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 ERP

SAP is an extremely integrated system. Not all companies are ready for this. Many are so used to having systems that require a lot of batch processing, giving kind of an extra cushion to allow for errors or mistakes. SAP is a live system, meaning that when you commit or transact something, it triggers the integration among all modules that touch whatever the transaction is for. An example is allowing SAP to generate purchasing documents based on the scheduled demand for production. Say someone puts in a work order and by mistake, fat fingers an extra zero on the desired quantity. This may cause SAP to purchase WAY more raw materials than you need. This is a great feature, but it can also come back to hurt you if not controlled properly.

Pros

Abas ERP

  • Ability to drill down information from one screen to another
  • Allows creation of various custom fields screens and reports
  • Availability of "demo" system where one can test new functionality without affecting "Live Abas ERP"
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

Cons

Abas ERP

  • 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.

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Alternatives Considered

Abas ERP

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.
Josh Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

SAP was found to be better suited for the manufacturing nature of our organization's business and provides robust process integrations across production, supply chain, order management, material master and inventory management. Although the user experience aspect was less than desirable, the business process consolidation outweighed this shortcoming. The cost of implementation and maintenance was higher for SAP.

Return on Investment

Abas ERP

  • Abas ERP has had positive impact on our overall business objectives.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

  • The Coca-Cola bottlers use a multi-tenant environment, and that helps their bottom line as they share a single instance.
  • Integration back to sales enables the Bottles to be more efficient and saves costs that relate to integration to 3rd party sales applications.
  • Reduces the number of 3rd party applications, which saves on operating costs.
