Cons
"The CRM was shaky and although this improves in Apps 10, there is room for improvement.""The user interface can be improved.

"It needs to incorporate the new features from the SAP S/4HANA release, such as, utilizing data processes, which is quite nice.""This solution could be made more user-friendly for development teams.""The user interface needs to be improved.""The system is very big. It is not exactly user-friendly, due to the fact that it's so massive and complex.""The version that we are using lacks in reporting. The reporting feature needs to be constructed more in this product. There can be better scope for mobility. They could include the technical development of reports instead of depending completely on programming. The programming method needs to be easy.""SAP ERP needs to be more innovative when it comes to areas like mobility and the internet.""The product does not update budgeting based on exchange rates which is important for BPM.""It is very expensive to customize to meet compliance with regulations in some countries."
