Pros

Ease of use, Simple Interface, Customizable, Awesome Community, APIs available. Overall this is best value for money for sure.
I am seriously very impressed with this ERP system and its powerful team and I wish to be a part of them. It is very helpful ERP system and easy to customize and easy to use.
Good support for mobile devices. Latest version has nice user interface, and good functionality.

Pros

The sales quote and sales order functions are intuitive and help sales people create deals that they can close. The mobile app is a fantastic addition to the usefulness of the software.
Overall, the system is a good value for the money. It is a favorite amongst my colleagues and I would recommend it to anyone who is in the decision making process.
What I like the most about this software is that this software serves entirely for sales department. Since i work as sales specialist, i am very satisfied with what this software offers.

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.
But still I fear about fewer service providers.

Cons

There are a few drawbacks with SAP business one, such as the standard reports are quite rigid and ugly.
No payrolling, you need to maintain the business process integration between the two products. Lack flexibility to choose the modules or functions you want.
Partners need to be well vetted as bad projects and consultants can hold you back. Software can be slow if badly customised, processes are poor or data model is wrong.

The Best ERP software out there

Reviewed a month ago

Have been using it for over 5 years now and have no complaints. Appreciate its scope and ease of use especially when I see people struggling to implement SAP business one. They need partners we implemented ourselves.

Pros

Easy to use, great interface, very understandable self explanatory forms. Support responds quickly to issues and they get resolved.

Cons

Nothing to dislike. Don't like them hiving off HR module

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Open source, customizable, clean UX, free, great community The software is built on the Frappe framework developed by the creators itself. The framework can be used to build custom apps too!

Cons

The documentation still has a way to go if it can compare with the likes of SAP. Might be a little intimidating for some to get started.

ERPNext

Well designed, easy to use ERP and surprisingly easy to customize

Reviewed 5 years ago

Better purchase, inventory and production management. Better interoperability between different departments- Sales, Accounts and Production. More importantly better adherence standard BOMs.

Pros

- Based on the Frappe framework, it makes it easily customizable - Neat and responsive UI - Great for manufacturing with Multilevel BOMs, managing multiple production departments - No vendor lock in. The software 100% open-source. It provides great security to small scale businesses. - Community driven and transparent approach to development

Cons

ERPNext user manuals should cover more number of use-cases. They typically cover the standard use-case. Compared to products like Tally or SAP awareness of ERPNext in India is still low, end-user confidence and acceptance has to be essentially be established with trials.

Robust ERP

Reviewed 3 years ago

With ERPNext we have a good HRMS and an employee intranet portal. Our large scale accounting system is powered by ERPNext. ERPNext coupled with frappe framework has offloaded a lot of our time and effort that would have gone into building such a system from scratch and helped us focus on our core business challenges.

Pros

Most of the business requirements available out of the box. Ease of configuration to suit business needs.

Cons

ERPNext

One of the most customisable ERP in the market

Reviewed 2 years ago

We needed an ERP that can be molded to our needs and to our customers' needs. After searching for dozens of alternatives, I conclude that ERPNext is the only software that can do that. The open source nature and well written architecture are the reasons that full customisations are possible.

Pros

Very-very customisable to suit the needs of the business. Great integration with other software through API. One of the easiest ERP to use. Great flexible reporting options. We can create custom reports on the fly. Runs on reputable cloud providers. Can be set up with a minimal infrastructure budget to start with.

Cons

Installation can be confusing for first timers. It was not a big problem for us as we are software development company, there was enough information from the community.

Cost Effective & Flexible

Reviewed 8 months ago

It is a cost-effective ERP system with all the features in place that give seamless & effective business operations. Integrations of different modules provide visibility & velocity that ultimately reduces variability which is what today's business utmost requirement.

Pros

It has topnotch customizability that gives excellent ease to its users & more importantly it is neither an expensive product to acquire nor it requires massive infrastructure to run.

Cons

Since it is a very customizable product & needs to build as per business requirements that is a quite challenging task in itself.

ERPNext

Most flexible ERP

Reviewed 22 days ago

One of the best ERPs for a mid-sized company.

Pros

ERPNext is all in one suite and hence most of the issues related to data structure are resolved at the beginning itself if the implementation is done for all the modules at one go. Secondly, customization options are almost limitless and you don't need to be from an IT background to carry out some of the basic changes as per your business requirement. Document flow and control are also very easy to learn and implement giving you the requisite flexibility of each function which does help in the implementation.

Cons

Except that stock and account ledgers do not offer monthly/quarterly/yearly reports and no comparison of the ledgers can be done with the previous period, there is nothing that can be negative for ERPNext.

Fast setup, catering for all standard business needs and ready to use from day one!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great ERP software for small and medium businesses which cater for quite a number of business processes. Support should be more readily available rather than 'pushing' customers towards blogs for help in sorting out issues and/or understanding them.

Pros

Ease of setup and intuitive navigation through the system. Most standard business processes are already catered for. Changes in look and feel, including overall business template setup relatively easy to set up. Available help through manual and videos are very helpful.

Cons

Hard to trace back minor glitches/bugs. Support not really catering for these small issues, which sometimes take time to understand the cause. Support often not very friendly in explaining the issue/bug but still rectify them.

The best choice for teams that have some technical knowledge in house

Reviewed 3 years ago

The community is vibrant and fast. There are telegram messenger groups for live communication. There is a super active forum platform. And there is a structured and well maintained github project. If you want to be part of this community, it's easy to get rolling.

Pros

The extensibility and flexibility of ERPNext is unrivaled. Every field you create becomes instantly available as an API point in the powerful interface of the ERP software. All relevant core features of an ERP system are mature and help you learn to do it the right way as a company. The team is rigid and consequent in making sure, that this streamlined process of creating opportunities, quotations, sales orders and sales invoices is kept intact which is very healthy and keeps customizations sane.

Cons

ERPNext is not yet easy and straight forward to use. If you have no idea of ERP software and you have no technical skills at all this is not for you. I would love to see the team focus more on the UX of the interface and the ease of use for new and very occasional users. The software feels like it's really made for experts and daily users. That said, we have compared ERPNext with Salesforce and SAP and the open source solution really shines in comparison. 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. We have started to try to help this. But it's easy to ask and not so easy to deliver. Work in progress ...
