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.

    Genius ERP_great product for the money

    Reviewed on 20/8/2020

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    NetSuite

    Reasons for Choosing Genius ERP

    We outgrew ERPlite( a great product for 10 years of our business). We wanted something that would integrate with our CAD program and allow more ETO capabilites. We also wanted an integrated accounting software.

    Reasons for Switching to Genius ERP

    Great upfront sales team. They helped us see the benefits we could derive. It was difficult to actually talk to a sales person with Netsuite. Much of their comunciation is doen via chat and email. Genius called us the same day we asked for more info! Genius is less compex than Netsuite and much more affordable. We would have needed many add on modules in Netsuite that are included in the base Genius porgam

    System resilience is very good. Overall, we depend on Genius for our daily operations and this has proven successful for our business.

    Pros

    Product has a broad appeal across organizations, functions and processes.

    Cons

    Security and data privacy are a real challenge. Controlling who can see labor hours and labor costs and the ability to derive hourly rates by employees is very complex and not intuitive. Once understood, however, the ability to control who sees what is powerful, but the learning curve is steep and complex.

    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!)

    Overall, Genius has been a game changer when it came to our company and we are continuing to find new ways to use the software in our processes that we didn't think were possible prior to Genius.

    Pros

    Genius is a very easy user friendly system. If you know how one module works you can navigate your way through every single module with ease. It has helped us as a company refine processes and systems that weren't working when it came to a paper system that we had prior to Genius. They work amazing with all sizes of companies, but we felt as a small company that they worked better than others companies we looked at when it came to price and ease of implementing.

    Cons

    We bought the cloud version which is great because we can call or email Genius and they are always available to help with any problems, but we probably would have bought the web version now that we have used it only because we are using tablets now on the production floor and the software isn't supported with the version that we used.
