    We have really just begun to capture some data, but advantages so far are job costing, tracking/scheduling, and analysis.

    Pros

    Easy to navigate, comprehensive data collection and analysis.

    Cons

    Some fields are not readily searchable, or smart. Many softwares today allow you start typing and it knows what you are looking for - making recommendation or gray line filling in so you can simply hit enter.

    Reasons for Switching to Genius ERP

    Better support, better software (easier to navigate), more intensive training.

    I am looking to upgrade our system, because it is by far one of the worst (least intuitive) accounting software programs I've ever used (and I've been in the industry for 10+ years).

    Pros

    The accounting functions of our business can be tracked with the same software as our ERP

    Cons

    Finding reports, and basic accounting functions is not intuitive and their online "help" is vague and NOT helpful. There is no way to retrieve past bank reconciliations (that I have found) which is inconvenient when you don't have access to previously saved records. Hopefully they've improved on later versions.

    Overall, we are happy to be working with Genius ERP.
    It provide use with all the informations necessary to make decision regarding production and purchassing.
    Today we feel in control of our production cost and our inventory and can focus most of our time on product devellopment and in our continus improvement process.

    Pros

    I really like the simplicity of the software, it's simple and clear with the right amount of information on screen for the need of a small to mid-size business, it makes it easy to use for new employee. The UI is pleasant to use, and make it simple for user to find an option or to understand where to click.

    Technical support is quick to repond when you have a major issue.

    The transfert from engineering to manufacturing is fast and easy, the integration with Solidwork is simple tu use and makes it really .

    Cons

    I really don't like the fact that they make changes to the software and force sometime a way of working instead of adding a configuration option to let the user choose how he prefere the software to repond.

    They choose simplicity, but sometime it makes it diffcult to twaek the software to your need when it could have been achieved with a simple control box in the configuration menu.

    We are only a few months past go live but compared to our previous experience(s) it's been very smooth sailing and we still have plenty to do to maximize our ROI in this product. We are already seeing some big wins in reduced hours for purchasing and receiving and I expect over time we'll reduce our transaction costs by about 30% which is a good win in anyones eyes.

    Pros

    There are some very well thought out features for HMLV manufacturers, the strength of the BoM's combined with the Engineering Lifecycle Documents gives a great tool-set for managing preliminary purchases and production. The UI is intuitive and easy to follow with excellent consistency between modules which makes it simple to work with.

    Cons

    On the flip side there have been a couple of things that we have encountered that seemed at first to be less than genius when compared to other parts of the system. We found this was pretty frustrating but compared to what we were using previously it's a long way ahead. The genius approach is very regimented and while this could be deemed as inflexible it also adds to stability.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with Genius. I'm glad that you could see some clear ROI in such a short time and I hope you find that we continue to be user-friendly for you.
