Their software helps provide structure for the business and yet allows for configuration and customization to fit the companies needs.

Likes Least

Configuring all of the different ERP modules can be somewhat involved if you're a new customer. It isn't necessarily a negative but it can be overwhelming at first.

Recommendations

Know your business needs, have a demonstration done, and ask questions.

The lot tracking is spot on, for a food manufacturer this is critical to our business. The software also provides a great workflow management system that is hard to find in other solutions bundled with the ERP options in the similar market space.

Likes Least

Consistent product direction has been lacking at times over the years, however, they have made significant adjustments over the last 4 years and this seems to no longer be an issue.

Recommendations

This software is great at what it does...if you have needs that fall outside of the standard, make sure any customizations are clearly defined and scoped before you move forward. This holds true to any ERP software you evaluate.

A fully integrated and real time ERP application, with all the functionalities a medium size business would need with little to no customization. Exact is a very responsive company, listening to their customers/users’ needs and feed-back and constantly developing and improving their product. Additionally Exact has a multitude of partners covering most if not all of the extra needs/applications a business may have (EDI, WMS, Reporting etc.). Exact has a very good support department and VAR network. We have been using Exact Macola for over 10 years!

The multi location MRP and standard costing funtionalities are still limited but in development for release in the coming 12 to 18 months.

Recommendations

Have your current business processes fully mapped (including all departments) and see how this application will cover each one of the various processes in place and how Macola can improve efficiencies, as well as collaboration between your various departments.

Exact Macola document management system helps out with version of documents. It helps to see the old versions and we can get the older content back via version options. This feature is just like google documents and is very helpful.

Likes Least

Document sharing is tricky here and needs more work. When sharing documents with others, user interface is not very easy. Initially it took me some time to understand on how to share documents. So I feel this needs some more work.

Recommendations

Good for people who work on the documents a lot. It helps with tracking the version for documents created. Users can revert and review their notes for earlier days when they started working on a specific document using this functionality.

I like how fast this system works. Looking for existing documents and creating new ones is really faster via using this document management system.

Nothing as of now. I have not used all features so there could be some options to be improved but I do not have much awareness about these.

Recommendations

Nice and fast. The system helps to manage documents quickly and easily.

This is one of the ugliest programs that I have ever used. Please bring a graphic designer in!

Recommendations

Ask any questions that comes to mind! This program has way more features than you would think.

The product reporting seems outdated. I understand, though, there is a better version coming out soon.

Make sure you get all the training you need, as this software is very extensive.

The software still retains a number of old non-customizable reports, and the interface is somewhat awkward.

The product is simple to use, which is also what I like least because that leads to few layers of data availability.

Likes Least

Simplicity. Not a lot of depth to the product. More functionality would be nice.

Recommendations

Look at the feature list. Make sure there is some customization available.
