We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The main reason for the ERP project was to bring together our fourteen sites, which had until then worked in separate silos."
"The workflow of the solution is very good."
"The product is quite flexible."
"One of our favorite features is the "Info-Zone", which provides operational intelligence in flight and in context to guide both business users and support teams to productivity."
"The solution overall is very versatile and flexible, especially compared to other products."
"Some of the strengths are Enterprise Management Solutions and the series of Management solutions which is number one in Gartner's report and has been for the last five years."
"The accounting part and the procurement part are most valuable. It is a very good system with workflows and notifications."
"The CRM was shaky and although this improves in Apps 10, there is room for improvement."
"Technical support could be improved."
"The user interface can be improved. When you're clicking through the screens, there are some icons or symbols that really need updating and would be more useful and noticeable if they are aesthetically pleasing."
"We would like to see AI-driven CSI functions built into the tool that would allow us to quickly tie our improvement goals to metrics and activities, so Assyst will suggest the next steps to help us get closer to our goals."
"It would be ideal if, in the future, the product could incorporate IoT and blockchain elements. We'd like to explore more of these types of features going forward."
"There are certain digital features that need to be incorporated, such as IOP."
"Its implementation process is kind of complicated. If the person implementing it doesn't know what he is doing, the system can have many issues. Sage X3 is just an accounting system. As compared to Oracle E-Business Suite, it does not cover a lot of functionality. It doesn't have the payroll, lease management, and HR modules. Oracle E-Business Suite is better than Sage X3."
"Ask for all-inclusive pricing, as they are pretty flexible if you ask for custom models."
"Pricing is an area that could be improved. They could be more competitive."
"It is very cheap. There are no additional charges, but the problem is that you have to acquire an additional supporting system such as a budgeting system. You will have to implement the integration and maintain two systems. So, you need to pay for the license of that budgeting system and this one. You also need to pay the license for the payroll and integration. There are all these integrations that you have to pay for."
