Customer Support

Pros: Total integration between the different modules. I really appreciate the way the inventory items are automated with purchasing and shipping, so that the levels are automatically adjusted. Your tech support people are outstanding.

Cons: The usage manual could really use a few paragraphs that explain how the system is intended to work from start to finish. You have all of the elements in there, but their interaction is not extremely clear cut. It would be nice to see a sample job and verbally run it through the entire process from estimating to shipping to illustrate how the system ideally works in it's entirety.

Overall: Technical support is the reason why I rate the Ease of Implementation so high. I have never had a question or a problem that they couldn't eventually find a solution for.

Pros: On the broad spectrum, Smarter Manager is excellent software. It meets all our needs and then some.

Cons: The Report Writer is a good tool to use to make custom reports but it can be fairly difficult to navigate. There is a lot of trial and error for me to make my own report.

Overall: Smarter Manager is a great program for our manufacturing needs.
