Abas ERP

ABAS by far offers the most bang for the buck. We are able to handle all of our business functions through ABAS and also have additional features like Business Apps, Business Intelligence, Vendor and Customer portals, as well as many other features that many other ERP packages didn't have. It has allowed us to consolidate our software packages and also provide visibility since everything is now connected.

SAP Business One

SAP is well suited for businesses with a large amount of inventory to track, businesses with a massive customer/vendor database, etc. However, SAP Business One can be a little pricy, and for very small companies I would not recommend it. Potential buyers should ask questions about importing information from a prior system because this process can take a long-time to switch from an older system.

Pros

  • Flexibility. ABAS is fully customizable. This allows us to create a work environment that is as custom as we are. Some ERP software packages force you to adopt their methods. With ABAS we can build the system the way we want it to work.
  • Adaptable. ABAS has the ability to work with other software packages and provide a seamless connection. We use Solid Works for our engineering designs. ABAS is connected to Solid Works and this eliminates transfer errors while reducing the time it takes for engineers to load bills of material.
  • Service. ABAS has well-trained service technicians. The time it takes to get a response is minimal and the network of knowledge their support group has, helps to streamline any tasks we may present or questions we may have.

  • Inventory Management - provides many different entry fields to help keep track of all the inventory essentials, and makes finding a product through enterprise search very easy.
  • User Customization - SAP allows users to customize their "cockpit" to fit their specific department, which makes it easy to navigate to your most used operations.
  • Business Partners - Keeping track of each individual business partner is now much easier to maintain.

Cons

  • ABAS is headquartered in Germany with a US based headquarters in Virginia. Some of the programming structures were based on European methods that differed somewhat from the way business is done in the US. ABAS-USA has worked to modify the system so that it is in tune with US business practices and has made great strides in this effort. For the average user, the structures may go unnoticed, but for the more advanced user, some of the field names that are used for advanced reporting might be in German. However, ABAS-USA has recently been updating the programming language to be fully in English.
  • Because ABAS is growing rapidly, more complex customizations might take longer to complete than normal. ABAS appears to be bringing on even more technicians to handle the increased workload so the concern is waning.
Josh Schroeder profile photo
  • Posting payments - if trying to post payments for a prior date, it always puts back the actual date of the time you deposit. This makes it much more tedious if posting checks from a previous date.
  • Start-up time - start-up time can be very slow if you do not have a large amount of ram in your computer to keep up with SAP's massive size.
  • Crashing - depending on how many add-on's you have, SAP can have a tendency to crash. It should be more add-on friendly.

As I said before, it is a first level tool, well developed, and with very strong development support, although the learning curve, its implementation, the cost-benefit ratio, the price and the user experience is not the most suitable for small and medium-sized companies. It is a company with extensive experience, market positioning, technical support and expanded use

Being a high profile tool, a user level with specific experience and skills is required to use the program. Which deserves special attention in the junior staff, requires a good management of the administrative part to develop all the benefits of the program. For young and inexperienced people the interface is not flashy. Although it is a very complete program.

Over the past two years SAP has added a great deal of new SAP Business One on-line training for version 9.0 and 9.1. Most of the training is very strong, but some is difficult to understand and follow. Additionally, SAP still has a few holes in their on-line training around Production, Bill-of-Materials, MRP and Service.

Conduct interviews with the administrative and accounting areas, ask about the experience with the tool, make free test modules to detect the possibilities of use, as well as, validate the necessary investment for the implementation of the program with the system area, to determine if it is the most viable option

Alternatives Considered

These other software packages all have strengths but for what we were looking for in one system, to handle most of our business processes, but also allow the flexibility to be customized (without the need to be placed on a "like to have" waiting list), ABAS gave us that ability, hands down.

Pricing, global reach, great fit for certain industries. A robust tool that can effectively run a small business and scale into the tens of millions in revenue.

For most small businesses, the only way you outgrow SAP Business One is if the nature of your business changes radically. Going from 1 to 50 users is quite easy with SAP B1. Going beyond 50 may require moving to the Hana SAP B1 platform to maintain or improve performance, but the path is there.
Add-ons to SAP B1 can also be added as specific needs are encountered that are not closely met by the standard product. These may be required early in the product life because of the nature of your business, or as you expand the use of SAP B1.

Return on Investment

  • ABAS has the capability to handle many of the processes that we did on various software platforms. Since we've been able to consolidate these platforms, the cost of subscriptions, maintenance and management hasve been reduced.
  • Efficiency was a noticeable impact right from the start. In the past, reports from one system had to be loaded into another in order to provide the analysis needed for business decisions. Connections to our design software also reduced the amount of time our engineers spent manually creating bills of material and purchase requisitions.
  • The ability to see what's happening in various business functions all in one place has helped with decision making and provided the data necessary to ask the right questions when arriving at those hard decisions.
Josh Schroeder profile photo
  • Great tool for companies looking for a more robust option than QB or Sage
  • Great for companies that need rigid & accurate procedures to meet compliance standards (gov’t, pharma, etc)
  • Bring automation to companies that overspend on manual data entry
