What users say

We decided to use abas ERP because it provides all the necessary functions for a mid-market manufacturer like Pankl and from our point of view it has a really good cost/performance ratio.
I believe the quality of them ERP system considering it’s competitors’ prices are great and can leave SMEs with a fullfiled inventory management system.

All these positive reviews make me wonder if we are really using the same software ...

Reviewed 2 years ago

I would never recommend this software to anybody! If this is considered to be a good ERP, I really do not want to see the others. So to be fair I have no comparison when it comes to ERP but many other pieces of software. When it comes to sales there is no automated support to follow up on leads, projects, etc. There isn't the slightest piece of CRM integrated. We wanted to connect a softphone to the ERP (which shouldn't be that complicated) and asked our IT administrator to get in touch with ABAS. The answer of the guy answering the call was that he will need to ask his boss. Of course, we never heard from them again. If it wasn't such a headache and expensive to switch to another ERP we would have done it years ago. It is definitely on our agenda.

Pros

... or ifi it is jsut our local support which is so bad. As far as I know we didn't have any major blackouts during the last ten years which, of course, is really positive! Colleagues who use the software since the beginning know how to use it and developed their own workarounds for most problems (or finally accepted them as a given). Because they have worked with the software for the better part of the last twenty years (of course with many updates inbetween), they do not know any other software and probably think that it is the state-of-the-art.

Cons

Okay where should I begin? As somebody wrote in another review the colors really hurt your eyes. Of course, that is only a minor issue which I can overlook if it was the only problem. UX is a nightmare! There are endless lists, tabs and fields that are useless for 95% of the users. So when you introduce a new colleague it is absolutely overwhelming for them and you will hear yourself saying "ignore...

ABAS ERP Review

Reviewed 5 months ago

I am happy with ABAS and it works for our manufacturing processes. It is well priced for the value we get out of it.

A robust support system and responsiveness of the vendor. It is easy to deploy and extend its use. The integration is seamless.

Cons

Time zone to get support from Germany for upgrade process can be time consuming.

Best flexibility available in ERP systems

Reviewed 5 years ago

It is great to have an ERP solution that has so much capability to provide for unique business solutions. The problem with the ease of use, is tracking these changes and creating more maintenance and upgrade work in the future. Make sure to check functionality in the core product before you add custom solutions, often you can meet your requirements with just a little bit of training and small changes to your process.

Pros

* Highly customizable interface that allows for adding additional functionality and improving users experience * Easy to learn programming language * Modern web services available for web based applications * Functionality and flexibility of the big ERP providers, without the high cost

Cons

* Tracking and updating customized solutions is not very smooth * Small user base in the US makes collaborating with other companies hard (this is improving)

Not happy with company, product average

Reviewed 5 years ago

We were misled during the sales process in that we were told the system could function in ways that it cannot. The implementation process was a mess as it took 16 months then on the day of launch we were provided a product that did not work. Initially Abas would not listen to us when we told them that it was not functioning. It took months for them to send a representative out to take a look and the conclusion was that we had to start over. Abas created a new system for us and we had to re-create six months of data re-entering all sales and A/R, but it was impossible to do all data, so the purchasing side was entered as opening numbers. We lost some detail from the sales side as well. We have historical data that can never be retrieved.

Pros

Integrated with the financials. Very easy to move data to excel. Many screens within Abas function like excel which is handy. Can customize many reports.

Cons

Requires too many customizations to meet needs, which gets very expensive. Some basic financial and CRM functions do not exist. An example would be it will not process a reimbursement. When you need customer service you put in a ticket and often get a programmer who has not worked on your system or does not recall the details of your system/company and so you pay for them to research your issue. There are bugs with the system functioning on mac even though they claim compatibility. Not all of our users are on mac. I have had some functions mysteriously malfunction and we have to pay Abas to get it fixed.

The best Linux based ERP software in Europe!

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

I have personally worked with the vendor in Karlsruhe for the Bulgarian localization and I can tell they are very flexible and efficient team and they do the job. I like abas ERP as this is the only Linux based ERP that has the complete functionality developed as a regular ERP with particular focus in production, which is in itself rare for any ERP.

Cons

Although it is commercial for a Linux based product the company that chooses to use it has to developed a small team of Linux professionals (which are more expensive and rare to find in Bulgaria than Windows specialists) internally.

ABAS - review

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

the ability to drag detail to excel it allowed to research and recon easily

Cons

That vendor information as far address, 1099, vendor payments and invoices were not in the same module. The ability to see what invoices were paid and how at face value. the Current payment module was difficult to read and not was user friendly. My experience with previous softwares we had the ability to take a screen shot and send to a vendor their activity and they would be able to read. I also dislike that AR and AP could not both post to the same supplementary General ledger account for sales tax payable, this was extremely frustrating.

Best Supply Chain Quality for Price

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great application, great value for money.

Pros

I believe the quality of them ERP system considering it’s competitors’ prices are great and can leave SMEs with a fullfiled inventory management system.

Cons

Maybe there are a few limitations by the application to growing inventory or industries dealing with fast moving export warehouses.
