Foundation Software

We have been able to use Foundation Software in almost every construction accounting situation. You can tell it was designed for the intricacies of construction accounting. While we have not explored it lately, the project management module was not ideal. Foundation Software knows accounting and is strong in that field. I think they would be best suited to stay within the accounting realm and focus their resources on that arena.

In the on-premise world of things, it ruled the world. The ease with which it can be customized and the language support it provides is simply amazing. Their landscape and transport management is brilliant. It saves millions of dollars for huge enterprises. I only wish that their support model can be enhanced further.

Cons

Foundation Software

  • Not truly cloud based
  • Remote access is tedious
  • "Customization" is limited
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

  • SAP sometimes gets slow whenever most of the people in the company simultaneously use it
  • Hopefully they would extend background job processing to all tables in SAP since it sometimes goes time out whenever extracting large historical data (ex. 5 years expense data)

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

Foundation Software makes setup and data entry clean and straightforward. Even without prompts, a user would be able to navigate around the basic functions of the software. With a little training and the help manual they provide, a user can learn the system very easily. For those wanting to get deeper into things like queries and dashboards, they offer trainings and conferences that are helpful.

SAP ERP is highly efficient with handling both large and complex organizations and it has the ability to handle different departments within the company and the data security is fool proof. It also automatically enables the data to be available between different modules such as SD and MM or HCM or IM and QM so users do not have to use multiple applications to run their everyday business.

I have used Foundation Software support many times over the last ten years. I have never had an issue they were unable or unwilling to address. Even oddities are handled quickly and resolved efficiently. I have also had customization done and was very happy with the customer support they offered in developing a query and report that would met our unique need.

Well, I've had several scenarios where it was evident that they simply buy time. At the same time, their Product Support and Implementation teams are most likely not in sync. What's said by a member of implementation may not hold good when you refer the same thing with a member of the support team.

Alternatives Considered

Foundation Software

Personally,
I did not have a hand in deciding the software, but for our company is has not
led to increased productivity or made things easier. It has been more difficult
for payroll to be inputted correctly and the payroll reports for certified
payroll often come out incorrect and we need to manually figure out how to correct
the issues and get them in correctly
Erica Weiner | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP is totally integrated as are many of its greatest competitors, but the level of detail in the integration between modules puts SAP heads and shoulders above all others. Granted, the SAP implementation can be much more difficult to perform, but in the long run, the amount of effort you put in will result in excellent usability. After using Oracle's E-Business Suite for over 20 years, we did a due diligence search that lasted over 18 months before making a decision to go with SAP. This was a result of our Oracle system being made "un-upgradeable" due to a custom module that Oracle Consulting actually built for us. We were stuck in an old version of their database that would not work upon patching to the next version.

Return on Investment

Foundation Software

  • Double input for payroll.
  • Certified payroll reports lacking.
  • Takes more time.
Erica Weiner | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP ERP

  • SAP has helped in transparency across different business unit and single financial view of the company that previously did not exist.
  • The cost of supporting the solution is slightly higher than the previous ERP and the consulting solutions cost more.
  • Overall SAP has brought in positive ROI and uniform business practices across the organization
