Pros

It does help create meaningful process instructions that helps the manufacturing process flow more smoothly. It helps track shipments and OTD which is beneficial to our organization.
I like the integration with QuickBooks for small businesses, I recommend this option instead of using the accounting in JobBoss. I am extremley happy with the way this works.
Support staff are nice and helpful and they always walk me through anything I've mucked up. The program is easy to use, it's not real complicated, more user friendly then some packages out there.

Pros

It is really great at helping us track our costs and meet our delivery standards. It connects natively to Shopify which is a big bonus and helps us pull for our orders more efficiently.
It's great to be able to log in on any computer without having to install software, and it's done an amazing job of keeping our inventory tidy and up-to-date.
We ran into a few hiccups at the beginning and the support team was very responsive and helpful in helping us remedy our issues.

Cons

This often led to data entry errors, information not available when needed, and frustration throughout the organization.
Use the parts you have correctly, and fully. Get buy in from everyone or you will end up with bad data.
Most of their updates are just "bug fixes. They have an idea portal for users to submit feedback, but I seriously doubt they even consider any of these.

Cons

It's still relatively young product and there are few features missing here and there.
A drawback is the inability to track shipping supplies, leaving those to be manually tracked for replenishment.
I've been working with manufacturing businesses for years, and for years I've lamented Xero's relatively weak inventory management system.

Easiest Product to Work With

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

This product has helped turn around ALL reporting compared to our old ERP solution. It is simple to use and everything seems to flow the way it should from RFQ to Invoicing, this system was a no-brainer for our manufacturing company.

Cons

I wish the online training and manuals were up to date with the latest version. I also would like to see more help with Crystal Reports.

Iteration used is out of date and not conducive with todays tech needs

Reviewed 4 years ago

We do not have most recent iteration of E2's shop tech system.

Pros

Usability as a job shop ERP system. Not all ERP systems can serve as a job shop companies ERP system.

Cons

High implementation cost forces users to use for a long time and not upgrade to a new system that contains cloud systems every couple of years. Interface is slow, confusing and not friendly to use.
