Sirius E Review

2017-01-24

The initial setup and learning curve is a lot more difficult than I would have liked. I feel like there are a lot of areas where the program could be made more user friendly and self explanatory for the end user.

Pros

Rental inventory tracking.

Cons

Does not integrate with QuickBooks as much as I would like.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.

While we thrilled that you are greatly satisfied with the overall quality of the software, we would like to have the opportunity to work a little closer with your in order to uncover what your needs would be with respect to the setup and learning process.

As well, we fully integrate with QuickBooks provided the module has been purchased. We would be happy to discuss this with you!

We are in the process of updating our user manual which we feel will also bring value!

2017-09-20

HAs the potential to track inventory really well, but some issues must be ironed out

Pros

Really visual and helpful, as well as fairly easy to use.

Cons

-The colors for inventory availability, within a transaction, do not display properly most of the time and it is really annoying.

I can create items, PO's, internal work orders, quotations, & invoices with relative ease.

2017-06-02

Pros

Once you learn it's many features, it is very intuitive and fluid in execution. It communicates fairly well amongst its different transaction operations.

Cons

I am disappointed that I cannot attain a correct grand total, at times, with PO's, due to lacking 1 more decimal place in the list price on the PO itself, or on the purchase tab on items management, there needs 2 more decimal points in the listed and last listed cost fields, I have to round up to make the last cost be factual.

Terrible software and even worse customer support.

2017-07-14

I learned to appreciate other rental software providers.

Pros

If they spent as much time actually fixing the program as they do making it look nice, it might be a usable program.

Cons

Don't waste your time, at least Sirius Pro calculated depreciation correctly, it tracked inventory correctly, produced usable reports, printed IWO more than 50% of the time when items are returns, etc.

Hello BJ,

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to give us your feedback which is so crucial to our business!
We are glad that you have taken such a great command of the software as a SUPER user.
Any obstacles of a technical can be promptly addressed by a support team member who will gladly assist! We have noticed through past experiences that any speed related obstacles are simply due to a tweak in the configuration or settings if the particular user.
We truly go above and beyond and being an Elite member certainly gives you certain * front of the line* privileges when it comes to support.
While we would love to have all incidents investigated and resolved almost instantly, certain cases DO require more extensive research and possibly next level escalation which may, in turn, cause a slight delay.
Of course, we will always see to it that your Elite status is always taken into consideration at every stage of this process.

Dishonest and disrespectful customer service, disorganized billing and inconsistent software support

2015-11-16

We were a customer for about 8 years and had the most inconsistent customer service and support imaginable. Custom form requests that never got done, billing issues almost every month, account managers changing frequently with no notice or follow up, failure to return calls, refusal to return records at the end of the contract, and downright disrespectful treatment by the head of customer service.

2017-07-19

Pros

Easy to enter contracts and manage rentals and assets operationally.

Cons

Software had difficulty starting up. Initial resource assigned led us down incorrect paths. Resources seemed stretched to support items other than simple support questions. Software seems it was developed for specific rental sector. We have a more general rental model. This caused development items.
