Because of some developments in our company, we have recently been involved in meetings with other ERP VARs (value added resellers), and it seems not one has much nice to say about their vendor.
In the case of Microsoft, the consensus is that in South Africa they are fairly clueless about ERP marketing or the ERP market, especially the mid-market. No one relies on them for leads, and only take a Microsoft person to a prospect to provide some confidence to the prospectee.
For SAP, the Business One lead generation logging procedure is rigid and anti-competitive, and customers are dictated to by SAP on which VAR they can use.
Makes me wonder if Syspro isn’t a better choice for the mid-market as they have been there for so long.
