Overall Satisfaction with Brightpearl

It was a lot of work to get the system implemented, but the Brightpearl support team was very helpful. It's not an easy process, but it wasn't terrible either.
The support is generally pretty good, but sometimes it can take a while to get a resolution.
We use Brightpearl for bookkeeping, analysis, and monthly reporting for the entire business. We use reports to assess sales and margin data by product and product category. Also we use the system to compare to budgeted and prior year financial and other metrics. We typically export reports into Microsoft Excel and then manipulate and format the data further in the MS Office suite.
  • Simple sales reporting
  • Simple financial and accounting reporting
  • The ability to do forensic ad hoc analysis for specific business problems/questions.
  • Scenario analysis would be a helpful addition
  • It has been very positive with regard to giving us insights into accounting and sales reporting that we previously didn't have.
  • Also, the fact that it is web-based it very helpful as some of our employees are not always on site.
We liked Brightpearl because of its retail-centric orientation and ease of use.
Simple small businesses, particularly retail business, are well suited for this product.

If you need complex accounting software, Brightpearl probably isn't your best option.
