Pros

Cons

The software can integrate with some of the open source PLM Tool like Oddo, and open Source MES and IOT tools. this can create a complete opensorce ecosystem for business

It was good at the beginning but later we are having second thoughts about it

Pros

It's super user-friendly and customizable and they provide easy to use administration option, deployment is also really easy once you get the hang of it

Cons

Performance once database and simultaneous user request increase and sometimes the report generation is really slow and it can not handle large company requirements

Easy to use, and highly customizable, but plauged by bugs.

Reviewed on 09/09/2022

The product has great potential! I wish the frappe org would focus more on all the technical debt, rather than new features. Unfortunately, they generally get paid for new features by customers, not for fixing bad code.

Pros

I love the ability to customize forms, while it could be easier, it sure is nice to make changes without code.

Cons

Bugs. Unfortunately, open source means that some code is not high quality. Another factor is the poor management of Git pull requests. I've created several bug fixes that languished until deactivated by automated robot after a month or two with little response from product owners. Many of these bugs are quite serious, particularly around the payroll module. Many, less serious and obvious issues, exist over major versions without resolution.

Reasons for Switching to ERPNext

I liked the customization and the project management modules. I extensively use time-sheets and project costing, which doesn't exist or is premium with other products. In the past, I've supported larger products such as MS Dynamics GP, which had a poor interface when compared to ERPNext.

An experience using ERPNext in a hardware product startup in the E-Mobility Space

Reviewed on 14/09/2022

Pros

The fact that the software is well integrated with a wide variety of modules. Other ERP systems would end up with us having a multitude of different softwares each handling their own niche, and all tied together by just Single Sign On.

Here, I am able to provide everyone in the company with a login to the ERP system and have access to not just ERP features, but also Project Management, a Wiki and a Learning Managment System.

Cons

The HR and Payroll Module can improve quite a bit. The way incentive payments are handled require external programming to design an automated performance based pay. Leaves are also not mutable if a mistake was made during the Leave Policy Assignment which was realised only half-way through the year. This also doesn't allow for a leave policy for a person to be changed in the middle of the leave policy period. This is quite important considering the constant switching of employees between Work From Home, Hybrid and Remote, each of which will have a different leave policy within the company.

Odoo looked like it had way too many sub-modules which seemed like quite a bit of effort to put together. The monolithic structure of ERPNext looked good at the time, but it seems like ERPNext is going down the smaller app route now. SAP was just out of our reach in terms of Budget.

Pros

That it is open source and has all the features of a proprietary ERP like dynamics nav. Is ease to implement, support and customize due to the fact that it uses only open source code , python js etc

The best choice for teams that have some technical knowledge in house

Reviewed on 28/07/2019

The community is vibrant and fast. There are telegram messenger groups for live communication. There is a super active forum platform. And there is a structured and well maintained github project. If you want to be part of this community, it's easy to get rolling.

Pros

The extensibility and flexibility of ERPNext is unrivaled. Every field you create becomes instantly available as an API point in the powerful interface of the ERP software. All relevant core features of an ERP system are mature and help you learn to do it the right way as a company. The team is rigid and consequent in making sure, that this streamlined process of creating opportunities, quotations, sales orders and sales invoices is kept intact which is very healthy and keeps customizations sane.

Cons

ERPNext is not yet easy and straight forward to use. If you have no idea of ERP software and you have no technical skills at all this is not for you. I would love to see the team focus more on the UX of the interface and the ease of use for new and very occasional users. The software feels like it's really made for experts and daily users. That said, we have compared ERPNext with Salesforce and SAP and the open source solution really shines in comparison. But having all the ERP world suck at UX does not mean that this is an unsolvable problem. Also the documentation of ERPNext is not job or use case driven and very technical at times. We have started to try to help this. But it's easy to ask and not so easy to deliver. Work in progress ...

SAP Business ByDesign and Salesforce CPQ & Billing

Reasons for Choosing ERPNext

We compared ERPNext and other solutions with our best of breed approach that had and still has a bunch of different solutions. The challenge with this is that data is scattered across multiple systems making it very hard for employees to get the full picture. Trying to tie this together via the APIs of the best of breed solutions was cumbersome and did not really work. So we decided to get ERPNext as our central place for data and single source of truth for structured data.

Salesforce CPQ & Billing

Reasons for Switching to ERPNext

ERPNext is very flexible and extesible through the API. We do have technical skills both for DevOp and for software development in house. And working against Salesforce or SAP would have been much more limited. Also the incredibly high licensing costs for our team of 150 people drove us towards ERPNext. We now heavily invest in the community and still save on license costs significantly.

Most Efficient ERP

Reviewed on 28/08/2020

Pros

Free and Open Source
Being a FOSS lover, the best part I see with ERPNext its a truly fully open souce, you will get all the modules available, unlike other companies claim to be open source but they arn't.

Communication
Tracking of communication of internal team and clients was a big challenge for our organization, the way this is handled in ERPNext is so simple and intuitive.

Dynamic Customization
One need not to wait for the application developer to change the layout of screen, add or change new fields in transactions, designing of print formats and layouts, all such stuff is managed dynamically.

Payment Gateways
Using this facility we have noticed an increase of 10% in payment collection from the customer, we use razor pay payment gateway with ERPNext so after creating an invoice one can send payment request to customer and after the customer paid the invoice your account gets updated.

Cons

With FOSS projects, its natural to have more support issues, and there is not guarantee of time that when your issue will get addressed.

Most flexible ERP

Reviewed on 15/09/2022

One of the best ERPs for a mid-sized company.

Pros

ERPNext is all in one suite and hence most of the issues related to data structure are resolved at the beginning itself if the implementation is done for all the modules at one go. Secondly, customization options are almost limitless and you don't need to be from an IT background to carry out some of the basic changes as per your business requirement. Document flow and control are also very easy to learn and implement giving you the requisite flexibility of each function which does help in the implementation.

Cons

Except that stock and account ledgers do not offer monthly/quarterly/yearly reports and no comparison of the ledgers can be done with the previous period, there is nothing that can be negative for ERPNext.

ERPNext Software Review

Reviewed on 23/10/2021

After a failed attempt to transition from Tally ERP to Odoo software due to our complex business process, we were able to successfully integrate ERPNext software into our organization. ERPNext has been in use at our company for the past two years, and we recommend it to small and medium-sized enterprises that need to use project, inventory and production modules frequently.

Pros

- Simple and easy-to-use interface.
- Open-source ERP software, no licensing cost required.
- Customization is simple and requires no coding.
- Simple to configure according to business needs.
- Simplified reporting system.
- Well-maintained and actively supported.

Cons

- Big enterprises are not recommended.
- The software is not suitable for anti-free software organizations.
- Still a newcomer to the market, and has yet to earn the trust of businesses.
- Customized versions have upgrade issues.
- Complex setup for roles and permission management.
- The documentation can be further improved.

Fully featured and customisable ERP system

Reviewed on 14/09/2022

Pros

The ease of use of the web interface is excellent. It's easy to see the status of a document at a glance and to move it to the next step of the process.
Information entered in one area is automatically available elsewhere, such as contact information, shipping addresses, etc. It's all so well integrated.
As well as being integrated it's also very customisable. Fields can be added to any document for any purpose. Custom scripts can be added to perform automated tasks.

Cons

I found it quite a steep learning curve for setting up the system; creating and importing all the details for the component parts we use and creating the Bills of Materials. But once it's done (correctly!) it's a breeze to use.
Using the system to calculate how much of a product it is possible to manufacture and for what date is not straightforward. This area of the system needs some attention from the development or documentation teams.
In some ways the flexibility of the system is a disadvantage. There can be many different ways to accomplish the same thing, but they will have slightly different effects on other parts of the system. There does need to be a "recommended" and "standard" method of doing certain things which is given in the documentation.

Great product if you have a good internal IT team

Reviewed on 10/09/2022

Good product. Technically it is evolving beautifully. I have seen it since 2015. I am very positive about its future.
They need to work on building a strong partner network who can handhold the users, train and coach them. Just providing great tech is not enough, implementation and ongoing consulting/ coaching of users is MUST.

Pros

The product is well conceptualised, and superbly designed for a small-medium firm. Their Open Source approach is great and provides tremendous value for money.

Cons

Reporting is not user friendly. Tables are not easily readable and the scrolling is painful.

Finance module is not designed keeping in mind Indian Chartered Accountants. They find it cumbersome and ask the firm to maintain data in their favourite Tally. This has to be addressed.
