The service you perform for your customers can be based on particular items, serial numbers, item groups, or generally provided in the customer level. Using the Service module in SAP Business One, you can also get robust reports with regards to open service calls, resolution time, and more. This allows you to analyze and evaluate the service level and service representatives in your company.

Three key components make up the SAP Business One Service module.  They are:

  1.     Service Contract – defining what type of service a customer is entitled to
  2.     Customer Equipment Card – defining the equipment to be serviced
  3.     Service Call – defining the actual service itself

Service Contracts in SAP Business One

You can create a regular support or warranty contracts for items or services sold to a customer.  The contract maintains the start and end dates, as well as specific terms of the contract, such as guaranteed response or resolution times.  Service coverage defines whether your contract covers parts, labor, travel or any combination of these expenses along with the days and hours of service coverage.

When you set up the item master link the item to a warranty template and, SAP Business One will AUTOMATICALLY generate a service contract for each item sold upon A/R invoice.

It also lists service contracts assigned to the item.  When you set up the item master as an item using serial numbers, SAP B1 will AUTOMATICALLY generate an equipment card for each item sold upon A/R invoice.
