Aptean Intuitive ERP

If you have a programmer and are willing to let them learn the system and want software to function the way you run your business this may work well. If you do not have a programmer on staff and are willing to change your business to match the software but think in the future you may wish to modify your ERP software this may work out well. If you want something you can modify quickly this is not a good choice. If you do not wish to modify the code nor your business practices an evaluation would be required. It does allow substantial modifications, but there are areas it may not fit with your business so well. It is possible that Intuitive may happen to make the options you require available in the future.

Ross ERP

Ross ERP was designed for and excels in process manufacturing environments. It is best leveraged in companies with strong management support for technology with a strong understanding of the business and manufacturing processes and a willingness to engage in the design and operation of the system. It is less suited for organizations looking for cut and paste solutions that don't' require input from the users and management. It is whatever you make of it.

Pros

  • Easily allows adding fields to the database. The data manager reads all fields, so just adding a field automatically brings it over.
  • Optionally purchasing a tool called "Form Wizard" allows non-programmers to add new fields to a form and move around existing fields freeing up the developer to work on other things.
  • They have a wrapper for the DevXpress grid which allows individual users to add and remove columns pertinent to their specific job.

  • Development: the facet that sold us on Ross was the interaction with the user community and the commitment to development with the users in mind. They are by far the most customer driven company I've worked with in terms of product improvement and development. Companies of all sizes are heard and they're suggestions coalesced into a development plan that delivers value for your maintenance dollars.
  • Lot Traceability: Ross ERP gives us a competitive edge in time for lot trace across multiple sku's and distribution lanes.
  • Process manufacturing management. Ross recipe and process spec management is very robust, allowing us to capture and manage our yields and costs across labor and numerous types of ingredient inputs. Process manufacturing can be more complex then discrete, and Ross was built for process manufacturing.

Cons

  • Documentation. The design of en extensible system works well once you figure it out. Some things can be tricky and time consuming.
  • They provide no support for customizations. I can understand not wanting to help write specific custom code, but they refuse to even tell anyone what a method on a base class does unless you pay them $200 an hour.
  • Their proprietary design can cause modifications to take longer. If you use one of their forms you can not load it, you must call their launch function and put you code in the "Execute" method. If they were more standardized the documentation issue would not be so bad.

  • The user interface is under constant improvement, but its a difficult balance between flexibility and ease of use. They have made great strides in recent releases, but have room to grow.
  • Built in reporting and analytics. Again, they are making great improvements over the last several releases, but have room to keep improving.

We have a lot invested in this from user education to customizations. It would be hard to justify the cost for changing.

Alternatives Considered

This is the only ERP product I have used.
John P. Maher profile photo
We found dynamics too new and too segregated at the Time. SAP was too rigid and expensive, and ProcessPro was a little too small and lacked features. What truly swayed us to Ross over AX was the customer community and the support and interaction that customer community received from all levels of the Ross organization. The level of service and consultation was like nothing you would get from and SAP or MS.

Return on Investment

  • Since we can customize it I would like to think it has been beneficial.
  • It is difficult to measure how well business would have done without the software.
John P. Maher profile photo
  • I don't have hard numbers on ROI. For our business, ERP is a requirement, and Ross has excelled at meeting those requirements. We have nearly doubled the business, with perhaps a 20% increase in headcount managing those orders and invoices. We would not have been able to do that without the efficiencies of process we gained with Ross.
