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.

FinancialForce ERP

There are many lacking features so if your company is looking to grow, FinancialForce will not be able to scale along with your company. If your company is already past its growth stage and there aren't too many transactions to record, then FinancialForce may be suited for your company.

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.

FinancialForce ERP

  • The revenue recognition module is very basic. The system does not create deferred revenue waterfall schedules.
  • FinancialForce does not have a way of handling prepaid items where the expense gets deferred into the future.
  • Although FinancialForce can create invoices, there is no way to connect payments to the invoice in an automated fashion. When payments gets entered into the system, they must manually be matched against invoices. It is not good for scalability.

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.

FinancialForce ERP

Infinitely better. We are much happier with FinancialForce ERP rather than NetSuite. This allows us so much more flexibility and growth potential. There is a good chance we will use other functionality of FinancialForce in the future to stay within the same ecosystem. We selected FinancialForce ERP mostly because of its compatibility with Salesforce, as that is the hub of our business applications.

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.

FinancialForce ERP

  • Implementing FinancialForce stalled the growth of the accounting department. Because of the limitations, a lot of manual work had to be done in the systems and many schedules were kept out of the system. Instead of focusing on process improvements or, the accounting team had to do tasks that could have easily been solved with a more sophisticated ERP.
