[Catalyst, by EBM Software] is well suited to track invoices from vendors to get them paid on time to avoid late fees. [Catalyst, by EBM Software] is less appropriate when paying vendor because that is not a function they currently have. If the system was an all in one system that could track and pay your invoices it would be an amazing software.

It is best suited for planning if backend BW which is used as a data provider but not suitable if you don't have any ETL tool to perform data transformation according to the business requirement for planning as SAC is not capable of data transformation like Embedded BPC/Standard BPC which inherently uses ABAP stack of BW to perform data transformation

The support for Catalyst is great and they are usually within the 48 hour response time. There could be a little quicker upload time for invoices that are submitted. They usually show up until the next day on the system and sometimes gives us a stress on time. Overall, the support is quite good

SAC is a simple solution ad it works fine when connecting it to other SAP tools. On the other hand, connecting it to third party solutions brings difficulties when there's no previous design and the objetives are not clear. It is really important to integrate Business users from the start to provide with valuable business insights

Service Now governance risk and compliance suite, ServiceNow vulnerability management suite, or Other vulnerability management tools like Qualys, InsightSecCloud, or Tenable have specific cases to create and evaluate, but what we want is to change every day with vulnerability and product because some vulnerabilities really impact us and some are like nothing so dealing it with great analytics are good to have.
Read full review Return on Investment Catalyst is better than pencil and paper data analysis. But the app can be very frustrating when it's not working the way it did last week. The GUI is very simple. Sometimes too simple, like there is no way to go back in and edit SOAP note options. New feature roll-outs are mandatory. I understand that no one would opt in to being the guinea pig, but it would be nice if you weren't the first user to try it. The integration with billing software has streamlined the billing notes and saved us money over having two separate systems.

SAP is really costly, Our ROI should have been more better if we have got some functionality in the same price. Read full review ScreenShots
