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.

It has more functionality than Epicor, especially with image storage. However, Epicor does allow you to set up transactions for future use - like general ledger templates. Epicor also allows you to upload easily from Excel for small-batch data. SAP only has large data imports. SAP is harder to learn and requires more user set-up.

SAP was found to be better suited for the manufacturing nature of our organization's business and provides robust process integrations across production, supply chain, order management, material master and inventory management. Although the user experience aspect was less than desirable, the business process consolidation outweighed this shortcoming. The cost of implementation and maintenance was higher for SAP.

I have made several comparisons between ERP software a long time ago (early 2000). They are not valid anymore as the complete set of players in the market has changed dramatically. Nowadays, SAP ERP still is a big player in the market, but the most significant competitors have changed from then to now.

SAP ERP Review

I've worked with Dynamics in the past and, as opposite to SAP, it's a product that allows too much flexibility to the end-user. This could be a problem as it causes to not have standardized processes with different results. Also, from an IT point of view, as SAP ERP is the system implemented in most companies, it is easier to hire employees with previous experience in SAP and to work with multiple partners to adapt/implement this solution.

SAP is much more powerful than Dynamics GP. Dynamics GP is great for smaller shops with simple transactions and some inventory or manufacturing activity. It does not hold up well against SAP's advanced functionality and extensive reporting and tracking capabilities. Of course, Dynamics GP is much less expensive and would be better suited for SMEs that are trying to increase their reporting capabilities without breaking the bank.

SAP is the market leader. We had an extensive RFP and demo process and made the right choice. You have to be full in with the selection and stay aggressive with the deadlines or the company will regret it. Workday was not proven enough and PeopleSoft (under Oracle) was not a fit with our functional requirements.

There are many modules and SAP Products which can be evaluated against SAP ERP, but SAP ERP is the single product that can be utilized with its resourcing and features to manage and use for your complete business.

World wide adoption, diversity and partners availability. Geographic legal requirements functionality. Professional availability are pros. Cost of implementation, end user usability are cons. It has a very good integration cross modules and the API are very robust avoiding data integrity issue when you implement interfaces from and to other systems thru functional modules or BAPIs

Previously all of the company's operations management activities were worked with Microsoft Office Excel, a situation that caused problems with keeping the information organized and current. Therefore, the decision was made to use SAP ERP, a program that would adjust to the operational dynamics of the company because it allows each of the production plant, and the coordinations to work in an integrated manner, facilitating the analysis of the information, decision making, issuing of reports and reports, and the organization of the operational activities.

Being a worldwide integrated ERP solution and having catered to a lot of businesses in our specific industry, SAP stood out in terms of: 1. Support Level
2. Ease of modifying current module
3. Ease of integrating different functionality to existing module
4. Create an entirely bespoke module integrating with multiple modules for specific functionality.
5. Resources for learning, training and understanding.
6. Multi level consultants

SAP covered more of the industry specifics in its core than Oracle
Salesforce was good at what it did but costly.
Once SAP was taken on board with the bulk of the company it was a "no-brainer" to buy Payroll / HR.
Bespoke systems or external packages were used for very industry specific tasks...but with a constant review as new features are added.

  • Oracle eBusiness Suite,Infor ERP
There are many competitors in the ERP marketplace. Large organizations that would benefit from SAP would also want to take a close look at Oracle Enterprise Solutions for financial and procurement tools. Oracle eBusiness gives great flexibility in the customization department and also allows for faster implementation, yet doesn't have all the modules that SAP does.

Infor is another great competitor in the ERP marketplace with tools like the Advanced Planning module that makes forecasting demand much easier and more configurable than the offers by SAP.
