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.

Workday Financial Management

It was suited for our brand new operation; we 'opened the box' and implemented it from scratch and did not have to sunset older systems and replace with Workday Financial Management. This was well-suited for this. The cloud functionality was a core requirement for the organization, we did not need a Cadillac with all of the trimmings, we moved relatively quickly and installed.

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.

  • We specically wanted a cloud financial management system that we could use in China and communicate reports to the headquarters organization and roll-up reporting. It performs well.
  • It was reasonably priced since we are not a for-profit company and need the Workday flexibility for finance and accounting operations. Most of our requirements are met with this one system.
  • The system worked efficiently with the additional security we built on to keep confidential. Many reports are ready off-the-shelf or easy to develop, which is a strength.

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.

  • We were surprised by the lack of user guides and supporting information for day-to-day users. Granted, we could find this, but our users like guides.
  • The system could improve with contact help and chat functions if you need the answers quickly. We figured this would all have been built in.
  • Quite surprised by the lack of treasury management functionality. SAP and Oracle have it, although their modules are not that comprehensive or user friendly.

We have a lot invested in this from user education to customizations. It would be hard to justify the cost for changing.

Alternatives Considered

This is the only ERP product I have used.
John P. Maher profile photo
Stacking up it was a faster and more inexpensive implementation. Granted it was still early in the system development years, but the results and the five years of using it speak for themselves. Cloud we wanted, comprehensive financials was a core functional requirement and this was met - it would have taken much longer to implement Workday's competitor systems and we did not have that flexibility. Adding new functionality was relatively painless.

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
  • As a new starup affiliate five years ago, we did not have a huge budget. The ROI was met relatively quickly, no surprises here.
  • With minimal consulting assistance, this made the implementation cost reasonable, if any software implementation could be considered reasonable.
  • It was a risk to implement Workday Financial Management in one country but we did leverage it with HCM in the states.
