BEST SOFTWARE TO OPTIMIZE OVERALL COST

Yes, as per our requirements, there should be some transaction code for viewing stock of material for different make.

Pros

The SAP is the best platform for medium or high scale industry for specific data separation and evaluation.
we can manage the data entry from one to another place and also take advantage of it.
Due to different authorization, we can manage the authority of any ID as we want to allow.
There is different code like one only for verify, second for edit and third for create.
we can keep 'n' number of data in SAP and it will help to track history.

Cons

The person should have basic knowledge of computer.
the person should keep remembering some code for the transaction.
Due to the higher load, Some time SAP works with very slow speed and it takes more time to show results.
If any person starts heavy work on SAP like export to spreadsheet or compilation, it may occur to server down problem and need to restart server that can cut the current running session of all users without saving their data.

Okay software, could use an upgrade

Pros

This software is okay to use but can be very confusing when being introduced. It seems as if it hasn't had an upgrade since the 90's.

Cons

The software is very confusing and not very intuitive. There are a lot of steps required to run reports.

Good experience; help greatling in managing budgets

Pros

The emcompassed functionality and possibility to adapt. Apart from financial we widely use it as a controlling tool.

Cons

The user interface is not very attractive and doesn't make one "want" to work with it. Controlling is organised verticaly - it would help if mixed projects could be implemented (cost across, vertically and horizontaly)

Forget MS Excel

If you use SAP Financials together with other SAP modules like MM, PP and CO you have a fully integrated ERP Software. The drilldown functionality helps you to understand and to analyse the different processes in your company. If you are used to work with Excel for analysis it is not longer necessary with SAP financials, because the standard reports give you a lot of information. They can be easily adjusted for all kinds of adhoc queries. Even if this is not enough you can implement SAP BI for more taylormade analysis. Every module costs money, often based on amount of users that work with it. So the SAP license modell makes sense from mid sized companies onwards. For small businesses are often much cheaper acounting solutions available. It is very important to take for the master data maintenance otherwise your reports and analysis may show wrong conclusions. For every SAP module a key-user in every entity/company has to be defined.

Very Outdated Compared to Oracle

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.

Cons

Bad user interface, hard to learn

Review of SAP

Pros

The integration that SAP offers is extremely well done compared to other ERP software packages available.

Cons

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.
