The GUI needs to be enhanced to be in line with the latest and complete version of the solution.There should be more connectivity with other systems.LMS, Learning Management Systems, needs improvement because there were some stability problems.They should improve the reports.Some of the screens aren't that user-friendly, older employees especially have a hard time with it. They have some problems with it.We have many interruptions and disconnection points into processes, which is why we are looking to another solution. We are not so happy with the system.

Pricing and Cost Advice
In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.Licensing is pretty complex. SAP does not have a straight forward way of licensing, and it differs from client to client.The terms on which you buy licenses might change due to the way they license in a particular product.For implementation, SAP offers little support unless you buy SAP Safeguarding from SAP Consulting.Be careful and guard against future changes in licensing.

The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users.
