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.

SAP

SAP S/4HANA Cloud is well sutied whenever you have a large inventory of complicated devices or machines which have different accessories and the inventory of those accessories is also connected to the machine's inventory. The system can also be used to manage the workforce and billing of employees across different departments and whose worklogs are added through different systems other than SAP.

Cons

Aptean

  • 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.

SAP

  • Light version of the solutions for SMB size companies.
  • Not so straight OOTB implementation and a lot of disparity seems with SAP leadership and the salespeople pitches.
  • Need to make the cloud more exclusive to enable a faster shift of organization from OnPremise/AnyPremise solution to cloud.

    SAP S/4 Hana on-premise could be very IT resources demanding because you need to invest in security and continuous monitoring of disk and memory performance. The best approach is to have S/4 Cloud on Amazon and control your daily demand for resources with flexible pricing. You will focus on the business reports without worrying about the IT local infrastructure

    Customer Service and Support from SAP was crucial during the decision-making process and the following migration. To be clear, migration was far from a friendly and stress-free process, but the Support and Training team sent from SAP was a key to the [successful] implementation. Without this support, I don't believe we would've been able to implement SAP S/4HANA.

    Implementation was as expected. We had minor issues with our Z* transactions, but nothing special. Some tables were extended and needed regeneration. Overall satisfactions is good.

    We select Aptean 19 years ago, most of the other SMB packages back then no longer exist. While we have discussed whether to consider other ERP systems here an there over the years we have always come back to the fact that our existing ERP system is well established and easy enough to maintain, and is cost effective

    We were an Oracle shop before, and SAP was the clear (and only choice) that we considered. SAP was very open to our feedback and would consider making our needs part of the standard solution (where it made sense for their broader user community) for future releases. It offered all of the functionality we were looking for, which would allow us to have a comprehensive solution.

    Return on Investment

    Aptean

    • Runs well without a ton of support
    • One server license required for site, can run several businesses
    • Concurrent licensing keeps costs down for global business

    SAP

    • SAP S/4HANA continues to improve and has therefore done a lot of simplification by adding new and easier features.
    • It is safe to say that in a very small period of time this can become the true essence of any organization.
    • In my opinion, a good and large company cannot work without an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System so that is why this is an overall great tool to be employed.
    • Also, if a business is looking forward to using the more advanced solutions and integrate with different solutions then it is the best option.
