We performed a comparison between Infor CloudSuite Industrial and SAP ERP based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two ERP solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"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."
"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 most valuable features are the ease of installation and the MM functionality."
"ERP is very stable."
"I have found all the modules related to finance valuable, such as account management and HR. The entire suite is very useful."
"The implementation is very straightforward."
"The solution has far more features, processes, and functionalities than we previously had."
"The solution provides good production planning."
"This is a robust solution with a lot of control measures."
"Pricing is always an area where there is room for improvement."
"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."
"In previous generations, SAP was stable and the roadmap was very predictable, but currently it's very difficult."
"I think that implementation could be simplified."
"Reporting is why most companies need to acquire business intelligence add-on solutions, and when it comes to SAP ERP, they could improve the reporting graphical representation of the data."
"SAP ERP could improve by having better integration with other platforms."
"The user interface can be more intuitive and user-friendly by having it be more menu-driven, this would be a large benefit."
"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."
"If big companies are going for SAP and they would like to install it, they should know that it still needs time. Implementation will cost a lot of money."
"One thing that is lacking in ERP is a good user interface. It is currently very clumsy and complex. Another thing is that reporting capability of SAP ERP is customizable, but it is not very good. Its development time is also very high if you require specialized technical services. If you want to do any changes to the report or develop a new report, you need people with specialized skills. Business processes are very straightforward and standardized as per the industry standards. However, the way it works is a bit complex, and you need to know a lot of things. There are different things that can be complex for a general user. A lot of information is being provided in ERP. A general user doesn't require all this information, and it creates a lot of confusion. Its learning curve is very high."
