Great product, excellent customer service and a devoted development team

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: 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.

Inventory control for warehousing

4.0 4 years ago

Comments: We can now see all of our warehouse inventory in one place and use the sales order andshipping order functions to keep track of all our shipments and product in real time. We can also see the info remotely which is a great help. We use the invoicing function a little bit for our small operation and it does everything we need to keep track of receivables when we integrate it into our accounting software.

Pros:

Erplain was super easy to set up and get started. We loaded info for a trail run and never looked back. All of my employees got up to speed very quickly as it is a snap to learn. Great for warehouse employees to help track our inventory.

Cons:

Sometimes you wish there were more reporting options or the cloud interface was faster but overall it gets everything done that we need.

Alternatives Considered: Personica

Reasons for Choosing Erplain: Our old system was obsolete and not supported any longer so we had to look for an option.

Reasons for Switching to Erplain: The simplicity of Erplain was a key factor. The price point could not be beat.

A Good Sales Tracker

4.0 4 years ago

Comments: Erplain is good at tracking the sales/purchase chain and also good at tracking inventory.

Pros:

I appreciate that I can see exactly where orders are in the sales progress chain. For example, I can see at a glance whether an order is shipped or whether it has been invoiced or even paid.

Cons:

I wish there were ability to take deposits on sales orders or give deposits on purchase orders. If there is, I haven't found it yet. I have yet to sort out the way profit on services can be organized. The software integration with QBO is ok if one person is working with both softwares. If the bookkeeper is in control of QBO and you are only working with Erplain, there will be issues.

Alternatives Considered: Zoho Inventory

Reasons for Choosing Erplain: This software has a good graphic interface and works fine for my business type and size. I hope that some issues can be sorted out.
