Can SAP B1 do this?

Hi All

Can SAP Business One capable of delivering this? if yes help me with guide or tip

A client of mine want to chane to SAP Business One, these his doubts towards SAP

They build masts for telecommunication companies. Their business areas are Site acquisition, Procurement, Logistics and Site build

They are in 7 African countries now (Nigeria, Zambia, Mali, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Cote D'Ivoire). Most are start ups apart from Nigeria and Cote D'Ivoire.

They currently use Sage evolution for their financials and logistics.

However, he does not find it robust enough and it cannot consolidate the data needed. Also, Sage cannot support multi-languages, a feature they require now that Biswal is expanding into francophone countries.

They have a warehouse in Ogun state from where they supply all their builders at the sites in Nigeria the materials needed to do the work of mast building. (Most of their vendors are masons, welders etc who do not have the tools or money to get the necessary equipment)

Each job from a client is seen as a separate project and should be handled in the system as such. There are situations where they need to create projects within projects and will require reporting of data at many levels. They would like to capture details per project, per state, per client. They would also like to track all attendant costs on cost centers (There are 34 cost centers/site) That want a cloud solution to cover the different countries but are not willing to host themselves at the moment.

let me know this can be possible with SAP B
