What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the user experience, where you can create your own queries, it sends you alerts, and it's very flexible. The interface is very user-friendly. As long as you apply logic, it is easy to do the technical stuff. It… more »

What needs improvement?

I would like to see the HR features enhanced with respect to localization for South Africa and other countries. They have perhaps 12 localizations but I think that for countries like South Africa, where the payroll system is unique, they… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is for mid-market businesses, where it is cheaper than Oracle Cloud, EBS, or SAP. It is very much on part with Dynamics, although Dynamics can become quite pricey in the end. The cost of licensing depends on the modules that… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing costs for E-business Suite depends upon what modules you're using, the number of users, core database components and things like that. I believe we pay around USD $100,000 annually… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The previous company that I worked for had its own ERP. The switch to Oracle was made because it's a bigger brand with a wide array of products. Oracle is into database within application and it has a… more »

What other advice do I have?

For someone who has never used Oracle, I would tell them that it's not a user-friendly application, so it takes time to get your head around it. On top of that, Oracle is mostly done in Linux and Unix… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I briefly thought about evaluation other options, but it didn't happen because I'd already had some experience with Oracle.
