The following guidance is designed to help UK companies budget for implementing SAP Business One and help clarify some of the decisions you will need to make.
Estimating the cost is a two step process (follow links to find out more):
As you may know, SAP Business One offers cloud and on-premise deployment options. Our cost estimates include both options.
SAP Business One is designed for rapid deployment. After all, you don't want to be kept waiting for the benefits that your new ERP system will bring. With SAP Business One from LAKE, you don't have to.
To make things even quicker, LAKE is exclusively offering a best practice SAP configuration that can get you up and running in as little as 5 days.
There are three types of user:
The minimum number of users is one Professional. The price of each type of user reflects its scope, with Professional being the most expensive.
The recent addition of Shop Floor Operator significantly lowers the total cost of ownership of SAP Business One. Contact LAKE for details about this exciting development.
In most cases, Business One is all the software that you will need. Occasionally, the project scope requires the inclusion of specialist modules. A brief discussion of project scope will soon determine whether this is necessary.
In addition to software costs, you should factor in the cost of software support. Annual support entitles you to help desk support and free software upgrades. In the case of on-premise deployment, annual support is charged as a percentage of the current price of your software. With Cloud deployment, annual support is included in the service charge.
The amount of implementation services you will need is strongly influenced by the project scope.
One aspect of scope relates to the functional areas you want to deploy:
Another important aspect of project scope relates to third party systems you wish to integrate with. For example, integration with the Magento e-commerce platform or integration with a weighbridge system.
There are two types of project: one is comprehensive and tailored to your business, the other is based on Made Simple for SAP Business One. The choice is yours.

"SAP is really good value compared to our other options. The initial investment and ongoing costs were more acceptable to a business of our size."
