Pros
Definitely worth mentioning is the terrific tech support from NECS. Anytime we need help or even custom programming, the helpful and knowledgeable staff is always willing to help.

I would like to say that the person that I have done most of my problem solving with is Hajar, and she is truly a pleasure to speak to and always is cheerful.

Being able to get programs built to our needs is very important to us. I have recommended this system to other distributors and would continue to recommend NECS.

The accompanying manual was enormous, and I had a very difficult time putting it all together, fighting management all the way.

NECS Entree software for food distributors

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

NECS software is the best possible. So easy to use and so easy to contact the staff.

Cons

There is nothing I don't like about the product or vendor. This product does everything that we could possibly want and then some. The owner of the company and his staff attend the Dot Food Show and the two Golbon Conferences annually. I get to visit with them at those shows. I have also attended two regional NECS one day seminars in Dallas and New Orleans. The regional seminars are much less expensive than traveling to their home office.

20 year veteran office manager user/ trainer of entree

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

The software can meet the needs of any organization. The design of the components that make up the package can be initiated and used as almost separate components. Of course, the most benefit is realized by using all components in harmony, but perhaps there are companies who would not need to use all of the components all of the time. The software can be scaled from a single computer user who just wanted purchase order management to a large network using all facets of the software as needed. The software is infinitely customizable and can easily grow with your needs. The software is easily understood by first time users, and employees with no computer experience can be up and running with a short training time.

Cons

I personally think this product is fabulous. I initiated it in our business many versions ago, and at that time, I bought it from or because of a printed advertisement. It was a single-user system, and our small company management was very skeptical of its promised benefit. Being the only person who believed it could help, I was responsible for everything it could and couldn't do. The accompanying...

Love, Hate!!

Pros

Cache Weights. For more money you can personalize it. Fills the need of a Food Distribution business.

Cons

I had a version that was discontinued which I paid A lot of money for more than 10 years ago. We are a small company and the program is over kill but I needed cache weights. They recently made me upgrade and spend A lot more money for software that they haven't perfected. I'm very unhappy with the new version, the old version was easier, better and every few years we call to get the kinks out. But the new version is not performing properly and I've called tooooo many times to fix it. And still they have not!!!!!

Entree is the way to go!

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Easy to learn and very user friendly. I can always teach new employees to use the system quickly. We like how much or how little information we can get on reports. I always enjoy working with the vendor. They take very good care of us.

Cons

At this time I don't have anything that we don't like.

We are a family owned, full line Foodservice distributor. In 1998, we knew it was time to start making it easier on ourselves and started looking for software that would do everthing we wanted it to. We used to do everything hand written. NECS Entree simplified our operation. We have been using Entree ever since, and going back I wouldn't have done anything different - except get the program earlier....
