"There is a tool in Infor VISUAL that is called Costing Utilities, they should make the functionality more flexible."

More Infor VISUAL Cons →

"The initial setup is complex.""In the next release, I would like to see more technical integration for directly designed solutions on behalf of the selling process so that you can design solutions and not have to use ten or more other tools to get the solution for selling.""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.""SAP ERP is scalable. We have some five to ten thousand SAP ERP users.""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.""The user interface isn't as nice as SAP HANA's.""More integrations and built-in integrations with other environments and products are needed.""Functionality could be improved."
