Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The way everything integrated well with everything else was most valuable. We had one solution for everything, from the first phone call down to follow-up visits for wholesale callers and for just regular purchases."

More Acumatica Pros →

"I like its modern approach. It is very modern and new technology.""I have found the consolidation of the business and group reports very useful. There is plenty of features and the manufacturing and finance aspect of the solution are strong.""ByDesign's best features are its speed, real-time data, and reporting.""The most valuable features of Business ByDesign are the integration of its modules, analytics, and dashboards."

Cons
"We should be able to personalize it for the company. There should be more customization of the pages so that they seem more like a company rather than as an outside company. We should be able to change company images and things like that and do this kind of personalization."

More Acumatica Cons →

"ByDesign could be improved by making screen modifications easier.""SAP Business ByDesign is a very vast product, but it has to be a bit more centralized. All the models need to be more centralized for a better experience.""SAP Business ByDesign can improve the flexibility and user-friendliness of the reporting during the implementations. Customizing the reports inside the device requires a lot of knowledge and most of the time a developer level is needed. For example, if you want to have a more specific reporting layout.""The Arabic localization is neglected. It should have an Arabic interface. It lacks Arabic translation or support from right to left."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is very expensive for a small business. If you're a small business, it is not a very good solution in that aspect, but if you are big and have more manufacturing, it is well worth it. It comes with the ability to integrate with one website. We had to modify ours. We customized it so that we could do hundreds of websites. In Texas, I believe that we were the only one ever to be integrated with hundreds of websites. So, the development of our API probably cost us a hundred grand, and then there would be maintenance. That's all outside of the standard licensing fee."

  • "The price of the solution could be better. They have to come up with a new strategy."
  • "We have to pay yearly."
  • "Everything is included in the licensing cost of the solution. However, they use a per-user model for additional charges."
