Pros

It was nice experience while implementing ERPnext in our organization. After evaluating all, ERPNext is user friendly software and i recommended to small organization.
ERPNext has a good layout of there modules. ERPNext is easy to use when you know what is where, but overall i love the sofware.
Ease of use, Simple Interface, Customizable, Awesome Community, APIs available. Overall this is best value for money for sure.

Pros

We can provide better customer service because everybody finds their needed information faster and more secure. That is a big advantage for all.
Our employees love the clean and self explaining GUI of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 which integrates into the Microsoft world perfectly.
I have used the software for almost 9 months, and have found it to be very user friendly, with excellent presentation.

Cons

But having all the ERP world suck at UX does not mean that this is an unsolvable problem. Also the documentation of ERPNext is not job or use case driven and very technical at times.
The platform out of the box is very inflexible and at the time of testing many touted features simply were not present or did not behave as advertised.
The upgrades are a bit difficult for someone who is non technical. New feature requests usually are addressed but needs external funding/support as it is open system and developed by the community.

Cons

Once again, if you buy this product you a damning your co workers to years of mental anguish and some might genuinely start hating their job so much that they quit.
Otherwise implementation will fail and management will blame systems in front of business owners.
Ridiculously expensive and not even close to what any other software company charges for basic accounting.
