Pros
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.We have managed to consolidate our payroll for all India operations on this platform.Customers can create custom infotypes to store any custom data points.

Cons
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.System usability is a challenge.It needs a lot of end user training as it is not intuitive at all.

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.
