I would say if you have a staff that's already experienced in the 24SevenOffice program that would be best. People who are brand new to it will have too much time ramping up and training. Also, you'd better have a rock-solid network infrastructure if you want success with this program. A business with less tech-savvy workers just wouldn't work.

Blue Cherry is competitively priced to compete with other solutions. It is well suited where a good training system is in place in the business and where at least a small IT team is present. I also would recommend on-prem installations as opposed to cloud-based as I have heard negative feedback about the cloud-based product. Blue Cherry may be more appropriate for companies that either are still developing their processes and can be tweaked to fit within the Blue Cherry ecosystem, or in larger companies where they can afford potentially substantial costs to customize Blue Cherry to their needs or desires.

Pros
24SevenOffice
  • Excellent UI that is easy to use. All features are a breeze.
  • Because of the depth at which it has data, it can be used very well.
  • Its integration with other ERP software is also possible for better analysis.

  • Manage production orders which is the primary portion of the business.
  • Manage Sales Orders including allocation based on rules so we can manage order fulfilment successfully.
  • Manage Designs and promotion to Styles which works so much smoother when integrated in the same base software.
  • Manage Invoicing and credit memos and be able to report on NSR and total sales, units moved, etc.

Cons
24SevenOffice
  • Unfortunately, usability is a major issue at times. I hear complaints about dropped network traffic, and it's not our infrastructure.
  • The interface is confusing. We have to train new employees with a lot of detailed instructions which shouldn't be necessary.
  • We have had to pay for any support on the above issues.

  • Blue Cherry being so robust can be quite a bit to manage and really requires good training of users.
  • Documentation is not the best due to the various possible configurations you can do with this system. It is difficult to document for all use cases.
  • Consistency throughout the product as far as language used in different screens referring to the same item, but language can be customized so it can generally be made to match as needed.
  • I think some really complete documentation on a few common use cases could be developed to help train users with properly formatted training sessions.
  • Blue Cherry Add-Ons generally feel like they have not been well tested before being released and sold to their customers. We had issue (some major where we stopped using them) with pretty much every single add-on we have purchased, from B2b eComm, Shopify connector, CSC (Collaborative Supply Chain), NuOrder connector as some major examples.

CGS
I give this rating because CGS has a 'by design' policy meaning that if the product has been functioning a specific way for some time....even if that functionality is buggy or simply incorrect...they will call that 'by design' meaning you need to have a MOD (modification) done which means you need to pay for it. They generally seem to start between $5,000 to $15,000 USD even for a simple change like the length of a field that does not match from one screen to another, or adding a simple column to a table which contains a calculated value meaning it does not need to be stored in the database.

Alternatives Considered
24SevenOffice
24SevenOffice has its own pros and cons just like any other software. It is a great software for an organization to do project management or financial management. It stacks up very competitively against others and is probably in the top 3. the UI that is offered by this software surpasses all the others that I have used and/or mentioned above. It is a breeze to understand most parts of the software by yourself. I think in terms of support there could be some improvement that can be possible and will result in much better feedback from its clients. Overall I give it a great rating in terms of usability and capability to handle the majority of business management, project management, and financial management features.

Return on Investment
24SevenOffice
  • We were using a fairly similar program from an ROI perspective previously so I can't say it's had a big effect.
  • That said the network issues represent lost hours/money.
  • The added training is also expensive.

  • Blue Cherry has been part of helping our company to grow 600%+ over the last 10 years and is able to handle the ever-increasing slope of that upward scaling growth we continue to see.
  • Blue Cherry PLM has really helped the design team to work much better with the ERP as it is integrated.
  • Reporting and inquiries have been very important to many teams, in particular, the planning & support team to really manage large wholesale customers well.
