Watch a video demonstration of the SAP Business One Mobile Sales App, to learn  more about the exclusive benefits to SAP HANA users.

SAP Business One KPIs in Detail

KPIs are useful because they provide a quick visual of valuable information at a glance like ‘Open Amount of Deliveries for Customers, and ‘Customer Receivables.’ In addition to these preconstructed KPIs, you can also create your own KPIs and publish them to the app so that your salespeople have access to the graphics that are most relevant to them.

Many of the KPIs are drill-down capable; reports like 'Potential Amount of My Open Opportunities by Stage' for instance.

SAP Crystal Reports Are Accessible Too

Any Crystal report that you create in SAP Business One (that you make mobile available) can be published for use in the mobile applications for your team.

Reports like Credit Limit by Customer, Inventory Status, Monthly Sales Analysis, Service Call Backlog are useful for a salesperson out in the field without access to a computer. What's more, these reports are also running in real-time against the database to ensure that your employees have access to the most current information available.

Access Customer Records

The Customer feature in the SAP Business One Sales app also puts all the pertinent contact information that your salespeople need while on the road, contact details, account balance, credit limit used, and proposed reorder dates. You can also drill down into each contact to access even more information that you would find in the customer card in SAP Business One such as sales orders, history, and opportunities.

Keep your Day Organized with the Activities Feature

Salespeople will appreciate the activities feature in the SAP Business One Mobile Sales app. As a default, it displays activities that the salespeople need to do now. It allows you to make calls directly from the app as well.
