"The solution overall is very versatile and flexible, especially compared to other products."
"One of our favorite features is the "Info-Zone", which provides operational intelligence in flight and in context to guide both business users and support teams to productivity."
"The product is quite flexible."
"The best feature is the maintenance module, which is essentially an industry-specific workflow designed with a manufacturing module as per industry standards. It's very precise and specific without having complex functionalities. It's straightforward. Field Service Management is definitely a wonderful product that IFS has developed because it caters to field services. The energy and utility sectors can answer their business needs using the software."
"Some of the strengths are Enterprise Management Solutions and the series of Management solutions which is number one in Gartner's report and has been for the last five years."
"Makes it easier to reach and read data."
"The tool selection is really robust and scalable for multiple scenarios."
"The solution links everything and allows us to integrate into our entire supply chain."
"It is stable and scalable. In the S4HANA plain version, they have new dashboards and things like that."
"The guidance SAP offers for implementing the product is clear and the online resources are great."
"The user interface can be improved. When you're clicking through the screens, there are some icons or symbols that really need updating and would be more useful and noticeable if they are aesthetically pleasing."
"We would like to see AI-driven CSI functions built into the tool that would allow us to quickly tie our improvement goals to metrics and activities, so Assyst will suggest the next steps to help us get closer to our goals."
"The integration is a bit complex, and post-implementation support services need to be improved. They have a service center based out of Sri Lanka. The support aspect is good, but the response time is a little slower than we anticipated. In the next release, it would be better if Warehouse Management could be improvised. They have a product line that's a data warehouse management system, but it's still premature and requires a bit of enhancement."
"It would be ideal if, in the future, the product could incorporate IoT and blockchain elements. We'd like to explore more of these types of features going forward."
"There are certain digital features that need to be incorporated, such as IOP."
"They can improve the interface. It has a client-server kind of interface, which is kind of old."
"When it comes to the SAP PM material's module, it would be nice to see the inclusion of predictive analytics."
"There have been some pain points in moving from SAP to S/4HANA, but the company seems to be staying on top of those issues."
"The initial setup can be complex, depending on the environment."
"UX design is not flexible and lacks compatibility with mobile devices."
