Software that looks like it was written in 1982, and has not been updated since. It is - quite simply - the worst ERP software I’ve ever used. If you want to spend a lot of time tabbing through fields you don’t need to use, and don’t mind not being able to use a mouse (remember, in 1982, mice were not ubiquitous like they are now), you’ll enjoy your time with Pronto. If you like having to follow a non-sensical workflow (e.g. working through the multiple pages when simply receipting a PO - why do I have to ‘receive’ a PO and then ‘update’ it, too? WTH?), you will enjoy your time with Pronto. If, however, you want to use a well-designed system so you can maximise efficiency, my advice is to look elsewhere. The developers charge $3400 ex-GST for each backend license, which is insane. Where’s the money going? It’s certainly not being put into improving the software.
