"The system can be integrated with other SAP functionalities - such as finance, production, sales, marketing, HR, et cetera, and can also be customized to become a model that's specifically designed for my business. That's the solution's most valuable aspect.""The most valuable features are the ease of installation and the MM functionality.""The solution has far more features, processes, and functionalities than we previously had.""It is an integrated application, and it has been working really well. Earlier, there were different companies for different applications for manufacturing, finance controlling, logistics, and quality. It probably was the first fully integrated application. Whenever somebody is entering any data, for example, invoice data or ordering data, everyone with a right to see this data can see it in the system.""ERP can help manage all enterprise resources. It brings them together and provides some analytical data to inform management decisions.""It meets our requirements for what we need it to do in the manufacturing industry.""The most valuable feature is the robust workflows that SAP provides to us in our organization. Overall, I find it the best ERP solution compared to other similar solutions.""The transactional integration of operations is the best-recommended feature of this product. It provides integration of all operational modules."

"The product does not update budgeting based on exchange rates which is important for BPM.""The problem for us, we are one company that has seven home markets. Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. When we need to configure, modify rules, change policies, or taxes rules, when we move currencies around based on our other financial results, it can get very complicated. When we try to join everything together we have some problems. However, the process good, all of our material and procurement processes are going well. The problem is trying to consolidate the financial reports and this is where I have problems.""The user interface can be more intuitive and user-friendly by having it be more menu-driven, this would be a large benefit.""The solution is quite expensive. They need to work on the pricing to make it more reasonable.""Pricing could be improved for preferred customers.""We will not make any major changes, and we are not expecting any enhancements or new features from SAP because they already have a new solution. No development is happening on SAP ERP because SAP has come up with a new version called SAP S/4HANA, which is memory-based technology. We are planning to upgrade to SAP S/4HANA, but we don't know when it will happen. We are in the preparation phase.""Could be more user friendly.""More integrations and built-in integrations with other environments and products are needed."
