Does Reporting on the Financial Details of Your SAP Business One Data Require Exporting to Excel?
Preparing Ad Hoc Reports is Difficult and Relies on IT Skills
Finance teams frequently need to query SAP Business One data to answer ad hoc questions. However, SAP B1 data structures are complex, understanding them requires significant expertise, and modifying existing reports or creating your own requires SQL or Crystal Reports. This leaves finance teams dependent on scarce IT skills to create and modify reports, resulting in delays and frustration.
Out-of-the-Box Reports are Too Inflexible for Finance
Finance and accounting teams need to report and drill across multiple dimensions from the Financials. You want to see the full picture of your business performance and need to access data from multiple systems, whether it’s other SAP B1 modules or separate business systems. Such data groupings are difficult to create with the native SAP B1 tools.
Accelerate Common Report Creation Processes
When you’re looking to spend more time on value-added analysis, you need to find new ways to increase your productivity, replacing manual processes like exporting to spreadsheets, flipping between Excel and SAP B1 to validate data, and formatting reports.
