Have you ever heard the story about the intern who was given free rein to evaluate business software for his employer? Management was taken aback when they discovered the potential that enterprise resource planning (ERP) and real-time reporting dashboard offered their business to improve. After watching a live ERP demo, not only were they surprised by how easy it was to query information, they could also better facilitate regulatory compliance, track shipments across the supply chain, or better still, gauge the financial pulse of the organization.
Flash forward to 2017, and you’ll find that surprise has been replaced with expectation. Today’s business world expects that business people are fortifying their decision making with timely data regardless of where they are.
Enter SAP Business One. A robust ERP solution that allows users to generate accurate, real-time reports that facilitate faster and more informed decisions.

Since SAP Business One is such a comprehensive tool, some business managers may not be aware of how easy it is to query reports on virtually any data stored in the system. Here’s a list of 3 useful reports in SAP Business One that are not only quite useful but also easy to use:
The Accounts Receivables Aging Reports in SAP Business allows users to gauge their financial health of their customers, determines how long an invoice has been outstanding and provides a financial insight into your business and your customers.

The Price Report provides a comprehensive view of all discount rules and it can be accessed from the price field in the document.
The Inventory Counting feature in SAP Business One enables users to control their inventory counting process across their entire business, and generate up-to-date inventory reports to optimize your entire business operations from sales to distribution.
