SAP remains to be the number one choice among worldwide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. In 2016 SAP SE releases SAP ECC 6.0. Unlike SAP Business One, this one is a version of SAP ERP, an enterprise resource planning software develiped by the German company SAP SE.
What is SAP ECC 6.0?
It is the latest version of SAP ERP which helps your business integrate key business processes. Business processes included in SAP ERP include Operations (Sales & Distribution, Materials Management, Production Planning, Logistics Execution, and Quality Management), Financials (Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Financial Supply Chain Management) and Human Capital Management (Payroll, e-Recruiting).
The latest update to SAP ECC 6.0 is in 2013, the Enhancement Package (EHP7).
This software consist of helpful modules for businesses like utilities for marketing and sales, field service, product design and development, production and inventory control, human resources, finance and accounting. It collects and combines data from the separate modules to provide the company or organization with enterprise resource planning.
Some of the capabilities of SAP ERP are as follows:
- Allows easier global integration (barriers of currency exchange rates, language, and culture can be bridged automatically)
- Updates only need to be done once to be implemented company-wide
- Provides real-time information, reducing the possibility of redundancy errors
- May create a more efficient work environment for employees
- Vendors have past knowledge and expertise on how to best build and implement a system
- User interface is completely customizable allowing end users to dictate the operational structure of the product
SAP Business One and SAP ECC 6.0
SAP ERP is a complete solution providing your business with all you need to run a big company while SAP Business One is a complete solution as well specifically designed for Small and Medium Enterprises. Since SAP ERP is more complex and bigger it is more expensive than SAP Business One.
The difference between the two is very minimal and we highly recommend that if you are new to ERP you choose SAP Business One. Most of the modules contained in SAP ERP is also present in B1 and you can also integrate your business processes. Large businesses as well as SMEs can get a lot of saving in choosing the top ERP software in the Philippines plus it is also easier to implement and maintain compared to the larger SAP ECC 6.0.
