    Pros
    Material tracking for quality assurance. Genius Customer Success team is always on top to make sure we succeed with any problems/ideas arise.
    I liked it's system setup, ease of use, report editing ability is among the best with Report Builder and online control. BOM layout and ability to edit an order specific BOM with ease.
    Our integration team was amazing, they went above and beyond to understand the business and successfully customized genius to match our processes which was no small task.
    Cons
    We soon found out that the SW to Genius tool was 100% useless for doing revisions/changes.
    It is also impossible to streamline the interface or customize it in any way with many redundant and irrelevant fields left to confuse users.
    Performing a root cause analysis of the business as a whole, data re-entry errors was the root cause to many widespread issues for us.

    Genius ERP_great product for the money

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Our company has seen many tasks that were being duplicated in various spreadsheets eliminated. All the data needed by any department is now in one place - quoting, sales, production, inventory management. All the users can see what relates to their department and share easily with others. We are still "new" to Genius, only 8 months in. We still have many things we have not had a chance to learn or put into practice but each week we are finding new ways to save time and improve our results.

    Pros

    Genius has many features we selected it for. It allows customizable BOMs that can continually be updated throughout the build by the engineering team. The Lifecycle engineering feature was core to our selecting the product. It has the flexibility to allow preliminary material buys before the design is complete, and still track these to the job. The material planning and control features are also easy to use and offer flexible solutions. We integrated Genius into our business in about 8 weeks. They provide a full team of support to help get it up and running! Their support team contiues to be there when needed.

    Cons

    If anything is a bit weak in Genius it is the integrated accounting module. It is not as user friendly as our previous system ( QB). The trade-off though of being able to see live job or order costs outweigh any other concerns. All new products take time to get used to.

    Vendor response

    You have to pay for everything all thetime; Very poor customer service

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    It is customizable; Quite powerful with enough work. They basically give you a software that is almost useless and then you tell them how you want reports to look, etc and then they program it for you. Since reports and even macros (automatically attaching drawings to items/WO/POs, etc) can be custom programmed it gives you great flexibility and power.

    Cons

    Hard to tell what I like the least; And I don't like saying bad things about any company but for the sake of others I'd like to share our experience and hopefully save others the headaches and money we've lost. Everything runs on modules and unlike almost every other program I've ever tried, each window takes from 5-8 seconds to open. Everything seems very slow! The vendor sucks money every step...

    Genius ERP Review

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    The implementation team has been very helpful and informative in getting the system configured to go live.

    Pros

    We like the ability of this software to be able to handle custom BOM's that we use in our manufacturing processes. This allows us to load BOM's to the system and manage our manufacturing for each course.

    Cons

    Nothing at this time. The software is meeting the requirements that we anticipated.

    Genius Review

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    The team that helped us implement the software helped us customize the software to fit our company and best industry practices. We are really happy with the work flow of this software.

    Cons

    Integration was easy and the flow is great. I do wish the software had the ability to allow at lease an administrator to delete or Undo transactions that were accidentally confirmed or the ability to at lease minimally edit confirmed transactions (Dates, Text, different fields, ETC.)
