Pros

Once you are able to find what you need, which was not easy to learn, the information that you need is easily accessible.

Cons

I find that the system is confusing. I have been using the system for over a year and find that it is hard to navigate and hard to find what I need. The screens are all coded so you need to know the code of the screen to get to it.

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

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.

Terrible Software

Value for Money

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.
