  • Some users find the user interface to be complex, particularly for new users. Simplifying the interface and providing more user-friendly navigation could enhance the overall user experience.
  • Customization Challenges:
  • Customizing certain aspects of the system, such as reports or templates, can be challenging. A more intuitive customization process would empower users to tailor the system to their specific needs more easily.
  • Learning Curve:
  • The platform has a steeper learning curve for some users, especially those less familiar with advanced procurement tools. Improved onboarding resources and training materials could help users get up to speed more quickly.

  • The complex integration we have with ERPs make it difficult to move or upgrade to SAP S4 HANA. Reimplementing all integrations and not impact business is a challenge
  • Requires a lot of tedious testing so that no role or function is impacted
  • Very time consuming to implement or upgrade. For large corporations it would take years to slowly migrate to S4HANA
