Overall Satisfaction with SAP ERP

SAP ERP is our core platform for all our business areas, currently set on-premise but integrated with the new SAP on-cloud solutions such as Concur and Fieldglass. Also, our FI appliances are integrated with non-SAP operational systems through SAP PI. In summary, we have a hybrid and integrated ecosystem that allows the unification of most financial operations in one place.
  • Centralized and reliable accounting.
  • Customizable to the operation and core business of our company.
  • Wide and extensive network of consultants specialized in each module.
  • User experience not friendly, difficult to teach to new SAP users.
  • Any change or improvement must be made by a professional in general with high fees, not for everyone.
  • Management cost, requires an on-site team to manage it.
  • Get control of data and processes but you sacrifice the UX.
  • UX is improved with the Fiori layer but it is sold separately.
  • Standardization of processes: priceless.
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.
Appropriate for large scale companies with the willingness to implement it in a reasonable time, guided by a SAP partner. High commitment if a company decides to get SAP-ified.
