Wow... the best ERP system available

2017-12-19

Even though we can spend 250K AED for this project non of them could helped me to do field sales from a mobile or tablet.

Pros

Open-source, Custom Script, inventory, serial number tracking, email alert, Custom fields, reporting, sales, purchase, web view, mobile application, history of every transactions, easy to setup, growing community

Cons

Need more community members to provide sample scripts like stackoverflow. Now on the community very few people are posting how they solved their issue.

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

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.

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.

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.

Very much user friendly and easily customizable ERP solution i have ever seen.

Pros

Easy to setup in linux and easy to operate, Multilingual, multi tenant and nice UI.

Cons

Young in ERP industries, That's why lack of feature, as their feature adding trend is high, they don't need much time to be robust in feature.

A Great and true Opensource ERP Application

2017-04-26

ERPNext is the great and true opensource,community-driven ERP App out there.It includes the maximum possible modules in a traditional ERP App and had a huge options to customize it with minimal effect.

Pros

A great product, we have used for 1 years without almost any down time. The software has progressed through that time to its now broad spectrum suitable for almost any small to medium size.

Cons

Little bit tough to learn,when we need complex customization. Perfect ERP system for smaller companies at a very competitive price.

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.

Made for resourceful entrepreneurs of any scale!

2018-04-09

Very active community, any feature you need can be requested on github issues and as per the importance and other priorities your issue/feature request will make it to core product eventually.

Pros

Free and Open Source Foundation and Community backed ERP Easy Web UI Actively developed.

Cons

No proprietary dependencies can be put into core product. Not suitable for anti-free software companies. Rolling release, No LTS. Not suitable for organisations that cannot adapt to regularly updated ERP system. e.g Some organizations still need FoxPro based systems, not suitable for such organizations.

A flexible, open-source option. Would highly recommend

2017-04-26

Pros

Open source, customizable, clean UX, free, great community The software is built on the Frappe framework developed by the creators itself.

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.

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

2017-09-22

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

Changes in look and feel, including overall business template setup relatively easy to set up.

Cons

Support not really catering for these small issues, which sometimes take time to understand the cause.
