Subscription-based Hosting (SBH) allows organizations access to an SAP A1 that is hosted and managed by a select SAP partner for a flat subscription fee, thus minimizing up-front costs and ongoing in-house IT requirements. It also leverages IT management expertise delivered by SAP partners, allowing organizations to take advantage of the enterprise resource management functionality of SAP A1 without being distracted by IT issues. Additionally, it eliminates the capital outlay traditionally required to purchase a software license, allowing organizations access to SAP A1 at a much lower up-front cost.

On the other hand, Business One Starter Package provides a limited-scope version of the industry-proven SAP Business One application, and is the solution is for companies that need more than standard accounting software but for whom the full SAP Business One might be too powerful. It also delivers functionality that helps manage accounting and financials, sales and customers, purchasing and operations, inventory and distribution, and reporting and administration.

“SAP empowers people and organizations to work together more efficiently and use business insight more effectively to stay ahead of the competition,” says Jennie S. Ligones, SAP Philippines Country Manager. “We do this by extending the availability of software across on-premise installations, on-demand deployments and mobile devices.

We believe that the power of our people, products, and partners unleashes growth and creates significant new value for our customers, SAP, and ultimately, entire industries and the economy at large.”
