JustFoodERP and Microsoft Dynamics vs. SAP
SAP has long been recognized as a ‘standard’ ERP solution for the food industry, but today’s competitive and ever changing marketplace often means standard isn’t good enough anymore - you need an ERP software provider who understands your specific industry needs and challenges. Many food industry businesses have been selecting JustFoodERP over SAP for the following reasons:
JustFoodERP and Microsoft Dynamics can scale with your business. Microsoft Dynamics provides affordable scalability for your growing business. With benchmarked performance up to 2,250 users and rich functionality across financials, supply chain management, and customer relationship management, you can be confident in the ability of Microsoft Dynamics to meet the needs of your business now, and as it grows in the future. Using Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services, Microsoft Dynamics provides enterprise-level reporting, flexible decision-making support, and timely, relevant business insight at a low cost with significantly high usability and flexibility. JustFoodERP builds on this, giving you all the insight into your business operations that you need to make real-time, informed decisions, and can even help with critical tasks such as performing instant Product Recalls.
Microsoft Dynamics provides a low cost of ownership. JustFoodERP and Microsoft Dynamics have partnered to cost-effectively support the changing requirements that are frequently necessary for customers to adapt, grow, and maintain a competitive edge in their business. Independent research has demonstrated that Microsoft Dynamics offers a high return on investment (ROI) and low overall cost of ownership. Microsoft Dynamics has also designed their licensing to be cost-effective. It is based on concurrent users versus named users and has no imposed user minimum or maximum, so it evolves as your needs do for the life of your business. JustFoodERP is focused on ensuring the unique business needs of the food industry are understood and met. To that end, all R&D dollars are spent addressing issues specifically related to the food business, including feedback collected constantly from our client base and our Customer Advisory Panel.
Doing your research is essential when evaluating ERP vendors to select the right fit for your business. If you are looking at SAP as a potential solution, then consider asking these questions to help you make an informed decision:
SAP may offer a fixed-price, fixed-scope implementation of SAP Business All-in-One. What specifics actually govern this offer? Will I have to conform my business processes to match SAP's ideas of how to run a business in order to get the benefits of the rapid implementation? How will the cost and time of implementation be affected if I want to have the solution modified to meet my unique business practices?
Do I have to license named users instead of concurrent users or user sessions? What is the difference, and what do you see as the pros and cons of each?
Is NetWeaver middleware required for integration with SAP and non-SAP systems? If so, how will this affect the cost and complexity of my implementation?
What does a typical All-in-One support team look like? How many administrators? How many developers? How many support personnel?
JustFoodERP offers a complete product roadmap and upgrade path, providing customers with a stream of new features over the lifetime of use. Through our Customer Care Program, clients are provided with upgrades at no cost.
Most importantly, JustFoodERP is, as the name implies, completely focused on the needs of the food industry - not pharmaceutical, CPG, chemical, or any other industry. We know food companies and their business needs and challenges are unique, and that is why we continually grow and focus our expertise in one industry – your industry.
