Amazing Enhancements Made to Business One

Recently, SAP introduced the latest version of SAP Business One, 9.0. In addition to enhancements made to the Administration, Accounting, Inventory, Banking, Sales and Purchasing functionality of the ERP system, SAP added the Business One Improvement Program to the application. The Improvement Program enables users to provide their feedback about the SAP Business One (SAP B1) enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to SAP. When you participate in the SAP Business One Improvement Program, you have the option to provide feedback to SAP. The application collects diagnostic and usage information about how you use SAP, completely anonymously, and provides SAP with feedback to better understand your needs and improve product quality. In turn, that allows SAP to provide enhanced utility of specific products.

As you might expect, SAP constantly improves its enterprise resource planning systems. SAP continually develops their business software solutions to ensure that the systems work efficiently while aiding your business. SAP recently released SAP Business One version 9.0 which adds a great deal of value to your business processes. Below are some additional highlights of Version 9.0:


Enhancements were made to the Master Data Cleanup Wizard within SAP Business One. This feature was enhanced to support data privacy protection for business partners, business partner contacts and employee master data. It also offers users the choice to deactivate business partners and employees, with an option to reverse the status at any time.


Within this the version 9.0 of Business One, users can enjoy  a flexible system that is centralized and has inventory G/L account determination capabilities. With this G/L determination, you can assign inventory G/L accounts by item groups, items, warehouses, business partner groups, tax IDs, ship-to countries, ship-to states, or any combination of them.


With respect to managing fixed assets using a fully integrated solution, within the most current version of SAP Business One, 9.0, you can plan the depreciation of your fixed assets using a new “Straight Line Period Control” method.  Further, you can also (a) calculate the depreciation of fixed assets with the monthly base, (b) manage fixed assets-related information in the item master data category and (c) account for purchases and sales of your fixed assets. Further, can create payments with cash discounts, change the asset class, appreciate a fixed asset and track the statuses and detailed transactions by means of two new dynamic reports.

Sales and Purchasing

The latest version of Business One allows for the cancellation of Sales and Purchasing documents. In SAP Business One 9.0, you can cancel most sales and purchasing documents that usually trigger postings. As a result, a corresponding cancellation document is created to reverse the associated accounting, tax, and inventory changes.

With regard to Purchase Requests, users can now initiate an internal purchase process when you create a purchase request document for items or services. Further, you’re able to copy it to a purchase quotation or purchase order.


Bin Locations are now in SAP Business One. Within Business One 9.0, you can easily manage bin locations for your warehouses and enable bin location function for individual warehouses. After enabling the bin location function, you can record bin locations in the warehouses for all receipts and issues of inventory. During the receipt, issue, and transfer of goods, 9.0 allows you to automate the process of allocating goods to and from bin locations. To facilitate the management of bin locations, SAP Business One 9.0 supports the generation, update, and deletion of bin locations in batches. Additionally, you can get an overview of all bin locations and check the inventory statuses and movements in bin locations using select reports. 

Implementation and Configuration

Business One 9.0 now includes an Implementation Center. It is a central location for the implementation and configuration of SAP Business One. The implementation center offers users the ability to configure company settings, generate configuration reports, migrate data from legacy systems, copy data between companies, and execute implementation projects, and more.
