Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It was an okay solution when we delivered hardware and we had to do maintenance.""Dynamics AX provides a lot of functionality.""If anyone is familiar with Microsoft products then they can handle it easily.""I like that it's a complete ERP solution from production level to branch level.""It is stable, suitable for businesses, and covers all business needs.""The relation between CRM and Sales, that's the main strength of this ERP."

"EBS has lots of application families and lots of features. It is modular in deployment and flexible enough to let the customer increase the built-in capabilities and enable new applications when needed. These are very important things at hand in case there will be a need to expand the product capabilities and/or implement new projects.""Great finance modules and customization.""The order management is excellent.""The solution has other core processes that can be implemented with customers according to their needs.""Their great technical support is one of the most valuable features.""The most valuable feature is its flexibility.""As we have been using this for the past nine years we have had the opportunity to explore the product. Really everything has worked well and all the modules are very good.""It can be an essential solution for those who can not just push to the cloud because they have critical data restrictions."

Cons
"It is being decommissioned.""The product is standardised across industries so it is not a good fit for all types of sectors.""There should be the capability for users to enhance the application by using a low-code or no-code product from the Microsoft family.""There are so many errors.""There is no Arabic interface in Microsoft Business Central, which is a big weak point.""They should include some modules related to solving customer problems or resolving support tickets from our customers — like a help desk for ERPs."

"Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing.""Not user friendly.""I would say the integration needs improvement. Oracle needs to work on the integration layer to make the solution much more robust and modern.""It's difficult for some customers to understand in the beginning. A user really has to understand the processes.""It should be made a little bit more user friendly. When I complete my implementation and hand it over to the clients or the person who will operate it on a day-to-day basis, they find it a little bit difficult because they are not from a highly qualified IT background. I want Oracle to make it a little bit more user friendly.""The reporting needs to be improved.""Oracle is not keeping up on development of the on-premises version of this product as they are concentrating on cloud solutions.""If you get away from the financials core of the product, it is not so good at handling peripherals."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is expensive.""It's too expensive for customers to take this on themselves. As partners, we will buy this on behalf of the customers and then charge this value for each project.""It is $180 to $200 per user per month with a minimum of 20 users, which makes selling the product a bit difficult.""I don't know how much this solution costs off the top of my head, but I know that the cloud and SaaS solutions are cheaper."

"In order to minimize the implementation and consultancy costs, business lines should have proper definitions. They need to have a proper way of retrieving their data, which should be structured well.""Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans.""USD $100,000 annually.""Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution.""This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP.""The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year.""Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance.""At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."

I think Panorama Consulting Group publishes some of their ERP shootouts comparing SAP/Oracle/Microsoft with Infor thrown in as a bonus. 


Our firm is more of a boutique operation that compares internal company requirements then picks software known for its propensity to work well in those industries/environments. But if you get to the stage where you need some guidance on who some of the top partners and resources are for those software packages, hit us up.
