    Best Open Source ERP

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality

    N/A
    Pros

    Opensource: today is a must for an ERP
    Web-based: the only way to be used by everyone, everywhere
    Solid: even if it is a rather new software, it has already reached a good level of stability
    Big community: look on github

    Cons

    Too fast updating: Unfortunately, an ERP is a complex system and its most important capacity is to be able to adapt to different scenarios (each company has its own characteristics). AGILE and open source development pay the price of continuous updates that must be managed carefully, especially if you made low-level customizations.

    i got to implement and help others.

    Pros

    can be used out of the box!
    have all the things that you can expect for an ERP
    - CRM
    - HR
    - Item/Inventory
    - manufacturing
    you can even customize flow without touching the code
    you can build your own application, and integrate easily to your ERP
    strong, strong community

    Cons

    tricky for big company due to the nature of those company
    - taxation is different for IPO-ed company
    - consolidation for multiple company (this can be done, just a bit tricky)
    documentations and how to used documentation can be improved.
     more use case implementation. e.g
    - demo implementation for retail company
    - for manufacturing company
    with their specific flow

    Pros

    - Extremely flexible engine. You can define any process in the world without knowing any programming. My team which has implemented this does not know programming at all. We were able to manage entire implementation only through customisations.
    - Doctype concept they have used is extremely powerful and flexible.
    - Quite a detailed documentation with ample videos and webinars (also available on youtube).
    - Extremely strong accounting background.
    - Same can be used for as many user roles you want. Can be used by start-ups as well large organisations.

    Cons

    - Bank integration missing
    - Scope for improvement on CRM like Zoho. Though existing CRM data management is very strong.

    Very active community, any feature you need can be requested on github issues and as per the importance and other priorities your issue/feature request will make it to core product eventually. Whole community, core team, service providers and ERPNext Open Source Software Foundation, India are aligned to resolve issues / requests posted on github.

    Pros

    Free and Open Source
    Foundation and Community backed ERP
    Easy Web UI
    Actively developed.
    Quick release cycles (follows semantic versioning)
    Extendable
    Allows connection with micro-services, acts as OAuth 2.0 Authorization server and resource server. Making it easy to connect devices, apps and gadgets to your Frappe / ERPNext server

    Cons

    No proprietary dependencies can be put into core product. Not suitable for anti-free software companies.

    Rolling release, No LTS. Not suitable for organisations that cannot adapt to regularly updated ERP system.
    e.g Some organizations still need FoxPro based systems, not suitable for such organizations.

    Its give me a freedom to take this wonderful product to any segment of client right from early-stage startup to Growing SME.

    Pros

    The Ease of use, compared to typical ERP's available in the market, ERPNext is quite a user friendly with less complex forms which are almost similar looking in all modules

    Cons

    some Features like Data import tool lacks clarity so far,, being open source ERP certainly it has a way to go in terms of documentation and ecosystem of service providers in market in terms of options available.

    I am using this software after reviewing Dynamics Nav, Oracle etc. Even though we can spend 250K AED for this project non of them could helped me to do field sales from a mobile or tablet. I am using it for managing 10 van sales in UAE. I am tracking over 10 warehouses with serial number tracking.

    Pros

    Open-source, Custom Script, inventory, serial number tracking, email alert, Custom fields, reporting, sales, purchase, web view, mobile application, history of every transactions, easy to setup, growing community

    Cons

    Need more community members to provide sample scripts like stackoverflow. Now on the community very few people are posting how they solved their issue.

    Better purchase, inventory and production management. Better interoperability between different departments- Sales, Accounts and Production. More importantly better adherence standard BOMs.

    Pros

    - Based on the Frappe framework, it makes it easily customizable
    - Neat and responsive UI
    - Great for manufacturing with Multilevel BOMs, managing multiple production departments
    - No vendor lock in. The software 100% open-source. It provides great security to small scale businesses.
    - Community driven and transparent approach to development

    Cons

    ERPNext user manuals should cover more number of use-cases. They typically cover the standard use-case.
    Compared to products like Tally or SAP awareness of ERPNext in India is still low, end-user confidence and acceptance has to be essentially be established with trials.

    Basic CRM was ok, all the basics were there including some basic inventory management and shipping tools.

    Cons

    The platform out of the box is very inflexible and at the time of testing many touted features simply were not present or did not behave as advertised.

    Great ERP software for small and medium businesses which cater for quite a number of business processes. Support should be more readily available rather than 'pushing' customers towards blogs for help in sorting out issues and/or understanding them.

    Pros

    Ease of setup and intuitive navigation through the system. Most standard business processes are already catered for. Changes in look and feel, including overall business template setup relatively easy to set up. Available help through manual and videos are very helpful.

    Cons

    Hard to trace back minor glitches/bugs. Support not really catering for these small issues, which sometimes take time to understand the cause. Support often not very friendly in explaining the issue/bug but still rectify them.

    We are a small software and service company and only wanted software to support the main business flow: quotation, order, project, invoice and found ERPNext could easily be customised to meet our needs almost exactly with judicious use of workflow customisation and form customisation. Also added a few custom fields and scheduled reports. We managed to do this without prior knowledge of HTML, Jinja or SQL - just using the resources of Dr. Google and the ERPNext documentation and some support calls. It's cheap enough to just use it for this purpose and ignore the rest, but I will implement the HR part and Time Sheeting as well to consolidate management activities that are currently done on spreadsheets.

    Pros

    Easy workflow customisation, implement web version with low technical skill, easy screen and form customisation, cheap enough to use just the features you want and ignore the rest, support is responsive

    Cons

    Use of HTML for to format printed documents is awkward (difficult to format to include in MS-Word etc), documentation is not great
