S2K Enterprise

This ERP is suited for products that do not require customizations or personalization. Ideally, if you are selling a product as is, then S2K will fit your needs. Make sure to have all of the requirements for each piece laid out. For instance, with products - know all of your attributes and functionality for product pages ahead of time. Include this in the presentation for ERP selection. Ask what functionality is out of the box, and what is a customization. Ask for quotes ahead of time. This may increase the overall cost of the ERP as well as the time it takes to launch. Example: Product reviews, cross sells, remarketing, abandoned cart integration, etc

Viewpoint Spectrum

Viewpoint Spectrum is well suited for accounting, job costing, project management, service department. It is less appropriate for estimating, payroll on-boarding, time collection in the field for construction jobs and document imaging for the entire company. The scenarios where Viewpoint Spectrum is not appropriate for what we are trying to accomplish, we outsource and import into our Viewpoint Spectrum software

Pros

S2K Enterprise

  • Customization for various businesses.
  • One-stop shop for managing a website, real time inventory, order processing, accounting, and shipping.
  • The platform is easy to use. Whether it is used by a customer service member, designer, or developer.
Melissa Crum | TrustRadius Reviewer

Viewpoint Spectrum

  • Great software for analyzing data and trends while still being pretty easy to use.
  • The ability to create a custom info link reports enable you to create virtually any report using the data you have in Spectrum that will auto-refresh with just one click of a button.
  • They have a fantastic support network and I the few times I have had to contact support, I was directed to someone very knowledgeable that was able to find a solution.

Cons

S2K Enterprise

  • There will most likely be customizations made for a particular niche site to integrate with their system.
  • Product reviews, up sells, and cross sells are not built into the website functionality. Customization to the offerings would be needed.
  • Very little documentation or open source resources on instructions or development in regards to the website design and integration with the ERP.
Melissa Crum | TrustRadius Reviewer

Viewpoint Spectrum

  • It's sometimes hard to control the document imaging window. It doesn't stop when you release the cursor. Have to go to top of screen and click in one of the bars to lock it in place.
  • In AP invoice entry, you have to slow down when entering job and phase number. Doesn't keep up with the speed of the person entering.

Support has not been great since merging with Viewpoint. I've sent several letters up the chain about this. It has made me want to leave the software altogether on more than one occasion. I spend a lot of time on hold, and on numerous occasions now we've sat around for days waiting for a response only to be told the person on the phone never actually made a ticket for that, or that the online system didn't alert them of our case. We used to be able to call and get someone immediately and have the problem solved by a knowledgeable person. Now it's hit or miss and you could be on hold forever. The online training academy is nice but it's still not in-depth enough for me to not have to sit and babysit someone through a training period.

If this is someone's first ERP implementation, I strongly suggest you ask for services to help implement. Ask for training on every aspect of the implementation. Make sure this is put into the overall ERP quote

Alternatives Considered

S2K Enterprise

S2K offered a system that could be used by various departments. There were modules for accounting, customer service, order entry, and web development. The ability to customize the website integration was a plus. S2K allows the option to have products in different warehouse locations. This allowed us to better manage inventory and see in real time what the stock status was

I have previously used Sage Masterbuilder, another construction industry software. This has been a number of years ago. The company I am working for already had Spectrum and have been using it for as long as it has been around when it was known as Forefront. Based on conversations I've had with the personnel that were here at the time of purchase, Spectrum clicked off all the boxes they were looking for.

Return on Investment

S2K Enterprise

  • Reduced shipping time - shipments are now heading to customers 2 days sooner than before.
  • Ability to search by attributes.
  • In stock status - real time inventory tracking tells customers if a product is available without the wait.
  • Order tracking - the ability to track every shipment associated with their order.

Viewpoint Spectrum

  • [In my opinion,] it takes at LEAST twice as long to do our jobs now.
  • [I feel like] we are paranoid about something not being printed correctly because of [what I believe are] buggy text fields.
  • [In my experience,] we still have to refer to a physical file cabinet with paper, even though a main point of switching was to go paperless.
  • [In our experience,] screens can now be "locked", so we can't see something if our coworker is also looking at it.
  • [I believe that] the financial hit our company took from this switch was astronomical. [In my opinion:] Beware!
