Pros
The Prophet 21 development and support staff are very knowledgeable. Many of the folks have been there a long time, employee retention is great and the knowledge is very useful.
The intuitive ease of use, and the ability to customize as needed has made this a very versatile software package.
P21 is the leader in this area and they are continuing to enhance both "sides" of the application. We also like the Windows environment which makes it very easy for new users to learn the navigation.
Cons
Even before they discontinued my software I still had multiple problems their tech support. I rarely write bad reviews but the last contact I had with this company was so unprofessional.
If you forget to do this at a later date, you can literally cost your company hundreds or thousands of dollars because the wrong vendor was given the PO.
Nearly eight years after our installation, disappointed in my choice to install it.

P21

Reviewed 5 years ago

P21 has allowed us to track our production needs, while seemlessly helping us to control on hand inventory levels. Accounting has full visability of all transactions and can easily powerdrill into transactions for support.

Pros

Prophet 21 offers a complete package with accounting, inventory and light manufacturing modules to businesses of all sizes. The intuitive ease of use, and the ability to customize as needed has made this a very versatile software package.

Cons

This software package is so robust, it feels at times that it is impossible to learn about all of the features within the application. this forces me to depend on consultants and onsite engagements with Epicor employees to find new features that may be applicable to your business process. These engagements while incredibly useful are expensive.

Vendor response

Hi Anthony, Thank you for your feedback on Prophet 21. We are glad you find it robust and versatile. We also appreciate your comments on further learning.

The software has seriously helped us grow our business tremendously and keep a watchful eye on the inventory, accounting, and CRM.

Pros

Inventory control is a dream with advanced demand forecasting. Allows your employees to work on other aspects of your business. Extremely low barrier to entry for training new employees on the software. We think it is very intuitive.

Cons

Reporting has always lacked; however, there are many very good 3rd party tools out there.

Vendor response

Hi William, thank you for your feedback about Epicor Prophet 21. We're glad to hear it is helping with inventory control. Your feedback is invaluable. Please email us at customerreferences@epicor.com to share additional comments and learn about our customer reference program.

Over sold on a very difficult to implement and then actually use product takes more time to process

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Robust with a lot of power- which would be great but seems to be ineffective and inefficient in its actual use. Very time consuming for users

Cons

Have to buy more and more add one to do what we we sold it would do. Takes more time to process orders than anything in the past.

Vendor response

Bart - Thank you for your response, we value your feedback. We are working with our team to contact you for a follow up.

Distribution Software

Reviewed 5 years ago

We use the software to run the business and it does fine, but we have to have a lot of other tools to allow us to do some of the critical pieces of the business like procurement . It is not designed to do a highly level analysis need in the supply chain.

Pros

The software is relatively easy to use and the on-line training making bring new staff on board easy.

Cons

The software needs to have a better ability to create custom reports and produce financial statements. The inventory module needs to have more stability to it. We find errors often. The purchasing system is not adequate for a high level supply chain.

Vendor response

Hi Marilyn, Thank you for your feedback about Epicor Prophet 21 We're glad to hear the solution has been easy to learn. However, we're sorry to hear the inventory module has not been stable. Please send us an email to socialmedia@epicor.com with your contact info so we can assist you in delivering a solution. Sincerely, The Epicor Social Team
