SAP Cloud model
The scalability of the solution has now been proven in practice. Currently, Veneta.com has more than 140 employees. The number of SAP Business One users increased from seven to more than twenty over the past two years. For even greater scalability, Veneta.com embraced SAP's cloud model in 2018, exchanging on-premise licenses for licenses in the cloud. "We can't always accurately predict the need," Van der Burgt explains. "In the cloud, we can very easily scale up the number of users, but also scale it back down."
Van der Burgt is also already thinking about the next steps with Veneta.com. For example, there are plans to roll out the concept to countries outside the Benelux. Deviations that the company will have to deal with then – such as different legislation and different VAT regimes – can, he says, be handled smoothly in SAP Business One, which has various localizations. “Thanks to our choice eight years ago, we are not getting stuck today.”
