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.

My main suggestion - as with any software implementation - is that the business itself MUST have business processes CLEARLY defined to use this software effectively. It needs to be installed trying to hit the main functionality of the process and not focus on exceptions to the rule. Remember that the exceptions will always happen and just make sure you have a manual way around it.

Cons

Macola

  • Consistent consultants has been an issue - trying to get someone that can help alleviate a problem when creating a new workflow was most challenging.
  • The "smart client" and "web client" versions have items that cannot be done in both (not due to security setup) and causes users to work in both clients to perform their work.

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

I have used Fund EZ and QuickBooks. Unit4 is for larger organizations and was needed for our scaling.

Return on Investment

Macola

  • Lower software costs.
  • Less maintenance.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unit4 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), formerly Unit4 Business World

  • Our business processes were in flux when the initial build of our system was taking place - this made lives very difficult. Make sure processes are set!
  • Time - beyond what could have been imagined - this is a huge project, that needs proper resources assigned to it within a company when planning to install.
