Genius ERP

Enterprise resource planning for SME custom manufacturers

About Genius ERP

Genius ERP by Genius Solutions is an all-in-one, enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for small and medium custom manufacturers with features for managing inventory, projects, customers, employees, production processes, vendors, accounts, and more. The cloud-based tool is specifically designed for manufacturers handling make-to-order, engineer-to-order, custom-to-order and assemble-to-order projects within industries including machinery, transportation, food production, and more.

With the aim of helping businesses to manage and automate their manufacturing processes, Genius ERP facilitates project, customer, employee, and vendor management. The project management features within Genius ERP allow users to plan labor capacity, set and track goals, generate estimates, schedule tasks, track time, and more. Tools for quoting, estimating, invoicing, and shipping aid with managing vendors and customers, and real-time work orders and progress tracking allow businesses to keep their customers in the loop at all times. Automatic inventory tracking ensures that businesses can keep track of materials in real time, and alerts can be triggered for potential stock shortages, meaning users can carry out reorders and make price inquiries to vendors.

Genius ERP also offers tools for transforming CAD designs into bills of materials and requests for quotations in order to automate engineering processes and reduce data entry errors. The system also includes measures for quality control through automatic non-conformance reports and corrective action input and assignment. The Genius ERP production planning tools facilitate task scheduling based on capacity and other relevant metrics, prioritizing of workloads vs capacity, real-time monitoring of work-order completion, expense tracking for jobs, and more. Finances can be managed within Genius ERP with real-time, synchronous data entry for accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, and banking management.

    We have had a great experience with Genius. Their product consultants who helped us implement the software focused on how to develop processes through the software that solved some bottlenecks as well as gave us much better cost and hour tracking.

    Pros

    We chose Genius ERP because we are a custom, make to order manufacturer, and Genius allows us to design and release parts of the machines in Solidworks as they are complete to production. This allows us to manufacture complex machines in less time by getting a jump start on long lead items using just in time purchasing and production scheduling. Genius tracks all costs to each machine which gives great visibility into our margins that we can trace all the way to our financial reports.
    Genius ERP is utilized throughout all our business processes from customer order through to final shipment and invoicing and then flows through to our financial reports. With all employees working in a single integrated system, it has allowed our process flow to become smoother with less questions popping up across departments.

    Cons

    I would love to see them update the UI. There are lots of clicks required with each transaction.

    Overall, we are happy to be working with Genius ERP.
    It provide use with all the informations necessary to make decision regarding production and purchassing.
    Today we feel in control of our production cost and our inventory and can focus most of our time on product devellopment and in our continus improvement process.

    Pros

    I really like the simplicity of the software, it's simple and clear with the right amount of information on screen for the need of a small to mid-size business, it makes it easy to use for new employee. The UI is pleasant to use, and make it simple for user to find an option or to understand where to click.

    Technical support is quick to repond when you have a major issue.

    The transfert from engineering to manufacturing is fast and easy, the integration with Solidwork is simple tu use and makes it really .

    Cons

    I really don't like the fact that they make changes to the software and force sometime a way of working instead of adding a configuration option to let the user choose how he prefere the software to repond.

    They choose simplicity, but sometime it makes it diffcult to twaek the software to your need when it could have been achieved with a simple control box in the configuration menu.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Genius is not the best tool to follow inventory movements with custom reports (as SAP does it very well). It would be usefull to get features improved for that.

    Pros

    The low cost of annual license (compare to SAP or ORACLE) is the best argument to use Genius as we Don't have budget to use more expensive Tools like SAP or ORACLE.

    Cons

    It's very hard in Genius to follow inventory movements with custom reports with all relevant information in exportable format (Excel). For exemple, in SAP there is a transaction MB51 that is so usefull to produce custom reports to follow items with many parameters.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    Thanks for leaving us a review I want you to know that we take customer feedback seriously, especially when it shows us where we have room for improvement. I understand your concerns about the lack of custom reports to track inventory movements, and if you would like to get in touch with me at [email protected] we can talk more about these limitations.

    I am glad to see that you find our customer support to be very helpful, and I really do appreciate you taking the time to help us improve our product. - Jesse Linklater, Director of Marketing

    Genius ERP was meant to solve our COGS, BOM and Inventory issues. So far, we have not been using their financial module; which may put a damper on the cost of inventory. However, we have seen drastic changes and are optimistic about POSS' ERP system and its features going forward because of the implementation of Genius.

    Pros

    Genius ERP system is a user-friendly and customizable ERP system. We had many customizations that had to be done to fit our company, and Genius was able to fulfill and exceed expectations. The modules are easy to follow and it was a breeze to implement it within our team.

    Cons

    There are some technical issues which pop up that tend to take some time to fix. However, when they do fix it, they tend to go away and there is never repeating issues.

    Response from Genius Solutions

    It's great to hear that making the switch to Genius ERP has not only met but exceeded your expectations! Thanks for taking the time to leave us this review!
