What is new in SAP Business One Version 10.0

Posted on 09-Mar-2020 by Chandrashekhar Rajarpod Project Manager

SAP Business One Version 10 is the first major update for the popular ERP software.

With the big release of Version 10, SAP is fulfilling its vision of making Business One the ERP of choice for small- and medium-sized & growing enterprises (SMEs) in the digital economy, as it was laid out in the SAP Business One Road Map document.

To achieve this goal, SAP is positioning a cloud-hosted instance of SAP Business One on the SAP HANA database, accessible through the new Web Client, as a global and highly scalable real-time ERP software.

Some of the next steps that are planned include fully committing to leveraging the strengths of SAP HANA, adopting the Integration Framework 2.0, and accelerating the transformation of SAP Business One into a cloud solution accessible through mobile apps for an increasingly mobile workforce.

In the meantime, SAP Business One Version 10 lays the groundwork with a comprehensive list of new features and enhanced functionalities, with more still to come in the pipeline.

1. Web Client

Web Client for SAP Business One is designed according to SAP Fiori user experience principles. It is available in all SAP Business One UI languages and supports the core logic and processes

The Web Client supports the core processes and business logic of SAP Business One, such as;

  • Sales Orders

  • Additional Sales Documents

  • Business Partners

  • Items

  • Activities

  • Analytics

Note - Web Client will only be available if you’re running your version of SAP Business One on the SAP HANA platform.

2. Usability Enhancements

SAP has introduced the new Belize Deep skin for the desktop application, which is inspired by SAP Fiori and utilises SAP UI5 technology. It is currently available when you’re using the Fiori-style Cockpit

Version 10’s enhancements to the usability of SAP Business One does not end with refreshing of the desktop application with a modern UX design. The user interface itself has also been enhanced with new functionalities.

In addition, the User Name and Company Name have now been moved to the top centre of the SAP Business One screen. You can click it to open the Choose Company window directly.

This allows you to switch between company databases and users with one click, making it much more convenient for you to access and work with the databases of several companies at any time.

3. Financial Management Enhancements

Version 10 comes with enhancements to functionalities for business processes across the departments, but one category which applies to every user is Financial Management.

Golden arrows are added next to the account codes in financial reports allowing users to drill down into the account record within the Chart of Accounts

Available in Balance Sheet, Trial Balance, and Profit and Loss Statement Direct access to account details and account balance of relevant accounts increases usability and transparency

4. Interactive Gantt Charts

Interactive Gantt Chart allows Project Phases to be moved or extended/shortened interactively New fields added representing Project Due Date and Finish Date

You'll find that Project Management has become easier than ever, with the introduction of Interactive Gantt Charts as a new planning tool in your repertoire.

The Interactive Gantt Charts that come with Version 10 are no longer static overviews that merely reflect any changes and adjustments in your project; you can now drag-and-drop elements in them to update your project details directly.

5. Microsoft Office 365 Integration

Starting from Version 10, SAP Business One will be integrated with Microsoft Office 365, as well as Microsoft OneDrive.

The new SAP Business One 10.0 Template Management feature also offers more flexibility for reporting and managing your documents. This means you can design your own templates for exporting data out of Business One.

6. 64-bit only Support

As of Version 10, SAP Business One will support only the 64-bit Windows operating system.

That said, future software package downloads will be smaller in size, thanks to the removal of redundant 32-bit executables. You’ll find that it will be faster to update Business One from now on. 

And many more changes in Sales, Purchase, Finance, Project Management, Production & Inventory Management.

With a major shift towards improved cloud deployment and new capabilities like the Web Client, SAP is positioning Business One to compete with Oracle – NetSuite and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central for the cloud-hosted ERP market.
