Aptean Intuitive ERP

If you have a programmer and are willing to let them learn the system and want software to function the way you run your business this may work well. If you do not have a programmer on staff and are willing to change your business to match the software but think in the future you may wish to modify your ERP software this may work out well. If you want something you can modify quickly this is not a good choice. If you do not wish to modify the code nor your business practices an evaluation would be required. It does allow substantial modifications, but there are areas it may not fit with your business so well. It is possible that Intuitive may happen to make the options you require available in the future.

As we have already described, it is an ideal tool for small and medium companies, with a well designed ERP system and adjusted to the reality of the business. It is a sober, reliable tool with extensive experience in the development of administrative tools. The cost-benefit ratio is appropriate for companies of this size. The points of improvement are the integration with other platforms and the visual interface for average users.

Pros

  • Easily allows adding fields to the database. The data manager reads all fields, so just adding a field automatically brings it over.
  • Optionally purchasing a tool called "Form Wizard" allows non-programmers to add new fields to a form and move around existing fields freeing up the developer to work on other things.
  • They have a wrapper for the DevXpress grid which allows individual users to add and remove columns pertinent to their specific job.
John P. Maher profile photo
  • SAP B1's technology is superb. SAP provides user tools to quickly add fields to a screen, re-arrange fields on a screen for optimal user interface, and create SQL queries to verify data as it is entered.
  • SAP B1 is tightly integrated. This is a product developed for this millennium - all of the modules are tightly integrated and the flow from one module to another. Even third party add-on products use the same technology platform for development -- making it seamless integration.
  • SAP B1 has integration to phone technology as an integral part of the software, allowing user's access to their data not just from their office but from anywhere they have network access.
  • The look and feel of the software is the same no matter what module you are using. Training is simplified - if you are trained on the sales order --> shipper --> invoice process, the same user could easily manage the purchase order --> PO receipt --> A/P invoice process because the screens are so similar.
  • SAP's education is superb. They have literally hundreds of hours of on-line training available for their customers. If you need to brush up on a process or train a new employee, you simply direct them to the appropriate video and they can learn at their own pace.
  • The software is robust. There are many 'wizards' included in the software. For instance their is an A/P payment wizard that leads you through the payment process.
  • SAP includes approval processes as an integral part of their software. For instance, if purchasing requests could be entered by any user but all (or some) could require approval by the head of purchasing.
  • There are alerts for out of condition processes. For instance, you can define an alert for the sale of any item below 10% margin, or an alert whenever a major client shipment is near to missing on time delivery. The alerts are all SQL queries that look for conditions that you define as requiring an alert.

Cons

  • Documentation. The design of en extensible system works well once you figure it out. Some things can be tricky and time consuming.
  • They provide no support for customizations. I can understand not wanting to help write specific custom code, but they refuse to even tell anyone what a method on a base class does unless you pay them $200 an hour.
  • Their proprietary design can cause modifications to take longer. If you use one of their forms you can not load it, you must call their launch function and put you code in the "Execute" method. If they were more standardized the documentation issue would not be so bad.
John P. Maher profile photo
  • No payroll module.
  • The initial implementation of the dashboard is overly complicated. Once it is set up it functions well, but it takes more effort than it should to get operational. And it takes lots of computer expertise to get operational.
  • Few customers use the Outlook integration with SAP. The ease of use between Outlook and SAP B1 could be improved.
  • Few customers use the CRM module heavily. Mostly this is because of the Outlook integration and the discipline it takes to use it properly.

I cannot run my business without SAP Business One in place. I only consult on on product and that is SAP Business One. Business volume goes to zero if I don't use SAP Business One. It is the best product on the market - head and shoulders above other ERP packages I have looked at or implemented in the past.

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

This is the only ERP product I have used.
John P. Maher profile photo
I was a consultant for several other products in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's. The support I get from SAP far exceeds any support or assistance I ever got from Microsoft or other vendors. Specifically, I have worked with: Microsoft CRM; Microsoft Solomon; Microsoft Dynamics; Macola; BPICS; None of the products were developed from scratch and fully integrated from the beginning. SAP puts more effort and dollars into R&D than any of their competitors - combined. And it shows in the products being delivered and the continuous improvements being made.The key thing - I have no doubt that the SAP will continue to improve upon functionality and the underlying technology for SAP over the next 10 years or more.

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

  • Since we can customize it I would like to think it has been beneficial.
  • It is difficult to measure how well business would have done without the software.
John P. Maher profile photo
  • Efficient reporting on sales, finance and Inventory.
  • Better customer service due to an interconnected database where you can find information quickly.
  • Allowed the use of EDI with vendors and customers which allows real time data for incoming/outgoing inventory.
