We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The document search feature is very good."
"The ability to link documents to accounts, partners and events via the Golden/Yellow Arrow feature is very useful."
"Less complicated than other similar solutions."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is Financial Management."
"This is the most efficient ERP that is in the market right now."
"The product seems to be quite stable."
"Its usability is the most valuable. It is very intuitive and user-friendly. In terms of functionality, it has all the basic functionalities for ERP, such as CRM, sales, and manufacturing. These are the functionalities that we typically use for all SMEs. In terms of localization, SAP Business One is the best. It has got localization across all countries, which is an advantage. No other solution has such localization."
"It offers users a rather simple interface."
"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."
"It is a comprehensive and robust solution. It can provide lots of functional features."
"The user interface could be improved with drag-and-drop functionality that it currently lacks."
"There are only a few standard reports available and if you want more then they either have to be downloaded or built."
"Lacks ability to integrate with other tools."
"There is no dependency, the integration between the other applications."
"In the next release, I would like to see the inclusion of cloud features."
"It would be ideal if the reporting and dashboards were improved upon."
"There are possibilities to extend its functionality. Things such as Quality Management System (QMS) and Payroll are currently not a part of the product. These things are needed."
"In terms of business processes, the production could use improvement."
"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."
"In general, a user should attend training before they can use this platform. There's definitely a learning curve. As a new user or employee, there may be some difficulty with onboarding."
"Business One is reasonable considering the functionality."
"In terms of price, it's fair, but the problem is with AMC."
"Its price is reasonable. People are able to spend that much."
"Its licensing model is good. There is a one-off payment for the software license, and after that, you only need to pay the annual maintenance fee. Compared to other cloud-based systems, this cost model is quite reasonable for SMEs."
"We pay annually. It is around 800 a month."
"We feel that the licensing fees are a bit on the higher side."
"We compared the Microsoft solution with Oracle NetSuite, as they have a price decrease. It is, however, not that much cheaper, and the price is comparable to SAP."
"Its price is reasonable. We have about 200 licenses. We have to pay every year for the license."
"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."
