Test automation tools for SAP ERP automation? Anything comparable to Ranorex?

I found Ranorex studio and would like to know if there are other comparable tools we could use for SAP ERP automation.

Which other tools do you recommend we check out? 

I am a testing manager at a multi-billion dollar global logistics company with tens of thousands of employees.

I am only comparing Automation software for the purpose of testing desktop and office applications for patch management. But in my research I did see a SAP automation tool from a company called Worksoft. https://www.worksoft.com/products/worksoft-certify/ . I don't certify or have ever used this tool but know it is specialized for ERP testing.

You can use UFT, Tosca or TestComplete

As an employee of Tricentis, the continuous testing company I would highly encourage you to look into our Tosca product.
Tosca has been ranked by Gartner as Leader for the last couple of years, while many of our competitors went down.
SAP testing is one of the focus areas of Tricentis Tosca.
You can find information about SAP automation with Tosca on our webpage:

The main reasons, why Tosca is the perfect solution for SAP test automation:

* With Tosca test automation you build your test cases out of modules created by scanning SAP applications.
* These modules can be combined to build test cases and can be read and adapted if needed by business users (no scripting required).
* With this approach you can dramatically increase reuse of test cases and reduce maintenance efforts for your test automation.
* Tosca allows for a risk-based analysis of your business requirements, so you can always test the most important test cases first.
* Tosca Test Case Design reduces the number of test cases by maximizing risk coverage.
* Tosca accelerators support hundreds of typical SAP use-cases out of the box
* In addition to GUI testing Tosca allows you to test SAP on API or even OSV level (to run E2E test cases successfully even if some applications are not available).

In addition, with our recent acquisition of Intellicorp, we can provide you impact analysis about changes of the SAP system, so you know which test cases you need to rerun.

You can use Testcomplete. It is also an alternative to Ranorex. But if you are testing SAP ERP I would say selenium would be the best choice.

Little background about my company so you understand my answer. We are an 'as a Service' company that designs, builds, implements, monitors, maintains Bots and AI for the SMB marketplace. We provide this to SMBs because they typically can't afford a platform like UiPath. Now, to your question. What you are talking about with regards to UiPath vs Ranorex is basically comparing apples to oranges. UiPath is a RPA solution (Robotic Process Automation) that is used in any area. It can be used in the Accounting department to consolidate AR and AP, it can be used in a business's core business (eg. I know an insurance company that is using an RPA solution to automate Claims Adjustments), and it can be used in Sales and Marketing. Ranorex is an automation solution that has a very specific purpose - automation of testing of applications after compilation. So, two different tools, one that is general purpose process automation and one that is focused specifically on test automation. I don't know the pricing of Ranorex but UiPath is quite pricey (get your own quotes but the base platform is something like $75K and then the bots have a monthly licensing fee of $1500 - $2000 (to give a comparison, our offering is a setup fee per bot of$5000 and a monthly monitoring/management fee of $500 - $1500 which has us monitoring the bot in case it breaks or needs to be updated). So keep in mind what you want to do and what type of pricing you want to deal with. Oh, and FYI, UiPath is considered the leader in the Automation space from a platform point of view.
