Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We did some research and chose CloudSuite because it has the flexibility to cover a range of areas. And there were many other factors like traceability, for example, which is crucial for food production.""Infor's environment—ION and Infor OS—is better than SAP's. The load time is shorter and Infor performs much better than SAP."

More Infor CloudSuite Industrial Pros →

"I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting.""The solution is good for small businesses.""The solution is perfect for big industry and high-scale e-business transactions.""Really scalable business application suite with good technical support and straightforward patching.""It can easily be developed into an application.""Finance, HRMS, and payroll are all great, and Oracle EBS is fantastic.""I like Oracle ERP for streamlining the entire process from PRTL and invoice payments. It also has the decision and internet sale order, and my customers can correct the internet decision. It automatically converts to the internet order, and they don't need to create the entry object. They don't need to make a secondary ledger in the parent company and subsidiary. That's very helpful for internet decisions. If they get an order at the parent company, it automatically creates the sales system in the subsidiary.""The most valuable features of Oracle E-Business Suite are all the 15 to 20 modules. We use them on a day-to-day basis."

More Oracle E-Business Suite Pros →

Cons
"Infor needs to work on its documentation. For example, if I need to create a business object deployment from LVN to element, the instructions for this are insufficient. Many specific use cases aren't covered in the manual.""Pricing is always an area where there is room for improvement."

More Infor CloudSuite Industrial Cons →

"The simplicity of the user experience needs to be improved tremendously.""It would be nice to have more web services.""They don't have built-in bank integrations, which would be very helpful.""The solution needs to be updated with modern technology as it currently runs on the Java platform, JWE, which is obsolete and requires you to need an API supported browser.""Oracle E-Business Suite could improve the tables. When we remove some of them sometimes they cloud the modules into one. It becomes a little difficult to segregate.""E-Business Suite's user experience and interface could be improved.""In the future, Oracle E-Business Suite could improve by having a better UI. Competitors are providing much better interfaces.""The way things are going, Oracle is not putting much effort into their master data management. They need to look into machine data and then the integrated data domain."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I'm working for a German company, but I'm located in Portugal. In the German market, Infor's price isn't an issue for clients, but Infor is losing market share every year to SAP in Portugal. Portuguese clients find SAP more affordable. Infor needs to work on this."
  • More Infor CloudSuite Industrial Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution."
  • "This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP."
  • "The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year."
  • "Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance."
  • "At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."
  • "Licensing is on a yearly basis. There is an initial cost, and the standard fee is 22% per year."
  • "Oracle's licenses are not straightforward."
  • "The license is very expensive and I think that it needs to be cheaper to get a wider range of users or customers."

    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.”

    Mohammed G., Senior Oracle Application Consultant at a comms service provider, writes, “Oracle E-Business Suite consists of a lot of streams, such as financial and HR processes of the enterprise companies. We are using most of the Oracle financial modules, and we have an Oracle stream, FI procurement stream, and HR streams, which have a lot of applications. Oracle E-Business Suite has over 20 different modules to choose from, it is comprehensive. Additionally, the integration is very good. “
