Effective & easily customizable ERP software

Pros

- Using their inventory mobile app, our inventory accuracy has improved vastly - With a coding class from abas, small customizations can be done internally

Cons

- We have large & complicated bills of materials that were difficult to manage. We did a bit of work to get them flowing through abas effectively.

Customizable ERP helps Custom Manufacturer Streamline Processes

Pros

ABAS has the ability to connect to design software such as Solid Works. This connection allows our engineers the ability to create parts, work orders and bills of materials with a click of a button. This is a huge improvement over the manual systems we use to use. ABAS is also very customizable. This allows us to fit the ERP system around the way we like to operate instead of settling for methods that may not be exactly what we wanted.

Cons

As with any ERP system, there is a ton of content, screens, reports and applications. For a new user, this can be overwhelming and typically takes some time to understand the navigation and how to utilize the system. ABAS has done a good job making navigation similar between all screens but this also can cause confusion as to what screen the user is working in. With practice and training this becomes less of an issue but is a real challenge for new users. The addition of a central reporting system with pre-made reports that can be modified as needed, would also be a welcomed addition. Currently reports are embedded within info-systems and not always obvious to the user.

Not happy with company, product average

We were misled during the sales process in that we were told the system could function in ways that it cannot. The implementation process was a mess as it took 16 months then on the day of launch we were provided a product that did not work. Initially Abas would not listen to us when we told them that it was not functioning. It took months for them to send a representative out to take a look and the conclusion was that we had to start over. Abas created a new system for us and we had to re-create six months of data re-entering all sales and A/R, but it was impossible to do all data, so the purchasing side was entered as opening numbers. We lost some detail from the sales side as well. We have historical data that can never be retrieved.

Pros

Integrated with the financials. Very easy to move data to excel. Many screens within Abas function like excel which is handy. Can customize many reports.

Cons

Requires too many customizations to meet needs, which gets very expensive. Some basic financial and CRM functions do not exist. An example would be it will not process a reimbursement. When you need customer service you put in a ticket and often get a programmer who has not worked on your system or does not recall the details of your system/company and so you pay for them to research your issue. There are bugs with the system functioning on mac even though they claim compatibility. Not all of our users are on mac. I have had some functions mysteriously malfunction and we have to pay Abas to get it fixed.

Pankl Racing Systems, based in Austria, specializes in developing and manufacturing engine and drive-train components for racing cars, high performance vehicles and the aerospace industry. Pankl is a global organization with worldwide subsidiaries in Austria, UK, USA, Slovakia and Japan. In Austria we've been using abas ERP since 1995, in the USA since 2002, in the UK since 2004 and in Slovakia since 2008. At the moment we are running abas ERP version 2009r4n11 at all the Pankl subsidiaries. We decided to use abas ERP because it provides all the necessary functions for a mid-market manufacturer like Pankl and from our point of view it has a really good cost/performance ratio. Another benefit is the flexibility of abas ERP. If your company needs customizations, like additional fields in screens to enter data or personalized reports, abas can make that happen. I was not personally involved in the abas ERP implementation process in Austria and the UK, but I never heard anything negative about these projects. The implementation process in the UK and in Slovakia took 3 to 6 months at each subsidiary. It took us a little bit longer in Slovakia compared to the UK, because we are running abas ERP in Slovakia in 4 different languages: Slovak, Czech, English and German. Both software vendors, in the UK and in Slovakia, were really helpful during the whole roll out process. We received all the help we needed during the implementation process and I really appreciate the fast response time of abas USA when there are problems or just user requests. In a demo system, which is actually a copy of the live database, each department receives special training in abas ERP. This approach has 2 major benefits: 1. The user has the chance to increase his knowledge of abas using familiar examples from the live system 2. The user is already in contact with the abas ERP system, but in a "save" demo environment, where he cannot damage anything in the live database. Based on our experience such lessons are more efficient for a new user than just classroom lectures. Our users usually learn to use abas ERP really quickly after these training sessions. As with each software solution, abas ERP has "special" features and functions, but if you are aware of them you gain a big advantage in handling the abas ERP software. The biggest benefit is to have all the relevant data from purchasing and sales, production, materials management, production planning and control (PPC) and financial accounting combined in one system.

ABAS-Part of the Family

Pros

This ERP software is very flexible and customization to fit our needs. It also contains many "cutting edge" features like integration with Solid Works engineering design software, E-Business, Document Management and Business Apps that many of the others did not have or were "bolt" on third party add-ons. Working with ABAS through the install and continued support I have to say the feeling that we are part of the "family" is what I like best about this vendor. They take the time to listen to what you are trying to accomplish and work with you to solve your issues all while maintaining a positive attitude.

Cons

The source coding is in German. While this doesn't affect the average user since all screens are translated to the native language it makes it a little more difficult for advanced users who wish to do their own programming or screen adjustments.
