Cosential

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

WinMan ERP Software

Winman ERP is well suited to our business and we have not felt the need to look further. The great strength for us is the MRP facility but each business is unique and must make it's own assessment. The accounting side just works - nothing to add here.

WinMan ERP Software

  • MRP - our inventory forecasting is done within Winman using the MRP facility. This allows us to place timely orders with our suppliers.
  • Inventory transfers and value uplifts (to reflect actual landed cost) are simply catered for and fully integrated into the accounting system.
  • Integration with our website ensures that accurate data flows throughout the whole process.
Cameron Read | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.

Return on Investment

Cosential

  • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
  • Helped us quantify effort.
  • Provides great reports for management.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

WinMan ERP Software

  • The key thing is to be able to do more with less people, removing as much repetitive work as possible.
  • More automation allows us to grow the business whilst being able to concentrate on core competencies that cannot be automated such as product development, branding and marketing.
  • Inventory planning is simplified through the use of MRP. Top level skus are readily converted into POs for timely component procurement which means we have the best opportunity to fill sales orders.
