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 best thing about this software is the customer support. It is superior and love the personal touch and that you are actually talking to someone live.
The check in process is super important because that's like a first impression, so I love how we can customize it to certain visitors.
Super easy to setup and more cost-effective than the competitors. We tried Envoy and iVisitor and this is a better product.

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

Our staff is now immediately notified with a delivery is made or a client presents for a session. No more checking the lobby a dozen times.
It does not stick well to most fabrics to usually within a few mins the name tag is lost somewhere.
The only problems we've had, is when there is an apple update, the iPad is not compatible with the iPad Receptionist app. I have to continually delete and re-download the program and printer.

Easy to use, and highly customizable, but plauged by bugs.

Reviewed 3 months ago

The product has great potential! I wish the frappe org would focus more on all the technical debt, rather than new features. Unfortunately, they generally get paid for new features by customers, not for fixing bad code.

Pros

I love the ability to customize forms, while it could be easier, it sure is nice to make changes without code.

Cons

Bugs. Unfortunately, open source means that some code is not high quality. Another factor is the poor management of Git pull requests. I've created several bug fixes that languished until deactivated by automated robot after a month or two with little response from product owners. Many of these bugs are quite serious, particularly around the payroll module. Many, less serious and obvious issues, exist over major versions without resolution.

ERPNext

Most flexible ERP

Reviewed 3 months 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.

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.

ERPNext Software Review

Reviewed a year ago

After a failed attempt to transition from Tally ERP to Odoo software due to our complex business process, we were able to successfully integrate ERPNext software into our organization. ERPNext has been in use at our company for the past two years, and we recommend it to small and medium-sized enterprises that need to use project, inventory and production modules frequently.

Pros

- Simple and easy-to-use interface. - Open-source ERP software, no licensing cost required. - Customization is simple and requires no coding. - Simple to configure according to business needs. - Simplified reporting system. - Well-maintained and actively supported.

Cons

- Big enterprises are not recommended. - The software is not suitable for anti-free software organizations. - Still a newcomer to the market, and has yet to earn the trust of businesses. - Customized versions have upgrade issues. - Complex setup for roles and permission management. - The documentation can be further improved.

Great product if you have a good internal IT team

Reviewed 3 months ago

Good product. Technically it is evolving beautifully. I have seen it since 2015. I am very positive about its future. They need to work on building a strong partner network who can handhold the users, train and coach them. Just providing great tech is not enough, implementation and ongoing consulting/ coaching of users is MUST.

Pros

The product is well conceptualised, and superbly designed for a small-medium firm. Their Open Source approach is great and provides tremendous value for money.

Cons

Reporting is not user friendly. Tables are not easily readable and the scrolling is painful. Finance module is not designed keeping in mind Indian Chartered Accountants. They find it cumbersome and ask the firm to maintain data in their favourite Tally. This has to be addressed.

ErpNext adoption experience

Reviewed 3 months ago

In my case I began to use ErpNext v10 for own purposes and after a time I decided to implement this product for local companies. To do that I has to integrate this solution with the local laws for invoices, human resources, taxes, etc.

Pros

Easy to integrate with other solutions or for creating new modules. For example, in my case I could easily add an IoT solution with ingestion, reporting and analytics.

Cons

Different versions mean a new big mayor release. It means that you'll have to work in a new implementation. This have an important impact in your own repository because database changes cannot be migrated directly to the new versions. Generally a new version changes all the database structure, then so many different scripts have to be constructed to migrate the business data to the new version. And in general the procedures indicated by ErpNext don't work easily.

Pros

Fully featured and customisable ERP system

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

The ease of use of the web interface is excellent. It's easy to see the status of a document at a glance and to move it to the next step of the process. Information entered in one area is automatically available elsewhere, such as contact information, shipping addresses, etc. It's all so well integrated. As well as being integrated it's also very customisable. Fields can be added to any document for any purpose. Custom scripts can be added to perform automated tasks.

Cons

I found it quite a steep learning curve for setting up the system; creating and importing all the details for the component parts we use and creating the Bills of Materials. But once it's done (correctly!) it's a breeze to use. Using the system to calculate how much of a product it is possible to manufacture and for what date is not straightforward. This area of the system needs some attention from the development or documentation teams. In some ways the flexibility of the system is a disadvantage. There can be many different ways to accomplish the same thing, but they will have slightly different effects on other parts of the system. There does need to be a "recommended" and "standard" method of doing certain things which is given in the documentation.
