User Reviews of xTuple

Submitted on March 15th, 2023 by an anonymous xTuple user.

A search was began to replace our current ERP Netsuite. The main pain point was lack of automation across the shop floor, as well as real time visibility across production. Several software options were reviewed and in the end xtuple was not only able to meet the enhanced features but were a stand out choice because of cost. It was the most affordable.

We looked at about 4 different software packages and xTuple was the most flexible. They had both flexible pricing and functionaility. Fit our discrete automotive manufacturing needs. Liked the way we are able to price it out by shop user vs a full user whcih let us keep costs down.

The Good…

Very flexible product. Different pricing for shop floor users and full users.

The Bad…

None at this time. Still implementing the program.

We demod xTuple along with a handful of other systems. xTuple had all of the features we needed. It also had more manufacturing capabilities that we didn’t need. We ended up going with a custom program that was more tailored towards distribution.

The Good…

Met our needs and budget

The Bad…

Geared towards manufacturing and we are a distribution company. More features than we needed

xTuple ERP is a good ERP/accounting solution with a number of advantages over traditional legacy systems. The system is platform independent (windows/mac/linux) and commercial/open source. There is a free community version which is very good for evaluation, testing and learning and will be sufficient for many small and medium sized companies. There are also premium enterprise solutions which handle advanced manufacturing and distribution for larger companies. I have been involved in a number of implementations, and the system performs very well.

The Good…

The program has a lot of powerful features, and a strong community. The software is open and follows industry standards. Since the program is open source, it can be installed and tested against your particular needs. There is good documentation available, and community forums for exchanging information about best practices etc. It is well localized for north american use, but also supports many other countries, languages, currencies etc.

The Bad…

The company has spent a lot of time and resources on developing a new infrastructure and architecture for the future. However, the benefits have not really been apparent to the community. I think that the project would have been better off if they had spent those resources on developing more features on the current, mature platform which works well. To their credit, I believe they have recognized this and are taking steps to make the current application client a first class citizen, during the transition which will take many years.
