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.

If you are doing all the different streams of business music stores or similar small businesses would have Rain Point of Sale is a great solution. If your store is more similar to a gift shop or cafe it may be too much for your needs.

  • Integration. One customer list. One product item list. One inventory count. POS and website store that function in real time with each other.
  • Responsiveness. New features and tweaks to the user interface are actually constantly being developed based on our feedback and requests.
  • Multiple location support. We have two stores and many of the other platforms we shopped didn't have good solutions for that. Rain lets us have a combined product database with different reorder preferences. Also, a new update to the system made transferring serial numbered products even easier.

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.

  • Reorder amount preset options could more sophisticated. I'd like to see the option to automatically "round up" the preset reorder qty up to 10 or 12 or 6, etc. This was possible previously but they added other options that changed the automated reorder suggestion to the difference between your current count the ideal count you have set for each product. This is good for some items, but not for others. Guitar strings come in a box of 12, but sheet music can be any number. And then some items we purchase in a box and then sell individually. Rain does allow for that in the purchase order automated reorder quantity. Mostly, I change each reorder quantity as I am copying and pasting the product codes into the vendor's website. Not huge deal breaker. And I believe they will eventually add more options like I want to see.
  • You do need the internet to do business. So in case of a localized broadband outage you can use your mobile device as a hot spot.

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

We migrated from a less integrated situation of running ShopKeep for a POS system and the AIMsi as a billing solution. This created a lot of extra steps for a large percentage of tasks. AIMsi is just to hard to work with and it is very difficult to use it efficiently across multiple locations since tri-tech wants to license how many computers you can use it on and so on. ShopKeep works well but we wanted ti move on to something a tiny bit more sophisticated for tracking repairs and replacing some of the billing functions of AIMsi, and we wanted to have a web store finally. ShopKeep doesn't go past being an easy to train on POS system with inventory tracking.

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.

  • We did not have any type of web-store before starting up with Rain Point of Sale so adding that online presence has helped us bring first-time customers into the store
  • We have had one or two bad deals happen because of the site - so watch out for scammers using temporary office space with a fake business as the ship to address. Not Rain's fault, just part of doing business online.
