Value for Money

The company I am working for has been using AdvancePro since 2003, when they went from managed warehouse services, to in-house managed processing, there were some bumps in the beginning, but they managed to master the application and tailor it to be effective with their business model, nowadays running very robust with the integration to other applications. I see us using AdvancePro for many years to come.

Pros

Very intuitive, user-friendly, Windows interface. easy to integrate with user-popular, third party applications, superb customer support with ultra-fast response time.

Cons

Since my input to this aspect is merely from the technical point of view, I could not say AdvancePro has any cons, at least not at this time.

We implemented AP 1 year ago for a distribution and manufacturing company. As of today, some features of the software still do not function.

Pros

1. Cheap
2. Basics works well- such as order placing, sync with rep portal, inventory count.

Cons

1. Customer service only ET from 9 to 5 - good luck after hours 'cause no one replies.
2. Missing tutorials and type of reports list or guide.

Advice to Others

If you just need a simple not so big in feature inventory software and don't mind waiting on customer service- then this is for you.

- Everything is a product.

- Easy to manage customer pricing, profitability and COGS by using the markup or setting up a price.
- Automatically calculates the available stock for kits based on the availability of the components in the kit.
- QuickBooks reporting with full item details.
- Simplified order picking, shipping, and purchasing
- Timely access to order and payment history directory on customer page.

Likes Least

Some details need polish. For example, if you are not familiar with this product, you will need to be patient.

Recommendations

Import all data to try the product and not just see the product.

Pros

cloud based, consistency of function, employees like it. This software also works well with our production Staff which are based internationally.

other than custom xls reports, modifications if needed in main systems . I wish there were more controls to allow a specific vendor manager to see only that Vendor

Greater ability to manage inventory, ability to sync with QuickBooks

Pros

It's relatively easy to use. Overall the design is great, the layout is nice, and it syncs with QuickBooks easily.

It is our main company software which we use for our orders.

Pros

The customer service is the best aspect of Advance Pro. If need be, they will respond back to our problems by days end.

Cons

Invoicing and trying to change orders once processed is over complicated and troublesome. The customer often changes their sometimes massive orders, and our staff with more life experience has trouble coping with the often overcumbering steps required to make those changes.

Direct feeds from our ecommerce site. B2B portal for our customers.

Pros

It is good for tracking inventory which is what it is designed for. The training classes are very helpful and easy to understand.

Cons

Some of the naming on fields seems intuitive, but it actually isn't what it seems. For example the field named UPC isn't really for a UPC and in order to enter you can't just type it in the product, you have to upload using Excel. Kits are difficult to edit as well.

Able manage inventory accurately with the click of a few buttons.

Pros

Their software is designed with such clarity for ease of learning and use with full on online support and tutorials that make learning and using their software very simple. The interface has everything I need for ease of access to attain all operational information needed at the click of a button. AdvancePro software empowers me enabling me to make changes, edit data and upload information without the need of their support team unless I require them their support team is fast and professional in their response to any of my inquiries and provide full detailed answers as to not leave me guessing. I like the fact that all costs associated with their software is clearly stated upfront and you are charged only for what your company requires in an Inventory Management Software System (ERP). Their training from the get go was personal and detailed I was educated immediately and found everything easy to understand.

It definitely made my work easier, it linked all the departments of the company together, easier forecasting and figuring the amount of goods we need in inventory, QuickBooks service, and many more amazing features

Pros

1- User-friendly, and very easy to navigate through
2- Customer support team are very quick and responsive
3- AdvancePro University, weekly online sessions to learn how to use the software

Cons

1- Sometimes it freezes and it doesn't respond (once in a blue moon though),
2- Sometimes it gets glitches, and some features don't function. for example: sometimes I associate a product to a vendor. and when I try to make a vendor order for that product, it doesn't show that product is associated to that specific vendor (only after 24 hours)
