It's a good product. I would recommend it because it is stable. And if you do it the right way, by following the rules, then you get what you want from it. SAP is very strict in the way you make your next step. I would rate it an eight out of ten. Not a ten because there's always room for improvement. It could be more like Informatica. They are graphic. It's very easy to put your transaction data in a graphic way to your model. In a graphic way, Informatica is better but overall I would recommend NetWeaver.

Before we initiated SAP, we had to decide where ShopVue would end and where SAP would take over. The two software solutions are not compatible. ShopVue is labor and attendance, which is one thing that SAP didn't have. We had to make the two communicate together. ShopVue is easy to use. I am surprised that more companies don't invest in it. When you look at the screen, you can hit that button and it will do something. Don't give up, the answer is there somewhere. Picasso said, "Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working." Because of its versatility, I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

I don't have too much experience with the solution, except from a procurement perspective. I'd advise others to try to understand the extent of how much they want to use it. If they decide to go on-premises, they need to consider how much they will use the application and for the data they will want or need. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. We're not completely satisfied, but from a procurement perspective, it's a fair rating. If the integration capabilities were better, I'd rate it a bit higher.

My advice to others would be to know what they want to implement and then to leave it in the hands of the external team. I think it's a complete solution - if you want to do something, it has that module or that solution. It is a very holistic approach. The solution is not very easy to use, though, as it takes a lot from you to understand how to do everything. It's not something that you can learn in six months or one year. It is a constant learning process. I would, therefore, like if they were to simplify the program to make it easier to use. On a scale from one to 10, I would give a nine. I think it's a very good product.

Currently I would rate it as an eight out of 10, because it is at its end of life and I would like to see more out of the product. When searching for this type of solution, you have to come up with the requirements of what exactly you want to achieve. Then, you need to go through the tools available in the marketplace and analyze each one based on specific criteria to see which ones you would get the best deal on. Aside from that, it comes down to cost and what you want to achieve with the solution. One of the reasons that we started with NetWeaver was to do some product logging, and it ended up being the full end-to-end solution. It came in for another requirement initially, and we ended up using it for much more. Typically, you need to look at what you can do with it other than the current needs and anticipated use cases. Local support is the most important criteria when selecting a vendor. We have to have bodies on the ground that can come in and assist us. Therefore, local support is at the top of the list. Additionally, the overall flexibility of the vendor itself. They need to be good at introducing new features or advising us on how to meet the business requirements.

We primarily use the solution for our day to day business, and we use the solution to analyze the data and arrive at actions based on that.

SAP handles all of our inventory and our raw materials. We haven't found another solution that was for time and attendance all in one. We have used ShopVue for our time and attendance and we use SAP for the back end. It keeps all of the materials moving. Anything that is a product that moves, we have some way of searching for it in SAP. I take a particular product, then go into the stock requirments and I type the product name or number. That will give me the current status and everything that is happening with it from within the same SAP requirement list, which is MD04. That is SAP's internal name for this page. I can go from there to the history where I can see the orders that are coming in, as well as the orders that are waiting. It's all on one very useful screen. It's a very useful tool to be able to get from point A to point B.

Generally, the solution is expensive to update and integrate with other solutions.
