Get The Most Out Of SAP Business One

You have been using SAP Business One for some time; it could be months or years – but are you getting the most out of your system?

Here are a list of questions to ask yourself:

  • Are you using spreadsheets for a system process?
  • Are your reports giving you data that you have to then transfer to Excel or Word before they are submitted to someone else?
  • Are you calculating VAT outside of SAP Business One?
  • Are you calculating anything outside of SAP Business One?
  • Do you enter payments manually into your bank?
  • Are you sending documents one by one via post or email?
  • Are you missing data within SAP Business One that you need?
  • Do you run multiple Companies but do not have inter company reports at a button click?
  • Are you missing links between Sales and Customer service?
  • Are you missing vital reports that could save time and money?
  • Are your transactions taking more than 20-30 seconds to enter into SAP Business One?
  • Are your processes confusing or cumbersome?
  • Are you missing information that you can’t get to in 10 seconds?
  • Are you missing documented business processes?
  • Are your users not getting the most out of the system?

If you answered yes to any or all of the questions above then you can benefit from a visit for a system tune up, report writing and a process/ system improvement session. SAP Business One is a great system which can give you everything you need within seconds – it may just need a few tweaks to get you there. If you think your system can be improved, you’re probably right. Let’s find out together!

Exciting times at 1 Dash 1. Over the last 2 weeks we have been assisting an Oil industry client by building a Production Process solution to enable them to work more efficiently and provide their customers with the best service possible by ensuring that their purchases are received within budget and on time before time. Not only has the new system reduced data entry by 90% but the ability to see all the required data in an easy to read and in real time has vastly improved how the system users can perform their jobs.

The solution consisted of automatically calculating fields, creating new fields to capture data which was previously maintained across several spreadsheets, drawing and replicating data from parent to child forms, real time reports, real time supplier reports, capturing technical sheets, capturing and providing certification and tolerance documents and much, much more.

Saving our clients time and money is what we strive to provide and most importantly it’s what we enjoy!

If your company requires assistance with improving a process whether it is in SAP Business One or anything else, we can help.

SAP Business One Year End Closing Instructions

SAP kindly provide a 50 page document which provides in depth instructions on the Year End process but most people only need to know how to run the actual Year End process in SAP B1.  Because it is a once yearly procedure, it is forgotten year to year. Here are the instructions for running the Year End process in Business One.

Year End Process in SAP B1

To carry forward the balances of the P&L accounts to the corresponding account in the balance sheet
(or several different balance sheets), you can use the period-end closing function. You can store the
results initially as a report and then post them at a later stage.
If you make postings after entering the balances carried forward, you need to restart the period-end
closing routine to include these subsequent postings.

EXAMPLE
Administration / Utilities / Period-End Closing

When you execute the report, the Period-End Closing window opens:

In the Period-End Closing – Selection Criteria window, you can specify the same account
in the Retained Earnings Account and the Period-End Closing Account fields.

Once you have executed the period-end closing for the selected expenses and revenue accounts, 2
transactions are created for each account and 2 journal entries are automatically created to reflect
those transactions.
The balances of those P&L accounts are posted to the period-end closing account on the same day
(the last day of the period) and the balances are reduced to zero. The first journal entry reflects this.
On the first day of the subsequent period, the period-end closing account is posted to the
corresponding balance carried forward to the retained earnings account in the balance sheet. The
second journal transaction reflects this.

The balance of the period-end closing account is zero.

This is how to run the SAP Business One Year End Process.

Are you getting the best support for your SAP Business One system?

SAP B1 customers generally ask this question whether it is due to certain issues taking some time to be solved, a business requirement that hasn’t quite been provided within the software or occasionally due to a breakdown in the relationship between the customer and the SAP Partner that provides them with support.

Can you have a field that does this?
Would it be possible to do that?
My VAT report doesn’t include a Tax Code that I want it to.
Is it possible to see which Customer pays the fastest?

We hear all of the questions and we provide the answers.

1 Dash 1 offers support to solve the problems you need solving. Fast, effective and efficient. It’s what you want and it’s what we provide, naturally.  We listen to your questions and we will provide an answer by phone, email, text or carrier pigeon if required!
