SAP Business One for Retail
Retailers have a number of hurdles to tackle in
today’s business landscape. To maintain and grow
their position within an increasingly competitive
marketplace, retailers must find innovative ways to
remain competitive that are not based solely on
price. To successfully stay in business and ensure
profitability, retailers must effectively manage
business variables, reduce operational costs,
maximise efficiencies, provide excellent customer
service and work together with suppliers. In order
to keep ahead of the competition retailers must
monitor customer buying patterns and accurately
forecast future trends.
Everyday retailers struggle to compete with
optimising operational effectiveness. They lack the
appropriate technology solutions and are managing
with legacy applications that are not compatible
and non-integrated with their business/accounting
Retailers need an end to end solution, which
provides them with a real time view of their
operations with centralised control and enables
faster, more accurate, more informed decision
SAP Business One for Retail allows you to make
timely decisions that help cut costs, boost sales
and retain customers. The intuitive, easy to use,
point of sale module leaves sales staff free to focus
on making the retail experience more enjoyable for
