Jenzabar, Inc.
JICS is well suited for schools that have long-used Jenzabar products or are looking for a stripped down, direct data management system. If someone is seeking innovation or the latest in features and technology, I do not believe they would be as pleased with JICS. It's a bare bones system alternative.

The software is really good for managing inputs and inventory as well as maintaining traceability. The "track picking moves" functionality lets you look into a specific lot or serial numbers and view all the product moves that occurred with that lot. However, some navigation is not intuitive. For example, if I click on an item in the BoM of an assembly, then click the back button to go back to the assembly, the site goes all the way back to the home screen. Some of these quirks mean that there is a learning curve for the software, but overall the tracking is very good.

Pros
Jenzabar, Inc.
  • Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS) is good at interacting with the Jenzabar database.

  • Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS) will display grades as soon as they are entered into the Jenzabar database.

Odoo
  • Ignore requests for support
  • continue to collect money from users through micro-charges; apps, supports, etc.
  • Offer no support when they do finally respond, saying that it's the app developer's duty.
  • Creates a system that forces people that are good with software systems to pay for support

Cons
Jenzabar, Inc.
  • Jenzabar is unwilling to work with other companies to integrate information across multiple platforms.
  • The quality of JICS is contingent upon appropriate use and entry by those on campus. While not a limitation to JICS itself, there seems to be more problems with JICS in this regard than I have noticed on other campuses with other platforms.
  • JICS is typically behind on the times. Features it adds today were commonplace for others much earlier.

Odoo
  • Community version is sometimes hard to maintain, needs some on-premise knowledge (IT) or having business with an Odoo partner that is sometimes expensive and unreliable.
  • Enterprise version is as expensive as other ERP in the market.
  • Reporting is horrible, not a lot of possibility to integrate seamlessly with a third party BI platform.

Usability
Jenzabar, Inc.
Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS) is very usable and easy to maintain. With us having students log in with their AD credentials, they don't have to remember an extra username and password. Also, I have been able to update and customize some of the coding, which has allowed us to make sure the site works just the way we want it to.

I would give it an average rating despite being easy to use, but the user interface is very poor and not intuitive at all which makes the whole experience not that good. Also, the system is not mobile friendly at all which is annoying if you want to check something on the go.

Support Rating
Jenzabar, Inc.
Support is generally very helpful. There are some support staff that really try to go the extra mile and help with solving the problem you have, not just answering your initial question. If you don't understand a feature that is offered in the Jenzabar Internet Campus Solution (JICS) environment, they also have a portal with on-demand webinars/courses that you can watch to get a better idea of offerings at your own base.

Easy - there is NO SUPPORT (like in ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!!). Even for legally mandatory requirements where the system MUST work, they will gladly take a month to get back to you with a NON-answer. We couldn't even get our bank statements correctly into Odoo for 2 months - leading to no reconciliation and the company accounts were a mess (still are!!) as a result - Completely irresponsible. Have not EVEN had an apology from Odoo - they couldn't care less !!

Alternatives Considered
Jenzabar, Inc.
We selected JICS many years ago as it was a cost-effective option that was streamlined and straight-forward. Today, no one is ever thrilled with their SIS, and I can anticipate major difficulties if we attempted to move from JICS. However, from a features and revolutionary standpoint, I do feel we will always be a step behind if we continue with Jenzabar.

I selected Odoo because it is all in the cloud online and it is very easy to conect from everywhere, but then it did nos suit what we wanted in other fields and the service was poor,so we deceided to cancel the contract, but never get our money back since november 2020.

Return on Investment
Jenzabar, Inc.
  • Jenzabar has allowed us to house all data in one system, which was badly needed.
  • Jenzabar allows us to speak one language across campus, although many offices still work outside of Jenzabar due to limitations within JICS.
  • Jenzabar has not been effective in being a leader in new features or developments. I always feel like we are a step behind.

  • The integration of the support department in the sales processes was easily carried out by implementing Odoo.
  • Improved functionality and UI of the sales and logistics related processes in the company.
