Acctivate is best suited for very basic inventory needs. It syncs up well with Standalone Quickbooks and tracks physical inventory really well. I wouldn't recommend it if you need a complex suite for a larger business. Needs a lot of improvement. If you need a vendor, purchasing, PO system - I would suggest looking elsewhere.

No solution is perfect, but I would say that Thrive is a particularly robust and complex solution that's intended to tackle major demand management and inventory forecasting problems. Smaller companies simply won't need a solution that's so all-encompassing. I would recommend waiting unitl you know that you need it before moving forward with a solution like Thrive.

Thrive Technologies
  • Although it's simpler than many alternatives, it's a highly complex system and at times we felt lost during the transition period.
  • We didn't get the results we had imagined when looking at their case studies and marketing materials. I understand many factors go into those things, and their case studies are not necessarily indicative of typical results, but your mileage may vary.
  • Inventory replenishment alerts about potential stockouts weren't always reliable.

Alternatives Considered
Alterity, Inc.
Acctivate is at the bottom of the list. It is old and outdated.

Abas ERP was what we had used previously, and though it did its job adequately, it lacked the forecasting, demand management, and inventory replenishment sophistication of Thrive. We reached a point where we felt it was untenable to supplement the previous system on our own which necessitated the switch to Thrive.
