We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"The most valuable features are the claim management.""ERP is stable. The outcome is clear to us as far as the design goes.""The solution is quite scalable.""It is easier to migrate to SAP ERP from a legacy system. We have different products for data services, and it is easier to migrate to SAP ERP as compared to other solutions. Stability is one of the main features of SAP. What makes SAP ERP better than others is that SAP has taken into consideration the business processes of different industries, such as manufacturing. They have done the research, and they know what are the best practices. They have already implemented these best practices in SAP ERP, which are readily available for a client. Clients can also customize it based on their individual needs.""There are many interfaces, so you really can build satellites around it like with other SAP stuff or even third-party stuff.""It's a good ERP system.""Its integration is most valuable.""It meets our requirements for what we need it to do in the manufacturing industry."

Cons
"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."

More Epicor ERP Cons →

"Functionality could be improved.""More integrations and built-in integrations with other environments and products are needed.""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.""SAP ERP needs to be more innovative when it comes to areas like mobility and the internet.""When evaluating the current version I am using now, the SAP GUI is old-style and needs to be replaced with something more modern and easy to use. However, the SAP GUI is very optimized for connection networks and is extremely good. Many people would like to have a WebGUI or something else to have access in a different way. Additionally, there could be some drag and drop functionality added because these features are normally in any website that this solution does not have.""There should be better support provided to be able to migrate to S/4HANA easier.""In general, a user should attend training before they can use this platform. There's definitely a learning curve. As a new user or employee, there may be some difficulty with onboarding.""It should be less complex. It should also have better integration capability. I am using the ACC version, and in this version, the integration and the communication are very difficult and complicated."
