Aptean Intuitive ERP Review: "Intuitive ERP is a solid SMB Manufacturing performer"

We are using IntuitiveERP in all five of our businesses, and handling all of our needs from inventory management to manufacturing, quality, purchasing, sales and financials. We are using it with several other products to keep track of all of our key metrics and try and drive our business forward.
  • Easy to Use
  • Low Maintenance
  • Flexible and modifiable
  • Lack of consolidations between systems
  • No APIs yet
Intuitive ERP is particularly well suited to be used for small to mid-sized manufacturers. It has enough complexity to handle most any business process yet is simple enough to not be cumbersome. It is probably not appropriate for a very large organization or enterprise, or to non-manufacturing related businesses.

If you have a programmer and are willing to let them learn the system and want software to function the way you run your business this may work well. If you do not have a programmer on staff and are willing to change your business to match the software but think in the future you may wish to modify your ERP software this may work out well. If you want something you can modify quickly this is not a good choice. If you do not wish to modify the code nor your business practices an evaluation would be required. It does allow substantial modifications, but there are areas it may not fit with your business so well. It is possible that Intuitive may happen to make the options you require available in the future.
