We use Lawson for our ERP, supporting HR, GL, PO, and Payroll. Primary users are Accounting and Human Resources.
  • Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability.
  • No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised.
  • Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization.
  • Features. Would love to see better delivery of new regulatory reporting, for example the 1095C for benefits.
  • I haven't seen many advancements in the core product in quite awhile. Would like to see a refreshed look.
  • Like all software vendors, there is a current push to go cloud-based, which I find nauseating. This is not unique to Lawson... but neither are they exempt from it.
For a mid-sized company, it is a decent choice. Other ERP vendors will give you a better employee self-service portal. I'm assuming Lawson's price point is lower than those, however.
