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.

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:
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:
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:
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:
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.
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.
