I'm looking for the best test automation tool for SAP. We have about 600 users and the tests are mostly functional.
I see that in a lot of reviews Worksoft is the most popular choice but is it the best and reasonably priced product?

Reasonably priced is an interesting term. I'd suggest looking at TCO as a better metric and include the cost of both building and maintaining the automated test suite.

Microfocus UFT and LoadRunner are doing this for a long time. The new player is Tricentis but I didn't saw it working yet.
Tricentis and SAP have announced a strategic technology partnership that has the Tricentis products now part of the SAP pricebook.
More importantly though, Tricentis Tosca is being used by SAP to test their own releases. Tosca will replace the SAP Component-Based Test Automation engine and the Tricentis LiveCompare product is replacing the SAP Change Impact Analysis tooling in SolMan.
Tricentis developers are being co-located with the SAP development team so the Tricentis products will keep pace with SAP releases. The press release is at https://www.tricentis.com/news...
In my experience with SAP Core Banking implementation, the best tool to automate without pain and with a strength of agility and support, have been the Microfocus ALM tools (UFT One, UFT One Mobile, LoadRunner, Quality Control Manager) this tool since it emerged in Mercury, and then when it was acquires by HP, advanced too much in functionality and now with Microfocues it is the best tool for all testing life cicle.
Micro Focus delivers a wide portfolio of ADM products that include support for the most common SAP platforms, and helps organizations to manage and execute their SAP transformations at speed and quality. Customers who choose the Micro Focus portfolio know that they are drawing on a long and close partnership between SAP and Micro Focus, which has been focused from the start on ensuring customer success and satisfaction throughout complex SAP transformations.
Organizations manage their back office systems with tools such as
ALM, but as they modernize the front office, they are moving to ALM
Octane to manage the lifecycle of the mobile interfaces, cloud, and
web systems that access them. The front office and the back office are
connected through their data flow, and hence, the lifecycle management
systems must be aligned, through synchronization between ALM
Octane and ALM. Test, defect, and other artefacts can be synchronized
transparently, with both systems being kept updated in real-time. While
there may be different teams working on the front and back end development,
they can collaborate and ensure that nothing is missed.
