Fresa Gold

As we are using Fresa gold for more than 5 years, the support team is very good with proactive responses. As Fresa Team is also from freight forwarding industry, most of the solutions are already available in the software. Fresa blog has answers for most of the questions. All the doubts are cleared then and there because they are arranging daily training sessions (5pm IST).

Macola

Well suited for larger companies, and this is only becoming more the case with the new ownership. Smaller companies could at one time buy only the modules they required. This is now not possible, so you end up with a number of modules you do not need. It is best suited for a company needing a full MRP and is going to be overkill for a service based company that does not require inventory management.

Alternatives Considered

Fresa Gold

As we are in freight forward and shipping solutions, we want to maintain everything in one platform from quote to invoice collection. Fresa Gold is specifically made for freight forwarders in mind. To avoid duplicate data entry, errors on invoices, we want to use one system for all the departments, which is available only in Fresa gold based on my experience.

Macola

We did not try any other products. We migrated to Macola from an older product.
