Please get all you concerns addressed before the purchase is made. Dot the i's and cross the t's

Pros

Functionality: Has many options available to ease the work flow process. Best feature is the relationship map.

Cons

Finding answers to problems if any. You are old on the functionality but after purchase, you discover every question relating to basic needs of the software turns to an additional cost

Pros

The flexibility to modify the product/modules without having to pay a programmer. End User capabilities are good.

Cons

The support structure is through a reseller, so if you have questions/issues there can be a delay in getting in contact directly with the software developer. We have a great reseller (now) so that's not a problem but it is a business model that can be challenging.

I would not recommend this product for manufacturing, make-to-order processes

Pros

Most basic ERP modules are included. The software will handle BOM to an extent as well as job costing.

Cons

It is not really a manufacturing ERP system but it is more suited for retail businesses. In the vendor due diligence process, they were very slow.

I have to use the accounting module of SAP. However, this system is a very dynamic ERP software that can gather data from various areas of your business. This allows for easy access to information in terms of sales, customers service quality and many others.

Pros

It can handle a large amount of data, information can be access with ease and it can capture both quantitative and qualitative information.

Cons

It can be expensive to implement, therefore look at the cost benefits analysis. Also, this is a software for mostly medium to large firms

Advice to Others

Engage the services of a professional to have the system implement and proper training for your staff.

SAP is a known brand when it comes to ERP software's, but it has couple of issues when you implement it. It is a very high maintenance software and you are always dependent upon the technology consultants to do your job. The system has multiple functionalities but on the same end it makes very complicated for the new users, you need to spend allot of money if you want to get something altered.

Advice to Others

Buying it is a Risk, but make sure you do a proper expectation setting with your consultants, they dupe you for money for every small thing.

SAP as an outplant user

Customer Support

Value for Money

I am using SAP for several of our customers to do transactions directly in their systems. SAP is relatively easy to learn and has a lot of features and options for customization. Each of our customers have a different way of processing the same type of transaction so for an outplant user it can end up being a lot to keep track off.
There is a lot of traceability so finding and correcting issues is easy and takes minimal research.

Pros

Highly customizable, many features, works for all areas of the company, fully customizable reporting options.

Cons

Many steps to each transaction, will almost always need to be customized.

Advice to Others

SAP is good for large corporations and plants. I would not recommend it for smaller companies that needs more flexibility and short turn around times.

Cons

Interface needs some improvement.

SAP One for business is what everyone needs in their manufacturing to keep up with inventory, production, shipping, and financials. It is an all-in-one integrated system and the best yet...it is available via the cloud. It will reduce your risk and make the "high ups" appreciate you a lot more.

Pros

Intuitive reporting portal and availability in a cloud solution. No server aches or pains!

Cons

Not really a con, but make sure you have the available bandwidth to handle out sourcing SAP Business One to the cloud. You will regret your decision if you have a ton of people accessing it at the same time.

Advice to Others

Make a calculated game plan if you are moving your ERP system to SAP Business One. Also, make sure that you have an implementation manager that has proven themselves before with other migrations. It will save you some headache.

I use SAP for equipment control more than the business aspect. From my use of it so far, it gets the job done. Most of our users find it very comprehensive, with all fields displayed within multiple tabs. The system is pretty quick from our experience.

Cons

Some improvements on being more user-friendly would be appreciated. It would be my hope for SAP to have less transactions.

SAP Business One is an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software suite which primarily serves small to medium-sized businesses with up to one hundred employees and less than $75 million in annual revenue. SAP Business One was originally developed by Israel-based TopManage Financial Systems, which was acquired by SAP in 2002. This move was a bold signal that SAP intends to serve businesses well downmarket and an acknowledgment that a new, specialized product was needed to address the requirements of those companies. SAP Business One has been well-received within the manufacturing, retail, service, and distribution industries, and can address other vertical market needs as well.

SAP B-1 software is the perfect fit for a small-midsize company that would like a fully integrated ERP system.
I was able to implement the system in less than 5 months from start to finish with the assistance of a couple of consultants. This included fully integrated Sales force and customer service, inventory and cost of sales, AP, AR and financial reporting.
It is a highly flexible system allowing for multiple custom codes and fields for the user to assign for reporting and extracting information. We were able to report complicated sales and commission on a multi- tiered structure with ease.
Flexibility is also built in as you can add modules as you go, allowing the system to grow with your business and your changing needs.
They also offer industry specific solutions, right out of the box.

Pros

This software is highly customizable and allows for reporting on a complex and growing business.

Cons

It is a little more complicated to install because it has so much flexibility. It takes a lot of foresight to insure the coding structure is set up correctly.

Advice to Others

This software, once installed is very user friendly and gives you so much insight into your business.
I installed this software when I was Controller of a privately held company.
