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.

SYSPRO

Almost, since day one Syspro has been saving us time and making us more productive as a whole. We have been able to grow our revenue exponentially with keeping our personnel needs at nearly the same level. Syspro is a great system for an organization that has multiple needs like Distribution and Manufacturing and/or multiple locations.

Pros

Cetec ERP

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

SYSPRO

  • If you are a small or medium business, SYSPRO is a great fit due to its flexible design. If you perform warehousing and inventory management Syspro performs these functions very well.
  • SYSPRO has been around since 1978 and it shows in its development and support. I have been through several re-sellers for our support function, however we have now moved to SYSPRO corporate for our technical support and development/customizations. SYSPRO corporate supports their customers VERY well.
  • The SYSPRO interface is highly customizable and nicely laid out. Even with the basic implementation, you can still get off the ground and run without performing too many modifications.
  • SYSPRO forms and reporting templates are easy to customize/modify.

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.

SYSPRO

  • We have been using 6.0 and the security is not so good.
  • The program is a bit difficult to learn for rollout
  • The Learning Channel could be improved - downloadable mp4's would be nice to include in the program vs moving back and forth to the learning channel. Since the program is difficult to learn, it would be nice to be able to utilize the learning channel within the program. Also, the learning channel is pretty complicated to use.

I've heard many reports from our users stating how difficult Syspro is to use and navigate. From an average standpoint, the Syspro Administrator has to invest a lot of time in setting up the user for success. Once the groundwork is applied, SYSPRO's overall usability becomes fair easier to the average user.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SYSPRO

We evaluated 8 of the top vendors 16 years ago before we selected Syspro and frankly, none of them came close to meeting all of our needs at a reasonable price point. We still look back at that process and think it was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

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

SYSPRO

  • Significant returns regarding our ability to quickly process orders - both direct entry, EDI and web orders.
  • Significant returns through giving us the ability to serve configurable products to our customers - We used the product configurator to accomplish this.
  • Simplifies the shipping process and makes it easy for us to process shipments.
  • Significant returns in terms of automation and cutting down on expense.
