Genius ERP/MRP is production management made for enterprises manufacturing with non repeating or repeating products, which are oriented toward sub-contracting. For the manager anxious to prepare a summary or detailed estimation and then to convert it into a customer order, Genius will automatically answer your needs. The order confirmation is then converted into a factory WORK ORDER to insure a follow-up on production. Rightly, Genius helps you evaluate the work load by operation (ex: casting, painting, assembly, inspection, etc…). The inventory is updated when confirmation of usage of material for the order in the factory is made. The list of requested material is then issued from the estimation list (which can be modified at confirmation of order).

This ERP/MRP type solution helps you make Material Requirement Planning or Employment Requirement Planning according to a backlog. The same practice can be made from sales estimations with the help of MRP SIMULATOR. It works as well on orders as on inventory manufacturing environment and it is totally integrated to BAR CODE interfaces for labor, material and inventory locations.

Customer orders, shipping and invoicing

Manage your backlog of customer orders with ease and provide unparalleled service. This module lets you quickly see the progress of work orders to ensure timely delivery. Genius Manufacturing also allows you to print documents such as waybills, bills of lading and commercial invoices.

Estimating and quoting

Assess the total cost of producing a product by creating a BOM that includes labour costs, equipment costs and materials costs to determine an appropriate selling price.

Genius can email the quote to your client and monitor its progress. When your client accepts the quote, convert it into an order and create new products with a few clicks.

Genius Bill of Materials

Projects always require documentation: drawings, models, specifications, or compliance and inspection documents. Online document management means that you can attach them to items, allowing the automation of these documents during production, among other advantages.

Inventory Control

Genius Manufacturing helps you avoid interruptions and other problems related to changing demand. Using the concepts of inventory management (MIN, MAX, lead time) and the ability to locate your inventory in multiple warehouses, the system will help you establish “just in time” management practices. This module can display, with supporting evidence, the exact path of your inventory.

Costs add up in real time in Genius Manufacturing as users make transactions. You can measure the progress of manufacturing or project costs in relation to the estimated budget.

This helps you avoid surprises and stay in control of costs. Genius Manufacturing also offers a series of reports showing historical production costs and trends. With Genius Manufacturing, you can quickly identify profitable projects as well as products that will require adjustments in order to become profitable.

Production Planning

Genius Manufacturing gives you an overview of your production floor in real time. It clarifies and structures the instructions for each task and allows you to execute tasks according to an established plan.

Genius Manufacturing takes planning sheets and links between different production orders into account to set completion dates for projects based on your production capacity. Work instructions can be provided in paper format or through a touch screen workstation.


Genius Manufacturing allows you to quickly make simultaneous price inquiries for multiple items to multiple suppliers and get prices from your suppliers without having to re-enter information.

In addition, the recommended repurchasing function can identify potential shortages by considering inventory management, key suppliers and the dates when the material is required according to production orders. The application can analyze your needs to help avoid interruptions and email purchase orders created by the system.


Define tolerances and get immediate notifications of undesirable situations or events that require crisis management, helping you to make the right decisions through dashboards.

Genius Manufacturing puts a range of reports at your fingertips, helping you to analyze information from your production floor. You can also create additional reports and modify existing documents.

Whether you need to generate a report using Microsoft Excel, view a report online or conduct a thorough analysis of historical data to identify trends, Genius Manufacturing offers several solutions to users in your organization.

Reviews of Genius ERP/MRP

Mike says...

Genius ERP is an out-of-the-box ERP solution for manufacturers handling custom and repeat jobs. It’s designed for companies that don’t want to invest heavily in IT, but would like to benefit from features that handle complex manufacturing from end to end.

The good: This is an easy-to-use, easy-to-implement system for SMEs. The modules cover pretty much everything needed and the system does a good job of centralizing info for real-time business oversight and planning.

The bad: The interface looks dated.

Mike says...

For smaller businesses with complex operations this is not the software I would recommend. It is best suited for the accountant and not the entire company.

The good: We have used this software for 5 years and its hard to think of much we like about it. The amount of information you can provide about a product is the only thing that sticks out.

The bad: The ability to make customized reports. The errors all appear in french instead of english. When consuming material if it appears more than once in a BOM it does not provide a running total of material left available.
