    Raviti Mishra,

    Excellent question !!

    You would need to understand that every company is different in its own ways but in general this is my take on this.

    SME's lack visibility on their TRUE financial position. Excel, home grown software or other basic accounting system do not provide a 360 deg.

    Visibility to Inventory (stock) levels is insufficient. This results in the business carrying excess stock of items and sometimes keeping slow moving items for too long or sometime not enough stock when there is demand. There in-efficiencies can be prevented by using a ERP solution like Business One.

    Forcasting of future demand is generally done in Excel and might not be accurate and the qualifications lie in the hands of one or more pruchasing managers who then tend to become important and challenging. It is always better to have systems that can used by anyone who plays the role of Purchasing and this would be possible by the using the demand forcastng and inventory planning functions in Business One. (MRP module)

    There are 100's that I could share but these are some important ones.

    Best wishes

      In continuing,with other experts...SBO is very good in fuctionality breadth and lacks in depth. Meaning it covers all departmental obligations of a organisation for the creamy features,but when it needs a in-depth functions it's depend on partner's solution capability and ability.
