"Epicor ERP is very technical friendly, if you want to do any customization, it's very easy."
"There's good flexibility within the inbuilt tools such as alerts, business process management, dashboards, and screen customization."
"When correctly configured, this is a very stable solution. We have customers running their process automation manufacturing based off of this solution."
"It's highly customizable."
"As we have been using this for the past nine years we have had the opportunity to explore the product. Really everything has worked well and all the modules are very good."
"Technical support is good."
"I have found the solution to have a good interface, security, and is user-friendly."
"If I want to manage many parts of my organization, such as finances, proceedings, or supply chain I would typically need to buy many different solutions. However, with Oracle E-Business Suite, it is all that is needed. This ERP system has many modules."
"You can group them into the BIs, which is business intelligence. You get your own key performance indicators and build your own reports or you could have your own screens, and it changes in real time."
"Oracle E-Business Suite has over 20 different modules to choose from, it is comprehensive. Additionally, the integration is very good."
"Right now, it doesn't really have a good cloud story."
"In the newer version of Epicor ERP, it's very difficult to find out that tracing."
"Oracle has improved a lot because Oracle E-Business Suite is quite outdated. Oracle built the Oracle Fusion platform and it has many improved processes. We registered a few enhancements requests, but it's a very long bureaucratic process with Oracle. It doesn't make any sense to communicate with Oracle about what changes should be made to the system."
"If you get away from the financials core of the product, it is not so good at handling peripherals."
"It would be nice to have more web services."
"Oracle is not keeping up on development of the on-premises version of this product as they are concentrating on cloud solutions."
"Oracle E-Business Suite uses an old technology (Forms), which is Java-based."
"The user interface could be better. It's not good because they made their interface all in one, and my customers don't want to use it. I have to customize the interface and personalize it to hide some fields on the screen. It has lots of information on the screen, and the user can't easily navigate it. It's very difficult to use. I think that Oracle should have something like best practices. They need to provide some patches to simplify the interface based on the industry niche. Because now we see everything on the same screen, but the users don't need all that information. It's complicated to use for end-users, and we have to spend more time training them. In the next release, I think they should implement most of the features in the mobile app. It should be better. Oracle didn't update their mobile application for a very long time. Connecting the mobile application is complicated."
"One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system."
"There are some cycles in HR that are not straightforward."

Reviews from Real Users:
Kopano R., Freelancer at a tech services company, says, “What I found most valuable in Oracle E-Business Suite is the patching because it is straightforward. As long as you follow Oracle's best practices, you are able to finish the task of patching without a problem. I like that it's also easy to add products, e.g. if you want to add on financials, you can, or if you don't have financials, you can expand on that. I like that Oracle E-Business Suite is really scalable.”
