Senior Manager at a logistics company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Jan 16 2018

What is most valuable?

FICO, especially newGL. It solves a lot of manual consolidation issues. Other than that, interco posting and cost management are a lot better compared to Oracle or Sage.

How has it helped my organization?

Strong financials for project/logistics integration and most of the functionalities, like interco posting and MM-SD consolidation, work out-of-the-box. Most of the integrations work out-of-the-box. The only thing that you need to spend on ABAP is reports. There is hardly any customization required for SAP, if you implement it correctly.

What needs improvement?

The UI: To train one user on SAP ECC takes at least two weeks. Though once familiarized, people can remember shortcuts and t-code for the change management is still high. Thanks to the vast majority of large organizations using SAP, the user adaption is a lot less if users come from SAP/GUI environments.

What is SAP Business Suite?

SAP Business Suite software comprises a set of fully integrated applications such as SAP ERP, SAP CRM, SAP SCM, and SAP SRM that enable enterprises to run their core business operations. It provides end-to-end process support for areas such as customer engagement, finance, human resources, manufacturing, procurement, logistics, and IT management. With SAP HANA, SAP offers full in-memory platform in the cloud.
