Apprise is a great ERP system with a very wide footprint tailored for companies that sell into "big box" retailers. For the right company, you can use Apprise to manage: product development, forecasting, sourcing, EDI, sales orders, warehouse management, retailer chargebacks, customer allowances, financials, business intelligence, etc. While there may be other single-business-process systems that can do some of these better, you will be hard-pressed to find a packaged ERP system, for this price, that does all of these as well across the board.

Pros

If you sell into Walmart or any other EDI-heavy retailers, the EDI Transaction Manager will be of great benefit to your organization. Apprise offers a completely hands-off approach to EDI that allows your business to focus on managing the orders, not the vast amount of technical requirements to get that order from your retailer's system. Chargeback and allowance management features make for easy management of post-sales deductions. Supplier Production Monitoring provides visibility into constantly changing production and delivery dates so that you know when the product will arrive at your distribution center.

Cons

As with any ERP system with this wide of a footprint, implementation will depend heavily on having the right people in your organization participate in the implementation process. Your technical and business-user staff will play a big part in a successful go live. If you try to implement Apprise without the right expertise, you are setting your organization up for failure.

Advice to Others

Enlist the help of a consultant with experience implementing windows-based ERP systems (if you can find an Apprise consultant, even better). This could shave weeks or months off of the implementation timeline. Apprise has some good project managers to assist with the implementation, but they are typically pulled in many directions as they support multiple concurrent implementations. You need someone dedicated on your side to keeping things moving along at a quick pace.

The software is easy to use but it does freeze and will shut down on you when a big order is being processed.

Pros

It is really easy to use and can organize the apps on your home page the way you want it.

Cons

It will freeze and you are forced to shut down and will have to start all over.

The advantages of apprise in my opinion are that it is easy to use. That is because the tabs are pretty dedicated to an individual function which makes it easy to learn. Also all tabs are very self explanatory. The disadvantages I would say is that apprise tends to freeze often and does not have fucntions to make processes faster.

Pros

Easy to learn
Self explanatory tabs
helpful

Cons

Freezes often
Does not have a variety of options to make processes easier

It's an empty box that needs to be customized for all your needs. The customization is a long process and required a lot of time effort before being put in place.
The system works, can bring you to the result you expecting and it's very easy to use.

Pros

Integrity, possibility to customize the system based on your needs.

Cons

Implementation process takes long time, I wish the system can come with more feature or personalized reports.

Before changing to Apprise Software we were working with 3 different systems, Apprise integrated them all so we are not ripping and reading. What a difference this has been. No longer skipping a beat in our day to day operations.

There is nothing not to like, they pretty much cover all our needs to our satifaction.

Recommendations

I would certainly put them in the mix if you are looking to get all your data into one system. They have a great support staff when needed.
