We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"provides all modules, supply chain, HR - it's good for management."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the Infor GL tool that allows us to do our application support and development."
"It is an integrated application, and it has been working really well. Earlier, there were different companies for different applications for manufacturing, finance controlling, logistics, and quality. It probably was the first fully integrated application. Whenever somebody is entering any data, for example, invoice data or ordering data, everyone with a right to see this data can see it in the system."
"This product is very scalable and easy to expand."
"The architecture of the solution overall is great. It's great for development, testing, and production. I've worked with solutions where the architecture wasn't as strong and it was a disaster."
"The transactional integration of operations is the best-recommended feature of this product. It provides integration of all operational modules."
"Their tech support is always good."
"It provides great visibility into the details of enterprise resource planning."
"This is a robust and feature-rich solution."
"The solution is quite scalable."
"The implementation could be simplified, it's complex."
"The solution is stable but not agile."
"It is a little difficult to use."
"It would also help if it were more open, more flexible, with more standard products."
"ERP could use better integration with other systems."
"One thing that is lacking in ERP is a good user interface. It is currently very clumsy and complex. Another thing is that reporting capability of SAP ERP is customizable, but it is not very good. Its development time is also very high if you require specialized technical services. If you want to do any changes to the report or develop a new report, you need people with specialized skills. Business processes are very straightforward and standardized as per the industry standards. However, the way it works is a bit complex, and you need to know a lot of things. There are different things that can be complex for a general user. A lot of information is being provided in ERP. A general user doesn't require all this information, and it creates a lot of confusion. Its learning curve is very high."
"Its user interface should be improved."
"The system is very big. It is not exactly user-friendly, due to the fact that it's so massive and complex."
"Technical support could be better."
"It was not designed to service all industries."
"This is a costly product."
"There are licensing costs."
"SAP is a bit on the costly side, but they also provide support and other things. We are paying for licenses and the use of the cloud."
"When you have a solution that is stable, reliable, and has a high performance as this solution, the price is going to be expensive. However, when you evaluate the service you are paying for the cost is quite reasonable for this solution."
"Some components are available at an additional cost, depending on the type of contract that you have."
"The licensing costs are slightly on the higher side. They need to make it more competitive."
"SAP ERP is expensive."
"We pay annually for the use of this solution."
