Probably most powerful software ever made

2018-06-16

Pros

- Extremely flexible engine. You can define any process in the world without knowing any programming. My team which has implemented this does not know programming at all. We were able to manage entire implementation only through customisations. - Doctype concept they have used is extremely powerful and flexible. - Quite a detailed documentation with ample videos and webinars (also available on youtube). - Extremely strong accounting background. - Same can be used for as many user roles you want. Can be used by start-ups as well large organisations.

Cons

Though existing CRM data management is very strong.

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

2017-11-13

Better purchase, inventory and production management.

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.

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.

Launched as a free open source platform, quickly monetized.

2017-10-10

Pros

Basic CRM was ok, all the basics were there including some basic inventory management and shipping tools.

Cons

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.

Easy to implement, easy to use

2017-04-27

We are a small software and service company and only wanted software to support the main business flow: quotation, order, project, invoice and found ERPNext could easily be customised to meet our needs almost exactly with judicious use of workflow customisation and form customisation.

Pros

Easy workflow customisation, implement web version with low technical skill, easy screen and form customisation, cheap enough to use just the features you want and ignore the rest, support is responsive

Cons

Use of HTML for to format printed documents is awkward (difficult to format to include in MS-Word etc), documentation is not great

ERPNEXT is a very good open source erp system

2018-11-06

ERPNEXT is good but slows down a lot when running locally on a window device

Pros

The reporting system, virtually any report can be generated, it's user-friendly and gives you full control of the software

Cons

The software slows down most times, the offline sysnchronization time is slow, and also its still lacks a lot of features

ERPnext for small business

2020-05-16

Overall my industry used it a few years, because it is not good for large manufacturing industry ,we recorded our transaaction data, which was reliable method and good form while importing and uploading to another ERP. useful for small business and tacts.

Pros

Open source, any feature can be customized, valid and complete devolpment documentation is available, easy in use, remotely access. easy installations.

Cons

All modules are not pre build, very complex and tough work to build and integrate with other module, either its documentation is available but still a special dedicated devolper is required to run and customize process, less controlling over transactions. like approvals etc.

One of the most customisable ERP in the market

2020-10-16

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

Great integration with other software through API. One of the easiest ERP to use.

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.

A complete Business process solution an SME or Startup can imagine.

2018-03-20

Its give me a freedom to take this wonderful product to any segment of client right from early-stage startup to Growing SME.

Pros

The Ease of use, compared to typical ERP's available in the market, ERPNext is quite a user friendly with less complex forms which are almost similar looking in all modules

Cons

some Features like Data import tool lacks clarity so far,, being open source ERP certainly it has a way to go in terms of documentation and ecosystem of service providers in market in terms of options available.
