SAP Business One Customization or Locating Technology Consulting Firm

Small Business ERP consulting industry is very competitive and the competition itself could be categorized as local versus nationwide as well as in offered platforms such as SAP Business One, Microsoft Dynamics GP, Peachtree, QuickBooks and others

Nationwide firms might be better positioned to help you with custom software development, integration and Crystal Reports.  Local small firms are good in initial software sales and following generic standard features implementation.

1. When do you really need second opinion and search for technology consulting firm?  Well avoiding philosophical sentences it is probably when your initial reseller screwed up the project where technology expertise was a key.  In the case of SAP B1 it is recommended to check if your chosen consulting firm is versatile in such technologies as Software Development Kit programming in Microsoft Visual Studio, Data Transfer Workbench.  There are ISV supported third party add-ons such as iBolt but we do not have the room to address these tools in our paper

2. Competition layers.  As we already mentioned above the competition should be further categorized.  In initial software sale there is advantage for the firms close to your office as they could shake your hands, talk to you face-to-face and impress you in executive demos.  Is it really an easy way to be local Small Business ERP consulting firm?  Probably not as you would have to compete with somebody located across the street or being in short driving distance.  Technology consulting firms might be rather concentrating on secondary Small Business ERP market where they are facing unhappy customers and have to provide second opinion.  There are cases related to the fact that SAP is offering high end Corporate ERP solutions targeted to Multinational Corporations with the option to integrate Business One as accounting application for small overseas branch

3. Customization and Competition overview in international aspects.  Business One is featured as Small Business ERP system being localized worldwide or better to say in major world regions such as China, Brazil, Russia, Latin America and Europe.  It is very advanced in offering customization without the need to do programming in SDK.  You can add new user defined tables as well as extend existing tables with user defined fields.  These options are available directly in settings.  Custom business logic often requires animation via SDK programming in MS Visual Studio in such programming languages as C# and VB

4. Is Customization required?  The answer actually depends on the situation.  We have heard success stories where customer finds the way to cover the logic gap via procedural way and in user defined tables and fields.  But if you have strong IT department then chances are high that your support personnel already explored different approaches and came to the conclusion that custom programming is preferable way to go

5. Please call us 1-866-304-3265, 1-269-605-4904.  We have local presence in Chicagoland, Southern California, South West Michigan, Houston and Dallas areas of Texas.
