Corporate ERP for Midsize Company: Dynamics GP or SAP Business One

When you outgrow small business accounting packages: Quickbooks, Peachtree or you name it, there is always a risk to make the next Corporate ERP pick to be in dissonance with your business processes, Accounting, MRP and other requirements.  As you can expect, there is no universal Corporate ERP application, each vendor has advantages and disadvantages

In this small publication we will try to review selection criteria and make initial comparison of Microsoft Dynamics GP and SAP Business One; we will stick to core modules and will not be highlighting ISV add-ons, but you should be aware that both applications have great selection of third party ISV supported modules.  We are not pretending to be the top authority, however you should try to hear from consulting company, which has experience in several competing corporate ERP platforms


1.       Corporate ERP selection process.  In our opinion one of the key questions about specific ERP application fit for your business is if the vendor targets the application to the businesses in your industry or industry niche.  This question is probably the first to pose, assuming that your Corporate ERP needs go beyond generic GL, Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable


2.       SAP Business One.  This ERP application is perfect if your business has small manufacturing or on order assembly with some automation of inventory replenishment requirements, it also handles manufacturing items return and disassembly; service warranty contracts with following service under the warranty or billed out to the customer.  SAP B1 also comes with CRM module, where you could have your sales people to do their negotiation.  Good coverage for Inventory picking and packing. SB1 is relatively young ERP application, meaning that its user interface is very easy to discover and in many cases we hear customers to find on their own how to handle in SBO pretty complex business processes procedurally.  SAP B1 is also very efficient for international business as it is localized for numerous countries


3.       Microsoft Dynamics GP, formerly known as Great Plains Dynamics.  This ERP application is a good fit for nonprofit organization, especially with Grant Management programs, Field Service, Budget controlled Project organization, Midsize and large Discrete Manufacturing.  In integration with Microsoft CRM it is more flexible, comparing to SB1, as MS CRM in our opinion has more functionality and web interface.  Great Plains has definitely longer implementation history, comparing to SB1, meaning that your should expect more functionality available with existing GP modules.  If you are looking for international business corporate ERP, please know that GP is available in English speaking countries, plus in Quebec, and Spanish Speaking Latin Amarica


4.       Customization options.  Both GP and SB1 are exposed to modifications via SDK: eConnect for GP or SAP Business One SDK.  Great Plains has probably more advanced Integration Manager module, SB1 has Data Transformation Workbench, which is also powerful, but requires consultant help
