The right balance
Requirements for business software are complex and often contradictory. For example, headquarters require a software that ensures uniformity, efficient business processes, compliance with all regulations and transparency. These requirements are met with standardizing and template-based ERP software.
Subsidiaries, on the other hand, want the most flexible software possible to achieve their individual strategic goals: to achieve more growth, to open up new markets or to reduce costs through global procurement and production. They need a lot of flexibility, but they also have to be integrated into higher-level corporate structures.
In this case, a multi-tier ERP strategy is advisable. It protects the ERP investments already made in the headquarters while smaller and flexible business software provides subsidiaries with more possibilities for autonomous action.
SAP standard integration
The first level software, for example SAP ERP, is used in larger branches, while the smaller branches use second level software (tier-two), for example SAP Business One. Both business solutions are linked to form a coordinated system for processes, applications and data.
Thanks to the integration framework included in SAP Business One, an open platform that delivers out-of-the-box integration scenarios that can be flexibly adapted and expanded, you not only protect your investment, but also have a clear IT strategy based on ONE solution provider: SAP.
