SAP Business One is an enterprise resource planning system optimized for small and medium-sized businesses. Users can manage essential business functions such as accounting, sales and purchasing, CRM, banking, production, inventory, and HR in a single system.
The release of SAP Business One 10.0 was accompanied by a few updates and changes, specifically a new web client.
Web Client Features
The new web client for SAP Business One 10.0 is a browser-based alternative to the current login platform known as the “thick” client.
The web client is designed to be platform neutral, meaning it can function on desktops, laptops, tablets, or phones that operate common browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Edge, or Firefox. Any of these browsers will require a URL address to access the logon screen. This URL will be unique to your implementation; you may be given a URL for use when you’re at the office and another URL for when you’re working remotely.
The web client login screen for SAP Business One requires the following items:
- Server name
- Company database (schema name)
- SAP Business One user name
- SAP Business One password
The web client’s representation of specific SAP Business One tasks are contained in a collection of tiles. These tiles can be arranged, moved, removed, and duplicated depending on your preferences. They are configured initially with eight predesignated groups—My Home, CRM, Sales, Purchasing, Business Partners, Analytics, Extensions, and Useful Links—that you can modify and hide as you like. You can also add additional groups.
The following features are included with the new web client:
- Send email function from list views
- Microsoft 365 integration enablement
- New training tiles and videos
- New app for opportunities
- Edit and create functionality for returns and credit memos
- New app for A/R reserve invoices
- The Purchase Quotation Comparison Report
- A credit limit utilization bar in document headers
- Enhancements to authorizations; activities; integration; Copy To, Copy From, and Serial Batch Bin enablement; and user-defined objects and user-defined fields analytics
The new web client is still being developed, with new features expected to release every month and a half or so. Upon completion, it will make SAP Business One comparable to contemporary cloud ERP systems.
