SAP B1 – Myths and facts about SAP
SAP has proven beneficial for enterprises, covering all their ERP needs. However, there are certain myths about SAP still prevalent amongst the business community. These myths have made a large number of enterprises apprehensive about adopting SAP models. Thus, it becomes necessary to dispel these myths to give businesses a clear understanding of the SAP ecosystem. Here are a few myths, misconceptions, and facts regarding SAP that will help you realize the true potential of SAP.
SAP can only be afforded by big companies
This is the most prevalent myth doing the rounds amongst business leaders. The truth, however, is on the contrary. SAP Business One is designed specifically according to the needs and requirements of small and medium enterprises. It aims to automate business processes in finance, human resources, planning, and operations so that medium and small businesses can effectively utilize their resources and scale their business. It fits the budget requirements of small businesses and hence doesn’t add an extra financial burden on businesses.
Implementing SAP is time-consuming
This myth is partially true. The time required for implementing SAP at your enterprise depends upon your business requirements. Implementing SAP can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months. However, this process can become even lengthy and complex, if you don’t have proper guidance for implementing SAP. Certified SAP partners such as Crave Infotech can assist you in implementing SAP B1 as per your requirements, removing all the complexities involved, making the process smooth and hassle-free for you.
Managing SAP is too complex
False. SAP B1 can be managed as easily as other ERP software, but you’ll have the edge with SAP B1. SAP’s user-interface, Fiori is simplistic in nature and can be easily understood by every employee. Fiori makes the use of SAP B1 much easier. With Fiori, you can have complete control over your data, with the data being structurally organized in a single place. And with cloud computing capabilities, the data can be accessed and edited on any supported device, at any given time. Thus, SAP simplifies things for you so that you can focus on other important tasks like scaling your business to new heights.
SAP B1 cannot be customized
SAP B1 comes with a variety of options for customization. Enterprises can customize SAP’s offerings according to their industry type. You can even have add-ons or custom modules as per your specific enterprise needs. The customization options made available by SAP are limitless and it’s up to you as to how you can leverage SAP to fully maximize its potential.
SAP B1 requires all modules to be implemented together
The implementation of SAP modules in multiple steps is feasible. You can decide what modules you require for your enterprise and implement them accordingly. You only need proper guidance regarding the modules you would require as you keep expanding your business. Crave Infotech can provide industry-specific guidance depending upon your business requirements.

SAP can be used without Fiori
Yes, SAP S/4HANA can be used without Fiori. However, the main advantage of using S/4HANA is the integration of Fiori. The business value you can extract out of SAP is restricted if you’re not using Fiori. With SAP Fiori, enterprises can increase their productivity as Fiori interfaces are easy to understand. Fiori also has multi-device support, so you can use your SAP module on a desktop, laptop, or mobile.
