Munis

Munis is great for any sort of data keeping and accounting work. There are features of Munis that I am still not familiar with even after 6 years of use. Munis would not be very good for a point of sale sort of operation like a retail store because it just simply is not set up for that sort of operation.

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.

  • It has a great reporting function
  • It connects many different tables and data points together
  • It is great for international accounting
Thomas Straut-Collard | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Munis

  • Submitting a purchase order requires lots of tabbing through fields
  • The product has lots of features, but they require additional training to understand how to use
  • Generating reports can sometimes be difficult
Todd McGee | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

  • 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.

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

Return on Investment

Munis

  • Munis has prevented our office from needing multiple software programs to house all of our information.
  • All of our employees have access to the same information, on the same software.
  • Munis has made day-to-day operations smoother for our office because we are not constantly flipping between programs or software.
Kristen Reeves | 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.
