What do you like best?

With Genius ERP, our lives have become very prosperous since it delivered us thorough ERP Solutions. It has all the essential tools that we can use to decrease the cost and uplift our productivity. It has many features by which we can manage our customer relations and can do production planning too. Scheduling is also part and parcel of success and with it, we can schedule everything. Every module has given us chance to import and export and also we can perform editing and can customize the reports. Also, its user interface has no ambiguity and everything is very clear and is modern too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It should be its mobile application too since it is a time when things need to be handy and since this software has become our necessity so it should be made available for cellphones too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Genius ERP is a smart solution for ERP, with it, we can decrease the cost and can uplift our productivity. It also enabled us to schedule and we can import and export in each module. We can conveniently customize reports too. The only thing I feel as missing in it is its Mobile application otherwise it is a complete ERP package and is working exactly the way we expected it to be.

What do you like best?

Genius allows us to fully customize our product BOMs by using the Engineering Lifecycle features. We can customize in Genius from preloaded parts or upload them from a CAD2BOM interface. Time and effort have been reduced and keying errors virtually eliminated.

We also like the feature tied to the engineering lifecycle that allows us to load preliminary parts to purchasing which the design team knows will be long lead. Previously we would have to track long lead parts outside of the BOM and wait for the BOM to be fully loaded to show the parts bought for the job. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We are using the integrated genius accounting package. It is not as user friendly as what we used in the past (QB), but it give us the opportunity to fully link our costs to the product/job, something not possible in QB. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We have eliminated the need for many separate spreadsheets and various individual planning tools. Now at a glance, the production team can see what is coming down the pipe as well as what stage each job on the floor is at. Reduction in redundancy has helped free up time for other tasks.

I enjoy the ability to easily customize reports and import/export functions in each module. The work flow and task automation have greatly increased the function of our business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not having the ability to reverse, edit or undo confirmed tasks makes correcting things difficult. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The ability for anyone to print and view fabrication/assembly plans for every part in Genius has saved a ton of time as we used to have engineering spend half a day printing plans now Geniuses batch printing allows anyone with access to print drawings in ten minutes. We have also increased our scheduling and inventory management significantly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The system didn't meld well with our current processes and resources. We have spent a lot more time than anticipated customizing and getting creative with the system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The system helps promote good documentation. Are old systems were very messy and Genius helps us keep up with good house keeping. We have seen improvements in tracking open sales orders and following up on outstanding invoices. Information is easy to get to and understand. This system really helped us improve our parts warehouse. We were able to cut back how much unnecessary inventory was stored and inventory accuracy increased dramatically.

What do you like best?

Being in custom manufacturing, I really enjoy the ease of WIP, labor and cost tracking in Genius. We have been using it for a few years now and cannot imagine going back to other softwares. The ability to accurately track labor, material and time is paramount for us to quote future projects. Genius make this process very easy, we can look at predecessors and use that for quoting future projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Like all softwares we have used I wish there were buttons I could move, and screens I could consolidate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike, but like any other ERP, you need to put a lot of effort to keep it clean. No more round corners. As they say, garbage in, garbage out. Forces us to be more rigourous. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Genius is a ERP software that uses windows based application to maximize the user friendliness. The reports are fully customization and all modules link to one another ( which may be a bad thing as well if your inter-department communication is weak) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Genius ERP does not allow keyboard shortcuts yet. On other apps which mirror windows, you can use your keyboard shortcuts; but Genius disallows it. It also does not have the ability to calculate on the spot like quickbooks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

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

Genius has revitalized our companies ERP. It has gotten everything organized, structured and flowing well. We now have a strict process to follow, and Genius will not allow the process to be broken.

The ability to have everyone go to one place to see information has been a great improvement for our staff.

Daily inventory tracking,Job costing and employee time sheet management . Time sheet management by far has been the greatest improvement .We had a manual written time sheet method before ,having the employees clock jobs live has improved labor data as well as reduced redundant data entry. Inventory tracking has been the next biggest improvement ,buy having the shop floor enter the data live we no longer rely solely on an estimated material usage. Those two things combined have provided excellent data for job costing Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
