Exact Software
If you are a big company and have an active accountant then this system can be for you, it has many options but you need dedication. But the price starts from €39 and then you are not there...Most of the time you need other options to make it complete. Like ERP functions + €199~ want to book hours? +€129. And this is all per month... It goes up so fast that it's not interesting for small companies. When there are better options on the market that are even free...

It is a factory process ERP suitable for flow manufacturing, perhaps the best in its class for functionality and value. Great for medium sized manufacturers.. especially food manufacturers.

  • Stability, it reminds of a old COBOL system found in plants. It just runs and never stops.
  • Established, Infor Adage made an A grade platform.
  • Support, even though Infor Adage is not supporting it anymore, other companies are still developing add ons for it.

Cons
Exact Software
  • Support... It's bad, and when you want to stop or step back it's near impossible.
  • Price, they tend to increase it without warning, and with all the extras it goes up fast.
  • If you wanna spend all your time in accounting buy Exact... It can be complex and many handlings needs to be done.

  • Infor has moved onto their new manufacturing package, so they have slowed in their development of Adage, and the user interface is a bit dated, but functional. It could use a technical refresh on the operator screens and access. It is not web based.
  • Integration with EDI is weak. There is poor support for ASNs (Advanced Ship Noticies) and freight management has to be brought in from the outside.
  • Security takes a while to update and administer.

I would not select Exact Online, but I can direct you to better options. Due to the high price, getting behind the competition and support I would suggest options like Zoho Books for you bookings, or CyberStockroom as ERP. And here in the Netherlands e-boekhouden.nl is a real nice, cheap, and fast working booking platform for the smaller companies.

I was not here for when Adage was introduced but I can say having had experience with Oracle I can say that it can hold its own. When it gets down to, Adage is easier and cheaper to maintain then other ERP's. It can do the same tasks other ERP's can do and does them well.

Return on Investment
Exact Software
  • Negative: High costs and implement time turned 1 client in to the negative, and after 2 years of use wants to stop.
  • Positive: Once an ERP connection is running you can automate a lot in the process.

Infor
  • It's scaled well with our company, and we haven't seen the need to switch packages, it works well for us.
  • Our IT staff doesn't spend time fighting application or data failures, it's a clean running package (we have an IT staff of 3).
  • We can get our work done, and it handles business loads well.
