Erply
ERPLY is really great for POS ERP system, it has wonderful mobile interface. It lacks in the more in-depth needs of international, multi-channel business. If you are a local store or a store with multiple locations in 1 country with on-site 1 location sales this will work. For a company that works in different countries, has back orders, has multiple Amazon and e-commerce site integrations, this is less suited to your needs.

Ideally it can work with any kind of retailer but workarounds and customisations required to handle deliveries.

Cons
Erply
  • They were not able to adapt to help us with backorder reports, export function they created for us never worked properly and ultimately they were unable to fix.
  • In our accounts, we ship to different countries from the same stock, these countries have different ecomm sites, they were unable to integrate with more than one ecomm site, requiring us to manually put in the second site orders which was hugely time consuming.
  • We invested a lot of money and time without progress. We found it difficult to work with their engineers overseas even our UK team couldn't connect with them and in the US we found our NY rep without answers.

  • Data Director leaves room for improvement as it can be very tricky while dealing with a large number of master data records. Sometimes it doesn't write delete actions to POS.
  • Furniture retail is another area where improvement is required to handle deliveries.
  • Newer versions don't support data replicator which was the most reliable data tool with earlier LS Retail versions. There should be a replacement for this tool.

Stripe may be better for internet and virtual focused sales, while ERPLY shines with their POS system and reader for physical transactions and sales. Stripe has never offered us a physical card reader and the customer support for ERPLY seems to be great and well-versed in the few times we have needed help to set something up. ERPLY is best suited amongst competitions for its ease of use, attractive marketing and branding, and that it just plain works without a headache

It scores higher on overall user experience and matured features set.

Return on Investment
Erply
  • We put a lot of money and time into developing custom reports with their off shore team that never worked.
  • They were inexpensive way for us to test integrating ecommerce sites to our ERP system.
  • They provided a decent, basic accounting module that enabled us to save on investing in separate accounting software.
