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

Pros
"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."

"The Financial Accounting module, in general, is quite good. It is quite simple but powerful. Similarly, the Manufacturing functionality, including a multiple level bill of materials, is also quite useful."

Cons
"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."

"SYSPRO at the moment is lacking on the project side. There's a module called Projects and Contracts, and it's a poorly designed module. One of my clients is a project-based organization, and they're finding it extremely difficult to manage their business using SYSPRO, to the point that they're looking at alternative solutions. The Projects and Contracts module is not a very useful tool. It does project accounting reasonably well, but in terms of putting in proper structures, like a work breakdown structure and so forth, it's actually quite poor. Their design or their architecture for the Projects module isn't good enough. They need to redesign it and redevelop it. They have made improvements. However, the problem is that if you're building on a bad foundation, then your building isn't going to be very strong. That's principally their problem. Any heavy equipment company would have a requirement to keep their equipment available for production. In that sense, SYSPRO has no maintenance management functionality. There's also no functionality for field services management. These two functionalities are critical for places like mines or for heavy equipment manufacturers who service the aftermarket and so forth. From a product perspective, this obviously isn't a good place to be because they are sort of taking themselves out of the market for quite a number of industries. They are constrained to manufacturing and distribution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

Overview
SAP ERP addresses the core business software requirements of midsize and large organizations in all industries and sectors. SAP ERP includes four individual solutions that support key areas of enterprise resource planning: human capital management, financials, operations, corporate services.
SYSPRO enterprise resource planning (ERP) software supports the control, integration and synchronization of all aspects of the manufacturing process and accommodates both short and long production runs in several manufacturing environments. This single source solutionis compatible with computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS software), and it features several quality control measures. Most notable is the lot traceability function, which tracks raw materials through their entire life cycle, beginning with their receipt, manufacture and assembly, and moving on to their inspection, stocking and distribution. It also keeps track of expiration dates and certifications of quality. Another valuable feature of this mining industry software is the inventory management component, which accurately forecasts inventories by analyzing sales history and other factors. Several companies have implemented this software to improve their business operations, including U.S. Salt. They found SYSPRO's focus on the client/server environment and the solution's scalabilty as two reasons to implement this software. The software's combination of manufacturing, distribution and financial functions was enough to convince U.S. Salt that this was the right software for their company. The result for U.S. Salt was highly efficient operations that maintain inventory levels for on-demand shipments within three to five days. U.S. Salt also cited the usability of the software as a benefit. Their employees could easily use it and even personalize it for their work stations. SYSPRO is a global leader in ERP business software. With 35 years of experience in the industry, SYSPRO has gained the trust of more than 15,000 customers and has partnered with 1,500 ERP channels in 60 countries. SYSPRO has a 98 percent customer retention rate.
