BlueCherry

Blue Cherry is competitively priced to compete with other solutions. It is well suited where a good training system is in place in the business and where at least a small IT team is present. I also would recommend on-prem installations as opposed to cloud-based as I have heard negative feedback about the cloud-based product. Blue Cherry may be more appropriate for companies that either are still developing their processes and can be tweaked to fit within the Blue Cherry ecosystem, or in larger companies where they can afford potentially substantial costs to customize Blue Cherry to their needs or desires.

Pros

BlueCherry

  • Manage production orders which is the primary portion of the business.
  • Manage Sales Orders including allocation based on rules so we can manage order fulfilment successfully.
  • Manage Designs and promotion to Styles which works so much smoother when integrated in the same base software.
  • Manage Invoicing and credit memos and be able to report on NSR and total sales, units moved, etc.

FloristWare

  • The reporting tool is powerful - provided the product categories and sales accounts have been well thought through. The fixed reports have been intuitively created; but the export feature makes them even more powerful, so as to be tailor made for the individual business.
  • The marketing tools campaign builders, fundraisers, advertising analyzers, etc. are effective and have brought us business we would otherwise not have seen, and saved us money we would otherwise have thrown at the wrong advertisers. Customer data can be pulled and sorted in a multitude of ways, depending on the purpose. We use the marketing tools routinely.
  • The financial tools make my life easier. Need to file and pay sales tax? A Sales Report Summary for any date range instantly gives gross sales, taxable sales, sales tax due. Need a current inventory report? A push-button report is generated, by product category. Need to know how this month's sales compare to the same month last year? Not a problem.

Cons

BlueCherry

  • Blue Cherry being so robust can be quite a bit to manage and really requires good training of users.
  • Documentation is not the best due to the various possible configurations you can do with this system. It is difficult to document for all use cases.
  • Consistency throughout the product as far as language used in different screens referring to the same item, but language can be customized so it can generally be made to match as needed.
  • I think some really complete documentation on a few common use cases could be developed to help train users with properly formatted training sessions.

FloristWare

  • I would like to see the ability to save work and continue later (as in pause order entering).
  • I would like to see in the future a more advanced routing module.

  • Blue Cherry PLM has really helped the design team to work much better with the ERP as it is integrated.
  • Reporting and inquiries have been very important to many teams, in particular, the planning & support team to really manage large wholesale customers well.
