Exact Max ERP

Pros

Majorly used for to assemble to manufacture. It is very useful with flexible batch processing, part production and production planning.

Cons

It needs proper training to start with and the basic knowledge about manufacturing orders and standard reporting orders.

An Unhappy Customer

The Exact Max program purchased in 2017 has been a profound disappointment. The initial cost was the tip of the iceberg. Now in early 2020 we are $ 200,000+ into it. The system has adapted very poorly to our small size manufacturing facility. We bought it to maintain an accurate inventory. That has not worked. Our accounting is in shambles as the link up with Quick Books seems chaotic and unpredictable. The Max people seem to have very limited knowledge how to interface with Quick Books. We feel stuck, compelled to keep trying to make the system work because we’ve invested so much time and money into it. We are still trying to make it work for our needs. It will take us thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours more to get it running properly and we are not even confident that it will ultimately meet our needs.

Pros

What is was supposed to do for us. We thought we would be able to enter our data and it would add new items and subtract as we pulled them out of inventory. Not so.

Cons

It was not at all as advertised and every time we needed help it cost us more money.

software is good for a small company, but does not allow accrual or post dating transactions. This can be a limitation as you MUST close your books before continuing on with current month transactions.

Software works great, but the limitation of having to close books right away can cause problems.

Pros

Good for small Company that closes accounting books quickly. Easy to use and modify the transactions to post wherever you want them to post. We currently use it and post everything to QuickBooks and the interaction is seamless.

Cons

does not allow accrual or post dating transactions. This can be a limitation as you MUST close your books before continuing on with current month transactions.

Not a good experience

Pros

The "full version" (as per the reseller) of the product will accomplish most of what you'll need. However, like most ERPs, it really depends on the quality of the implementation. EXACT appeared to have everything from the basics all the way to shop floor control. The demo which we were shown appeared to be able to accomplish most of what we needed, however we were unclear of the cost and were unclear as to whether we were being shown an customized or out-of-the-box solution

Cons

Very tough to navigate through without proper training and support. The product was semi-functional after a sizable investment however there always seemed to be an excuse as to why things didn't work as what we were sold on. It seems like any minor customization which would have otherwise been an out-of-the-box feature with most ERPs would cost an arm and a leg.

Basic ERP

This is bargain basement software. While it may do the minimum of what you require, that's probably all it will do.

Pros

It's got a simple interface It does an adequate job of keeping track of inventory and keeping track of sales orders

Cons

Not a lot of customization possible and simple common-sense features are missing. For example if you see a transaction ID/Sales Order etc on one window, you cannot click through to get to the details, you have to open a new (specific window) and copy/paste the information you want to see the details of. Basic functionality is just not there
