Pro'sSeemingly quite flexible and versatile at an affordable price. Seems to do most of what is needed and can possibly be adapted to do more. Good communications and support. Use of tags, options, etc Cloud-based Easy data updates at any time Excel import (not just csv) Automatic overnight upload of data Ability to combine warehouses Small business solution supplier and therefore possibly more speedily amenable to sensible ideas which might enhance their software. Easy export of data to excel. Better use of categorisation than ForecastR (I think). Also seems to be slightly more logical. Unlimited user accounts. Integration with many platforms (albeit not the ones we currently use). A lot of data such as Tags, Brands, Options can be created pretty much on the fly without needing to create the header records first - makes ease of use that much more straightforward.Seemingly quite flexible and versatile at an affordable price. Seems to do most of what is needed and can possibly be adapted to do more. Good communications and support. Use of tags, options, etc Cloud based. Seems to have comprehensive help support.Seems like a very comprehensive system but typically comes with an 'engineer' support at a rather high price tag. Unlimited users. Cloud-based.Integrates with Odoo
Con'sHelp and FAQ's are rather thin on the ground (but what's there is quite good). Does not offer anything clever as regards warehouse and container space planning or budgeting.More of a complete WMS and so not easy to immediately see how to get the benefits of the system without the complete system.The cost - assuming you include the engineer they recommend. But if you have quite a high turnover even the software-only price tag gets quite high. Looked really great on the demo but a bit disappointing on the trial, especially that when you click on the various metrics etc it just opens up a large image rather than any kind of drilldown. It also does not feel very intuitive in real-time use.Very expensive Desktop-basedExpensive compared with other systems. Seems very unintuitive and complicated to get the hang of
