"Best Open Source ERP that is better than even paid ERPs"

Pros: the look and feel of ERPNext is very appealing. it is inline with the present best practices, followed in UI/UX.

Cons: The software can integrate with some of the open source PLM Tool like Oddo, and open Source MES and IOT tools. this can create a complete opensorce ecosystem for business

"The best choice for teams that have some technical knowledge in house"

Comments: The community is vibrant and fast. There are telegram messenger groups for live communication. There is a super active forum platform. And there is a structured and well maintained github project. If you want to be part of this community, it's easy to get rolling.

Pros: The extensibility and flexibility of ERPNext is unrivaled. Every field you create becomes instantly available as an API point in the powerful interface of the ERP software. All relevant core features of an ERP system are mature and help you learn to do it the right way as a company. The team is rigid and consequent in making sure, that this streamlined process of creating opportunities, quotations, sales orders and sales invoices is kept intact which is very healthy and keeps customizations sane.

Cons: ERPNext is not yet easy and straight forward to use. If you have no idea of ERP software and you have no technical skills at all this is not for you. I would love to see the team focus more on the UX of the interface and the ease of use for new and very occasional users. The software feels like it's really made for experts and daily users. That said, we have compared ERPNext with Salesforce and SAP and the open source solution really shines in comparison. But having all the ERP world suck at UX does not mean that this is an unsolvable problem. Also the documentation of ERPNext is not job or use case driven and very technical at times. We have started to try to help this. But it's easy to ask and not so easy to deliver. Work in progress ...

"Dynamisch wie kaum ein anderes ERP System am Markt"

Pros: Standard DIN Formate für Dokumente lassen sich einfach per Script einrichten (DIN5008)
Die Oberfläche ist auf das wesentliche reduziert.
Mit ein paar Schlungen findet man sich in den wichtigsten Breichen wie Verkauf, CRM, Einkauf, Lager und Finanzen zurecht.
Shopify & WooCommerce Connectoren sind gleich an Board.

Cons: Es fehlt leider ein integriertes leistungsstarkes Shopsystem.
Schön wäre noch, wenn es bald ein Fiedlservice Modul für Geräteservice-Akten geben könnte.

"Review"

Comments: Get your work organized in a cost effective way

Pros: This software has a search field which is so powerful in assisting the user to get to the setting he or she wants simply by typing it

Cons: New to the market so many companies don't trust it fully.

Vendor Response

by Frappe Technologies on 2019/08/06

Thank you for the honest review! As for the trust factor, we are slowly but surely getting there. Frappe Technology, as an OEM for ERPNext, is working with Enterprises to create high value and build a stronger brand which users can identify with.

As for the product itself, it is now close to 10 years old (Frappe just celebrated its 11th anniversary) and now has a visible presence in the market as a cost-effective ERP solution especially when compared to giants like SAP, Oracle, and Dynamics.

"An affordable feature packed customisable ERP Solution."

Comments: Automate everything. Take it all online. Go paperless. I've been able to achieve these with relative ease.

Pros: #1: FOSS. The biggest reason I like FOSS is not because it's free. It's because the entire ecosystem becomes more efficient. College grads don't need to go through expensive training. Documentation is more complete and can be supplemented through forums where people are more responsive because they feel like they are a part of a community. It has most of the features that you require.

Cons: The fact that is has so many features built in takes a while to get used to. But I don't think that's a con. If there was anything that could use a little improvement, it's the Website module. Not super easy to use for a non-technical person.
