We performed a comparison between Netsuite ERP and SAP S4HANA based on our users’ reviews in four categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison of Results: Based on the parameters we compared, Netsuite ERP seems to be the superior solution. Our reviewers find that the questions concerning the simplicity of AP S4HANA’s deployment process, stability, scalability, and the effectiveness of the technical support that it provides make it a riskier investment than Netsuite ERP.
"I am impressed with the product's ease of use. It also helps us reduce the techstack."
"We use it for the projects we do in the telecom industry."
"NetSuite ERP is a user-friendly cloud-based solution that posts into the GL in real time. You can see your profitability at the order level."
"I like the ease of setup and customization of forms."
"As NetSuite ERP is a cloud product, a valuable feature I found in it is the very friendly user interface. You can set up shortcuts within the applications for frequently used reports or navigation. You can also customize dashboards in NetSuite ERP. Another feature I found valuable in the solution is good reporting. It has many industry-standard reports focused on finance and inventory. I also like the seamless switching between production and test environments and that you can customize the environments within NetSuite ERP. For example, you can put banners on your test and production environments to differentiate or segregate the logins to prevent mistakes. The solution is pretty easy to use and navigate, and it's more of a lightweight software. I like that it's a cloud product, so work is done on the front end rather than the back end. There's also a community for NetSuite ERP where you can raise your queries and issues. You'll find other people sharing experiences about common issues so you can get quick fixes from the community."
"The most valuable aspect of NetSuite ERP is the multi-subsidiary portion, it is the strongest across all the other ERPs. If you want to do consolidations, it works a lot better than other tools."
"The initial setup is easy."
"Every year, they release a new version."
"S4HANA is very scalable - we use it across seven or eight factories, and everything is running fine."
"The most valuable feature is the detail in all of the processes. The solution captures our policies and enables us to implement our policies in SAP. There are different models that address our needs."
"S/4HANA offers a lot of additional capability with respect to performance due to its in-built architecture for many functions including finance, production, quality, manufacturing, inventory or sales distribution and logistics."
"One of the things I like about it is its well-integrated and secure nature."
"At present, it seems very stable because it is in the cloud."
"It is more or less a very, very smooth and seamless product. Day by day they are increasing their technology features and they are keen to resolve the issues. India has a complex business scenario and SAP is thinking about that and resolving the issues day by day."
"It is a very scalable solution. We have enterprise-level businesses using this solution."
"S/4HANA falls under a single terminal. We can easily access the data, and the performance is good."
"An area for improvement in NetSuite ERP is its accounting functionality because it has certain limitations. You can't maintain sub-ledgers or post accrued expenses in sub-ledger forms, so you'll need to post in journals. The pricing is another area that can be improved in NetSuite ERP because the pricing was lower when it wasn't part of Oracle, but after Oracle acquired Netsuite and NetSuite ERP was offered as a cloud service, the price went up."
"The solution's initial setup process was complex."
"Improvement-wise, it should be more customizable. Currently, you can't enhance the product yourself in terms of development for any applications unless you've got a very strong and big development team. Those are the skills that are in very short supply."
"NetSuite is good for data management, but it's missing payroll features."
"The pricing is high."
"The product should improve its warehouse management solution."
"The manufacturing and planning side could be improved. That part isn't up to date. NetSuite could be easier to integrate in general."
"In NetSuite ERP, they should focus on offering better customization options."
"We found that the implementing partners themselves are struggling with S4HANA's features. It's not an exact translation of the older ECC, so SAP has taken a new route to do things with S4HANA. Maybe it's a good product, but the implementing partners also like to have an in-depth understanding of the full feature set the product offers."
"The user interface should be much more convenient and user-friendly."
"Small businesses that have a small user base find this solution too expensive."
"The solution is complex technically because both an old and a new path exist."
"We are always looking for a better user experience. We would like to see more consolidation in SAP S4HANA because of all the financial compliance and regulatory changes."
"There should be an easier way to migrate customers from all versions to SAP S/4HANA."
"There are some problems with the support provided for the solution, so it is not quite easy. It takes some time for them to offer us support."
"The solution could have a better user experience. However, they are working a lot on the user experience and they have come up with various applications, such as mobile applications. This was lacking over the last two years."
