Pros: I really like how customizable WorkWise is. We needed that flexibility in a software with full marketing integration within a CRM.

Cons: Its hard to find something that is wrong with it actually but if I had to give one complaint it would be sometimes it gets buggy and you have to restart and clear the cache. But this happens infrequently and does not affect our business at all.

Overall: Because of the email marketing feature we have been able to reconnect with old leads and find new leads in a easy and organized manner.

Our users love the new user interface via Workbenches. The product continues to evolve/get better!!

Pros: Love the Workbenches. Love the integrations with OnContact CRM. Love how accessible data is. Our user group is great and everyone participates. The data dumps to Excel have been huge for our company. Well done.

Cons: Need to really know the database when mining for data. When needing to delegate work I often find myself assisting with where to get the data from and making sure the table joins are correct.

Pros: The software is updated regularly and the development is really driven by the customers. It is on the leading edge of ERP systems for its target market. Many of the modules that are available address everything a manufacturer needs to run their business.

Cons: First, since they are consistently updating and modifying the software there is a good chance for bugs and problems. Second, scaling to thousands of users would be difficult, however, since it is targeted at the SMB market this may not be that much of an issue. Finally, it could be stronger in some of the data entry areas, sometimes it can seem overly complex to complete basic tasks.

Overall: The ability to run most of our processes through a single software package. Information visibility and reporting is very easy because of this.

Comments: WorkWise ERP has many strong modules to manage the floor, manage the financials and since it is SQL based, you can easily get at the data for custom reporting.

Pros: With the eProduction add on, the floor has a clean interface to interact with shop orders. The Workbenches give users control over how they work day to day.

Cons: Distribution Management is not present.

Pros: I love that this product can be used across our company. It allows us to integrate many of our areas into one centralized source. This helps with information flow to all parts of the organization.

Cons: I think there are some areas that have evolved quite nice with the product and other areas that could use some work still.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would offer that someone should extensively test the solution to make sure it meets the business needs and requirements. This software is highly powerful and I would make sure my employees get the proper training from the start to maximize the efficiency out of the starting blocks.

Pros: It's an intuitive product from a good, local vendor.

Cons: The current version has some security holes. As a publicly-held company, our SOX compliance will not tolerate this.

Recommendations to other buyers: Perform your evaluation methodically. This is a critical decision you'll live with for years to come.

Pros: One of the major advantages for me as a 9 year user of TCM is the close proximity of WorkWise to my facility. They have been very responsive to questions and providing explanations. As for the product, I have always said, "Someone smarter than me created this, so figure it out and use it." As a company, we have been involved with "WorkWise" before it was named "WorkWise." I believe we go back to the 1980's. Something must be working, because we have grown with the product and continue to add 'modules' and expand our daily use of TCM.

Cons: I have been asking for years for a "Bin-Location" maintenance area/screen so you do not have to enter item locations three times: Kanban, Primary Bin, and "IM" bin location. No Luck so far.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you load your system as detailed by WorkWise (very well, I might add), the effort you put into it will allow you to use so many functions. That is one thing I do truly like about the software. You can move from Inventory Control to Purchasing to Customer Order entries,Bills of Material to Routes, etc. with ease. A very useful, time-saving feature.

Pros: Workwise has made a commitment to continue to improve not only its existing modules but add new ones along the way. They have also started to work towards a Cloud solution. They are very responsive to our needs as a business and willing to work with us to make modifications where necessary to allow us continue to get better as a company.

Cons: Being a finance person, I find that their accounting/finance/general ledger module is not very robust. However, it is not our main driver, as we are able to get out of it what we need for now in this area.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure to interact a lot with your Workwise project manager and hold them accountable. Lean on them when things aren't quite going as planned, and they can help to redirect the project and get it back on track

Pros: Workwise Role-Based ERP is simple ERP software that is easy to use. Our new employees are able to understand the software and be functional users in a short period of time. Workwise continues to make investments and improvements in their software. And they listen to users when making improvements. The workbenches are one of the best enhancements they have made.

Cons: They still have modules in some applications that could be improved. I would like to see some budgeting/financial planning module.

Recommendations to other buyers: Role-Based ERP gives everything you need. Compare it to other large ERP systems. Other vendors need to have somebody on-site for months to implement, but not Workwise.

Pros: The product offers a robust set of tools, particularly on the manufacturing side of the software. WorkWise is an excellent software supplier who listens to the needs of the users and responds in a positive manner.

Cons: The product needs to be enhanced to fit the needs of publicly held companies, particularly in the area of SOX regulations related to system security. We have addressed this requirement with WorkWise, and are confident they will address this in a future release.

Recommendations to other buyers: The best recommendation I can provide is to not expect an off-the-shelf ERP package to address every need your organization may have. You will likely need to change certain processes to fit the parameters of the software.
