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.

Altus Dynamics works very hard to make the solution work for the client. I don't see a disadvantage to using this solution.

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.

  • Dimension combinations allow us to report on expenses in various ways.
  • The support from Altus Dynamics is superb. They truly understand our business processes and help mold the software solution around that.
  • The migration to the Altus Dynamics ERP is one of the smoothest deployments of my career.

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.

  • Custom development/reports are difficult to do on our own, however Altus Dynamics is open to assisting with that.

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 came from a product that was specific to our industry. It was old, tired and did not do many of the things the Altus Dynamics solution does. The only other product that we seriously considered was Microsoft Dynamics GP, however our finance team felt that product was too light for our needs and growth

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.

  • As a technician it's hard for me to say what effect the ROI has had on our organization, however our finance team seems satisfied on it. We look forward to deploying the staff dashboards for better financial tracking throughout our whole organization.
