Hard to be an expert, takes one year to kkow almost everything in just one module. And management reporting is the only weakness and needs to be improved.

stable and functional economic system

2020-07-31

I am an economist at the company, so I am completely dependent on SAP, from the point of view of accounting, we have never had a problem, only the warehouse management had to be fine-tuned according to the relevant legislation.

Pros

The program has a good price-performance ratio compared to local programs. It is used all over the world, so I do not have a problem with certain implementations with foreign suppliers. Thanks to strong product support, it is possible to adapt the program to local conditions and requirements within one country.

Cons

I lack a more distinctive user interface, but SAPU programmers are able to customize them for you.

Cons

It can handle only an activity list.

My opinion about SAP Business One

2018-11-26

My experience with the application has been satisfactory, that is why, by offering a solution to manage different areas of a company in a single tool, I recommend it.

Pros

What I like most about the application is that it is very complete since it can be able to integrate different areas of a company such as production, purchases, banks, billing, inventories, among others.

Cons

Something I do not like about the application is that you can not control the payroll of a company.

We needed a tool that could fully integrate our operations.

Pros

Pros

Underlying SAP HANA database allows for complex business analytics.

You can not affect the database directly trough SQL queries, so if you want to develop new functions inside the app, you have to use the SDK that includes method for each object in the system.
