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 S/4HANA

Good for global organizations operating in multiple geographies/product verticals that require a stable, fully integrated Financial Accounting System with built-in controls. It supports multiple ledgers and currencies. The power of SAP S4/HANA to process millions of records in seconds facilitates reporting in real-time. It could be less appropriate for smaller organizations that do not have complex business models.

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.

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.

  • Roadmap of SAP S4/HANA is changing rapidly, customers will be challenged to catch up with the latest versions and upgrades
  • Early adoption to latest version poses the risk of bugs and issues
  • SAP Integration with other systems could be improved

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.

SAP'S roadmap on S/4HANA is meeting the next generation of reporting needs. The built-in rigid controls provide greater comfort for senior management. S4/HANA is powerful and provides real time reporting. The overall cost of deployment and support of SAP S4/HANA was found to be lesser than other products. The global presence of SAP Support is also a positive factor.

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.

  • Unified single Financial Accounting System lowered the cost of maintenance and support.
  • Built-in controls provide greater comfort for the CFO to relay on the Financial Reporting.
  • Reporting with latest tools including FIORI APPS are useful with mobile-enabled devices.
  • Built-in CDS views are useful for Reporting with Analysis for Office.
