Air-conditioning and commercial refrigeration services specialist, Basic Blue Trading, has contracted SAP Business One solutions provider 4most to supply, implement, commission and support an accounting and ERP software solution at its Pretoria operation in Hermanstad.

Basic Blue Trading provides air-conditioning and refrigeration systems and solutions as a sub-contractor on major projects in the civil and mechanical engineering fields, providing air-conditioning and refrigeration, cold and freezer room maintenance and repairs, indoor air quality control, chiller plant maintenance and the cleaning and decontamination of ducts.
The SAP Business One solution from 4most will include financials, general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, cashbook, purchasing, sales inventory and a service module that will enable Basic Blue Trading to fully track client contracts and installations.
“The SAP Business One solution will allow Basic Blue Trading to store and easily retrieve comprehensive information on their client installations and the servicing and maintenance of those installations with information leading to rapid decision-making and response,” says Leon Jacobs of 4most corporate sales.
“Workflow approval procedures and alerts are an important feature of the installation and our solution will also provide CRM functionality within the SAP Business One integration with MS Office,” he adds.
The 4most solution will provide a real time system with full ERP functionality. At this stage the implementation is confined to the Pretoria operation but the intention is to extend the SAP solution to Basic Blue Trading's Durban and Polokwane branches, and to the sales departments in due course. The software installation is scheduled to go live at the end of July.
