Cons
"The cost of data storage is an issue once the company grows.""I would like to have integration with Google.""The solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors.""They need an easy way of getting details and then adding to it and then being able to do it in a more simplified way""The marketing automation needs improvement.""Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more.""If you have resellers or distributors, you just need to figure out a way to set up the system in the backend. Since every company is different, it takes a little bit of time to figure that out.""The initial setup is rather complex."

We need to make sure our ERP solutions aren't exposed to the outside world. Our teams really struggle with this.""They are still developing this product. It does not really have 100% of the necessary features available to properly service business clients""In the next release, I would like to see improvements with the price and the licensing.""The solution requires more flexibility overall."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is an expensive program.""The licensing is per user per month, which we took out a contract on a long time back. It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get."

More Salesforce Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Licensing costs for this solution are based on the number of users and the bandwidth.""SAP's pricing is usually high compared to the competition. But this is also justified because they hold their products and services to quite high standards.""The pricing can be negotiated."
