Truly affordable – Available as “on-premise” rapid implementation or as a cloud solution available for a monthly fee.
Unlike most other software applications that focus on a specific area of business, such as accounting or customer relationship management (CRM), SAP Business One is an integrated business management application. It offers a complete set of core functions, including financials, customer management, sales, operations, and logistics, which address the business management needs of your entire company.
SAP Business One is more than the typical financials software that was born out of accounting and bookkeeping, or a standalone customer relationship management solution. It helps businesses like yours manage the entire process of selling and servicing clients.
Now imagine that one application can help all of the people in your organization do their jobs, and that all of them work with the same set of information using the same application that can do the following:
The SAP Business One – Goodwill® Suite application can help you manage both traditional retail and online sales, coordinate loyalty programs, track inventory, monitor customer demand, and view replenishment schedules – all in a single system.
Besides running your core business functions such as sales and financials, SAP Business One – iVend Retail POS can help you:
Getting customers to come to your stores and shop is one thing, ensuring they come back again for repeat business is a very different challenge. Everyone loves gratification and if it is instant, it is that much more appreciated. Customers are spoilt for choice of moving to other retailers, either in store or online and therefore it is becoming more and more important to acknowledge the customer for the business they do with the retailer. Equally important is to monetize the gratitude. Reward them for the business they do.
iVend Loyalty is a points & rewards management application, designed to significantly improve customer retention by bringing them continuously back and improving customer satisfaction levels. iVend Loyalty is seamlessly integrated with iVend Retail and can integrate with SAP Business One ERP system. Flexible Loyalty Plans with multiple redemption features make iVend Loyalty an imperative solution not only for the traditional Retail Industry, but also for non-profit organizations.
iVend Loyalty is configured to operate in a real time mode allowing consolidation of data across stores and the head office in real time. However, when connectivity is not available it processes the transactions locally and then synchronizes with the head office whenever the connectivity is restored.
iVend Passes is a platform for retailers to deploy Digital Passes on Apple Passbook and Android devices. You can engage your customers with a digital Loyalty Card, digital Coupon or digital Gift Cards. iVend Passes remove the technical challenge in doing so allowing you to focus on your consumer engagement. iVend Passes is a cloud platform that enables retailers to use the service seamlessly at their point of sale. Have you seen the ‘Passbook’ icon on your iPhone and wondering what it’s all about? Now you can make digital passes like loyalty cards, gift cards, coupons in iVend Passes and send them to your customers in digital form while saving printing dollars along the way.
Warehouse Management System (Mobile) – WMSm
SAP Business One records goods receipts and goods issues in any warehouse. By integrating individual item prices or price lists, you simultaneously update inventory valuation. SAP Business One transparently integrates inventory and accounting transactions. As a result, stock levels are adjusted, inventory accounts credited or debited, and applicable inventory variances accounted for as soon as a stock movement is posted. Inventory transfer functionality allows you to readily move items from one warehouse to another.
The pick-and-pack manager in SAP Business One lets you easily create pick lists and pull the listed items from the inventory. Consignment and drop-ship orders are smoothly processed by creating dedicated customer warehouses. You can perform cycle counts while orders are received and shipped, so that business activity does not have to be postponed to perform stocktaking. If the cycle count shows a level below the minimum stock point or a stock level discrepancy, the powerful alerts manager feature in SAP Business One notifies your warehouse and purchasing managers.
The comprehensive inventory count functionality of the warehouse management system allows you to record initial quantities, perform inventory tracking, and post stock differences by warehouse, item, item group, vendor, or any custom-defined properties. Stocktaking sheets are generated and printed easily using the print layout designer in SAP Business One. In addition, you can do all this with multiple warehouses.
Accounting and Financials
SAP Business One helps you manage your general ledger, journals, budgets, and accounts payable (AP) and receivable (AR). You can conduct all your banking activities, including processing bank statements and payments by methods such as check, cash, and credit card, as well as internal and external reconciliation of various accounts. You can also create various financial reports including profit and loss, cash flow, balance sheet, aging, and profit center reports.
Purchasing and Operations
Every business needs a systematic approach to managing the procurement process, from creating purchase orders to paying vendors. SAP Business One helps coordinate the complete order-to-pay cycle, including receipts, invoices, and returns. You can also plan material requirements for production, control bills of material, and replenish inventory automatically. And using SAP Business One’s robust reporting functionality, you can quickly analyze the performance of your vendors and adjust your procurement strategy accordingly.
Unified Workforce Management (HR & Payroll) for Goodwill Industries
One database. One user experience. One employee record.
In today’s challenging business environment, you need to get the most from every available resource, including your employees, to stay competitive and fuel growth. After all, the workforce is your most valuable — and likely your most expensive — asset. But disparate systems, manual or semi-automated processes, and limited visibility into employee data can stand in the way of workforce optimization. That’s why you need an integrated solution on a single database that provides real-time access to consistent, accurate workforce information to help you make informed decisions and drive bottom-line results.
Our workforce management suite provides the complete automation and high-quality information you need to manage your workforce — from hire to retire — using a unified workforce management platform with a common user interface, database, and workflows. It provides the single-source, real-time data access you need — across time and attendance, HR, payroll, and more — to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.
Our flexible, cloud-based solution is simple to use and easy to afford. Modules can be leveraged individually or as a complete, integrated workforce management suite. Predictable per-employee, per-month fees mean you pay only for what you use. Our software as a service (SaaS) delivery model eliminates worries about installing or maintaining software, staying up to date with legislative changes, or investing in the next upgrade. So you can focus on what you do best: growing your business.
Reporting and Administration
SAP Business One provides powerful integrated analytic and reporting tools to help you access the critical business information you need. With SAP Business One together with fully integrated Crystal Reports, you can gather data from multiple sources and generate timely and accurate reports based on critical company data across financials, sales, customers, inventory, service, and operations. Completely integrated with the Microsoft Office products and focused on data security, Crystal Reports allows you to choose from a variety of report formats and to control access to information displayed. You can also use drag-and-relate functionality and interactive drill downs through multiple levels of relevant data to get complete information instantly.
Control access to information – Assign access rights at user and group levels. Security features will help ensure that your employees view and access only the reports that they are authorized to access.
