We are always being asked to compare and contrast solutions. Below is a bulleted list comparing SAP Business One and Sage MAS500.
- SAP is a Total Business Solution. Includes Accounting, Distribution, Manufacturing, Sales Force Automation & Customer Service in one integrated solution with one code base, one database with a single installation. It’s your choice as to how much or little to use, but as you use more, its available with the one price per user. Since CRM is part of the standard solution, you can use it in all areas. For example, create to-do’s and followups regarding a purchase order, a General Ledger Entry, or collections activity against an invoice.
- MAS500 is only ERP, not CRM. You need to purchase Sage Saleslogix for CRM and then use their newly released (and still being debugged) integration. This is the 3rd integration in 4 years as the prior ones have been terrible.
