Cetec ERP

For our business, Cetec ERP works very well because of all the capabilities it has with traceability, restrictions, and access, and having the data live for any user to see at the same time. The way the system is set up for order processing is more strict which is better for us since it helps with accuracy and traceability. For the production side, since our company is not a manufacturing site, it can be a little overwhelming since there are a lot of fields/data that we do not use, simply because it does not apply to us. Other than that module being a little too advanced for our company, all of the features included "out of the box" are well worth the affordable price that they have for this ERP system.

For a smaller company I can see this being a realistic solution. The cost is relatively low, complexity and install isn't too painful, and it's not difficult to use for the most part. As a large enterprise ERP system I believe this is a bit too simple. It is a cheaper alternative but would be hard to use if we were much larger.

Pros

Cetec ERP

  • Training and Implementation.
  • Support is great.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Exact Global

  • It is easy to use in Production Planning.
  • The bill of materials module is fully integrated with the engineering changes module.
Arlex Guzman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cetec ERP

  • Role Descriptions: There are default roles that Cetec ERP has already created for you. However, these roles are not detailed as to what access each role has and it makes it difficult to assign these default roles.
  • Reporting: While Cetec ERP's default reports are detailed, there is only minimal customization of reports allowed out of the box. They do have an add-on available for purchase where you can freely customize reports, but our company isn't at that point to purchase this add-on as we only need a small bit of customization beyond what comes out of the box.
Alan Galvan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Exact Global

  • The necessity to buy individual modules to fit specific needs is a bit of a pain, it feels like you're being nickle and dimed.
  • Revision control on bills of material and parts is not intuitive or easy. We have not purchased the engineering change module, but it appears it may be needed to really implement this.
  • It's difficult to transfer engineering models from popular solid modeling software, requiring a third party solution to really make the transfer work as designed.

Alternatives Considered

Cetec ERP

We had been a customer of Cetec on their Legacy system for 20+ years and were always satisfied with their product and support.

Globe has more modules and let's say it is the successor of Macola Progression

Return on Investment

Cetec ERP

  • Accuracy: Now that we can restrict access to approved users, our accuracy of inventory has improved.
  • Financial Cleanup: Importing financials that were not yet balanced from previous system caused a ripple and we now have to clean up in this new system.
Alan Galvan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Exact Global

  • Tracking bills of materials has been very useful. I would appreciate better revision control here and integration with modeling software.
  • Quality metric tracking is not really done in Exact, instead in a sister software called Synergy. We have this and I don't particularly like it, especially for the cost.
  • Shipping is still a bit clunky for us and we rely on more manual methods vs. the optional shipping module.
