Quotes From Members

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

Pros
The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM).HCM is a very important module that each organization should want to use. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources.The user interface is the solution's most valuable feature. It makes it easy for us to use.The stability of the solution is good.All of the core processes are very valuable aspects of the solution. These include personnel, administration, organizational structure, and payroll.The master data where most of the reports were run from was the most valuable. We were quite satisfied with this module.The most valuable feature, in my view, is the level of exceptions or error messages that come back when something goes wrong.The integration between the different models like personnel administration, work management, payroll, and time management are the most valuable and key features.

Cons
This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly.SAP now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.The implementation of the solution can be a bit difficult. They should make it easier. If it could be as simple as the SuccessFactors implementation that would be ideal.SAP is not ready to sell the license on time and delays the progress of projects. It's better to work with a competitor like Oracle. Those that are selling the product just go through powerpoints and don't have the knowledge necessary to sell. They can't answer any questions.The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.

Analytics is one area where this system really needs a large improvement because currently, it has only basic reporting features.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.In my view, this product is a waste of money for SMB because there are much better products available and licensing is an issue.
