06 Jun Sage X3 vs SAP B1 (Business One) ERP Comparison (2021)
While comparing Sage X3 vs SAP B1, It is no secret that Sage X3 is getting a lot of attention lately. Many users of comparable ERP platforms – such as SAP Business One, want to know how good Sage X3 really is. Up until this point, Sage has never had a product that challenges SAP B1’s feature set. Sage X3 promises a much more robust feature set than their long-existing offerings of Sage 100 and Sage 300. Versus SAP B1, Sage X3 is a far more comparable product than 100 or 300. Here is an in-depth whitepaper for Sage X3 Vs. SAP B1.
Sage X3 vs SAP B1 – The Brand
Many people outside of Europe are actually much more familiar with SAP than they are with Sage. SAP and Sage are the second and third largest suppliers of ERP software on the market respectively, so they are close (some might say fierce) competitors versus one another.
Both Sage and SAP are making a push towards cloud offerings. This is where we really see both companies making technological leaps, although we see more cloud users of X3. Both platforms are able to run off Amazon Web Services (AWS). Sage X3 has a true, multi-tenant cloud offering. SAP Business One’s cloud offering is basically a remotely hosted version of the same product, so it is still your own server and not necessarily “true cloud”.
One clue suggesting that Sage X3 is more of a “true-cloud” offering is browser support. Sage X3 cloud supports all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) whereas SAP Business One is sometimes only served through a web browser using connectivity tools like AccessNow.
Feature Comparison: Sage X3 vs SAP Business One
You would expect any ERP tool in the upper tier of the market to be able to handle all day-to-day financial operations. Both platforms execute general ledger, AR / AP, and payroll. One of the biggest differences between Sage X3 vs. SAP B1 is how they handle advanced accounting functionalities.
