We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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. It will help any organization to calculate and control the cost of their human resources."
"The most valuable feature is Organizational Management (OM)."
"We have fewer systems, less manual data entry, and less processing."
"Performance and good usability are the two most valuable features of this solution."
"The solution is extremely stable."
"It's actually a cloud-native solution and based on the community for development. It is a very good open architecture and able to interconnect with other systems. And it is very stable and very fast in terms of response."
"This product is leaps and bounds above the competition. Part of the reason is that it is built with modern technology. It has no legacy coding in it at all."
"The user interface is good and very easy to use."
"The platform itself is very robust and I generally like the reporting and analytics capability."
"It's intuitive, a very usable tool and it's easy to find the data you're looking for."
"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."
"There is a lot of complexity in the configuration of this solution."
"It has missing functionalities. Specific countries, like Germany, didn't have the option to do payroll. Now we need to look for another product for HR."
"Setting up reports can be a bit tricky."
"Reporting systems should be improved. If you want to report it on paper, if you want something more BI oriented, more high level predictive or more data-driven, it should be improved."
"It is good that much of the development is based on community input but often that can lead to details being ignored and small, nagging issues are ignored."
"The security console should be made less complex."
"The UI, UX (user experience) is very bad. It is not very interactive."
"It's possible that the way things are integrated could be improved"
"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."
"Workday is an expensive solution."
"You have the license fee per module, and then you have a kind of annual training fee, which is a kind of add-on. I wouldn't say it is exhaustive; it is minor. Licensing is pretty transparent for most of the part."
"The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year."
"Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
