SAP Business One for Manufacturing
Cloud Software for Production and Operations
SAP® Business One is an ERP software designed for the small/midsize manufacturer, and includes comprehensive manufacturing capabilities to optimize inventory, streamline production and reduce manufacturing cycle time.
Many of the companies we’ve helped were frustrated with old or outdated manufacturing ERP software. They were tired of trying to keep up with multiple, siloed software systems for accounting and manufacturing, and came to us for an ERP software to help them grow.
What Manufacturers Look for in ERP Software
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems are powerful tools that can help you manage your business processes, data, and resources. When talking with small and midsize manufacturers, we consistently hear the same business needs they expect from manufacturing ERP software:
- Need to manage all types of bills of materials, and multi-level bills of materials.
- Need to manage production orders and routing electronically.
- Need to incorporate landed costs for material coming from overseas.
- Need to record, track and produce serial and/or batch numbers for incoming and outgoing products.
- Need to conduct materials planning, purchasing and inventory forecasting projections within MRP.
How does ERP Software Help Manufacturing?
By integrating sales, customers, financials, purchasing and production operations, an ERP solution gives you the cross-company visibility you need to make decisions based on real-time information. Armed with insight into every aspect of manufacturing, you can readily monitor performance, eliminate inefficiencies, and identify profitable opportunities.

Why SAP Business One and LBSi?
SAP Business One provides comprehensive manufacturing capabilities, tailored to address the business goals and pain points of the small to midsized manufacturer – with a solution that fits your budget and includes a capable core of operations that can be expanded as you scale and grow.
LBSi worked with a manufacturer of packaging products that was struggling with manual tracking of raw materials, and their production numbers were inconsistent. Now, inventory is visible and controlled throughout production, and the right amount of material is available to create the required amount of finished product.
“SAP Business One is a one-stop shop and my team is able to find multiple points of information. When using SAP Business One, everything you need is in one place.” – Bob Jenkins, Production Planning at Nelson Packaging.
