In addition to managing inventories in multiple warehouses and locations, SAP Business One also supports dropship and consignment warehouses. The solution also supports bin locations, enabling pick and pack optimization in outbound logistics. The software has advanced inventory functionalities: inventory can be taken traditionally or as a cycle count, in which case each item or item group can be assigned their own inventory cycle. Inventory counting can be assigned to individual employees or teams. Warehouse valuation can be defined at item-level with FIFO, moving average price, standard cost or based on batch.
Sales and purchasing
In SAP Business One, both sales and purchase documents can be drawn from a base document in the transaction chain without having to re-enter any information. For example, pick lists can be created based on sales orders and, in turn, deliveries can be generated based on the pick lists. A/R invoices can be generated individually or in bulk based on deliveries. Purchase orders can be created from sales orders and A/P invoices from purchase orders. Any document in the transaction chain can be used to open a relationship map, which is a visualization of all the documents related to the transaction and the relationships between them. The ease of the order-delivery chain is also guaranteed by EDI messaging with central trading groups.
SAP Business One enables versatile pricing possibilities. The actual price lists can be created by entering price lists manually or a new price list can be created based on an existing price list and a factor. For example, a sales price list can be created based on the prices of the purchase price list and a factor. In addition, discounts based on time or volume can be set in the software for items, item groups or brands. A base price list can be assigned for each customer or vendor. Furthermore, time or volume-discounts can be determined for individual customers or customer groups.
