Anonymous UserHead of Product Operations Planning at a pharma/biotech company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The accounting part and the procurement part are most valuable. It is a very good system with workflows and notifications."
"SAP has provided a much more integrated platform for managing our manufacturing business."
"This is a robust and feature-rich solution."
"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."
"The most valuable features are that it's very customizable and it's flexible."
"It is the best solution in the class of ERP products."
"It provides great visibility into the details of enterprise resource planning."
"The system can be integrated with other SAP functionalities - such as finance, production, sales, marketing, HR, et cetera, and can also be customized to become a model that's specifically designed for my business. That's the solution's most valuable aspect."
"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."
"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."
"The solution is quite expensive. They need to work on the pricing to make it more reasonable."
"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."
"This is a costly product."
"There are licensing costs."
"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 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."
"SAP ERP is expensive."
