Pros: Very reliable and stable system that allows us to run almost every one of our business processes on it. The product has matured over the past 20 years to encompass our company's entire landscape, including financials, inventory control, manufacturing and scheduling, bi-directional traceability, warehouse management, etc. My favorite Ross feature is its active user community and Aptean's commitment to listening and engaging with them. Aptean is by far the most customer focused software company I have ever worked with.

Cons: Uses a development language that is not well known. That being said, it is a very easy language to learn and begin developing in.

Overall: Ross' rich feature set, functionality, ease of integration and customization provides the perfect infrastructure to operate and grow our company.

Ross ERP is a user friendly suite designed for specific industry verticals.

Pros: It is a great fit for the Food & Beverage Process industry. It is the heart and soul of our business and Aptean leadership is definitely customer focused and listens to the user community. I like the feature and functionality improvement process that the supplier uses and believe this ERP suite is affordable and sufficient for the million and billion dollar companies.

Cons: It is coming and currently in development, I want the modules to be UI browser based (Chrome, IE, etc.) so there is no need to load a software client and I can use any type of mobile device. I have seen some preliminary development on this and it is exciting which will make the ease of use and screen flow outstanding.

Overall: It is the heart of our system of record and has performed extremely well for us over the last 18 years of food and beverage process manufacturing. We have most recently taken on massive core and new product growth during our expedited capital investment plan and Ross ERP has sustained the growth and speed of our implementation plan.

Ross is an excellent process manufacturing ERP system. Flexible and powerful, Great user base.

Pros: Flexible and customizable to fit unique needs of our business. There is functionality that just works better than most ERP systems specifically dealing with process manufacturing

Cons: The only con that i can think of is actually not a con to others. It is the development language used. It is not a mainstream language

Overall: Flexability and comprehensive functionality

Our implementation was great and we've also performed an upgrade that went even better.
