    Pros

    It is simple to understand. There is a logical flow to how the software has been built. I could easily create my product lists, do sales order and capture the inventory numbers.

    Cons

    The only thing I felt is that the software can be a little slow at times when moving from one link to another. This is unlike softwares which sit on your desktop and are pretty fast. However, having said that I don't think it bothers me much.

    Fills the gap that Quickbooks Online is neglected to provide

    Pros

    From the moment I signed up for a demo, Erplain was quick to respond and answer all my questions. We had some big concerns moving from Quickbooks Enterprise Desktop version to the Quickbooks Online version. I did my research on 3rd party apps that worked with QB to handle my multiple warehouses for my business. I signed up for 4 demo's. One called me back 3 days later. Rep from erplain customer service got right back to me, listened to our concerns and walked me through every step to get setup in the trial. The erplain interface was straightforward and worked with QB seamlessly. We are still in the trial phase of evaluation. More review to come. ..

    ease of use.

    Pros

    Very intuitive product that simplifies inventory management and integration with QB work well. Customer service experience is always top notch - very responsive team that listens to their customers and incorporates feedback into their future development plans. They are always improving the product and adding new features. Hands down the best QB integrated inventory app for a small business based on price, usability and customer support.

    Cons

    Still some room to improve on user personalization but this has been a big improvement in even the last 6 months. Ability to configure & design the invoices, sales orders, etc will be a significant step forward for the product once this is available.

    Consolidating many different tasks from a variety of departments into one system that is easy to us.

    Pros

    It is a one stop shop. Our company can manage several different departments on just this one easy to use platform.

    Cons

    There are a few things that are not able to be manipulated but Erplain is open to suggestions and constantly updates their platform to be more efficient.

    It makes managing our inventory levels efficient and easy rather than trying to track things going in and out via spreadsheets or other means.

    Pros

    I received a thorough demonstration of the product and any follow-up questions were answered in a timely fashion. The product works great and just as Arnaud explained it would. The customer service and willingness to work with my company's specific needs has made me a loyal customer. This platform does everything I need it to in order to run my company well and efficiently.

    Cons

    The only thing I wish it did was allow reordering of products directly from the site. It will let me know which products I need to order more of, but I am not able to order them in one click from the site. Otherwise, everything else is great!

    We are a new company who have taken over the running of a boat yard in the Caribbean with a hydraulic workshop which has numerous hose types and hydraulic fittings and wanted to have an inventory system in place that also produced invoices. I looked online at various different options and erplain looked the most attractive as it seemed to tick all the boxes but was at the same time, simple to use. From the very start, the customer support has been excellent - they responded quickly to all my questions (and there were many!) and the support they have offered from the online chat to the one-to-one demonstrations and also responding to some changes that we requested has been invaluable. Even when there was a problem with the system and I couldn't search for a product when creating an invoice, I contacted the team and they immediately looked into it and had rectified the problem within a few hours... We also suddenly found out that we had to produce our invoices in French and we were so pleased to discover that erplain can be in both English and French! and it's simple to switch between the two which is great. I love the intelligence feature - being able to see where we make most of our money and with what products, services or with which clients is great. We can instantly see what is the most profitable part of our business and therefore where we need to focus in order to maximize revenue. I cannot recommend erplain highly enough - it's so easy to use, the invoices can be created quickly and immediately emailed to the client - and being able to see instantly who has paid and who hasn't made keeping track of our business so much easier.

    Pros

    It's so easy to use and the support team is excellent.

    Cons

    I cannot think of one con!

    We build and sale furniture via our wholesale business. Now that we use Erplain, I finally know what I have in stock, what is available for sale and most importantly, the rest of team can access the same information. Customer support is great. They are quick and friendly.

    Pros

    The simplicity and logic of setup. It does a great job of hand holding without infantilizing.

    While on vacation last week, I was able to look at my sales and send a couple of purchase orders. I am finally able to delegate the creation of sale orders, shipping orders and invoices to my staff as they can access the inventory data too. The tutorial videos were very helpful! I only wish they had more.

    Pros

    It has a lot of great features and great reports. It's really easy to use and integrates well with the other programs we use for our business. The customer service is great, they get back to you very quickly and will help tailor the program to your needs.

    Cons

    I found Erplain about 8 months ago and I am glad I did. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles but it has the essential and it is easier to use than all the programs I tried before. I use it everyday to make sales, purchase orders and view some reports (unpaid invoices if my favorite).

    Pros

    Easy-of-use and implementation across our different locations.

    Cons

    None that our company has found.

    I am a plumber, I use Erplain to invoice my services and supplies. It is very convenient to keep track of my supplies and what I need to re-order. Their price is pretty competitive. I also like the PDF invoices, it make my small business more professional.

    Pros

    This is a huge help to do my sales orders, invoices and inventory in one system instead of using spreadsheets. They helped me import my data for free.

    Bye bye countless spreadsheets and manual tasks to keep my consulting business on track . Hello erplain! I have been using the software for about a year now, and I couldn¿t be more pleased. I am running a digital marketing consulting sole proprietorship and was pulling my hair out before discovering erplain in regards to managing my invoices and billing. erplain keeps me organized by making it so easy to track my time and send invoices to my clients but most of all, I finally have my finances in order! Finally a tool that offers great usability and save its users so much time. Easy to set up and navigate, seamless user experience, and fantastic customer service; it is money well spent!

    At first I was reluctant to switch from my old Excel sheets... I tried Erpalin, it was easy to get into it, interface is nice, it has everything (and just what) I needed. It looks like, for once, it has been developed by people that really know what it is to run a small business. In the end, there was no way for me to get back to my old Excel files! I'm very happy to use Erplain everyday.

    I love being able to generate my Sales orders and Invoices in PDF format and send them directly to my customers. The erplain team was able to import my customers, products and inventory from my spreadsheets so I didn't have to start from scratch. Nice service! They just added the ability to create purchase orders from my sales orders so I minimize my inventory levels.

    My business is in both countries UK and France and it is very convenient that erplain is both in French and English! Also, our company is based on a ecommerce website directed at end consumers. Our arts&craft activity requires to buy stock but put items together as well as to create kits. Not being technology specialists, we were really surprised how easy it is to use for our inventory management and how much we now run our business more efficiently! We have recently moved to Shopify and it makes a real difference that erplain now has the Shopify integration.

    Our small company has a BtoB business in distribution. It involves many SKUs and multiple warehouses; we had been using spreadsheets for many years and believe me, this was far for optimal! But it was time for a change and find a new solution for our sales orders and inventory management. Erplain was a great fit for our needs, they were very supportive and friendly from the beginning. I could not do less than recommend erplain as it has really improved our productivity.
