Cons

  • The biggest inconvenience I have found in this software is the inability to easily make corrections. Once there is an error posted, it has to go through a process to make it right.Stephanie D.Read the full review

  • I think that we even had new colleagues getting so frustrated because of constant complains from the "old crew" that they never managed to integrate into the team and finally gave up / quit the job.Dennis F.Read the full review

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.

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)

The best Linux based ERP software in Europe!

Reviewed 2015-08-18
Review Source: Software Advice

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 2015-09-10
Review Source: Software Advice

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.

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

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 this field", "you don't need this tab", new colleagues ask what a specific field is used for and you answer that you have no idea at all, etc. ... for most of the time. None of our new colleagues in the last ten years managed to learn how to use the software properly which I do not blame them for because it seems that if you didn't grow up with it, it is next to impossible. I think that we even had new colleagues getting so frustrated because of constant complains from the "old crew" that they never managed to integrate into the team and finally gave up / quit the job. At least, it takes all their motivation. During the last years, we wanted to get some modifications done because we couldn't stand some of the time consuming workarounds of our colleagues anymore. We had several (expensive!) in person meetings with ABAS where they made many notes but never came back with any solutions until today.

Not happy with company, product average

Review Source: Software Advice

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.

Extremely disappointed

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2017-07-12
Review Source: GetApp

Cons
- The basic system is delivered without any feature. - It is necessary to ask for extremely expensive specific developments to have interesting features. - Little intuitive because it is necessary to open a large number of windows to obtain an information. - It is impossible to manage ourself the customizable imports. - If you do not take the option of the businesses apps, the software is not intuitive and the exploitation of the statistical data is difficult. - This ERP is more for production and logistics ... while we also make many of commercial. Relatively disappointed. We thought that the change of ERP would simplify us the life but it is very far from being the case. It has been more than 8 months since we migrated on this software and there are still numerous problems. The basic software is an empty shell. Very honestly, I used other ERP which were more complete and more successful as for example SAGE 100, SAP, CEGID ...

Pankl Racing Systems, based in Austria, specializes in developing and manufacturing engine and drive-train components for racing cars, high performance vehicles and the aerospace industry. Pankl is a global organization with worldwide subsidiaries in Austria, UK, USA, Slovakia and Japan. In Austria we've been using abas ERP since 1995, in the USA since 2002, in the UK since 2004 and in Slovakia since 2008. At the moment we are running abas ERP version 2009r4n11 at all the Pankl subsidiaries. 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. Another benefit is the flexibility of abas ERP. If your company needs customizations, like additional fields in screens to enter data or personalized reports, abas can make that happen. I was not personally involved in the abas ERP implementation process in Austria and the UK, but I never heard anything negative about these projects. The implementation process in the UK and in Slovakia took 3 to 6 months at each subsidiary. It took us a little bit longer in Slovakia compared to the UK, because we are running abas ERP in Slovakia in 4 different languages: Slovak, Czech, English and German. Both software vendors, in the UK and in Slovakia, were really helpful during the whole roll out process. We received all the help we needed during the implementation process and I really appreciate the fast response time of abas USA when there are problems or just user requests. In a demo system, which is actually a copy of the live database, each department receives special training in abas ERP. This approach has 2 major benefits: 1. The user has the chance to increase his knowledge of abas using familiar examples from the live system 2. The user is already in contact with the abas ERP system, but in a "save" demo environment, where he cannot damage anything in the live database. Based on our experience such lessons are more efficient for a new user than just classroom lectures. Our users usually learn to use abas ERP really quickly after these training sessions. As with each software solution, abas ERP has "special" features and functions, but if you are aware of them you gain a big advantage in handling the abas ERP software. The biggest benefit is to have all the relevant data from purchasing and sales, production, materials management, production planning and control (PPC) and financial accounting combined in one system.
