Benefits of SAP Business One for Engineering Services

SAP Business One is proven to help produce companies grow quickly and drive profit.


Scheduling Field Engineers

Many engineering companies have a team of field engineers to install and service equipment at customer locations. Making sure this workforce is as utilised as possible at the right margin is a complicated task, particularly in an environment that can change all the time. The mobile technology of SAP B1 allows quick parts ordering, sign-off on jobs and fast relocation. Service managers have an accurate view of ongoing work and can manage under-utilised capacity whenever it occurs.

Flexible Invoicing

When you undertake project work, flexible invoicing is a necessity. Each project can be agreed with a range of individual commercial terms that need to be handled by your accounting system. Some projects will require time and materials, fixed price and perhaps even contract milestone invoicing. Many ERP systems simply cannot handle this varied way of invoicing customers. SAP Business One with Job Costing has the flexibility and control that engineering firms need to manage customer projects and invoicing.

Purchase Requisitions

With a distributed workforce, keeping track of purchase requests can be very difficult and time-consuming. Being able to manage purchases on a project level enables project managers to monitor their purchases and keep track of their suppliers. External workers are also equipped with a mobile application to raise purchase requests, which removes the unnecessary duplication of work and streamlines the overall process.
