"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."
"It is more or less a very, very smooth and seamless product. Day by day they are increasing their technology features and they are keen to resolve the issues. India has a complex business scenario and SAP is thinking about that and resolving the issues day by day."
"The most valuable feature is the detail in all of the processes. The solution captures our policies and enables us to implement our policies in SAP. There are different models that address our needs."
"The in-memory processing capability is most valuable."
"S/4HANA is so much faster today than it was before. High performance is one of the best features, but the backbone of S/4HANA is its integration capabilities. They've also shifted to a focus on user experience."
"I have found the most valuable features are the interface, which is very good for all users, and the database performance is good."
"One of the most valuable features, which we used the most, was the FI module, for finance. It involved controlling, account receivables, account payables, and complete financial steering."
"The most valuable feature is the perfect end-to-end integration."
"The solution is flexible, has a lot of functionality, and has the ability to deliver more security than other comparable solutions."
"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."
"The solution could have a better user experience. However, they are working a lot on the user experience and they have come up with various applications, such as mobile applications. This was lacking over the last two years."
"This is a costly solution."
"This product would be improved by adding more reports."
"Documentation could be improved."
"The install can be difficult. There's something called secondary sales solutions that is not there in SAP. We need to have third-party tools to integrate to do the automatization. The two parts are missing on the secondary sales solution and automation."
"This solution works with the configuration, if the prerequisites are very clear and can be configured it works perfectly. If you need to simulate something, as a predictive tool this kind of simulation is not very accurate and it has limitations. This is something that could improve."
"I'm not a big fan of SAP S/4HANA because it needs a lot of hardware. It is really fast, but it needs a lot of hardware. The hardware for S/4HANA is too expensive."
"While the solution contemplates a competitively priced model, its pricing could be cheaper."
