User Reviews of Aptean Industrial Manufacturing ERP Workwise Edition

Submitted on October 17th, 2019 by Dave Manahan

The main reason we were looking for a new ERP system was because we were a Y2K company. Our existing software had been purchased some time ago and modified heavily. We determined that maintaining it wasn’t feasible from an economic standpoint.

Having a full featured, fully integrated system, with all of the modules working together, the ability to look at inventory control and all of the manufacturing requirements, were things that we didn’t have before. The integrated system brought us greater efficiency.

With our previous system there was double, sometimes triple data entry because the modules weren’t integrated so there wasn’t any information being passed back and forth. That alone was a tremendous time saver for us.

The visibility of information, being able to import certain information and being able to create customer orders via spreadsheet, were major performance enhancements for us.

We use close to ninety percent of the modules in the system. We certainly use the customer order processing side of it, all of the inventory controls, we use MRP, all of the purchasing modules, accounting.

We had a system that had been in place for about ten years and it turned out it was not a very good manufacturing system. It was more of an accounting system that they tried to put manufacturing into.

What’s really nice is to have everything in one package. My financials are in the same package as the manufacturing and the customer orders. Everything integrates seamlessly. Bringing in inventory management has been a huge benefit for us. Being able to jump between workbenches and different points of data has been really nice.

We have about twenty folks that use the system, that are not here in Topeka, Kansas. So in our prior system they would have to pick up a VPN connection and log into our system and with being on the road and traveling, that did not work well for them at all.

We really hope that it’s going to help the guys in the field manage their sales and prospects so that way when they are out, they have a good understanding as to what’s going on with their customers and who their new customers potentially are.

Everything is seamlessly integrated. As soon as we create an order, that order flows into manufacturing, manufacturing can understand where the demand is coming from, purchasing can understand where the demand is coming from and be able to see all of that data seamlessly.

WorkWise ERP has many strong modules to manage the shop floor, manage the financials and since it is SQL based, you can easily get at the data for custom reporting.

The Good…

With the eProduction add on, the shop floor has a clean interface to interact with shop orders. The Workbenches give users control over how they work day to day.

The Bad…

We would like the ability to group sales orders and the related shop orders into 1 manageable unit for shop floor scheduling
