Return on Investment

  • The Coca-Cola bottlers use a multi-tenant environment, and that helps their bottom line as they share a single instance.
  • Integration back to sales enables the Bottles to be more efficient and saves costs that relate to integration to 3rd party sales applications.
  • Reduces the number of 3rd party applications, which saves on operating costs.

Return on Investment

  • It is reliable and works in mostly predictable patterns. This allows us to store data for years without risk of failure.
  • Reporting is sparse - even that which is custom. Most of our reporting is done through Excel from an SAP data dump. The dump is reliable but excel requires a good deal of human intervention.
  • It is available to all team members so we can roll out custom transactions to everyone at the same time. Saving us time and money.

Return on Investment

  • 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

Return on Investment

  • 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.

Return on Investment

  • Possitive impact of investment because if the system if fully implemented, you will save money on better processes, even on people working on it.
  • Negative can be that it takes a very long time to implement it, it can be a year or more, depending on the company and its process.
  • Negative thing can be it is a bit expensive, starting with consulting time, which is the most expensive thing about it in the beginning.
  • Possitive if you are on a plan on expand your business, you need a world leader ERP that support your operations.

Return on Investment

  • So far in a long time, I haven't seen any negative impact on the business, only in terms where the business has very limited resourcing and usages of the system, and is unable to utilize the system and their resources.

Return on Investment

  • As covered before, SAP ERP was long and expensive to implement, but the ROI was made in like 3 years. We sunset tons of other disparate systems.
  • Need constant training refreshes for our people, but this keeps their expertise and efficiency with the system strong, helping morale.
  • We worried about large SAP version upgrades costing us a lot of money, but that has not hit us.

Return on Investment

  • In view of the implementation of SAP ERP in the organization, all the operations activities were systematized, planned, monitored by means of Excel sheets (Microsoft Office), being very cumbersome to keep the information organized and consequently make decisions of objective nature immediately. situation that impeded the fulfillment of the goals and consequently causes loss in the investment.
  • The implementation of SAP ERP operations achieved that the company will improve the goals and in this way improve its profitability index, obtaining income, and profits that favor the company's growth and the benefits of the personnel.
  • It was possible to control the inventory for the operation of the company, being very beneficial because they avoided the considerable loss of materials and equipment, situation that generated loss to the company.
  • Increased the price of the company's shares because the organization has gained prestige and recognition of the fulfillment of the goals.

Return on Investment

  • Positive because you have the transactions necessary for the complete functioning of the different departments (orders, deliveries, credits).
  • Negative at the moment that it is necessary to manage an order but [we] do not have the permissions of the transactions (prior to written authorization) and the responsible department is not there.
  • Negative because we have a way to send emails in SAP ERP but it is very complicated to use and we are using the email manager.
  • Negative because we don't have a simple and friendly way to send emails from SAP. It is very complicated to use and then we copy the information from SAP and paste in a new email message.

Return on Investment

  • SAP success depends firstly on your consultant's knowledge and installation experience including industry knowledge. Without this criteria, your SAP installation will be a failure. Using SAP themselves as an implementation partner will cost a fortune, so many will turn to a qualified, certified implementation consultant.
  • There is always a positive side when looking at ROI attributes. There is more cost to implementation than SAP ERP costs itself. They are more consultant-related and implementation criteria-related. In relation to SAP, the cost has always been justified and the ROI is always positively lower than other ERP implementations due to its effectiveness and successful factors.
  • SAP has always got an edge in terms of its system consultants, certified SAP personnel and support level. SAP support is one of the best, if not the top, support orientated company. Staff with SAP knowledge are an asset to the company. The ROI in investing in SAP makes support and talent hunting easy as there are more people who are knowledgeable in SAP than any other ERP in the market.

Return on Investment

  • Headcount reductions are significant both in IT and user departments
  • When implemented with a true PMO is provides a solid basis for all future development
  • It can negatively impact on users who previously had tailored bespoke software - this area needs to be managed sensibly
  • In a distributed company centralisation of key data allows comparisons & improvements between sites to be fast tracked

SAP at a Bird's Eye View

Return on Investment

  • SAP allows for much faster decision making because the information in the system is in real time. There is much less time spent gathering data from desperate locations.
  • The cost in training and support becomes much lower when using SAP vs multiple other systems. Users from one location to another follow the same process and steps to complete their daily job functions and can reach out to each other for help and support.
  • Interface reductions. Having SAP as a single source ERP solution reduces the IT costs associated with managing multiple data sources and dealing with interface errors when they occur.
