We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"You can track everything from beginning to end quite easily."
"The solution offers integrations with other software as well. We have integration with Microsoft Office where we can do Word and Excel, etc."
"The stability was reliable."
"Responsive, comprehensive and optimized solution."
"It is a very powerful, highly customizable tool."
"In terms of its most valuable feature, I would say the finance module."
"The performance of the solution is excellent."
"The processes have been reduced from almost 10 steps to four or five steps. It's really been simplified."
"From a technology standpoint, the theory and analytics are fascinating."
"The key modules that I find most valuable are material management (MM), financial accounting and controlling (FICO), and human resources (HR)."
"The scalability is excellent, especially on cloud deployment models."
"The purchase order and processing aspects of the solution should be improved."
"With payroll, the payroll that they have offers US or Canadian tax. However, here, our tax payments are different from the US and Canada. It is very difficult to put in our tax tables. We need some customization. It should be readily available for any country to use according to their tax implications. The system should know different types of tax regimes around the world so that it can accommodate. It's a little bit rigid on that."
"This is now a legacy product, so they're phasing it out over time."
"Lacking in some customizations."
"It requires a lot of planning to implement the product correctly."
"The common issues being raised right now by the end users are mostly related to the usability."
"The cost of the solution is quite high. It needs to be adjusted."
"The theory-side of the solution needs to be improved."
"Every year, when a new version is released, it comes with a very thick booklet of 300 or 400 pages and it is a little difficult to comprehend."
"The two things that need to be improved are price and customization."
"Technical support has been declining. They aren't as responsive as they used to be."
"For us, in our local currency, it costs us around 5 million Botswanan Pulas a year. It's quite a lot of money."
"It is an expensive solution."
"The price of this product is an issue for some customers."
"I have found the price of the solution is on the medium to the expensive side of the scale. There is a license for this solution and there are additional maintenance fees."
"The solution is expensive."
"We're not sure yet. I think it was six figures a year, over 100,000. It has straight-up licensing fees."
"Licensing works on a subscription model for the cloud version and it's a one-time fee for the on-premises version."
