Pros: SAP is one of the most recognized and trusted brands within the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software industry.
ByDesign is offered in four enterprise software categories: customer relationship management (CRM), financials, professional services automation (PSA), and supply chain management (SCM). These solutions each include a combination of different modules, and they can be acquired as stand-alone capabilities as well. The entire ERP software suite includes the following:

Customer relationship management (CRM)
Accounting and financials
Project management
Supply chain management (SCM)
Supplier relationship management
Human resources (HR)/payroll
Analytics
Compliance management.

This is something covers all aspects of business relation model.

Cons: SAP is a cloud based technology and initially it has targeted toward SMEs with 25+ users, the solution can be used by organizations with as few as 10 users. The ideal range is 25-500 users, but the cloud scalability should facilitate more users if required.

Overall: SAP on-premise systems, human capital management (HCM) and payroll functions include payroll automation, core HR, talent management, HR service delivery, strategic workforce planning, workforce analytics, payroll, workforce deployment, employee file management, organizational visualization, and HR outsourcing.
Business ByDesign CRM is often a starting point for SAP's cloud customers. CRM provides a relatively simple gateway for first time cloud adopters who can then add other SAP SaaS functions over time.

Comments: Overall, a very robust and insightful ERP system that connects all departments and ensures workflows and processes are being done correctly.

Pros: The fact that it's cloud-based is great for getting insights from any device, anywhere. Also, the extensive reports you're able to generate gives you great real-time data of your KPIs.

Cons: The customer support could use a little improvement in terms of data migration and system implementation.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you partner with a company whose expertise is in implementing this software into an organization.

Comments: I have been using SAP ByD for 2+ years now. We have the system in use for 3 separate companies, worldwide. We use the Fixed Assets module, Travel and Expenses, Cost Accounting, Manufacturing, Sales. It handles everything quite well.

Pros: The thinking is done for us. Other software would require some background programming, this one has it all updated to the current government agency settings.

Cons: The freezing on screens, when I try to run specific reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: Worth the investment streamlined everything for us.

Comments: It's a one of the best ERP solution from SAP for small to midsized companies. It's cloud based ERP which reduces the implementation cost, and you can customize the way you like it, as well as flexible integration with other products. The UI is very user friendly too.

Cons: Some times it is very slow

Comments: I have been working with this product for almost 2 years now. Most of my knowledge is self-taught from the online documents. This system is as robust as you wish it to be. The thinking has been done. Language packs, which apply in all modules, Country-specific financial rules that are updated constantly (IRS Guidelines for Expense Reporting for example), auto calculations, multi-currency use within one transaction. A counter part in Germany can operate in German, while all of mine can be in English when I am troubleshooting their issues, I think is outstanding. SAP is constantly updating, they have a great team backing the product, it is very personable user experience in my opinion. We use it for Order to Cash. We use the Supply Chain set up, full Financials. Production of Materials, Purchasing, Customer Service, just not POS. Although it has the ability, our business does not operate that way.

Pros: The process is built in, it is native to the operation of the system. SAP's been in the business long enough to be able to take all of the success from Enterprise ERP applications that they have built, and merge this into an online application. The product is very versatile for what I would think many styles of business. I personally enjoy the idea of not having to program the system to react a specific way, I work through the process in a test, using the online documentation, some time with an SAP Partner (Consulting Company), but the hours spent there are little. We also have the additional SDK, so we can write some personalization to the product if we wish to. The SAP Support tools are wonderful, there is probably too many resources to reach out to.

Cons: Not available in HTML in the production environments yet. Some users have been testing out the HTML in the test tenants. It is completely different layout. We would love to be able to drag & drop attachments instead of having to browse to them.

Recommendations to other buyers: I personally would recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade or start out with an ERP / MRP. This tool is very robust, you can bring on one module at a time, and all different implementation partners know what they are doing, as SAP validates their abilities first. This is a very well-thought out product.

Pros: SAP has more than 40 years of best business practices built into the software. Then, to have a cloud-based product that reduces IT infrastructure, and keeps my business information where I need it, when I need it, is truly a win-win for any business.

Cons: If there was one thing I did not like about SAP, it would be their time-to-market. They are consistently 6 months behind. However, I also think this is one of their strengths - which is to not bring a product to market before it is ready. SAP has always done well in this regard.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do you research. Make sure your processes are in line with supporting an ERP. Ask yourself if your business is ready for ERP. If so, look at SAP. It is not just for big companies. It is for your company.
