SAP’s add-on for Intercompany becomes compatible with Multiple Branches function

Dear SAP Business One Customers, Consultants, Partners, and interested parties,

I’m pleased to announce the ’marriage’ of two major functionalities for SAP Business One:
SAP’s add-on for intercompany becomes compatible with multiple branches function.

Required is PL26 of the intercompany integration solution (available since May 9 2018) or higher versions in conjunction with SAP Business One 9.2 PL10 or 9.3 PL01-PL04 and higher versions.

With multiple branches solution, users can work across branches on one company database. With Intercompany Solution, users can work with different SAP Business One databases, located on same server or at multiple servers.

The option to operate both in parallel extends the possibilities of SAP Business One immensely:

  • Enterprises with multiple legal entities may want to use multiple branches solution and intercompany integration solution together to handle various business scenarios such as:
    • Using Intercompany solution to integrate subsidiaries in different geographies and using multiple branches solution to handle different business units in one of the subsidiary companies.
    • Using multiple branches solution and integrating subsidiaries in different geographies using Intercompany Solution.
  • Customers who already use multiple branches for their business units and additionally want to integrate legal units, subsidiaries, or separate SAP Business One company databases, can now extend their software with SAP’s successful add-on for intercompany.

In addition to the matchless capabilities of both functions combined, through the interoperability of both functionalities it is at the initial implementation finally no either/or decision anymore, thus the overall flexibility increases enormously.

For our customers, the benefits, flexibility, and added value of our solution increase significantly.
Our partners benefit from another important competitive advantage and unique selling point of our SMB ERP solution.

Update December 2018: There are new Videos available: Intercompany Integration Solution and Multiple Branches – Setup and Cost Allocation

The videos show how to combine Multiple Branches with the Intercompany integration solution and also how to Setup Multiple Branches and how to allocate Costs. This cost allocation feature is available since PL30, see SAP Note 2719279Allocation enhancement for multi branch enabled companies

Best regards, Peter

      Am I able to do Intercompany trade transaction/Centralized payment between the branches if I have those branches in only one database?

      Omar, that's not in scope. With Intercompany Solution, users can work with different SAP Business One databases, located on the same server or on multiple servers.
