I wouldn't suggest this ERP for small organizations, especially if there is no IT staff. While they do offer support packages, they can be costly as certain packages limit the number of times you can call in. Hiring an outside consulting firm to support is another route, however that could become costly as well. Medium to large businesses with savvy tech staff would be a good fit for this ERP.

I can really encourage every start-up that is a little further to explore SIX ERP. With the pricing it might be also the best solution on the market right now for SMEs (we did extensive comparisons and SIX was by far superior to other choices, paid and open-source). But also considering the vast modules and the extensive features with warehousing, project management etc. it is great for large corporations as only those can really make use of the extensive features. I guess also bigger corporations will love how easy it is to integrate systems, which could save a lot of money. Especially in comparison to Microsoft, Oracle or SAP the integration costs what I have seen as a consultant are ridiculously high in comparison of the SIX costs. So highly reccomended for every business owner to at least have SIX on the short list and check it out. We love it!

Cons
Sage
  • Complications in configuration. Had to use a third party vendor to help us customize the system so we could better use it within the organization. This added additional expense
  • Some error messages are in French. If you aren't French, or can't speak French, this makes it pretty hard to troubleshoot
  • If you want to customize reports, you need to know Crystal Reporting (at least for the version I am using)

We don't just want to renew it, we are just in the process of evaluating a second license for the new platform MoreThanDigital Insights. So we will definitely stay with SIX ERP and we are looking forward to also seeing the evolution of the system plus grow ourselves with the system as it has unlimited users.

It was one of the best ERP interfaces we have seen so far. Fast, easy, love the shortcuts, and also web-first, with not much resource usage. So highly reccomended to make a demo there and just see it for yourself. We also love the custom dashboards, quick shortcuts in many areas and pages and that it was fast to onboard our employees and all of our volunteers quickly. (more work, less explaining)

The founder Dr. Andreas Maier was super helpful and tried to really help us as a start-up to get up and running fast as well as implementing our new platform with the ERP. Great work of him and his team! Especially the many updates every months are also a great plus; fascinating how much is being integrated - just like Marketing Automation

Sage has quite less setup cost and was easy to setup. Sage is capable of managing multi subsidiary transactions. It was easy for our team members to learn and start using. Team leads has some issues while approving invoices initially but it was fine later. Sage is a good option for mid scale manufacturing firms

We screened over 20 different solutions from local and international ERP providers. Especially the costs to scale, the easy integration and the vast functionalities were unbeatable at the price it offers. Another big plus-point was the nice interface and that it really works fast and frictionless. Some of the other systems were really slow and tedious to handle. So our team was quite happy with how easy SIX was to use.
