B1 Solutions Declares BPA Platform an 'Easy Sell' for eCommerce, EDI and Warehouse Integration
Distribution, fashion and manufacturing businesses benefit from BPA Platform for SAP integration and automation
"BPA Platform is a tool that sits in the middle and enables our customers to easily integrate all their business systems with SAP Business One. I think it's fair to say it's become a more regular part of the kitbag and become part of our core offering now. It is leading to new opportunities and helping to secure new contracts. We have a couple of prospects that we hope to sign up fairly soon, and BPA Platform is central to those projects," explained Ian Forsyth, Managing Director, B1 Solutions.
With many of its customers hailing from the fashion industry, it's no surprise that the majority of the projects B1 Solutions' customers are using BP Platform for is warehouse or eCommerce integration. However, it is only recently that many have recognised the value of business process automation.
"Personally, I've had an interest in BPA Platform for a long time, it's just that not many of our customers really believed it was going to help them. Fashion businesses, traditionally, are quite conservative when it comes to technology and they didn't really see the benefit of business process automation. However, the recent COVID pandemic has changed that attitude a lot. They soon realised that it's a lot cheaper than keeping people on crunching numbers."

"Personally, I love the product. It's such an easy tool to use. Our staff love it too. Prior to BPA Platform we'd have to write some code to complete these projects, so not having to bespoke anything is brilliant. We just don't have to get into that side of things.Prospects can now come to us requesting integration between, for example, an EDI system, their website and warehouse software, and it's not a problem for us. We can easily say that we've got a tool that will do it for them. It makes it an easy sell because I know BPA Platform can do anything that they want it to do," said Forsyth.
