Web-based SAP Business One?

Hi, everybody

Our company uses SAP Business One (version 9) on a multi-user basis. The Server is in the same building as all our users, and the system has been working satisfactorily for years.

Recently, we have created a department in another town. The users do not have access to SAP B1, and all their documents are sent to Head Office for processing.

We want the users of the department to be able to connect to SAP and input their entries directly in SAP.

What are the different methods of achieving this?

I hear that some companies use SAP B1 on a web-based configuration.

I have a few questions:

(1) What steps must we follow (in broad terms) to change our present configuration to a web-based configuration?

(2) I develop many reports and add-ons using SQL Stored procedures, Crystal Reports, and SAP B1 SDK.

Suppose we change to a web-based configuration. How will this affect my reports and add-ons? Will I have to rewrite them all over?

Thanks for enlightening me.

I have not received any response so far.

I would be glad to correspond with someone who uses SAP B1 on a web-based configuration.

Thanks .

Hi Leon,

Refer to Browser Access Documentation for your requirements. Check the link below:

Browser Access

Also you need not to rewrite everything in terms of add-ons, reports.. Just try to set it up on the Public IP.

Hope it helps!

Kind regards,

Hi, Ankit

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I will study the docs you sent me.

>> Also you need not to rewrite everything in terms of add-ons, reports

I also intend to use Crystal Reports for Visual Studio, although for the moment, I am using the stand-alone version of CR.

If you say that I do not need to rewrite everything in my add-on, then why is it that Crystal Reports.NET documentation come in 2 flavours: a version for developing Windows forms, and a slightly different version for developing Web Forms? Surely this must be because Web Forms are not developed the same way as Win Forms?

Also, Web Forms do not look like Windows Forms? I can make a Win Form fit my desktop squarely. I can't do this with a Web Form?

Surely, if I give access to SAP, I must redesign all my Windows Forms as Web Forms?

Sorry if I am confused. I am only an amateur.

Best Regards
