LS Nav

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

QAD

If you're setting up operations where you have to manage manufacturing builds from raw components to finished goods, I would recommend QAD. It's nice to have subassemblies part numbers for your builds and enter in the number of accepted quantities and rejects. QAD is very helpful if you have a lot of parts floating around. I would not buy QAD if you only have to manage less than ~20 parts... just use Excel.

Pros

LS Nav

  • Offline/semi-offline mode works well in areas where connectivity is an issue.
  • Pricing, offers and promotions can be configured exceptionally well in LS Retail.
  • POS interface design is simple, robust and easily configurable.
  • Security wise there is enough detail available to trace all kinds of POS transactions.

QAD

  • The QAD Enterprise application is great, we only started using this application a few years ago. The Master Scheduling Workbench has been a great improvement to our daily operations.
  • The Web-based QAD Supplier Portal has also been implemented recently in our company and has been a huge help to our purchasing and materials department.
  • The QAD support that we receive has helped our company grow and is a major asset in upcoming projects.
Amanda Bell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

LS Nav

  • 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.
Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

  • Needs more flexibility to add/configure new indexes (if using the Progress Database) as the current indexes on key tables like transaction history are not helpful
  • Need a better support system for the TMS/Precision interface
  • Need better KnowledgeBase articles to understand the innerds of Pricing functionality

The cost / benefit of changing to a different ERP will create a high cost and low benefit that's why I believe that we'll continue renewing QAD for a long time.

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

QAD

QAD stacks up well against other similar software that I have used. All in all the ability to add or subtract modules from QAD is a great advantage in having a flexible system that you can start with and adapt as your needs changes. This allows for small companies to use QAD and not just limit it to bigger companies.

Return on Investment

LS Nav

  • Timely sales visibility
  • Optimum Inventory levels
  • Enough data to visualise trends and patterns
Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

QAD

  • QAD has made it easier for the operations engineering team to narrow down processes where reject rate relates to the highest cost so that they can solve those issues first.
  • QAD has made it easy for the production team to print work orders and track daily builds. This saves a lot of time from the old method of tracking in Word docs or Excel.
  • Sometimes QAD needs a lot of maintenance on the back end so we had to hire a full time employee to manage the data systems.
