What do you like best?

1. Simple consistent implementation

2.Lots of framework level bells and whistles

3. Passionate team that engages with the feedback

4. Constantly improving - adding new features, rebuilding things that they think can be improved Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I've seen some bad implementations - which is not a product issue , but because ERPNext was the wrong product for the requirement or because it was poorly implemented. So even these are not product issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If it fits functionally, go for it. If you are not hands-on , consider working with a partner

If you are customizing for your needs , make sure you do your changes in an upgrade-friendly way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Simple to implement - ERP can be implemented in 4-6 weeks

2. It also can be extended to the extended eco-system with cutomer/vendor portal or through a shopping basket front-end

We have been able to get customers quickly online on the ERP - useful across domains - retail, distribution , service, manufacturing . Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

ERPNext has implemented lot's of international best practices and gives you mature workflows to handle standard business processes, such as writing invoices, keeping track of receivables, returning invoices, etc. As a services provider we keep all our business data in ERPNext; we don't have a single spreadsheet in our company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As an international ERP system, local features might be still missing for you country. For example it's perfectly adapted to Indian requirements but if you're from Germany you might miss some features that would make work more comfortable. Nevertheless, it's worth it and gets improved constantly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

The open source nature, design, community. They have a great forum of passionate users, always willing to help. It's a growing community.

I like is truly open source, and provides lifetime upgrades, unlike competitor Odoo, that is open core, but no upgrades. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Documentation for developer is lacking. Incomplete. There's a lot of functionality that requires looking into the source code to know how to do it, instead of being explicit in the documentation. There's not that much support for extensibility to core modules. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great investment, It's also great to develop in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I do realise that ERPNext can replace all traditional accounting system.

What do you like best?

The most I like of ERPNext is the way it was designed, the modularity of the suite have allowed the developers deliver the most comprehensive ERP for small and medium business, but is not only comprehensive as it is also extensible and with this combination you can create your own micro-verticals solutions for your business or as a SaaS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The suite is still under heavy development, and from one version to another there are obsolete API calls in a real short time, however, this was due the immatureness of the project, that is now much more mature. Another thing is that the documentation is well presented, but need to be more comprehensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You have to realize that ERPNext is oriented for small and medium size companies, it is not built, yet, to handle and enormous quantity of transactions, of course you can add more resources to allow more requests, but it is not fully optimized to do that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
