Comments: QAD is the software which needs to be considered seriously when its about manufacturing.

Pros: ERP from QAD (in the past MFG/Pro) is providing great MRP functionality for more than 20 years now. Today this strong MRP is supported, surrounded and integrated with all key modern ERP features and functionalities. It will do its best to support you production processes but will be as well great tool to help you in finance/accounting and logistics.

Cons: If you would like to imagine an ERP software which can support every business in every process, it does not exist (yet?). QAD is for manufacturers and some distribution companies of right size (medium and big). For some processed maybe you will find even better support with external applications (like Advanced Production Planning, Product Life Management, Shop Floor Control). Theirs functionality will be integrated to QAD and you can decide what you really need.

My experience with QAD has been positive. While it is not visually appealing, it gets the job done.

Pros: It is a no nonsense software that can be edited to run the exact reports you are looking for. Once trained it is very easy to use. It also runs very fast. We use it to ship our customer orders so if the software stops, the money stops, and it has been very dependable for the last few years.

Cons: It's not pretty, sometimes the screen can look a little busy when you're only using one field. There are no indications when you have reached the end of your flow through so when you are training it can be difficult to know when you've completed your task.

Overall: Simple, quick, and easy to train new employees. It has made moving inventory very easy.

Pros: I used QAD for more than 6 years, the software is well designed for manufacturers. Beside the core functionality, I like that the user can make a simple customization to make the screens look different (change the font color).

Cons: I would say that QAD is not intuitive or user friendly. User have to search through the multiple screens to find the information that he/she is looking for. It took me some time to understand the way it's working. Personally, I don't like the design, it's sort of old school. We are about to update it for new version, I hope it will have less issues.

Once you are set up in QAD, and you have the correct modules and access, it is easy to use.

Pros: What I like the most about this software is the ability to review and dissect information regarding incoming parts, inventory, WIP, finished goods and even product that has already shipped.

Cons: We are sharing this software package with another site and this prevents us from making any changes to improve efficiency and/or streamline the process.

Overall: The ability to review, analyze, and report on questions regarding inventory, parts availability, and work in process. This information allows me to staff appropriately by making sure I have people in place where they are needed.

There's a lot of steps to processing items for finance, but it gets easier with time

Pros: I like how it gets easier to use with time. Running a financial takes seconds when you input the desired information in the queries.

Cons: I only use the Finance and Accounting category in the system. I heard it's not the most user-friendly software for finance and I 100% can attest to that. it takes a lot of steps to do a simple thing and if you make a mistake, you have to input twice as much time to fix it. I wish there was a cheat sheet to know the functions.

Pros: DynaSys is working well as a replacement for our forecasting software. We have also implemented production planning functionality and we are refining that now. Our operations require the DRP module to take full advantage. We will implement that as phase 2 soon.

Cons: We should have included DRP in our initial implementation. It is needed with our distribution network structure.

Also, some of the windows align strangely within my 2 monitor setup.

Overall: Forecasters (sales team) like it. Easier than prior system, saving them time.

Pros: I know that there are very few options out there that manage supply chain as well as QAD. It is compliant enough for regulatory standards and is able to keep track of thousands of materials and items for your company.

Cons: It is outdated and the support is tough to get through. There are many issues that should have been ironed out years ago. Hopefully there will be updates in the near future.
