SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration

Expand the reach of your business with SAP Business One subsidiary integration to get all your subsidiaries connected.


SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration


The continuous drive to reduce costs in inter-company trade, and through the supply chain, drives much of the integration effort in information systems today. Integration is a challenge though – requiring deep IT expertise, long implementation times and high-levels of maintenance. So running incompatible systems across the business network is no longer viable.


Through the release of SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration for Netweaver (B1iSN), large enterprises can now explore the cost effective ways of integrating their subsidiaries, operating divisions, suppliers and trade partners to gain control, increase visibility and reduce costs.


Get the best of both worlds by having a powerful large SAP business ERP in your head office and an easy-to-use small business ERP solution, such as SAP Business One, that supports all necessary processes in your smaller subsidiaries.

  • It is localised for more than 40 countries, but also has a small footprint in terms of TCO and end user skills
  • It can run on-premise or hosted, overcoming infrastructure limitations prevalent in much of Africa
  • Lack of infrastructure in rural areas in Africa are suited to on-premise operations, instead of replying on internet connections
  • SAP Business One is very easy to use and can eliminate the challenge of computer literacy
  • It is quick to implement, and well suited to a template based roll-out
  • It gives smaller subsidiaries the independence they need to be flexible, but with central oversight and control


SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration provides head-office with an accurate, up-to-date view of the entire business, including remote divisions and subsidiaries. Operationally, it automates many of the key transactions between head-office and subsidiary, subsidiary and subsidiary, etc. including:

  • Synchronisation of master data between all corporate entities
  • Distribution of logistics transactions between business partners
  • Central reporting, control and streamlining between business partners


SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration is customisable and definable – so head-office has full control over the extent, complexity and timing of integration. It’s also useful to integrate business partners (even the small ones) to extend business networks to further reduce costs and improve efficiency in the supply chain.


Is SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration right for my business?


SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration is best fit for customers who want to seamlessly integrate SAP Business One with any SAP NetWeaver based solution such as R3/Business Suite or SAP Business All-in-One.


This scenario typically arises in cases where a smaller business that runs SAP Business One is a subsidiary of the larger organisation and require inter-branch or inter-company integration. Seamless integration of SAP Business One with other SAP-related solutions is a key part of the vision for SAP Business One, and alignment with the SAP NetWeaver strategy is essential in achieving this goal.


What does SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration do?


SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration (SAP NetWeaver – B1iSN) enables SAP Business One to rapidly and easily integrate with components of the SAP Business Suite and SAP NetWeaver.


The solution is based on the SAP Business One Integration Technology, a state-of-the-art integration technology that complements the SAP Business One API offering (SDK) and solves message-based integration issues around SAP Business One.


How will SAP Business One Subsidiary Integration help my business?


  • Ability to interface seamlessly and rapidly with an SAP environment
  • Ability to take advantage of the ongoing development of SAP Business One, SAP NetWeaver, SAP Business Intelligence and SAP Business Suite components
  • SAP’s ability to pre-develop integration content for out-of-the-box usage, so that implementation costs and TCO will be reduced dramatically
