Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The complete product suite is good. The financials are good, it is the best product I've been working with is Oracle Financial. Supply chain manufacturing is very comprehensive and the connectivity, between all the modules, is seamless. They are all communicated well with one another.""The order management is excellent.""Their great technical support is one of the most valuable features.""I think one of the best use cases is centralizing supplier and customer data into our finance system. We identified there were so many duplicate suppliers and customers and so a lot of time was spent reporting.""Great finance modules and customization.""It can be an essential solution for those who can not just push to the cloud because they have critical data restrictions.""If I want to manage many parts of my organization, such as finances, proceedings, or supply chain I would typically need to buy many different solutions. However, with Oracle E-Business Suite, it is all that is needed. This ERP system has many modules.""It's highly customizable."

"It's simple to use and very direct.""The solution is user-friendly in comparison with Oracle.""This is the most efficient ERP that is in the market right now.""It is quite simple, and it is suitable for medium and small businesses.""The document search feature is very good.""Less complicated than other similar solutions.""For us, the most useful feature of Business One is Material Requirements Planning (MRP).""We bought all licenses for the whole package in the very beginning, and now we're just paying for 404 licensed maintenance. It's a standard fee. Of course, we still pay partners for implementation."

Cons
"It would be nice to have more web services.""Administration takes some effort. Administrating the technology stack is not so complex but application aware database administration and following the new methodologies like online patching can be a little complex and time consuming. Oracle should ease the administrators jobs and do some innovation on this administration area as well. Oracle Autonomous Database is Oracle's leading technology these days. Using a similar approach, application stack may become a little more self-managing.""The interface is pretty old.""The deployment of the Oracle E-Business Suite was simple. I have done many deployments and I find it simple, but for others, it might not be easy.""One issue with the product is because it build on a lot of older technologies, there is a substantial technical debt in the system.""I would like an end-to-end in terms of processes. There are different modules, however, there's not that end-to-end that we are looking for in terms of process automation.""Oracle is not keeping up on development of the on-premises version of this product as they are concentrating on cloud solutions.""There are some business-specific processes still not implemented."

More Oracle E-Business Suite Cons →

"The user interface could be improved with drag-and-drop functionality that it currently lacks.""The installation process could be easier. They should have better tools to improve the effectiveness of the installation.""There are possibilities to extend its functionality. Things such as Quality Management System (QMS) and Payroll are currently not a part of the product. These things are needed.""It is limiting in terms of the in-between communication for manufacturing. We are suffering from a lot of issues in production. We are now considering S/4HANA, and we are also looking for some customized tools to integrate with SAP Business One.""I am not sure if it has an HR and Payroll functionality, but it would be helpful and make it a more complete ERP if they could put the HR and Payroll functionality in it.""The solution could improve by adding HR and payroll, and consolidation should be included by default.""We would like a mobile version of this for sales exhibits, etc. We would also like more personalization features to personalize it for our organization.""Business One doesn't have a proper master data management function."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "In order to minimize the implementation and consultancy costs, business lines should have proper definitions. They need to have a proper way of retrieving their data, which should be structured well."
  • "Both the current projects and future projects should be defined well. Licensing should be done according to current and near future plans."
  • "USD $100,000 annually."
  • "Considering the market at the moment, Oracle needs to adjust the pricing of this solution."
  • "This product is more expensive if you compare it to SAP."
  • "The pricing of the solution is at about $700-$750 per year."
  • "Licensing and costing of Oracle EBS is very complex. We recommend to use a system integrator during the negotiation process since Oracle sales representatives sometime do not know the actual minimum requirements and may oversell the necessary licenses through ignorance."
  • "At our various customers, the software tends to pay for itself in less than two years."

  • "Business One is reasonable considering the functionality."
  • "In terms of price, it's fair, but the problem is with AMC."
  • "Its price is reasonable. People are able to spend that much."
  • "Its licensing model is good. There is a one-off payment for the software license, and after that, you only need to pay the annual maintenance fee. Compared to other cloud-based systems, this cost model is quite reasonable for SMEs."
  • "We pay annually. It is around 800 a month."
  • "We feel that the licensing fees are a bit on the higher side."
  • "We compared the Microsoft solution with Oracle NetSuite, as they have a price decrease. It is, however, not that much cheaper, and the price is comparable to SAP."
  • "Its price is reasonable. We have about 200 licenses. We have to pay every year for the license."
