I think Batchmaster is a great, easy to use ERP system. Their customer support team seems to be very knowledgeable and they are very quick to respond when you are having issues or need a quick tip. The best part is the user friendly interface, it doesn't take much practice before you start feeling like you really know your way around the system.
It's hard to say. I think it would be nice if there was the ability to interface with more than one financial database. We have company's in the US and Canada so we have to use different versions of financial software but we cannot interface both with the same instance of Batchmaster. Whether this is something Batchmaster can change or not I'm not sure, maybe we need to look at different finance software options.
I would recommend that you give Batchmaster a try, it is a pretty easy to learn, user friendly piece of software and as I said before has all of the functionality we need and more. There are seemingly endless modules and utilities that you can utilize to make your companies process run smoother and without human error.

Very easy to use and the integration between our financial software and the manufacturing software work great.
Sometimes, the programming can be a little bit clunky, but it is not too bad at its worst. There are a lot worse software systems out there.
Just take it slow and make sure it is the right match for your needs. Ask questions, and the Batchmaster development team is great with answering questions.
Using batchmaster overall has been a positive experience. It calculates all the ingredients properly and very seldom makes mistakes on batch quantity.
The pros about the software is that mistakes are caught early on in the process. If a mistake is made you are more than likely to find it during the initial process.
Learning the software is difficult and not user friendly. The layout of the modules are not as easy as I would like them to be. Understanding each module and it’s fuctions does take time.
