Pros

Material tracking for quality assurance. Genius Customer Success team is always on top to make sure we succeed with any problems/ideas arise.

CV

Chris V.

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.

MH

Mauro H.

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.

JK

Joe K.

Pros

The ability to drill down between modules is wonderful. I've never used a software that allowed this so seamlessly.

AF

Angie F.

The product is well suited for our needs and the cost tracking functionality is great. The greatest strengths of the software are inventory control, cost/labor tracking, and reporting.

AS

Aaron S.

Like I said it is very easy to navigate. I wish I knew more about the capabilities and what we can use it for in our industry.

LB

Lauren B.

Cons

We soon found out that the SW to Genius tool was 100% useless for doing revisions/changes.

DP

Delmar P.

It is also impossible to streamline the interface or customize it in any way with many redundant and irrelevant fields left to confuse users.

AR

Anonymous Reviewer

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.

JK

Joe K.

Cons

Do not buy this software in Australia - Dishonest business practices and terrible support.

KB

Ken B.

Before giving any attention to this product do your own research on it. Original M1 code was stolen from other company by former employees then followed by lawsuit in which M1 people lost.

SD

Slavy D.

Terrible service and backup. Only 1 technician that knows what he is doing and he is across NZ and AU and he is not allowed to give out his direct contact details.

Excellent

Pros

Genius ERP was not the ERP we as a team selected. I do believe it would have been a good fit. If you are looking for a new ERP system, I recommend trying Genius ERP. Their software is very up to date and their sales team does a good job getting to know your company needs.

Cons

Nothing major just we were not sure how their accounting software would match up to our sister company who runs a different ERP system.

Great ERP for manufacturing

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have replace our Epicor ERP with GENIUS ERP and we are very happy with the change. Genius is way faster than Epicor and is easier to learn and operate. I highly recommend Genius ERP.

Pros

This is a very effective ERP. The software is easy to learn and easy to operate. It can by automated to a certain degree with it's GTA (Genius Task Automation) system. Every major updates comes with many new features, so it get better and better with every updates.

Cons

Customization is very limited with Genius. You cannot change or alter the behavior or the look of the software. You may lose some needed functionality when the software is updated. Somme bugs can take many updates before they get fixed.
