As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

It is great for startups and people that are still developing ideas. Once you are in the market it does not really have much of a use within an organization, at that stage it just becomes the reference to what core your business is. Tracking business growth is great, but again only for first 1-3 years in the market (depending on growth).

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • Great for startups that are still working on their idea.
  • Preparing for pitching and presenting.
  • People don't need business knowledge in order to write a professional business plan, everything is explained in details.
  • Simplicity.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • It is software on its own and there are no abilities to connect to any other software so you have to input data constantly.
  • If you start within this software most likely over time this will be just your reference for the definition of your business, once you start growing there is not much to use here, better solutions are out there.
  • It is not a management tool as they advertise it.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.

We did not really find a similar solution. All other solutions are focused on project management, [there's] nothing on generating a business plan. There is nothing on this level that helps people without any business experience write the plan. They have samples, instructions what to write where, how to prepare for pitching, and generate dashboards. Nothing in this market gets anywhere close to this solution.
