Overall Satisfaction with EnterpriseIQ
We use EnterpriseIQ for manufacturing/planning/shipping, inventory control, purchasing and receiving, sales and distribution, and finance and accounting; including GL, AR, AP, budgeting, project tracking/management, and fixed assets. It is the ERP for our seven plants and the corporate headquarters. We use the add-in Spreadsheet Server for our periodic internal and external reporting.
- PO issuance and monitoring, approval management.
- Planning and managing the manufacturing process.
- Spreadsheet Server is user-friendly and well-featured.
- Accounting reports: accrued receipts reporting makes it difficult to reconcile.
- Fixed assets: depreciation posts to the general ledger at the asset level, generating inordinately large numbers of relatively meaningless transactions.
- Process cost: PIT display lacks many useful fields, including vendor name and number.
- Financial reports carry beyond two decimal places.
- Report structures are not sensibly arranged, and many reports imbed data within text fields, making manipulation and reporting more time-consuming.
In the manufacturing and inventory control and tracking areas, we have realized many of the benefits of an ERP. In the accounting area, where the bulk of my involvement is, we have found numerous challenges. Edits for things like out-of-period post dates are non-existent. As previously mentioned, many reports are not formatted ideally, and in many instances download incorrectly.
