Pros: It works fine and has a lot of features and functions, so you can set it up as you want it - and that even includes the free version we use. Fantastic!
The program has been quite stable and reliable - and the few times we needed help, we got excellent support. That is great, especially as we only used the free version so fare.

Cons: With so many features and functions, it takes a bit of time to understand and figures out how it works.

Overall: It helps us on daily bases with our logistics. Due to SpendMap we got control of our purchases (full control over all placed orders and, even more important, what we have/have not received). It is also nice that it is easy to make reports, e.g. of what we have not received. That save us a lot of time following up our suppliers .

Pros: Was sceptical that this Free Software would do what it said it would, but I have had to eat my words because quite honestly there are no limits imposed and to be honest, utilising this software has not only saved us time and money but has allowed us to improve the systems and controls we currently use. We have used paid for software within our Purchase Department in the past but every system we implemented was met with complaints so I did not have high hopes for this "Free" one. I was wrong however and the system is extremely popular with all the staff, so much so that we are about to go for the full "Paid for Package". The free version has all the functions and controls you would expect in a professional package and it is safe to say that if you need a Purchase Order system that this package will legitimately give you everything you need.

Normally free software comes with quite poor support but with software the support has been excellent both online and via email. When I have needed assistance with a feature response has generally been within a couple of hours via email (allowing for time differences).

Cons: There is a bit of set up required before implementing fully and it may be necessary for some support if you are not very IT literate. The Setup Wizard however will get you through most of the initial installation with ease.

Overall: The software allowed us to get control of all the functions within our Purchase Department, saving both time and money.

Great free purchasing software.

Pros: For a free version of purchasing software, SpendMap has all the features we need to track and control our purchasing. We can easily run reports with a good variety of filters to look at past records on purchasing, vendors, cost centers, etc. Using SpendMap has enabled us establish company wide budgets and easily monitor how each area's budgets are progressing. This is tremendously helpful software for our moderate size operation.

Cons: The only drawback in the free version is the inability to link directly to Quickbooks Online Version. I understand that ability is available in the paid version.

Great Purchase Order software from people who really care about their customers.

Pros: I've had the pleasure of using this software over the years in organizations ranging from 10 people to tens of thousands of employees. It's a powerful and reliable procurement tool and comes with great support. That they are bringing this experience to the SMB space with a totally free version is just the latest sign of SpendMap's industry leadership and innovative thinking. Anyone looking to automate their Purchase Orders and related processes would be well served by giving it a try.

Cons: As with most software like this, there's some up-front set up before you can start processing your Purchase Orders. Similar to an ERP/Accounting system, where you have to set up users, suppliers, items/products, etc. Nice to see that they added a Setup Wizard recently.

Overall: A significant reduction in manual effort to manage our Purchasing, better control over our spending, and better visibility into what's going on.
