Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is highly configurable. You have a choice in terms of how you want to run it. You can run it in your own data center, in a private cloud, or in a public cloud. The choice is really up to the customer.""With the new versions, it has become very user-friendly. We have integration with mobiles, and we have cloud-based solutions. There are a lot of things that can be done by front-end users without technical knowledge. They can create reports without having to do any coding, and it's very good now.""The solution is stable.""The most valuable feature is the user experience, where you can create your own queries, it sends you alerts, and it's very flexible.""The solution is very customizable according to business needs.""I have found the solutions best features to be financial procurement, inventory, and manufacturing.""I think it is strong in sales, inventory, and pricing.""We did not have any problems with the scalability of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne."

"Control and governance are the best features.""This is a robust and feature-rich solution.""This product is very scalable and easy to expand.""I have found all the modules related to finance valuable, such as account management and HR. The entire suite is very useful.""SAP is already working on improvements by doing annual releases with enhancements.""ERP can help manage all enterprise resources. It brings them together and provides some analytical data to inform management decisions.""It has a lot of integrity of data, and it is fast. All the users feel that they can trust this data. So, data integrity is the most important value of SAP.""The solution is very mature."

More SAP ERP Pros →

"We found that the system was unable to address many of our concerns, especially when it comes to project management.""The solution could be easier to implement. However, the complexity was in our internal processes meeting our country's requirements. Every country has a slightly different process, taxation, and rules. That was the difficult part, not the solution itself. I expect our experience would have been more or less the same with any ERP, such as SAP, Navision, or Dynamics.""We originally used EnterpriseOne for preventative maintenance, but it is not very good at that so we migrated to Maximo for that task.""Something that could be included is a supply chain management system. That's what we're looking for.""If they can research and make the installation part easier or more user-friendly, it would be nice.""I would like to see the HR features enhanced with respect to localization for South Africa and other countries.""The flexibility of workflows and multi-industry implementation support should be improved.""Financial side could be expanded by bringing in things like the IMS."

More JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Cons →

"I'm only working on the front end with ERP's user interface, which isn't very easy for end-users. It's an old-school interface, so it's often challenging to find what you need.""It's difficult to code; structured language is difficult.""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.""The user interface can be more intuitive and user-friendly by having it be more menu-driven, this would be a large benefit.""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.""The user interface isn't as nice as SAP HANA's.""Technical support is an area that is in need of improvement.""ERP could use better integration with other systems."
