Material Requirements Planning (MRP) software manages the material requirements for manufacturing processes. From planning manufacturing activities to purchasing and sales, MRP software aids the process from beginning to end. Common MRP functions include bills of material, compliance management, document management, forecasting, formula management, process manufacturing, product configurator, quality control, quote management, resource management, supplier management and supply chain management.
MRP is especially suited for companies with high demand and a growing number of orders. These companies find that tracking orders in an Excel spreadsheet become overwhelming, time-consuming and inefficient. Using an MRP software system reduces human error and provides a clear visual of every moving cog along the production line.
Do you read online reviews? Online reviews are extremely important. They help get the word out about a company's products and services. If you read them, pay it forward and give them as well. They help others find out — from their peers — the best fit for their company's business software needs.
Online reviews matter, according to research reported in Inc. magazine: "84 percent of people trust online reviews as much as friends."
In today’s marketplace, big legacy software companies, especially enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, can overshadow smaller companies. Case in point is Capterra business software reviews.
Here are a few examples of customer success stories.
The best part about xTuple software is xTuple the company. xTuple's approach to licensing and development is refreshing. There are very few ERP solutions where one can easily connect with the head of development and the company president.
Owner at Professional Services Corp.
xTuple is my current platform of choice. I like the platform and the ability to extend and customize as needed. The ability to customize allows us to integrate with other systems as requested by our customers.
Consultant at Professional Services Inc.
1. As a non-practicing CPA, I love that this system follows GAAP and is auditable.
2. The cost of the software is excellent in comparison to other ERP system on the market.
3. This company truly listens to their users on features and bugs. You have a proactive roll in the development of the software, which is refreshing.
4. In partner and customer training you actually get to meet and talk with the developers.
President at Technology Corp.
This software is developed with the highest quality standards. ...it helps developers to more easily build integrations and customizations. With some training, customizations can also be built by non-programmers.
President at Computer Consulting L.L.C.
It is easy to use (once the beginning numbers are in) and it makes a small company look larger due to the look and design of their forms (you can design your own as well). The functionality is incredible. The type of business we are in requires things that most software does not provide for which has made running our business quite a bit easier. We are a modification center and xTuple allows us to use different parts to make the same end product by using substitutions, this has been a tremendous help to us. They also have an "online university" where users can communicate with each other and xTuple themselves, that has proven to be extremely valuable. Many times the issue or question we have has already been dealt with through another customer and the answer sits right there, accessible to us. Overall xTuple has been great for us.
