As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.

  • Customization inside of SAP requires rigorous testing and specialty knowledge of ABAP to perform unique functions.
  • SAP is not cheap. The cost of SAP can be prohibitive to smaller companies looking for an ERP solution.
  • Almost all of the table names and abbreviations inside of the SAP database structure are in German which makes BI reporting and data analysis difficult for non-German programmers and analysts.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

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

Once you learn how to use SAP ERP, it becomes a powerful tool for analysis and inventory management.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
SAP is greatly superior to JD Edwards. JD Edwards was a manual, clunky system that didn't work well with other locations that were using SAP.

  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.

Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Positive impact is one stop ERP solution for all HCM needs
  • Negative impact is ECC has no place for big data, analytics, user friendly Talent system unless you integrate it with SAP SF
  • Portal is out dated and needs more fancy features
  • Workflow configuration needs simplified approach
