TradeGecko

Using TradeGecko requires to the company to make compromises. Which compromises depends on the business, what they are using for other 3rd party applications and what they sell.You need to be very good with excel since you are able to upload and modify most files, which gives you major control over your data. They however need to modify the way in which new inventory items get loaded, as it is quite awkward if you use variants.'Reports' as has been described prior has improved dramatically and most if not all can be downloaded in CSV/Excel format. This allows you to build your own reports with the data from the system.If your business is very complex in nature, TradeGecko probably isn't the system for you. If you are doing thousands of transactions a day, again this is not the system. However, if you are a small to smaller mid-sized business, the system, its cost and the 3rd party applications make it worth a first second and third look.

Valogix Inventory Planner

Valogix is a good tool for a mid to large sized business who has a lot of SKUs and much data that needs to be analyzed to determine supply. It is best used by savvy people, as there is quite a learning curve to it. It integrates well with NetSuite, though I cannot speak to how well it may integrate with other ERP systems.

Alternatives Considered

TradeGecko

I looked at several other products and either they were cost prohibitive or just too complex. If I wanted complexity I would go with a full suite approach (Navision, Intacct, Netsuite, Sage, etc.) for a major price point entrance into the accounting system world.While TG has been at times very aggravating overall I'm more that satisfied given the clients operating parameters. No software solution is perfect - no matter what the software publisher says!

Valogix Inventory Planner

Compared to NetSuite's default demand planning module, Valogix shines. NetSuite's product is very weak, very manually-driven, and does not provide the precise level of control that Valogix does. We used NetSuite's module for a while before realizing it wouldn't work for us whatsoever. It might work for you if you have a simple product setup, few SKUs and only one location. But in that case, you probably don't need demand planning software anyway.

Return on Investment

TradeGecko

  • I have spent an inordinate amount of time getting them to see what realistic business rules are (not just for my client, but for business in general).
  • I believe their engineers, analysts and many of their customer service people need more real-life business experience since they truly don't understand concepts as simple as "sales pipeline" or as mentioned before, you don't recalculate sales tax when you are not the books of record.

Valogix Inventory Planner

  • It has begun to reduce time for us taken up by running manual spreadsheet calculations.
  • The training was time-consuming and difficult to onboard new users when we had turnover.
