We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The user interface is very good.""The most valuable feature is that it works according to how the Internet works.""The most valuable feature in NetSuite ERP is the user interface.""It's integrated into everything well so you can navigate and use it in a very simple way.""I would say that the solution is highly configurable.""The project management aspect and the timesheets are valuable, especially for ensuring that our milestone billings are automated properly. From a manufacturing perspective, it is more to do with the entire management of the inventory, the overall finance, consolidation of books of accounts, and managing the profit and loss in a more effective manner.""Every year, they release a new version.""I have found there to be many features, such as manufacturing, accounting, financials, inventory, and purchasing."

There is plenty of features and the manufacturing and finance aspect of the solution are strong.""The most valuable features of Business ByDesign are the integration of its modules, analytics, and dashboards.""I like its modern approach. It is very modern and new technology.""ByDesign's best features are its speed, real-time data, and reporting."

Cons
"In terms of the main improvement to NetSuite is the talent itself. It's grown so fast and there are about 25,000 companies running on it, and it's a relatively newer system compared to other competitors. It's growing so fast that the talent base in the partner organization (there's about 200 of them), is pretty thin.""If they could provide more integration options to connect with different products, that would be ideal.""If you do go through an implementor, you need to be careful that they are actual implementors and not just resellers.""NetSuite ERP's UI could be improved. There are some features that are very complex that do not have to be. There are some aspects of the solution that could be simplified and this can include the documentation. Since it's a very complex tool, you expect to have great detailed documentation to help you implement it.""It would be great if they offered localization for Central America.""The solution could be more stable.""The solution is not user-friendly and it is complex to use.""What needs to be improved is the development in the other areas and other businesses that can use NetSuite."

More NetSuite ERP Cons →

"The Arabic localization is neglected. It should have an Arabic interface. It lacks Arabic translation or support from right to left.""SAP Business ByDesign can improve the flexibility and user-friendliness of the reporting during the implementations. Customizing the reports inside the device requires a lot of knowledge and most of the time a developer level is needed. For example, if you want to have a more specific reporting layout.""SAP Business ByDesign is a very vast product, but it has to be a bit more centralized. All the models need to be more centralized for a better experience.""ByDesign could be improved by making screen modifications easier."
