SAP Business One was arranged into distinct functional modules, covering the typical functions in a business organization. The most widely used modules were Financials, Sales Opportunities, Sales – A/R, Purchasing A/P, Business Parnters, Banking, Inventory and MRP (Material Resource Planning).
Each module handled specific business tasks on its own, but was linked to the other modules where applicable. For instance, an invoice from the billing transaction of Sales & Distribution would pass through to accounting, where it will appear in accounts receivable and cost of goods sold.
SAP typically focused on best practice methodologies for driving its software processes, to expand into vertical markets SAP VAR (Value Added Reseller) or SAP SSTP (Software Solution and Technology Partner) could develop SAP Business One Add-ons to fulfill specific business needs.
