Likelihood to Recommend

Infor ERP

It is well suited for accountants that know what information they need for accounting transactions and financial reports. It is well suited for manufacturing since the progress from raw materials to finished goods is easy to track and analyze. The software is well suited to handle individual jobs but then roll up reporting for families of products that are similar.

SAP ERP

If business and financial consolidation is a problem for any organization, SAP would work very well to bring in consistency in processes and transparency in financials. The solution works well if the customization is kept to a minimal level and industry standard business processes are followed in an organization

Pros

Infor ERP

  • It is one of the simplest products on the market. Very user friendly and in my opinion not complicated and busy wit unnecessary tools.
  • We usually do a very short training for new hires and they pick it up promptly.
  • Data processing is fast and results are always on time.
  • Good amount of ready made reports for our needs.

SAP ERP

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

Cons

Infor ERP

  • Infor ERP is a great stand alone ERP system but add-on software packages are often needed to attain a greater level of detail. Our organization has recently teamed up with ScottTech to implement a warehouse management system called PickPro. PickPro will provide us with up-to-the-minute inventory information driven by the many transactions and movement of material that occurs throughout our processes.
  • The Human Resource module is not used by our organization as it lacks functionality.
  • Reports and background tasks/updates often need to be run after-hours as speed is a serious issue and can hinder other parallel users.

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

Strong technology stack that gives it long term strengths. Syteline is very scaleable, highly extensible and expandable. Work flow processing (ION) is strong and useful for increasing system feedback to user and decreasing repetitive tasks. Automated report generation is powerful. User interface is clean and very accessible. Broad functionality to meet a wide range of demanding environments. This is a solution you can use long term and not outgrow.

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

Alternatives Considered

Infor ERP

In Vendor/Application Selection INFOR ERP rated high in Production Capability and Shop Floor Management. INFOR ERP was weaker in financials. INFOR ERP appears to be strong for retail and order (pick/pack/ship) fulfillment operations. INFOR ERP Management offered aggressive pricing and was willing to be flexible for other software and implementation costs.

SAP ERP

Main differentiator: extensive proven experience in different industries, robust solution that includes each functional area, SAP ERP is not only an accounting platform, it is also a business ecosystem. Extends its basic functionalities with products for the analysis of information such as SAP BW and now, SAP Analytics Cloud.

Return on Investment

Infor ERP

  • The software has provided a great ROI. It is much easier to track performance from company-wide all the way down to a single job.
  • Infor ERP helps managers assess where costs accumulate and determine ways to counteract rising costs.
  • The software allows managers to see in a timely manner how the various manufacturing groups are performing.
Lukas Sundahl, MBA profile photo

SAP ERP

  • The SAP implementation has consumed a lot more resources than had been originally forecast and has taken longer to complete. We have been doing mostly an in-house implementation, so some issues have come up that may have been solved more quickly with outside expertise.
  • SAP has allowed our company to have greater visibility and control over costs, both in administrative spending and production costs. We are primarily a manufacturing company, so keeping a close eye on manufacturing cost inputs and production cost variances has had a very positive impact on our organization.
  • Our bottom-line IT costs have skyrocketed with the implementation of SAP, but the payback to manufacturing efficiency has made the investment worth it.
