Alex Wick, Global Marketing Manager
While organizations becoming more bullish about global expansion augmenting operations and penetrating into new foreign markets comes with its fair share of challenges and unique software requirements. Consequently, as the number of subsidiaries increases so does the variance in products and ERP systems adopted. To achieve autonomy and balance the software needs of an extended enterprise, organizations are faced with the challenges of coordinating operations, maintaining visibility and transparency, and consolidating data. According to Alex Wick, the global marketing manager at be one solutions, the answer to all these challenges lies with SAP Business One. As affirmed by the expert, the lack of transparency and consolidated data acts as a hindrance to communication between the headquarters and the subsidiaries. Governed by the mission to standardize ERP, be one solutions is disrupting the subsidiary business by assisting companies to establish uniformity, business process efficiency, and compliance along with maintaining transparency and visibility across their subsidiaries, globally.

The journey for be one solutions started 10 years ago when the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers rocked the financial system to its core. Having started two weeks before Lehman Brothers collapse, Wicks recalls, “The collapse drove the world into an abyss for a full year and then many other years to recover.” In the midst of such testing times for the financial industry, be one solutions was all geared to beat the odds and carve its path to success. Headquartered in Switzerland, the company has had a successful history of rolling out industry-specific, cost effective and easy-to-use solutions, catering to over 1 million users in 28 different languages and time zones. “There are 600 partners of SAP around the world, out of which only a handful concentrate on global business or global roll-out of Business One solution. Out of those handfuls only one, be one solutions has marked its presence in more than 54 countries around the world,” reveals Wick.

While SAP S4/HANA has evolved as the new digital core, Wick explains, large organizations spend millions of dollars on its implementation. Despite the fact that SAP Business One is specially designed for the small and medium-sized businesses, be one solutions offers the software to the largest brands in manufacturing, chemical, and automotive industries that have hundreds of subsidiaries around the world. This precisely serves as their unique selling proposition.
