AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

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

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | 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.
Brandon Macapelit, CISA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).
Les Kule | 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

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company
Les Kule | 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.
