Genius ERP

Enterprise resource planning for SME custom manufacturers

About Genius ERP

Genius ERP by Genius Solutions is an all-in-one, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for small and medium custom manufacturers with features for managing inventory, projects, customers, employees, production processes, vendors, accounts, and more. The cloud-based tool is specifically designed for manufacturers handling make-to-order, engineer-to-order, custom-to-order and assemble-to-order projects within industries including machinery, transportation, food production, and more.

With the aim of helping businesses to manage and automate their manufacturing processes, Genius ERP facilitates project, customer, employee, and vendor management. The project management features within Genius ERP allow users to plan labor capacity, set and track goals, generate estimates, schedule tasks, track time, and more. Tools for quoting, estimating, invoicing, and shipping aid with managing vendors and customers, and real-time work orders and progress tracking allow businesses to keep their customers in the loop at all times. Automatic inventory tracking ensures that businesses can keep track of materials in real time, and alerts can be triggered for potential stock shortages, meaning users can carry out reorders and make price inquiries to vendors.

Genius ERP also offers tools for transforming CAD designs into bills of materials and requests for quotations in order to automate engineering processes and reduce data entry errors. The system also includes measures for quality control through automatic non-conformance reports and corrective action input and assignment. The Genius ERP production planning tools facilitate task scheduling based on capacity and other relevant metrics, prioritizing of workloads vs capacity, real-time monitoring of work-order completion, expense tracking for jobs, and more. Finances can be managed within Genius ERP with real-time, synchronous data entry for accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and banking management.

Key benefits of Genius ERP

    Genius ERP - Medium Sized Manufacturer Review

    The business issue we needed to solve was the individual software silos that we had to perform a total process. It was fragmented and time consuming to move data through the individual systems. Genius helped us solve the problem quickly and efficiently. Their support group is industry leading!

    Pros

    Genius ERP is a very comprehensive, module based solution. It integrated our time keeping requirements for production, our Engineering drawings, the Estimating and Quoting functions, Purchasing, and Accounting. It truly is enterprise wide software. It is a very logical interface to understand, and integrates well with our Payroll platform.

    Cons

    If there was a Payroll option, it would be complete! We needed to customize reports for our environment, which was understandable, but outside the initial project scope.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Hi Jamieson,

    it's great to hear that Genius ERP is working out for you and that you have been able to integrate your business I'm also glad that you find our custom support team to be very helpful. I'll pass your wish for a payroll module onto our development team. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, I really appreciate it. - Jesse Linklater, Genius ERP

    Our company has seen many tasks that were being duplicated in various spreadsheets eliminated. All the data needed by any department is now in one place - quoting, sales, production, inventory management. All the users can see what relates to their department and share easily with others. We are still "new" to Genius, only 8 months in. We still have many things we have not had a chance to learn or put into practice but each week we are finding new ways to save time and improve our results.

    Pros

    Genius has many features we selected it for. It allows customizable BOMs that can continually be updated throughout the build by the engineering team. The Lifecycle engineering feature was core to our selecting the product. It has the flexibility to allow preliminary material buys before the design is complete, and still track these to the job. The material planning and control features are also easy to use and offer flexible solutions.
    We integrated Genius into our business in about 8 weeks. They provide a full team of support to help get it up and running! Their support team contiues to be there when needed.

    Cons

    If anything is a bit weak in Genius it is the integrated accounting module. It is not as user friendly as our previous system ( QB). The trade-off though of being able to see live job or order costs outweigh any other concerns. All new products take time to get used to.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Hi Donnalyn, Thank you so much for this review! It's great to hear that in the short time you have been using our ERP it has been working really well for you we look forward to a long partnership with you!

    You have to pay for everything all thetime; Very poor customer service

    Reviewed on 26/5/2016

    Pros

    It is customizable; Quite powerful with enough work. They basically give you a software that is almost useless and then you tell them how you want reports to look, etc and then they program it for you. Since reports and even macros (automatically attaching drawings to items/WO/POs, etc) can be custom programmed it gives you great flexibility and power.

    Cons

    Hard to tell what I like the least; And I don't like saying bad things about any company but for the sake of others I'd like to share our experience and hopefully save others the headaches and money we've lost.
    Everything runs on modules and unlike almost every other program I've ever tried, each window takes from 5-8 seconds to open. Everything seems very slow!
    The vendor sucks money every step of the way. We average about double the amount on maintenance and update fees then we already pay for a yearly subscription so we can get the "free updates". It is ridiculous. You pay them (annual subscription) so you are allowed to get updates for "free" but you have to pay them for installing those updates. For real, why not make a program so the customer can help themselves? Because they want the money; their business survives on training and hourly wage working for/with the customer. (I'm not saying it's wrong - but that's the only way they make money!)

    The implementation team has been very helpful and informative in getting the system configured to go live.

    Pros

    We like the ability of this software to be able to handle custom BOM's that we use in our manufacturing processes. This allows us to load BOM's to the system and manage our manufacturing for each course.

    Cons

    Nothing at this time. The software is meeting the requirements that we anticipated.

    Pros

    The team that helped us implement the software helped us customize the software to fit our company and best industry practices. We are really happy with the work flow of this software.

    Cons

    Integration was easy and the flow is great. I do wish the software had the ability to allow at lease an administrator to delete or Undo transactions that were accidentally confirmed or the ability to at lease minimally edit confirmed transactions (Dates, Text, different fields, ETC.)

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Hi Christian, Glad to hear that the switch to Genius from Quickbooks is working out for you! Thanks for leaving us a review!
