An improvment from what we had before

Global Shop Review

2017-02-21

It is a great interface for time tracking, generating part specific costs and reports.

Pros

Global Shop has given our company a wonderful infrastructure for cost evaluation and reporting. It is also wonderful at time tracking for employee time on machines, jobs, or process.

Cons

The user interface has a high learning curve for personnel when new to this type of ERP.

If you want a comprehensive ERP for accounting, time tractability and management, and you have the capitol and need for a complex system to manage your daily revenue, Global Shop is a wonderful tool. If you don't have time or resources dedicated to learning and creating a complex data system, this is not for you.

The good and the bad

2017-10-19

There are some widgets/features on GSS that we do not use. Also, some of the features we use a shortcut (basically) instead of doing things the long way. Sometimes it is to our advantage, others it is not.

Pros

Payroll is an easy feature that I like on Global Shop Solutions (GSS), it is very simple.

Cons

Speed, it is very slow at times and Crystal Reports are ALWAYS slow.

Global Shop - The never ending nightmare

2017-01-19

Global Shop CRM is completely useless - a complete waste of time - This was a feature they did a demo and was a big reason why we went with Global shop - when they installed the system CRM was not available apparently it was a new feature - was not on the market yet - What is on the market now is nothing like what was in the demo.

Pros

Does a good job of managing inventory.

Cons

When you get technical help - they either go in a back door and fix something (short term) or they tell you there is a "bug" - And this is the first time anyone has experienced the issues -

2018-06-05

Pros

The GS system was very helpful in terms of production planning, inventory, capacity and monitoring of the items, status and finished date.

A disappointment

2016-11-02

I "inherited" this program when I was hired into this company as the Accounting Manager.

Pros

The only plus I have seen is the ability to export certain data to Excel.

They update report names and do not update the Help.

Powerful modern ERP

2017-02-22

The access to those tools such as SPC, CRM, inventory control, and workflow planning/scheduling then provides a means to gain significant competitive advantage in whatever market your firm operates in.

Pros

Global Shop's interface is intuitive.

Cons

While Global Shop Solutions has incredible functionality for the price, it still seems to be primarily focused on a traditional model of manufacturing. Because of that, there are instances where certain modules don't quite fit with existing operations procedures and processes.

Global Shop Solutions has knowledgeable staff that can address nearly any concern you may have prior to purchase. In addition, they offer webinars and free, in-house demos that can give you a much better idea of how their ERP can be integrated into your business...and how it may effect it. My advice is to take them up on these comprehensive pre-purchase services before making a decision on an ERP.

Operations Manager

2017-03-27

We went live in Global Shop on 04-01-15 and in virtually all areas of our company, it's simplified how we operate. Is there a learning curve? Yes, but we went into the transition expecting a learning curve! It was new, complex software that took the place of multiple homegrown systems. It took 4 months from when we started till we went "live", which for us exceeded our expectations.

Pros

The list goes on - Advanced Planning/Scheduling, visible inventory, real-time job costing, auto-purchasing, etc.

Cons

The office gals had a tough time transitioning the accounting side to Global Shop from Quickbooks.

Pros

I am a purchasing manager so I am in the purchasing and inventory side all day long.

The one thing that annoys me the most is limited number of characters that can be used when making a new item number in inventory. some of our numbers can be long and sometimes we need to abbreviate them to get them to fit.

GSS claims to be the One-System solution. They are. I would highly recommend going through extensive planning to implement this system. GSS can be tailored to exactly what you want, but during the implementation phase, you need to be clear and honest with GSS so they can help configure GSS to your needs.
