Abas ERP

ABAS by far offers the most bang for the buck. We are able to handle all of our business functions through ABAS and also have additional features like Business Apps, Business Intelligence, Vendor and Customer portals, as well as many other features that many other ERP packages didn't have. It has allowed us to consolidate our software packages and also provide visibility since everything is now connected.

E2 Shop System

E2 is great at getting you information via reports and you can drill down to specific details. This has helped us calculate hours, costs and track non-conformances to allow for improvements.The scheduling module is complicated and Shoptech does not offer much in the way of virtual training on implementation. We are paying for onsite training and implementation. All other aspects are pretty straight forward.

Pros

  • Flexibility. ABAS is fully customizable. This allows us to create a work environment that is as custom as we are. Some ERP software packages force you to adopt their methods. With ABAS we can build the system the way we want it to work.
  • Adaptable. ABAS has the ability to work with other software packages and provide a seamless connection. We use Solid Works for our engineering designs. ABAS is connected to Solid Works and this eliminates transfer errors while reducing the time it takes for engineers to load bills of material.
  • Service. ABAS has well-trained service technicians. The time it takes to get a response is minimal and the network of knowledge their support group has, helps to streamline any tasks we may present or questions we may have.

  • E2 is very user friendly. Once configured, users can start using without a long training time. We implemented in stages so they would not get overwhelmed.
  • E2 has a ton of reports available. We print time tracking on a daily basis to review hours and steps during manufacturing.
  • E2 allows you to customize reports using Crystal Reports to allow you to get the information you need out of the reports.

Cons

  • ABAS is headquartered in Germany with a US based headquarters in Virginia. Some of the programming structures were based on European methods that differed somewhat from the way business is done in the US. ABAS-USA has worked to modify the system so that it is in tune with US business practices and has made great strides in this effort. For the average user, the structures may go unnoticed, but for the more advanced user, some of the field names that are used for advanced reporting might be in German. However, ABAS-USA has recently been updating the programming language to be fully in English.
  • Because ABAS is growing rapidly, more complex customizations might take longer to complete than normal. ABAS appears to be bringing on even more technicians to handle the increased workload so the concern is waning.

  • Annual maintenance costs for updates and support is rather costly.
  • You must really think about how you will use E2 so when you implement the software it is right the first time.

Alternatives Considered

These other software packages all have strengths but for what we were looking for in one system, to handle most of our business processes, but also allow the flexibility to be customized (without the need to be placed on a "like to have" waiting list), ABAS gave us that ability, hands down.
Josh Schroeder profile photo
E2 seemed to be more user friendly and offered more modules and integration into our quickbooks program. We were able to import all of our customers and vendors easily. This was the main selling point on E2.

Return on Investment

  • ABAS has the capability to handle many of the processes that we did on various software platforms. Since we've been able to consolidate these platforms, the cost of subscriptions, maintenance and management hasve been reduced.
  • Efficiency was a noticeable impact right from the start. In the past, reports from one system had to be loaded into another in order to provide the analysis needed for business decisions. Connections to our design software also reduced the amount of time our engineers spent manually creating bills of material and purchase requisitions.
  • The ability to see what's happening in various business functions all in one place has helped with decision making and provided the data necessary to ask the right questions when arriving at those hard decisions.
Josh Schroeder profile photo
  • Allowed us to streamline production process by printing a job traveler with manufacturing steps for each job. Previously, we used a punch clock to track time and did not isolate what steps were needed to do each job. This allows us to calculate costs much better. The ROI on calculated costs is high.
  • E2 can track non-conformances. By tracking time to fix manufacturing defects, we can focus our attention on corrective actions by priority. This will reduce common failures and increase our profitability. This ROI is very high as well.
