Pros
This product has an Excel interface so everyone was pretty comfortable using this application. When I needed to call support, they were fantastic and went above and beyond.
The application is extremely powerful in terms of data collection and consolidation leading to effective business planning.
Overall extremely pleased with the application. It was seamless in terms of installation and deployment.
Cons
It should be noted that the errors were due to settings that came by default.
Limited documentation on scripts. Training on scripts is very specialized and intensive.
Overall, I would say that functionality of this software is greatly limited by the slow performance. I am constantly getting errors that are complete gibberish and never get resolved.

Implementation and daily use of SAP for management of manufacturing resources

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The software can be used to account for every individual material/resource that is used in a manufacturing process. It offers true end-to-end cost control. I was a member of the team that implemented SAP on a local level at manufacturing sites, training people who would be front-line users in a manufacturing environment. Since then I have worked in local management, where my responsibilities would include reconciling and consolidating material use on SAP software.

Cons

Implementation of SAP for a large business must be done to an exceptionally high standard. Many businesses are likely to underestimate the amount of discipline and attention to detail that is required in the roll-out of this sort of high level ERP software. Mistakes that are made at this early stage will create long lasting snags that in my experience have taken up to 3 years to iron out. I should add that my organisation did also require a lot of custom features to be set-up which is likely to have been a contributing factor to the difficulties we experienced.

Legacy tool

Reviewed 4 years ago

The planning capability provides additional value to our supply chain

Pros

All of our systems are integrated to feed into this system. It is sort of our one stop shop when it comes to Supply Chain planning.

Cons

The user interface seems outdated. The functionality is confusing for beginners and we have to spend a lot of time training new employees.

SAP Business Planning & Consolidation (formerly OutlookSoft)

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was the administrator, so I would do the installation and the business owner would do necessary training. Coming from an accounting background I was able to give guidance on setting up hierarchies in the Chart of Accounts (COA) which was helpful to some of the managers using the software. I supported everyone form the analysts to Vice Presidents

Pros

This was very easy for the users to learn. This product has an Excel interface so everyone was pretty comfortable using this application. When I needed to call support, they were fantastic and went above and beyond. They walked me through an install in our test environment (all hours).

Cons

It is necessary to copy off old structures. At my company, the structure would change almost every year (Having the US divided up into 6 segments, then 4 then 5). This made it a bit cumbersome when comparing different structures
