SAP vs TranZact software: Find out which fits in your business
Lets agree if you are here in this page, either you are struggling in replacing your old heritage system or unable to decide which ERP software to adopt in your business. I do have conversations with many promoters or decision makers of multiple companies. I figured out that the decision of which ERP to install is rock hard for them. Because it can either make it or break it your processes. SAP is an obvious choice for many of the companies but it can shake your ROI if it is not perfect for you.
Choose wisely. Let me help you (Thank me later)
There are some myths that an ERP is only for large enterprises and will burn your pockets and funds to a larger extent. I would said ‘Yes’ to this scenario if we were in 2009 where there were only handful of ERPs. Now, with an advent of pocket friendly ERPs like TranZact, the notion got changed. There are ERPs specially curated for Small-Medium enterprises which helps them to cross the barrier and be a part of enormous business brands.
Also, ERP evolution has now come to the point where cloud-based ERPs are more preferable due to security, storage and scalability purpose. Keeping these in mind as well, lets dive in deeper:
Great design is having SIMPLICITY which eliminates all unnecessary details
All the great and successful softwares, be it whatsapp, paytm or any other star softwares have one thing in common. That is ‘Simplicity’. Simple user interface, Simple features and simple implementation.
SAP, being such a beautiful organised user interface lacks simplicity in terms of its features and implementation. Its huge book of features and modules might not be relevant for every company. Whereas, TranZact scores better when it comes to simplicity of the software. It is known for its user friendly easy interface, to-the-point features which will help you to keep high ROI from software investment.
CUSTOMER SERVICE is an attitude not a department
Coming to a decision to install an ERP was in itself a major task for many companies and in region like India there are after installation problems as well, like user understanding, technical issue, data entry confusions etc. The strong and robust help centre is therefore needed.
TranZact being an Indian ERP product, its after service is also excellent and caters to the customers as per their language and area preferences. Their operation team is known for great help support and problem solving in very less time. Also, they organise several webinars to let the existing users know about the launch of new features. They also communicate how to effectively use those features on their business.
As rightly said,
A great amount of essence of a product is in its duration of its IMPLEMENTATION
There are two phases in ERP implementation: Pre implementation and post implementation. Pre implementation is all about data transferring to the new system and make sure that every department and process is aligned with each other. The number of users has given access to and the system is filled with the organisation’s data and enabled the pulling of data. Post implementation process is more of correction and adjustments in work of pre implementation process. These time needs to be cut short and concise to realise the its worth.
SAP takes little extra time as compare to any other software for its implementation but they make sure they adopt ASAP methodology and do the right implementation.
New business is possible only through NETWORK and networking
There is a concept called ‘the things beyond ERP’ where ERP providers has shifted to cloud based ERP to make it remotely accessible. Both TranZact and SAP provides the cloud computing service. Whats new here is the innovative efforts by TranZact ERP where the user of the ERP can easily send POs, Quotations, offers etc. 50K+ network companies in their network can be reached directly through their advance feature. Not only this ERP streamlines the processes but also gets you new business.
