Good for it’s intention

Pros

Great with BOM, job costing, and quality. The package looked nice and was pretty solid. I liked how custom it was.

Cons

I was hoping it would be more than just erp. It’s difficult to pay for two software packages and this still requires a separate accounting package.

This ERP is more for production and logistics

Pros

Easy to use. it runs well on Linux servers, regulate the integration with other softwares, the best is the production and logistics module are well designed, nothing exceptional but they fulfill their function and are easy to manage, in terms of the financial area it is very, very basic, this application helps you to provide a high level of service inside, not outside (client) ...

Cons

It takes a while to adapt to navigation (WorkFlow) and how to use the system's tools. It is very intuitive you need to open a large number of windows (many clicks) to get information. has problems with performance when handling volumes of data, documentation / help is not always clear. the graphical interface is very simplistic (cold)

Best Supply Chain Quality for Price

Great application, great value for money.

Pros

I believe the quality of them ERP system considering it’s competitors’ prices are great and can leave SMEs with a fullfiled inventory management system.

Cons

Maybe there are a few limitations by the application to growing inventory or industries dealing with fast moving export warehouses.

ERP Mark 7 was a great investment for our company. It was implemented quickly with minimal training time. The support team provided to us was very helpful and readily available. The Mark 7 dashboard provides a user friendly layout that is easy to use from the start.

Awesome features and ease of use

Pros

The ability of creating your own interfaces, assigning of group of people to your company is really best and of great ability.

Cons

It is really time consuming in creating your interface for your company most especially to first time users. I got stressed up for the first time of use even though it's a software with marvelous features.

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.

Abas made our business run better and enthusiastically gave me the tools to make abas even better for our unique business.

I have enthusiastically recommended abas to several other businesses. The abas-USA team is great to work with. Even at the highest level (owners and executives) they take a personal interest in their clients and have a deep understanding of their product. It would be expected that someone in my position would interact with several consultants and technicians at abas-USA but over the course of the last five years I have also come to personally know the over/President of abas-USA as well as the VP of Operatoins, the VP of Information Systems, and pretty much the entire US-based management team. I have also had the opportunity to meet several of the German executives, company officers, and programmers to discuss the system. You can't fake the enthusiasm these guys have for their customers and for their product.

Pros

It's a complete solution - you won't be asked to pick and choose between dozens (or hundreds) of modules that can be included or not during implementation. This program was also not cobbled together from disparate programs and modules purchased by some corporate entity and bundled for sale.
Abas technical support is excellent (more on that later).
Abas user support and training is also excellent - they run what they call the "abas academy" out of their Virginia offices. They have frequent multi-day training courses focused on different aspects of the software. The best are the technical training courses where they teach 'higher-level' users (like the system admins from their clients) how to program customizations for themselves. Some of our most useful processes were programmed by me in-house.
Abas is always getting better and changing with advances in technology.
The program is remarkably stable. It runs (preferably) on a linux server and uses a custom designed database (that is a big $ savings over an erp running on a windows server using an SQL database). In four years, the only time our ERP system has been down has been during power failures or when I did something to break it. When I did disrupt the system, during non-business hours, the support team had us up and running again withing an hour.
In general, support tickets are handled very promptly. Urgent or critical tickets are addressed immediately.
There is a group on LinkedIn where users communicate and help each other out. Many of the members are "IT Manager" types who use/administer/customize abas where they work.

Cons

On the technical side, getting into programming the proprietary database means a bit of a learning curve for anyone who is used to using SQL.
Mobile applications aren't fully implemented but more are constantly being developed. The mobile app server addition is a significant investment.
The system had no built-in capacity to close idle sessions (to free up licenses for the pool) so I had to program a work-around.
I have had a couple instances where a fairly green support tech got assigned to a ticket and wasn't much help.

Best flexibility available in ERP systems

It is great to have an ERP solution that has so much capability to provide for unique business solutions. The problem with the ease of use, is tracking these changes and creating more maintenance and upgrade work in the future. Make sure to check functionality in the core product before you add custom solutions, often you can meet your requirements with just a little bit of training and small changes to your process.

Pros

* Highly customizable interface that allows for adding additional functionality and improving users experience
* Easy to learn programming language
* Modern web services available for web based applications
* Functionality and flexibility of the big ERP providers, without the high cost

Cons

* Tracking and updating customized solutions is not very smooth
* Small user base in the US makes collaborating with other companies hard (this is improving)

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.

For what it offers, abas' ERP pros outweight any cons

Pros

The ability to manipulate data to create customize reports I find is extremely valuable. As a manufacturing company, I find It's ability to store all information in one erp system saves every department time from maintaining information in different databases and gives us quick access to any information we're looking for.

Cons

The learning curve is longer compared to the standard , more conventional software options and requires the user to be more skilled.

ABAS is an ERP system made complete by its functioning software and knowledgeable personnel.

Pros

ABAS is completely customizable and you can get out of it whatever you put into it. Implementation is never an easy task but ABAS has it down to a science. We went live in January 2016 and have not looked back since. The team of support was great. ABAS is always improving and moving forward which makes it an exciting company to be partnered with.

Cons

The support system is on a portal that I find confusing. I would rather pick up the phone and have a conversation with someone and that is what I will often do.

Very userfriendly software and easy to navigate

Pros

Unlike some larger ERP companies that when need assistance you get a different person every time you call - with Abas you have a select group of people assigned to your company that you can build relationships with. They become very familiar with your company and how it works. This in turn is helpful as you grow and want to make changes within the system since they are already knowledgeable about your business.

Cons

It's both good and bad...the system can do so many different things (which is great!) but it can be overwhelming at first. When you see demos of things you like and want to have right away when you start up you find that you need to take a step back and get the basics running first.

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.

Extremely disappointed

Cons

- The basic system is delivered without any feature.
- It is necessary to ask for extremely expensive specific developments to have interesting features.
- Little intuitive because it is necessary to open a large number of windows to obtain an information.
- It is impossible to manage ourself the customizable imports. - If you do not take the option of the businesses apps, the software is not intuitive and the exploitation of the statistical data is difficult.
- This ERP is more for production and logistics ... while we also make many of commercial.

Relatively disappointed. We thought that the change of ERP would simplify us the life but it is very far from being the case. It has been more than 8 months since we migrated on this software and there are still numerous problems. The basic software is an empty shell. Very honestly, I used other ERP which were more complete and more successful as for example SAGE 100, SAP, CEGID ...
