Businesses running SAP Business One that also utilize iPhones or iPads have a ton of power at their fingertips.  SAP is taking mobility very seriously, and has put some significant functionality behind their app for SAP Business One customers.

Let's take a look back....The mobile app for SAP Business One used to be reserved for senior managers looking to perform alerts and approvals while on the road, which is nice, but by no means could you consider it to enable full work day tasks.

Fast forward to SAP Business One mobility 1.11, available for companies running SAP Business One 8.82 and greater and the functions available are even more powerful for senior managers, and bring mobile functionality for companies that want to empower outside sales representatives and field service technicians.  We'll run down all the tasks the SAP Business One mobile app is capable of, and what version of SAP Business One you have be running in order to take advantage of them.
