Thanks for the info, but I've been to this site before.

You definitely have to pay a fee to obtain comparisons in depth.

I thought maybe I'd find end users on the Tech Republic site that may already have experience in one way or another with these systems.

Thanks anyway.

You're right

I occasionally read their articles but the #1 on search always seems to point to their pay eval database.

Hopefully someone else who uses one of these sees this. We use an industry specific erp, not among those.

Independent Consultant

It may be wise to hire an independent consultant. I've used all of these products you've listed here except SYSPRO. Out of the 4 you have mentioned I would go with Adonix, however I think you're cheating yourself if you don't look at Infor VISUAL Enterprise. It's by far the best SMB ERP solution as it was designed for manufacturing, the database and software is very stable, etc.

Adonix - great financials, good mfg - ASP type interface is nice.
Intuitive - wouldn't touch again
Syspro - no experience, have not heard anything either way.
Vantage - great "looking" interface, but functionality is NOT there. They will sell you that it can do what you want, but once you TRY to install it and once it finally is installed it will NOT work like it was when you demoed it!!! Stay away.
Infor VISUAL - financial package isn't as good as Adonix, but the mfg side is better by far then the rest you have mentioned. Interface isn't as sexy as either adonix or Vantage, but stability, functionality, and TOC is vastly better.

I'd be curious as to what you decide.

Intuitive ?

by acp2g In reply to Independent Consultant

Thank you for your reply. I'm becoming of the same mind as it relates to Vantage. I'm concerned about Infor VISUAL, as I didn't think they could offer mixed-mode manufacturing MRP support.

More important, however, is would you mind offering why you state, "Intuitive - wouldn't touch again"?

Syspro comment

My experience is with Syspro, and for mid-size, mixed-mode manufacturing I would definitely recommend it. Price-wise you will find it competitive, I believe. And as they have international presence in Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa, there will be references and experiences from elsewhere you can draw on if needed. If you are also considering integration issues to other apps, Syspro's e.Net functionality provides that.

Thank you for your feedback. It is sincerely appreciated.

I've seen statements regarding SYSPRO's development not offered in US. Have you heard or experienced this of SYSPRO?

Not sure what you mean by "SYSPRO's development not offered in US". As far as I know, whatever comes out of development becomes part of the worldwide product set.
