    Pros

    Genius ERP software developpers really helped us by programming custom macros.
    There is no limit to customization.

    Cons

    Unresolved bugs and enhancement request about speed slows down the workflow.
    Sometimes they should test more new features before launching.

    lot control of our raw material inventory- HUGE! scheduling across all departments

    Pros

    the underlying structure of the software was thoroughly scrutinized by our company auditor, something we failed to do on a previous software that we purchased. Their confidence allowed us to 'trust' Genius and really dig-in to make it work across our company departments. Genius is good on visuals as well as text.

    Cons

    no way to print the ms project display from work order management status
    scheduling fractures operation time, sometimes into seconds, split over a dozen different moments or even days?
    not enough smart-tags or hyperlink functions; I have to keep 8 different pages open all the time to get complete information.
    too many French terms left untranslated
    too much reliance on reports rather than displays

    Pros

    I use the software a few times every week to run reports and it's very easy to use. I like how you can link data with excel and export all sorts of info.

    Cons

    I don't like that you licenses are costy and are not assigned to users, but to the company and you can't log in of no license is available. Sometimes it's super slow.

    We are manufacturing charging station for electrical vehicle; Our BOM are complex because they are including many parts. Genius MRP help us to plan and organize our production floor and controlling our inventory. It help us for traceability of products and component that have been use in the manufacture it. We're using Genius MRP for 2 years when we decided to integrate the financial suite. Since all our data are grouped in a single system, it is easier to find information; to possibility of drilling down greatly improves financial analysis.

    Pros

    The software meets our needs; interfaces are intuitive, easy to use. People who work at Genius are competent and are able to understand our needs.

    Cons

    Documentation and user guide are not always up-to-date; I knew that a new customer service department was now in place. This surely will help get answers quickly to questions of use.

    Pros

    It is customizable; Quite powerful with enough work. They basically give you a software that is almost useless and then you tell them how you want reports to look, etc and then they program it for you. Since reports and even macros (automatically attaching drawings to items/WO/POs, etc) can be custom programmed it gives you great flexibility and power.

    Cons

    Hard to tell what I like the least; And I don't like saying bad things about any company but for the sake of others I'd like to share our experience and hopefully save others the headaches and money we've lost.
    Everything runs on modules and unlike almost every other program I've ever tried, each window takes from 5-8 seconds to open. Everything seems very slow!
    The vendor sucks money every step of the way. We average about double the amount on maintenance and update fees then we already pay for a yearly subscription so we can get the "free updates". It is ridiculous. You pay them (annual subscription) so you are allowed to get updates for "free" but you have to pay them for installing those updates. For real, why not make a program so the customer can help themselves? Because they want the money; their business survives on training and hourly wage working for/with the customer. (I'm not saying it's wrong - but that's the only way they make money!)

    Pros

    The stability of the system is stunning. We love the way the database is configured and what it can reach. The level of security seem very good although a little complicated to configure. Genius have been a great partner to us and we like to work with them. Dynamic team and customer oriented development.

    Cons

    Difficulty to get programmers's availiability to improve the functionality of the system (reporting and configuration).

    The service support seem a little impersonnal.
