"The technical support is very good."

"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."
"It is a comprehensive and robust solution. It can provide lots of functional features."
"We're definitely looking at a new system because everything in this product needs improving."
"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.

"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 pricing is reasonable."
"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."
"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."
