously review and improve business processes.

A number of our more general use add-ons are detailed here, however a great deal more add-ons are company-specific.

All software projects are thoroughly analyzed and documented prior to commencement, with both our clients and MINDQUAD, required to sign off on a written specification which ensures that all parties know what functionality is deliverable, the estimated timescale for completion and normally the price, as most of the projects are undertaken on a fixed price basis.

Projects are managed throughout their life cycles, and MINDQUAD utilize elements from 3 design/management methodologies, these being, RAD (Rapid Application Development), JAD (Joint Application Development) and SSADM (Structured Systems and Design Methodology), helping to ensure that our projects come in on time, with the minimum amount of disruption and the maximum return on your investment.
