SAP ERP Financials is an application from the full SAP Business Suite. Serving almost any industry and any company size, it is a truly versatile ERP solution. Managing risk, compliance, and governance, SAP ERP Financials is effective at increasing visibility within an organization, as well as reducing costs, keeping workflow organized, and minimizing waste. SAP ERP Financials has vertical-specific functionality for the distribution industry.
SAP solutions can integrate with third-party software as well. In this case, companies leveraging software systems from other vendors can keep these existing investments and combine their functionality with SAP in the distribution industry. Even as a fully-functional ERP product, SAP for Distribution delivers complete tracking, management, analytics, reporting, compliance, and collaboration processes.
As profit margins slowly shrink and the pressure to deliver efficiently increases, professionals in the distribution industry will benefit meaningfully in their planning, procurement, warehouse management, order management, and other obligations when they leverage the SAP for Distribution system. This system works well for both mid-sized and large businesses in this industry who want to quicken the pace and efficiency of sales order processing, make customers happier, and improve other general aspects of their business operations. Further drilling down beyond just overall distribution, the system serves the specific needs of companies involved in food and beverage, healthcare, high-tech, and industrial markets.
SAP’s flexibility is derived in part from its service-oriented architecture (SOA), which encourages business-specific functionality and allows interoperation of services. In addition, SAP leverages its NetWeaver technology platform, which allows users to extend their applications across the networks of their customers’ businesses. SAP has an extensive community network of partners and customers that supports the development of additional functionality for many different industries.

This user interface looks like it is out of the 1980's. They have not been innovative within this aspect of the software at all. The system is also very picky and you have to do everything perfectly or else your whole process will be ruined and incorrect. It is not easy to learn how to use either.
Go with Oracle instead

The product, itself, is really simple to use. They are trying to integrate more and more functions that suitable to inventory management. However, I personally love the price, we be able to use it with lower cost and full function. We love the fact that the company take customer serious and always there when we need assists. I would love to recommend this service to any start-up business to control their inventory system
- Simple and easy to use
- Good interface
- Run smoothly without any lag or system problem
- Not a lot of function for warehouse inventory control
- Some equipment go with the system is expensive
- Update without notice
Better use customs service where you can find the fittest service to you

My company is using this specific software for a Glass bottle Manufacturer and SAP serves as a big help for such. Being a manufacturer demands inventory be extremely organized and our supply chain work smoothly and SAP is the main software we use for such; which is extremely efficient.
The latest technology in a flexible and easy-to-use format.
There is a lot of information which can be overwhelming at first.
Make sure to get in contact with customer service when you have an issue as they will help you get a resolution much faster than wanting to figure things out on your own.

The integration that SAP offers is extremely well done compared to other ERP software packages available.
Due to the integration and flexibility to configure SAP to fit many different business processes, SAP is not the most intuitive program to learn for new users.
Try and see past the lack of intuitiveness in the software. The integration with other modules makes it a very powerful tool (once the learning curve is behind you).
