"We need to customize more often than we would like.""Customization and costs could be improved.""The solution is not best suited for larger-scale businesses.""The performance and virtual machine backup is not good with this solution and need improvements.""In Thailand, the support here could be better.

"SYSPRO at the moment is lacking on the project side. There's a module called Projects and Contracts, and it's a poorly designed module. One of my clients is a project-based organization, and they're finding it extremely difficult to manage their business using SYSPRO, to the point that they're looking at alternative solutions. The Projects and Contracts module is not a very useful tool. It does project accounting reasonably well, but in terms of putting in proper structures, like a work breakdown structure and so forth, it's actually quite poor. Their design or their architecture for the Projects module isn't good enough. They need to redesign it and redevelop it. They have made improvements. However, the problem is that if you're building on a bad foundation, then your building isn't going to be very strong. That's principally their problem. Any heavy equipment company would have a requirement to keep their equipment available for production. In that sense, SYSPRO has no maintenance management functionality. There's also no functionality for field services management. These two functionalities are critical for places like mines or for heavy equipment manufacturers who service the aftermarket and so forth. From a product perspective, this obviously isn't a good place to be because they are sort of taking themselves out of the market for quite a number of industries. They are constrained to manufacturing and distribution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The first time we tried to buy the newest version, it was expensive.""I have some subscription-based customer and a few customers who have perpetual licenses that hosted the application on the cloud.""The price of the solution is reasonable.""The price of the solution is reasonable.""I think the pricing is the best; it's cost effective for sure."

Overview
Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a global enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that provides small and midsize businesses greater control over their financials and can simplify their supply chain, manufacturing, and operations. It's quick to implement and easy to use, with the power to support your growth ambition.
SYSPRO enterprise resource planning (ERP) software supports the control, integration and synchronization of all aspects of the manufacturing process and accommodates both short and long production runs in several manufacturing environments. This single source solutionis compatible with computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS software), and it features several quality control measures. Most notable is the lot traceability function, which tracks raw materials through their entire life cycle, beginning with their receipt, manufacture and assembly, and moving on to their inspection, stocking and distribution. It also keeps track of expiration dates and certifications of quality. Another valuable feature of this mining industry software is the inventory management component, which accurately forecasts inventories by analyzing sales history and other factors. Several companies have implemented this software to improve their business operations, including U.S. Salt. They found SYSPRO's focus on the client/server environment and the solution's scalabilty as two reasons to implement this software. The software's combination of manufacturing, distribution and financial functions was enough to convince U.S. Salt that this was the right software for their company. The result for U.S. Salt was highly efficient operations that maintain inventory levels for on-demand shipments within three to five days. U.S. Salt also cited the usability of the software as a benefit. Their employees could easily use it and even personalize it for their work stations. SYSPRO is a global leader in ERP business software. With 35 years of experience in the industry, SYSPRO has gained the trust of more than 15,000 customers and has partnered with 1,500 ERP channels in 60 countries. SYSPRO has a 98 percent customer retention rate.
