    It is a great software to use. The only drawback is the amount of extra steps to get things done.

    We like this software, and we have been using it for years.

    Pros

    Great compatibility with third party software. Once you know how to use it, it is very simple to use.

    Cons

    Extra steps to get things done. Time consuming software. It glitches from time to time making the software slow.

    Pros

    Everyone in the office seems to prefer this system over our current... however I do not. The only pro that I can think of is that the information is organized

    Cons

    I dislike that you need to know the exact name of the screen (code) to find the information you need. It is not intuitive

    Pros

    Lawson is a one stop shop when it comes to employee and accounting data. It is fairly easy to use and I like the ability to easily drill down on a particular category.

    Cons

    It does not easily integrate with the payroll software that we use. I also wish the canned reporting and ad hoc reporting features were a little less cumbersome.

    Pros

    Connectivity and interactivity between varying modules, internally and externally.
    Accidental changes could alter default setup.

    Cons

    Hard to make changes without reaching out to a certified tech.
    Module names are unidentifiable without reference.

    Pros

    I liked the way this program ranked resumes for me to review. The ATS function worked very well and emailed me when a new resume came in.

    Cons

    Sorting applicants took a few extra steps that at times slowed me down, but I usually left that task to the end of the week.

    Pros

    Lawson is easy to get used to and is a great system. It housed a ton of information and was simple to retrieve that informaiton

    Cons

    It was like staring at an old computer. The system is not appealing to the eye and is complicated with button and keyboard commands.

    I enjoyed using Lawson software for warehousing transactions at Society for Family Health in Zambia as it was tailor made for in-house use only and was easy to setup due to its cloud configuration.

    The software made work generally easy as it reduced loads of paper work. I loved it.

    Pros

    Excellent for in-house use.
    No physical servers required as it was cloud based.
    Able to coordinate work even when one is on the go.
    Easy of running maintenance tasks.
    Customized report creation
    Multi-currency setup
    User friendly
    One can access the system for as long as there is internet connectivity

    Cons

    Tailored for in-house use, hence no commercial attractiveness to other organizations.
    Managed centrally, hence takes time for one to get set up e.g. staff depended on the HQ to run setup.

    Pros

    Has the ability to handle divisional reporting and multi-currency as well as switch between the two on the fly. That's about the only pro albeit a small win.

    Cons

    They say that good software can make or break an organization. This couldn't be more true as I can say that this software definitely broke the organization I was in. By far the worst ERP system I've ever used. Most of the functions do not make sense, it was difficult to understand and even the specialists that we had hired admitted that the software was terrible, at best.
