Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business ByDesign

We use it to hire and terminate employees. We also use it for all of our accounting, finance, process orders, sales, opportunities, client invoices, and suppliers invoices. We also use to manage our projects. We create projects (regular projects, maintenance projects, warranty projects) and we also use it for our inventory and stock of parts/spare parts. We also use it to enter time and process our business expense reports. Finally, we use it to keep track of our time off requests for vacation or sick time.
  • Managing projects and people
  • Prepare invoices
  • Tracking/following flows
  • Time off request could be better. Right now, there is no option for sick time
  • It crashes often
  • Customization could be better
  • Positive impact on time gained.
  • One platform only to manage variety of functions.
  • Accessible from everywhere (computer and mobile app).
Oracle did not fit the size of our company and the needs that we had. It was also much more expensive but the product itself was not really designed for our size. We selected SAP Business ByDesign, even over the regular SAP software, because it is designed for small and medium companies. We use it in our headquarters in France and in our subsidiaries, and it is perfect. We choose the language and we can work together or independently, remotely or not.
It is a good tool for small and medium companies. We really like it and it is easy to use. It is good for managing and following a lot of departments in a company, from sales, projects, accounting and finance to HR management. It is one place where we see the flows of various departments of the company. Licenses can be expensive but there are many different options to choose from to get the license you need that's the best fit for each user.
