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

Super easy set up, effortless onboarding, and great pricing plan for small groups. It has strong search functionality and intuitive threading.
I love that this has reminder features, I use slack to message myself for anything i need to have at hand. I also love that it helps keep everyone on the same page.
I like that this can be used community-wide as a "water cooler. It is also awesome because you can have private conversations.

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

Only thing which I struggle with is that I get lost in my channels sometimes. You can only go into one channel at a time.
Slack is a tool, and if a company fails to identify the ground rules, it can be useless. The organizations that dislike using slack often have not defined rules around using it.
It feels disorganized, repetitive, and obsolete. I do not think that this is going to be something we use in the longterm.
