How spending can be the best way to save

Sometimes popular opinion can be misleading. Things you’ve accepted to be true for years can turn out not to be what you expect. And other times, there can be a kernel of truth in these old sayings. A popular piece of received wisdom is that you have to speculate to accumulate, or, in simple terms, you’ve got to spend money to make money – the cheapest or easiest option is not always the best. Most businesses know that you can’t just throw money at a problem. However, they also recognise that carefully planned purchases can pay dividends.


As specialists in the SME space, we work with many small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and know how important every financial decision is to them. That’s why it is important that we can demonstrate the value of what we do. Most of the businesses we talk to know SAP software can help them reduce costs. However, some of them have been under the impression that the software is only available to large multi-national organisations with large budgets. These businesses risk missing out on the potential their business possesses.


We get to break the good news that SAP has an affordable option for SMEs – SAP Business One. In fact, SAP has around 88,000 SME customers to prove it. These businesses are not only reducing costs with SAP, they are also boosting profitability. In most cases, that translates into a quick return on investment. As a result, we find that most of the SMEs we talk to and work with can’t afford to not have SAP Business One as part of their businesses DNA.
