Magtatanong lang mga sir, I need an opinion on the the business application software. maybe a question to all software developer/engineer. I am contemplating business solution(EPR) for my company and somebody mention to me that there are 3 companies that offer this kind of software. So far, I manage to get some info from SAP , Oracle and People soft. I wonder if someone can tell the pro's and con's of this softwares. Any information will be much appreciated.
This is kind of late. But for the others who may need the info.
ERPs are very expensive to start with. SAP and Microsoft Dynamics, the two leaders in the industry, will cost you 400K USD on the license alone. Installation is different. Training is different.
Coke and San Miguel uses SAP R3. The cheaper version which is SAP B1 has limitations.
What I suggest for businessmen like you is to get a consultant first ( for a fee of 20k or more a month ) and tell him/her your requirements then let him help you with your decision on what software to get. You may be buying a very expensive software yet in the end you only get to use 20% of the capabilities of the application.
I'm a software developer myself and I work for a company that sells a mini-ERP . It all depends on what you need as a business. The ERPs in the market are very generic applications and your business may have peculiar needs, so you are better off with a local company to meet your needs.
