User Reviews of Genius ERP

Submitted on January 3rd, 2019 by Eric Dubé from IEL

This is a very good ERP for a small to medium size manufacturing company.

The Good…

This ERP is very fast and user friendly. You can easily make custom reports with it.

The Bad…

Not as customizable as big ERP like Epicor. Some reports or other functionalities may stop working after an upgrade… I encourage you to test every new version thoroughly before updating your production server.

Genius is a great program for smaller companies who need to step up their ERP program, but are not yet able to have a completely personalised program made for them. It addresses all aspects of the manufacturing process, from the bill of material to billing the finished product.

The Good…

The best part of genius is the ability to do scheduling

The Bad…

Personalised reports are difficult to deal with when doing updates of the program. Things that work fine in one version suddenly disappear in the next. And their customer service definately needs updated. It takes way to long to settle problems that are being had with the program.

Submitted on December 10th, 2018 by Jamieson Pouw from The Bucket Shop Inc.

It’s easy to use and divided into modules that support a phased approach. The modules are comprehensive and are well suited to our industry.

The Good…

The individual modules allow for easier introduction and learning. The user interface is logical, and users and administrators catch on quickly.

The Bad…

It is a slightly dated look, and required 5 or more steps for data manipulation.

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.

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.
