SAP Business One vs SAP Business ByDesign

SAP Business One or B1 has been around for many years and has historically been SAP’s go to product for smallish enterprises. Starting around 2007 SAP started to design a full cloud-based SaaS ERP offering that is now called Business ByDesign (ByD). ByD now has the largest investment from SAP and the strongest roadmap to dominate the global SME ERP market and should be considered by every SME and current Customer of B1.


SAP Business One or B1 is a single integrated solution designed for small to mid-sized companies typically from as low as 5 – 75 users. It incorporates Financials, Sales, Service, Inventory, Purchasing, very basic Manufacturing, CRM, Reporting and Microsoft Office Integration. It is not a true cloud product with SAP but now is offering a hosted version (2016). SAP Business One suits companies in Distribution, Manufacturing, Basic Retail, eCommerce and Services.


SAP ByDesign also plays in the SME space with users from 20 – 1,500+. It is a true cloud only product covering all the areas of Business One but with a lot more coverage and flexibility to get what you need from your ERP System.


With ByDesign, you chose the modules you need at a price point very close to that of B1 – modules include Financials, CRM, HCM, SCM, Project Management, SRM, Compliance Management and Executive Management. It is licensed on a named user per month basis and only accessed through your browser meaning no need for costly servers or internal IT support – as with any SaaS solution.


Acclimation has quick upgrade paths to move your business from B1 to ByD. Please call us for more information and pricing.

Have you reached the point where your business is running you, instead of the other way around? Are you proactively managing projects, or merely reacting to the latest incident report?


Manufacturing companies need to make large investments in production equipment and systems to improve efficiency, and in Research & Development to develop new products. Capital expenditure can range from 3 to 6 percent of revenue.


Distribution companies face increasing demands from customers and suppliers. Large retailers buy in large quantities and run their own warehousing systems, and so may bypass distribution companies altogether to buy direct from the manufacturer.

Life Sciences

Improve time to market for pioneering and compliant therapies and products. SAP Business ByDesign offers a scalable solution for biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other life sciences.
