Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"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."

Cons
"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."

More SAP Business One Cons »

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"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.""The price of the solution is reasonable but some modules can be expensive. When comparing SAP S4HANA to other solutions, such as Oracle, it is not expensive.""The price of the solution is expensive."

Overview

The SAP Business One application offers a way to manage your entire business – from accounting and financials, purchasing, inventory, sales and customer relationships, and project management, to operations and human resources. SAP Business One helps you to streamline processes, gain a greater insight into your business, so that you can act fast and make decisions based on real time information, to help you drive profitable growth.

SAP S/4HANA stands for SAP Suite 4 HANA. It is a next-generation integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that is designed for businesses of all sizes, in all industries, that require deep and broad functionality combined with a high degree of flexibility. SAP S/4HANA was launched in 2015 and been adopted by more than 3,200 customers over a period of sixteen months. SAP S/4HANA is materially different from anything SAP has done before and represents the company’s biggest innovation since SAP R/3.

SAP S/4HANA is intended to provide a digital core for an organization. It is fully architected for the most advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA, and is designed on the most modern design principles with the SAP Fiori user experience to create a personalized and simple feel on users’ device of choice (tablet, laptop, mobile). SAP S/4HANA aims to simplify an organizations’ system landscape and reduce total cost of ownership by shrinking the data footprint while at the same time improving productivity levels in the form of higher throughput. S/4HANA can be deployed either on premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid combination for quick time-to-value. Timelines for cloud deployments average around six months.

SAP S/4HANA is designed to drive business innovation by connecting people, devices, and business networks in real time to support the development of new business models. It will also help accelerate the adoption of, and connection to, the Internet of Things and Big Data. SAP S/4HANA can analyze big data at unprecedented speed allowing users to access real-time information from anywhere, any way they’d like and thus help managers make truly insightful decisions. The simplified data model allows customers to reimagine their IT, helping to drive lower costs and deliver IT efficiency. This, coupled with the SAP S/4HANA prediction and simulation capabilities allow it to anticipate the impact of business outcomes. By doing all the above, SAP S/4HANA aims to provide ultimate sophistication in the simplest possible manner.
