award

SAP Business One beat rivals Pegasus Opera and Exact to win AccountingWEB’s coveted award.

SAP Business One,  SAP’s flagship ERP product designed specifically for small to medium-sized businesses, has been awarded AccountWEB’s coveted award for software excellence.

Of the 8,000 + software users polled by AccountingWEB,  the majority went on to shortlist SAP Business One, Pegasus Opera, and Exact but SAP Business One went on to win the award for software excellence proving that software giant, SAP, still knows a thing or two when it comes to customer satisfaction.

Head of SAP Business One for UKI, Matt Sinclair says, “It’s a real pleasure and honour to receive this award. It was our customers who voted so it’s a huge thank you to all of our customers across the UK and Ireland for giving us this fantastic opportunity. I would also like to thank the development team for producing such an innovative and stable product, all our UKI partners for their continued dedication to the product, and finally the UKI team for their passion and commitment to SAP Business One.”

Prospettiva Managing Director, Tony Marturano, added, “SAP Business One’s breadth of functionality speaks for itself and this award is a testament to the fact that our customers agree.  I would like to thank each and every one of those who voted. Without you, this would not have been possible.”

Prospettiva’s origins as East Anglia’s largest Sage Solution Centre led it to become one of the first companies to adopt SAP Business One when it was introduced to the UK, and then to subsequently become the first SAP partner to implement all new SAP Business One on HANA.

‘Whaling’ – the new business email scam that targets senior executives

If you received an email from your CEO, requesting confidential or financial information, would you send it? Most would. Especially,  if it’s the kind of information he/she would normally request from you.

But what if that email was never sent by your boss, but by a fraudster on the other side of the world?

According  to a recently published post by Panda Security,  the practice of ‘whaling’ is increasing and is currently estimated to cost businesses over 2 million dollars per year.

The general advice when dealing with requests for sensitive or private information is to double check, in person or by phone, with the respondent to ensure that the request is genuine, and to consider carefully both the origin of the emails you receive as well as any attachment/links, before clicking on them.

Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com, Microsoft and Oracle trailing SAP in one specific area

This week, ukbusinessnsider.com reports that while Salesforce.com may be a leading online CRM solution for many businesses, it’s failing to gain sales outside of the USA.

The article goes on to say that the main reason for this may well be because that, unlike integrated solutions, such as SAP Business One, which also features its own integrated CRM feature, Salesforce.com’s offerings reside exclusively in the cloud, and thus are are not available on premise.

Meanwhile, SAP enjoys 72% of revenue outside of the United States.
