‘Sapphire Accounting’ is the moniker given to the SAP product suite that has been extensively configured to make it more accessible to mid-market companies who operate on a tight budget.
The template removes the need for extensive customisation, reducing cost and saving time over a more traditional implementation.
Ralph Bolton, technical director of Sapphire Systems, the author of Sapphire Accounting, said: ‘The launch of Sapphire Accounting offers companies a unique opportunity to benefit from a scalable enterprise planning solution at a very affordable price. To date, we have spent in excess of 3,000 man hours developing Sapphire Accounting and this enables our clients, at no additional cost to themselves, to benefit from a massive investment of some £300,000 in upfront customisation and development work.’
