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.

Out of 1-10, my likelihood to recommend score is a 1, but only because zero wasn't an option; however, if it was, that would have been my choice. We already renewed for 2023, but are already making plans to migrate to another platform in Q4 and cancel at the end of this renewal.

The Lead to Contact/Account Conversion is very intuitive. Deals, Sales Orders, and Contract Zoho Sign work well together. Read full review 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.

I have seen numerous obvious business application needs to be brought to the attention that is still 2-3 years old without an update Unified User Interface and back end functionality/configuration across applications Read full review Usability
While the software is easy to use and pick up, the different user interfaces and limits across the application make it difficult and slow to implement additional applications quickly and seamlessly across the organization. If the User interface was more consistent we would be able to pick up and train on new apps more efficiently

Support is great as a customer, as a partner I get moved to that team more often and find issues in the support being provided. It also appears that the support agents do not take into account all the information provided and default back to the "step 1 of the playbook" instead of taking into account the business reason the support is being requested and understanding the steps already taken.

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.

During the Demo, Zoho One performed well; however, post-implementation - the product has fallen short on all fronts.

Read full review It has had an overall negative impact since we migrated from HubSpot due to the overall lack of support. Our users are frustrated with the complexity and lack of consistency in the admin portals. CRM is the only tool that is ready for business at scale. Read full review ScreenShots
