Mike Castoro

Long time administrator and user of BlueCherry Classic and Infinity

2019-06-20

We're a fashion brand selling on multiple channels including our own ecommerce site, in multiple countries, and BlueCherry allows us to be flexible and scalable as we navigating this volatile retail environment.

Pros

• Having multi-level product hierarchy (Product->Color->Size) built into the foundation of the product makes every business process that much smoother. • Integrated EDI and the availability of standard EDI maps for our retail trading partners and logistics providers makes EDI processing less painful. • Good reporting engine allows us to get data when we need it and how we need it, to make better decisions. • The future plans to move to a more open platform allowing for APIs and workflows will be a game changer.

Cons

. • Difficulties in the past with launching non-standard EDI/API integrations like Retailer Drop Ship programs

Implemented BlueCherry ERP, BlueCherry EDI and BlueCherry AWS in 3 apparel sourcing divisions to streamline business processes and provide more accurate, timely information to business community to make business decisions.

2017-11-16

We support our divisions with limited IT staff because BlueCherry is a functionally rich solution that allowed us to re-design our business processes around BlueCherry functionality.

Pros

Functionality has been designed to meet the unique requirements of the apparel sourcing industry.

Cons

User interface supports Microsoft Office tasks (i.e. copy/paste) but would like for the look and feel to be more like Microsoft look and feel making it easier for our business community to navigate between BlueCherry and Microsoft Office.

Needs Upgrades

2017-08-31

Pros

The screens are clear and easy to read, such as the style master and production order entry functionalities, and there are a plethora of reports you can run with the report launcher.

Cons

It would be nice if 1 product could live in 1 line for a sales order. However, as the software now stands, when you have different size packs you end up having to enter each as a different line.

Excellent ERP for apparel companies

2018-08-09

Pros

With the breadth of fashion and apparel companies using BlueCherry, it has all of the features and functionality you would expect. The ease of use, ability to configure and wide range of features make it a very extensible and scalable solution. It's a perfect solution for small to mid-size or start-up companies.

Cons

For more complex organizations and operations, specifically multi-national or multi-currency companies may find the system unsuitable, if not set up properly.

Powerful Solutions, Trusted Support, and a Network of Industry Leaders

2017-12-04

If you're looking for an ERP you can trust that the CGS team has offerings and support that won't let you down. I've had the pleasure of working with them for nearly a decade and I've always felt that they've had my back in all the good and bad moments we face as IT professionals.

Pros

I have learned a great deal from them and look forward to working with them in the future. The management and executive teams are approachable and responsive.

Cons

I'd like to see some innovation in respect to the upgrade process. While I don't think anything will ever replace manual testing (to an extent) I'd like to see CGS offer tools to help streamline and automate this process.

Can a company survive without a comprehensive ERP software program?

2017-11-09

Pros

Once all of the initial controls and reference tables are setup, the information necessary to complete the users processes are simply a matter of filling in the blanks.

Cons

Support, other than EDI support is sometimes not up to par, otherwise resolution is timely. A simple method of uploading orders via spreadsheet would be nice.

Blue Cherry is very flexible as an ERP and thus it can be challenging, but overall it does the job.

2017-10-18

It does a fairly good job as an ERP and as a PLM, and the COO is not too bad compared with many other vendors.

Pros

Blue Cherry does a good job of managing our product lifecycle from design through to production and sales orders.

Cons

The things I like the least are the outdated or lack of documentation via their Wiki and also the inconsistency mainly of captions for the same info in different places.

currently using PLM, ERP and EDI see the advantages of Collaborative and B to B website as add ons.

2017-11-17

have been using system for 10 years and have taken advantage of the systems growth as the business grew during that period of time. like the fact that everyone can keep up to date with general service packs and take advantage of the BC community enhancements.

Pros

Once setup, programs are easy to use and integrate into your business model.

Cons

system creates a lot of temporary files that eventually bog down performance and needs to be maintained on a regular basis.

Pros

If you are a manufacturing company, this system will cover all the process since the PLM to the B2C.

Apparel Company Must-Have

2019-06-19

Pros

The product is flexible enough to use its multitude of functionalities to support existing business processes and also structured well enough to build business processes around.

Cons

One of the cons with this software is the process for maintenance (applying fixes, upgrades, etc.), as CGS does the majority of that.

Blue Cherry

2019-06-12

We run our business on Blue Cherry.

Pros

We have implemented many custom modifications in order to handle our business requirements.

Cons

Some features are difficult to implement without guidance from CGS. When setting up any new functionality, identifying all the underlying tables and links can be cumbersome.

Cons

There are numerous modules and features and need to make sure you understand how they work and how they fit into your business process in order to leverage.

Easy way to receive orders from retailers

2018-04-25

Pros

I receive orders from retailers via bluecherry system and it is easy to fill them based on a pull of the UPCs on each PO.

Cons

It is nearly impossible to decipher 860 change notices when sent via Mi9 and authorized and sent to the vendor via EDI. We nearly always request that they generate a new PO.

Long Time Satisfied Client

2018-07-02

Pros

I've used Blue Cherry for 14 years, and watched as the application grew, and evolved into the robust system that it is today.

Cons

Well this is a tough one, as I have little to be dissatisfied with, but as with any software company, it does get frustrating sometimes finding the right resource to address your problem, but ultimately it happens. Their staff always includes many experts on many subjects.
