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

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

Cons
"On the personnel administration side, it's very difficult to do custom development.""It takes a long time to apply an update patch to the system.""It is a bit tedious and manual to work with.""The organizational structure visualization could be improved in future releases. The solution has a very poor interface.""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 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 now does the most innovation for the cloud solution and less innovation for the on-premises client.""This solution needs to be more configurable and user-friendly."

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.""You pay per license. There not any costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""SAP is extremely expensive. The integration costs and customization costs are also a lot.""SAP is expensive, but if you're using the product, then the expensive product becomes inexpensive. Considering its performance and features, I find it quite reasonable."
