  • 4. What Customers and Partners say… I have noticed a few changes immediately. The first thing is the new pretty colors. The background is soothing to “ the eyes, and the new menu colors and icons have a nice updated look. The second thing is the new system message that appears at the bottom of the screen. Integration of Crystal Reports, data archiving, use of multiple units of measurement, Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) features are all very helpful. Overall, the readability is much improved on marketing documents. In short, I am greatly impressed by SAP Business One 8.8. Spectra Computech, SAP Business One customer in India “ One of the big advantages of the new version is the possibility to enter a negative invoice. The total value of deposit that customers return to us is sometimes higher than the purchase amount. Previously we had to make an invoice as well as a credit invoice. Schulp Vruchtensappen, SAP Business One customer in the Netherlands Performance has significantly improved in 8.8. Our initial tests for a customer specific situation showed that “ the ‘choose-from-list’ which could take 8 sec to display before, now only takes 3 sec in 8.8. Further, entering a sales order with 100 lines in this specific site seems to take half the time as before“. Boyum IT, SAP Business One Channel Partner in Denmark. “ With the new upgrade wizard, there is less preparation and work for us to upgrade our customers. It is a well secured and robust. The first customer we upgraded was done in 4 hours, including technical upgrade, set up of configuring additional topics (bank statement processing, crystal reports) and instruction on new functionalities.
