Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) October 20, 2006 -–
ESC Software today announced that it has been named by SAP America, Inc. to deliver the SAP Business One solution to small and midsize businesses (SMBs) in Arizona. An integrated, affordable business management solution for SMBs, SAP Business One extends the benefits of SAP’s business applications expertise to a new and rapidly growing segment of customers. As an SAP Business One partner, ESC Software will provide Arizona businesses with the technology, business process and consulting knowledge to develop successful, long-term IT strategies.
Based in Tempe, AZ, ESC Software is teaming closely with SAP to respond to a growing need among Arizona SMBs struggling to gain and maintain competitive operating advantages. The partnership will provide software and consulting services to enable SMBs with limited resources and technology infrastructure to gain immediate benefits in better managing their businesses. Together, ESC Software and SAP will provide SMBs across Arizona and the Southwest the ability to make smart IT decisions, improve future performance, and achieve long-term IT success.
While many small and midsize firms have invested in multiple software applications, many report that they lack the ability to access the information they need to make critical decisions when they need it. They face a pressing need for easy access to real-time information. SAP Business One is designed to help small and midsize businesses streamline their operational and managerial processes by providing robust and fully integrated financial, inventory and sales and service management capabilities.
SAP Business One supports companies with as few as ten and as many as several hundred employees, and can be implemented in weeks. The solution’s award-winning Drag & Relate data navigation system provides users with intuitive data access simply by highlighting and dragging pieces of information on the screen. It features an integrated sales force automation system for pipeline tracking, opportunity management, strategic selling, and contact management. Key functionalities also include material requirement planning, comprehensive financial management, with multi-currency, budgeting, and bank reconciliation; a complete inventory management system, with kitting and multi-level price lists; and a comprehensive reporting module that allows easy access to any data.
Most SMBs view software purchases with caution, expecting tangible operational improvements before spending large sums of money. SAP Business One not only provides immediate results in operating efficiency and real-time business decisions, but also comes with an affordable price tag. This affordably priced new solution, starting at approximately $11,000 for three users, is designed for those businesses that recognize the importance of leveraging business software as an integral component of their business growth strategy.
“We are pleased to add SAP Business One to our product offering, and believe it can only strengthen our commitment to delivering exceptional business software and services to our clients,” said Alan Hardy, CPA, CISA, owner of ESC Software. “SAP Business One and related service offerings are competitively priced for the smaller business while providing a value-added service that both improves productivity and ultimately reduces costs. SAP Business One is making the leap into enterprise management easy and affordable with systems that work the first time, every time.”
