2. User Training
The use of the software is to make any process easy and fast for its users. SAP solutions automate and make business processes fast and trackable easily. But they are unable to make it easy for their users because the Users require lots of Training first to understand and use it. And many a time, Trained SAP professionals are hired by companies to make use of the software.

In addition to that, they organize Ask Me Anything sessions and separate Expert Video Call sessions with their customers. Also, they every time maintain a CSAT score of 4.2 to 4.5 out of 5. And it shows that how much their customers are satisfied with them.
SAP products are beneficial to Multi-National Companies (MNCs) and Big Corporations. And that is why their products are Valued accordingly, which is very high compared to other options available in the market. Also, the upfront cost and maintenance cost is high and not suitable for small and medium scale businesses.
TranZact offers the product with a Freemium policy. The upfront cost is zero for it. And the Maintainance cost is also very low when compared to SAP and other market players. Also, there is no need to hire trained professionals to use it.
From the above discussion, it is very much clear that SAP is helpful but complex software. The cost and time for setting it up are very much high. And it is no doubt great for the Big companies but not suitable for SMEs and Traditional Businesses. Although SAP has introduced SAP Business One from medium scale enterprises.
