Ability to Plan and Integrate to External Systems Quicker Provide ROI

Phoenix Business, Inc. (Phoenix) is proud to announce that they’ve partnered with New Directions Behavioral Health to implement SAP’s Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System, SAP Business ByDesign, and SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning, taking a leap forward in SaaS technology.

New Directions had been utilizing Microsoft Dynamics SL, an older on-premise client server system. This system was difficult to integrate with newer Cloud solutions and many processes still had to be handled manually through Excel. It also couldn’t provide forecasting, budgeting, or real-time reporting.

New Directions evaluated five potential solutions, including Dynamics 365, NetSuite, and Work Day. After extensive analysis of solutions, it was ultimately decided that SAP Business ByDesign & SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning offered the best overall solution, and that Phoenix Business, Inc. was the right partner to deliver and support the solution.

SAP Business ByDesign ERP & SAP Analytics Cloud for Planning provided New Directions a platform to address their key requirements: GL, AP, AR,  Fixed Assets, Real-Time Analytics, Forecasting, and Budgeting. Additionally, the ERP’s open architecture allowed them to easily integrate other internal systems.

The growth of SaaS technology has been credited for the significant availability of useful Cloud products in the enterprise IT market segment. With the recent pandemic forcing companies to transition to more of a virtual work environment, Cloud solutions have become even more important.

Hanif Sarangi, President of Phoenix, said of this project: “We are proud to have served as trusted advisors to New Directions on this project. With SAP Business ByDesign & Analytics Cloud, New Directions will enjoy significant increases in efficiency and ROI from SAP’s robust functionality.”
