Great for real-time bank reconciliations

Reviewed on 2022/01/19

Pros

Used for monthly purposes on bank reconciliations and financial reporting.
The best is, it shows real-time data of bank balances and can generate multiple reports simultaneously.
Gives accurate data and easy to clear items for Accounts Payable.

Cons

Lots of features (supply chain and HR) that you don't use in accountancy and not very easy to master.

Implementation of SAP Bydesign across our companies means we have one system across all companies so reporting can be on a local or global level. The gold partner support is excellent and ongoing system improvements good.

Pros

Reliable cloud based adaptable ERP software that is ideal for multi-company, multi-country, multi-curency business management. Out teams accross the globe can access live data across warehouses, production, logistics, sales and finance. Enable as much or as little as required in implementation. Web services enable it to talk to other systems if needed.

Cons

Occasional minor back end issues take some time to resolve if they are not business critical. The CRM module and app are not user friendly and not feature rich like some other systems avaliable. We have integrated our SAP Bydesyn with Hubspot CRM

Alternatives Considered

Kinetic, Dynamics 365 and NetSuite

Reasons for Choosing SAP Business ByDesign

We use Sage Accounts, Orderwise Stock Management and Goldmine CRM, and had to have separate systems in different countries. We needed a multi currency ERP solution, we looked at 5 systems and settled on SAP Bydesign

Switched From

Kinetic, Dynamics 365 and NetSuite

Reasons for Switching to SAP Business ByDesign

Had all the functionality and was suitable for an SME, whereas most of the other multi currency systems were too large, and would have cost too much and taken too long in implementation.

Do not even think about implementing this without the proper staff, who are also trained

I do not like it and find it difficult to work with.

I do not like it and find it difficult to work with.

Pros

SAP is very robust and I suspect with proper training and the correct implementation team, it would really help with the everyday functioning of the company.

Cons

I am not a fan of SAP BYD because it is cumbersome and difficult to use without intense proper training. It is European based and not intuitive at all, so those combined make it difficult to find what you need and get it to work correctly for you. I'm not shy about trying things on my own, but I find myself giving up and reaching out to our AMS team, which results in charges for help.

Early, we didn't have a method to monitor the cost of production, the cost for repair and material movement. Also, there was no link between the transactions.

Pros

This is the best ERP system which I used in my life. There are a lot of unique features in SAP. Among them, the Relationship Map and Query Generator are the best part I like to use. Via relationship, very much easy to get the idea of the transaction because it shows the links between the transaction. It easily gets the decision.

Cons

In Production, there is no way to get item-wise cost for the items.

Reasons for Switching to SAP Business ByDesign

It cost effictive and attractive features in it.
